This is totally me at work
i love the fact that viktor burns his own fortress because until then, all the towns you’ve seen have been burned and defeated by luca. of course they were defeated by luca, but viktor is like, ‘haha i burn down my own fort’.
i also like the parallels between the first game of when you first meet…
Viktor is a boss. A rad, adorable, craft loving boss.
I’m having way too much fun with this.
I love all of these *_*
The Story of How I Gave My Life to Skyrim: an autobiography by me, to be released never, because I am playing Skyrim now.
Fiiiiinally got around to putting up the photos from my very first cosplay ever, General Odessa Silverberg. This cosplay was made with the help of white-room and photos were taken by idontreallycomehereanymore.
Both myself and white-room are amateurs when it comes to sewing, so this was a learning curve for us! Everything except the dress and and boots were sewn by us. The waist cincher was the most challenging aspect of the costume and was only achieved with help from white-room's mum, the sewing oracle.
There are parts of the cosplay I am not 100% happy with, and I have never really posed for photos before so there are things I need to learn about make up and positioning of my face. I plan on taking more photos in the future of this cosplay so I can do better justice to this great character and parts of the cosplay that aren’t seen in these photos. For instance, I handmade Odessa’s earrings after finally managing to find a screen shot of them in the Suikoden Japanese OP movie from the Sega Saturn release, and the wig blocks them in every photo :(
Nevertheless, I am proud of this cosplay. I first played Suikoden when I was 7 years old and Odessa was immediately my favourite character. Being 7, I can’t really say what it was exactly that made me like her so much at the start, but as a 25 year old now I can say she is my favourite because she is a strong woman who did her best to make a difference in the world, and even though she lost her own life in the end she never regretted the choice she made. She fought for what she believed in and managed to start something that changed the country and people’s lives. She was and is my hero.
Suikoden holds a very special place in my heart because it was something I turned to when I was suffering in the real world. It was one of the final things me and my older sister were able to bond over before she turned on me because of my mental illness. It is full of bittersweet memories for me and I will never stop loving the series because it helped me through so much.
So finally I am happy present my cosplay, the one thing I originally made this blog for! I hope that you enjoy the photos :)
"It’s a bit too early to see Odessa again…
… our reunion can wait until I become a better man”
I read this in a food court on my phone during my lunch break,and I cried.
OMG I love the last pic! And now it make me curious, when Luc is not beside her, who will do Leknaat’s hair…?
And the fourth one! Bocchama’s smile really kill me aaaaaaaaaaaargh o””<-<
Love these! Who is that with Tir though?
I like to believe Flik is thinking “Damn that Nina…..stole my bandanna and washed it…..now I”m going to be late to the war council…Viktor will never let me hear the end of this.”
Also the piece with Luc and Leknaat is so sweet. They must have had some good times before Luc went all existential angsty.
LOOK AT THOSE PIXELS THOUGH
Flik is gr8
IM SO SAD NOW BECAUSE I WAS THINKING WHAT IF ODESSA WAS ALIVE
AND THEN IT MADE ME THINK HOW MUCH HAPPIER FLIK WOULD’VE BEEN
THE KIDS THEY COULD’VE HAD
THE WORDS THEY COULD’VE HAD
AND HE LOVED HER SO MUCH
THEY COULD’VE BEEN THE BADASS COUPLE AND HAVE THE CUTEST / STRONGEST UNITE ATTACK.
WHY SUIKODEN WHYYYYYYYYYYY
Trying to imagine dad!Flik
Odessa goes out one day to get a break from the kids and she comes home and the house is a mess and food is everywhere…..because Flik panicked and asked Viktor to help him babysit, and Viktor had some interesting ideas for games the kids could play…..
Ultimate Rad Dad and Buff Uncle team go go!
