Alexandra's SCVI CaS Showcase

Alright everybody, I've got a few recreations to share. Some are just recreations I never put up in this thread, updated versions of ones I've posted before and others are brand new ones that I've worked on recently.

Sophitia SCI 2P
Pretty standard recreation. This game desperately needs the pareo skirt back from SCV. I changed the skirt design slightly to make the outfit more cohesive in its SCVI iteration.

Sophitia SCII 2P
It's taken me nearly 9 months to successfully make this costume in SCVI, and I couldn't be happier with the turnout. It's the closest I've gotten to making a realistic but flattering version of one of my favorite of Sophitia's designs. While the white stripe across her chest from the off the shoulder dress bothers me a bit, I'm willing to forgive it.

Sophitia SCII 3P
This recreation required some artistic liberties be taken to recreate Sophitia's bonus costume from SCII. I played with the idea of adding patterning to the skirt and top but decided the costume looked better as a minimalistic design.

Sophitia SCIII 1P
After trying countless times to elevate this design and add a 3D breastplate, I've found the stickered version is somehow more realistic.

Sophitia SCIII 2P
This costume has been made a few times on the boards but I wanted to update mine with a brighter color palette more in line with the real design. The concept art for the outfit is much easier to find, but it features much darker shades than those featured in-game.

This is just a first attempt but I hope I'll be able to make a more complete look with some critiques from the board.

Ivy SCIV 2P
Definitely needs added detail but I'm pretty happy with the results. I've been missing the Belle Boots since SCV and would trade almost any shoe we have for female CaS to get those back.

Quick update thanks to Cassandra's new items! These are pretty same-y but I figured I might as well share them.

I basically wanted to see if I could find a good use for the tiara and ended up playing around with Cassandra's stocking equipment.

Another small update!

Sophitia SC 3P
Took some liberties on the chestpiece and tassets as we don't really have anything perfect for the outfit. It kills me that we haven't gotten Goddess' Blessing yet considering they've put several items from SCIV (Voldo's submission mask) into the game.

Updated Tira 2P
I fooled with the color scheme a bit and switched out her gloves. The outfit works much better and is less garish without the ketchup/mustard palette from before

Updated Amy 2P
I decided to scrap the princess look I did initially and gave Amy a French huntress inspired costume. While playing round with color schemes, I ended up using the default colors on the patterned accents of her costume.

Holy cow, I always lurk silently in this thread because your work is so great, but that Amy 2P is just so strikingly beautiful and fitting that I have to comment! I just adore everything about it; the wealthy French influence, the clothing, the colouring, the hair...it's so gorgeous!

Thank you so much! I wanted to give her something different than what she normally wears since we’re used to seeing her purples and pinks almost exclusively.

Quick update with a new OC since I've started learning Geralt's style:

Marina, a flamboyant spellsword (I do mean spell) mercenary fighting in the Spanish armada. She's searching for another sorcerer who has been wreaking havoc on King Philip's fleet in the name of the English crown. We'll be seeing him in another update soon...

As always a sight to behold, very elegantly designed...
My intention with every design is to make something that fits the setting, themes and overall tone of the series but also could be high fashion from modern times. Usually I'm successful. Usually.

Thank you for the kind words! My inspiration for Marina's costumes was recent Gucci campaigns and collections over the last few years.

Is the 2P Monk Hood meant to be some kind of turban? I need clarification. But the Slit Skirt working with the Night Butterfly Dress is always elegant.

The Benevolence Pauldrons do stick out to me in a distracting way, but I love what you have going on otherwise.

Yes it is supposed to be kind of like a hair wrap, think something similar to this:

That’s a brilliant use of it. I wish the Night Butterfly Dress didn’t have fur though. I don’t know if your intended image was meant to have it. It looks a bit winters.

Thank you!

The fur is semi-intentional. My vision for Marina's 2P was to have a layered witchy, flowy outfit that was still opulent and extravagant. The fur sold me on combining the Slit Skirt and Night Butterfly Dress.

I've begun the long and difficult process of crafting 3P costumes for the cast (as well as an update to Cassandra's 2P). My main takeaway so far is that we desperately need more parts, specifically for male characters. Without further ado, here a few of the decent designs I've pumped out.

Cassandra 2P hair/weapon change
SOULCALIBUR™Ⅵ_20190829143423.jpg

Sophitia 3P
Gladiator/Soul Blade-inspired with the color palette of her SCII 2P. I wanted to make a harness via stickers and the zippers turned out amazing when shifted to the right tone/shade. The necklace clips a bit but it isn't as noticeable during actual gameplay.

Someone finally found a use for the Sanctified “Cuirass” on women! I mean seriously, what the heck was that even supposed to be for? That gear as a necklace is simply brilliant.

Cassie’s surcoat too was given a good use I think. I see what you did with the mask too...

Miss Xianghua’s ponytail. Made her look more warrior-like than some random cute Chinese girl. Smart choice combining whatever undershirt she’s wearing with her default gloves to give short sleeves.

Raphael’s is simple, but makes sense for a nobleman to be on the run. He’s not a vampire yet, but you were able to give him more familiar colors. Did you do something to his face? He looks healthier or something. Lips might stand out though depending on which makeup you used.

Again appreciate the simplicity with Mi-Na. Hate that the breastplate floats. Not much to say but the robe adds a touch of elegance while the armor and boots reinforce she’s a warrior.

Thank you for always giving such detailed critiques/responses! I decided to just respond to each section individually:

Someone finally found a use for the Sanctified “Cuirass” on women! I mean seriously, what the heck was that even supposed to be for? That gear as a necklace is simply brilliant.
Some attempt at a sexy breastplate? It sits in such a weird position that it makes so sense as a middle chestpiece and cover absolutely NOTHING. I have to admit it's nice for detailing, though.

Cassie’s surcoat too was given a good use I think. I see what you did with the mask too...
I wanted the outfit to be reminiscent of her SCII debut but have a more grownup feel. The cleric themes have always been a bit present in Cassie's designs and I was so disappointed when those concept arts came out years back. The mask motif is a really easy way to make customs seem more Cassandra now that it's a canon part of her story.

Miss Xianghua’s ponytail. Made her look more warrior-like than some random cute Chinese girl. Smart choice combining whatever undershirt she’s wearing with her default gloves to give short sleeves.
I'm so tired of Xianghua's designs using only two hairstyles: bowl cuts and the short hair with long tails in the front. She's supposed to be a military officer, so short hair makes sense, but I feel like those hairstyles don't reflect her personality.

Raphael’s is simple, but makes sense for a nobleman to be on the run. He’s not a vampire yet, but you were able to give him more familiar colors. Did you do something to his face? He looks healthier or something. Lips might stand out though depending on which makeup you used.
I threw a lipstick facepaint on him to make his mouth less purple. The issue is all the lip paints are a bit sheer so the colors blend with the natural shade of character models' lips. The pinker color stands out more for sure but it's better than him looking dead.

Again appreciate the simplicity with Mi-Na. Hate that the breastplate floats. Not much to say but the robe adds a touch of elegance while the armor and boots reinforce she’s a warrior.
I'm planning to work on her more to create an apron/tank-top dress similar to her SCII 2P. I was really excited to discover the unique belt effect stacking that robe with the Training Belt, but I need to make the design more stylized to complement the belt.

Alex your designs are always so charming and well though-out, i wonder if you work in fashion sometimes :)
Pret-à-porter as we say in french, ya know.
Formidable ! XD
Soph 3P and especially Xiang steal the show, that makeup is irresistible...

Thank you so much Vil! I used to be a women's department lead at Urban Outfitters so technically yes, I did work in fashion :)

Sophie's 3P is one of my favorite creations I've ever done!
