This is old, from 2008/09

I have never seen this picture before until someone I dint know put it on facebook! I'm so glad someone did though because it's really the only good picture I have of this cosplay. Do keep in mind this is old, it was from the first time I debuted with this outfit, and I'm currently in the works of re-doing this cosplay.

This costume took both a lot of time, and completed in record time, haha. I unfortunately didn't clock the hours, but it was three months in the working, but boiled down to finishing it inside of 3 weeks. I'm not sure of the exact amount of fabric, but I guestimate roughly 3 yards of blue, and 5~6 of white. The shoulder pads where done by molding the shape from wonderflex, then patterning the fabric around it.

The character is Saber from Fate/Stay Night

As much as loved the original Saber, i was drawn into Saber Extra a lot more, she was a mix between Blue Saber's stubbornness and Gilgamesh's Arrogance. I have a feeling she'd do much better in that conversation of kings from Fate Zero.

haha, i agree! i cant judge too much because i havent played fate extra, but i do see a turn in personality that i am a fan of. however, most of fate extra seems questionable to me. I actually do not understand saber very much, she is a tough character for me to grasp. i get along more with rin's character. But i choose to cosplay saber as a way to try and identify with her, if that makes any sense.

I always figured some cosplayers were out to capture the character essence. That's the beauty of some of Nasu's designs, they are very deep on a personal level, so its easy to find yourself relating too them. Gilgamesh is my favorite servant, but i can't identify with that much, his arrogance is much over the top, but it's why i love em.
