Cosplay: Talim - Action Stance by ryosama Cosplay: Talim - Action Stance by ryosama
This is one of my favorite shots of this costume. I'm Talim from Soul Calibur II (VG), one costume I'm still quite proud of. However, it is somewhat retired due to the fact that some of it is in pieces. Redoing parts to make it fit better, especially since now I have a few more sewing skills learned... hah!

The tonfas are actually weighted, which I like. My dad and I made them, using plywood as a base and molding/sanding Bondo on them to give more shape. The handles are from an old pair of cutting shears. My mom painted the detailed designs.

The hair pieces were made from napkin holders, foamie, and paperclay. Inverted spikey hair rollers were used to keep the hair pieced attached to the wig.

The wig was styled by Megumibish. The necklance was made by Kyandi.

Talim is my favorite girl in SC2. She was the first one I became decent playing as, and apart from Necrid and maybe Yun Seung she is the best in the game with me at the controller. I'd like to believe.

I didn't think anybody could fit to my taste when cosplaying Talim. Turns out I was wrong, and glad am I for that.
