[Elsword] Costume Design Contest 2014 - Elesis by venom00 [Elsword] Costume Design Contest 2014 - Elesis by venom00
My entry for Elsword Online (NA)'s Costume Contest 2014.

I didn't think much when I decided to join, aside from the fact that I wanted to use a certain old design and test my luck with it (you probably can dig it up in my gallery ^ ^!). The name "Void"  here can be interpreted in more than one way. First is a non-Elsword-related nod to the character Speare Redcross I designed. Second is a related nod to the kingdom of Velder, where you only see medieval/fantasy patterns, thus devoid of the modern touch. The costume is made with comfortability as the foremost priority, so I keep it as simple as possible without being too plain. I also gave her hair a side tail--which is honestly kinda moe for her--since the item mall of the game has long flowing hair available already. This going with the tomboy costume, gives the feeling of a brave girl who tries her best to be headstrong, yet still has attractive feminine qualities of a young girl.

The claymore--well for that size maybe it's more of a nodachi instead lol--was inspired from Misuzu Kusakabe's Kashagiri Hiromitsu dual reinforced blade. I didn't like the way the smaller blade of Misuzu's katana was positioned above the main blade, so I made a reverse design instead. From a realistic perspective, this design is illogical of course (since the small blade will most likely break from pressure after a few clashes), but since this isn't reality, I guess *ss-pulls are just fine... Sort of. At any rate, the idea behind the sword structure is a weapon with absolute offensive power. The small blade is like an ultra thin layer of razor blade that can easily split steel at a molecular level, allowing the main part of the sword to slice through without much efforts. To accomplish this, the razor blade is made of a special metal that can be hardened almost instantly, allowing it to be forged right on the spot, so even if it's broken upon impact, it can still be reforged immediately. Of course, since materials don't grow on trees, limited use is still recommended.

Hey Takezoku, someone tried to resubmit this entry in the 2015 contest in the Elesis section. [They did a terrible job trying to edit your water mark off]

I sent in the ticket already, but I think more tickets would help especially a ticket from the original creator.

Oopsie, sorry for the late reply. That one is an auto-fail so I'm content with just someone noticing it. I appreciate your vigilance.

Slightly on-topic, good luck to both the costume contest and Eldoodle ^^
