Mistral Cosplay by Si3art Mistral Cosplay by Si3art
Buh... Uhh... So yeah. This is the cosplay I've been working on for the last two months- absolutely :|

Cosplay of Mistral, from the game Metal Gear Rising.:heart:
Some more pics at my fb album->…

Beware of the photobomber cords and wires.

The last two weeks I've been up until Every.Day. WHEN WILL THIS NIGHTMARE ENDDDDD? D:>
I didn't have a proper summer because of this. >:I

My very first cospaly choise for this year was actually Geth Prime (mass effect3), because I just loveeee the armor design, but around ~20 July I realised... That I don't care about this game. At all. It just came out on PlayStation Plus too and then it was clear...
If I'll make a cosplay, then it shall be of a character who has an epic desing and comes from a game I absolutely love.
And oh my gosh Mistral~ I.L.U.~ Such an epic smexed up character full of Metal Gear'ish details~ And ohohoo those hands~ I wanted to do Screaming Mantis last year, but Mistral... Dayum~ 8D :heart:

Also, don't have better pics of this costume... Jet. But I have planned a photoshoot... In the very near future. 8D

Uhh.... This is one of 'dem cosplays that started out as a fun cosplay project for the love of the character design+game and is an absolute pain to complete. I wonder why most peeps don't mention the "blood, sweat and tears" part... Especially with big detailed, time consuming cosplays like this... Maybe it's just me then... Yeah, that's gotta be it. I'M SO FED UP. :|
And the damn strap under the breast kept slipping down. >>>:((((

URRGGGGGHHHH! I completed the body/catsuit part in 3 days (only three days, can you even belive it?! : o) and been making those damn hands all this time. DEM HANDS. I love hands tho. <3
These are made in the papier mache way- from newspapers and white glue, filled with makroflex (expansive foam?) and the elbow joints move a little. The hands are removable- the whole connection thingamajig was done with bottles and bottlecaps. Jep. :|


Made this for Animatsuri 2013 Eurocosplay qualifiers contest, and... I won~ So, I'm the estonian qualifier and maybe some of you will see me at London expo in october~ Again~ 8D

Also trying to do the armpole and one dwarf geko And oh gosh, you have no idea how much space all the hands take... D:<

HAAAAHHHHHH.... Yeah. This is one of them love-n-hate costumes. :meow:

-Next time, don't make a cosplay with 7 pairs of prop hands. :|

No, unfortunately I only saw you during the competition and I was too far back to get any good pictures :(

Njawws... but hey, at least you saw me from afar~ 8DD

And I always love getting messages like " oh, hey, you're that gal over there, right, I saw you in dat cosplay"~  :dummy:

I heard later that there was one girl who was looking forward to get a pic with me in that cosplay... but she never saw me at that day. : /

Well you did it... you actually went and made all her goshdarn arms! I actually thought nobody would be crazy enough to attempt a full Mistral costume, ...but I was mistaken. :) Fantastic! and you, or whoever the model is, actually look like Mistral! damn, she's definitely one of my fave sexy psycho chicks from games. Love all MG games, and MGR in my view, has the best designs, so much so they inspired my own art. ^_^

Ahh deem... I haven't replied for so long... :s

Buuut, yeah, I made the arms and model here is me~ :dummy:
All MGS games have super designs (and I just love those little bar codes and texts everywhere), but as soon as I saw Mistral, I just knew I HAD to make a proper cosplay of her and those arms looked so tempting to make~ :giggle:

Oh gosh... Impressive gallery, mate! Especially the newest creations! Got my cosplay senses all tingling... Gosh, those insect/alien armor designs... Haha, yes, I can see MGR in them. ;)

All good,

Hah, I like the little texts, barcodes and such too, wonder why that is... I really don't know, but those tiny details somehow add something slick and modern to the designs.

Thanks! yeah, I got majorly inspired by MGRR, so I did the Cyborg... all inspired and stuff, and yeah, it was a fun design.

My bug mecha things, they just had to jump out of this head of mine somehow, love designing those. :)

How... how you make such a wonderful thing -wipes away tears- so beautiful. But is there anyway you could make a tutorial on the arms and heels? I really want to cosplay Mistral and I know im gonna have a hard time T_T OH!! Did you make the back connector thing?
