HappyColour Soulcalibur Custom Costume Reskins

How likely would one who has not played SC be to think my designs are base game character costumes?

UPDATED UNDER ARMOUR
save_132~3.jpg

I am not one to 'sexualize' my costumes and I generally move away from it, but I found there is something that simply works so well with nipples on a mermaid, it really aligns well with the mythos of the creature. Hence my I ended up landing on this simplistic creation.

Note: Last photo is of costume completely broken down, I honestly don't like how this looks right now, and just brain strormed an alternative cool idea to work on the stickers on the under armour which I will update if I can make it work.

Note 2: The original inspiration of this costume came from a costume of Vilarcane's in which he imbedded the fish in the bottom of the character to add the tail addition. This really inspired me to try something similar on my own, and this is what I landed on. ALL HAIL VILARCANE MASTER OF COSTUMES!!!! :D

This looks good and the embedded fish blends in nicely...like the branchiae using the scar stickers, remembers of my sharkalibur's. You got a nice set of Hildes !

Thanks Vil! I actually used 2 fish, as I'm sure you can tell, one for the butt, and the other for the chest.

As a side I discovered some very interesting CAS tech when I was building this that I didn't know about. Check it out:

Not that it's not excellent work, like always Happy, but what's with all the fish ladies of late, guys? I'm having a hard time sticking to my commitment not to go for all the obvious jokes about how quarantine repression of needs is influencing your behaviour. :D

Edit: Oh and to respond to your inquiry, I like the first and second iterations of the scale armour over the third, for my opinion.

Funny that you mention that, I initially tried to use Sea Star stickers to make a bikini version of underwear, but the stickers on the scale pattern comes off very whonky. I really wish we could apply different patterns to stickers. That would be revolutionary!!!

These are already costumes that I have shared previously, but I just started fiddling around with Nvidia Ansel on my PC and damnnnnnnnnnn can you take pretty pictures!!! I decided to copy a few of my costumes over to PC to take some nice high resolution shots, find them below.

Nice pics, you "captured" their beauty hild-eed :)

Thank you my friend, Ansel is an amazing tool, it really allows the magic to happen. I feel like it is such an advantage to CAS creators as a way to show off their costume details. It would be amazing if there was some equivalent that was useable across all platforms and technologies.

Honestly, one thing I have learned about CAS creation the more and more I have gotten into it, is how much appreciation and capability of CAS is limited by not only the knowledge of CAS creation techniques and the ability to notice details, but as well the technology itself that people use to access it.

For example, people that are utilizing an Xbox One or S, or PS4 are at a significant detriment when designing their CAS in comparison to PC, Xbox One X, and PS4 Pro simply due to the limited resolution the platform offers. And further, the system itself aside, even the TV makes a significant difference.

For example, all my CAS are designed on an Xbox One X on a OLED 4K TV that has been optimized from a colour perspective, and I find that the details that I can see and in game play are exceptional in comparison to my PC monitor. There is NO way people that are playing on a standard HD TV using an Xbox One or S would be able to discern the details that I do.

This is just another reason that reinforces in my eyes, the very personal nature of CAS creation, it simply is not an equal playing field and we are all looking at it from a different angle.

Anyhoo.... just getting philosophical now! :D

I almost have the exact same setup ! Oled 4k 3Dtv and xb1x and 5.1 home cinema speakers and SW...so i can totally relate and agree ! Also when creating i suggest spotify ... I like town musics album from kingdom come masterpiece of a game on oneX, or viking music from skald (gleipnir, niu...) very inspiring and allows 2 focus...hate typing on controller grrr....

I haven't been making many more costumes, as I have been too enthralled taking photos in Ansel of my old ones! :D But I do have two new ones to share today, but before that allow me to showcase some of my old costumes brought over in Ansel.

Note: You will notice some slight differences between the above final photo, and some of the Ansel photo shoot photos. After completing the photo shoot I went back and made some minor modifications to the outfit including: changing the head piece design, minor sticker placement adjustments, and minor colour blending. The above is what I landed on but I didn't want to redo the photo shoot as it is really such subtle differences. As another side, I actually think that this is one of my top 5 creations! Really proud of it!

Note: I didn't showcase these costumes being broken down as it is a bit of a pain to do in Ansel, however as per my standard creation philosophy they have been made to maintain consistent costume theme across breakdown stages. This was extra challenging with the earth themed costume in particular.
