So years ago I recorded a SoulCalibur III video: Taki vs Noob Saibot. Years later, I decided to try my hand at giving Taki a Noob Saibot cosplay:
The Holy blue aura and Mekki-Maru's violet aura really look so good with the all black outfit; the combination of the cursed bird leotard and the Seong sarong with the benevolence arm guards and partial shadow leg guards feel like a good fit… and hide the "cracks" where the large square projected stickers don't cover her skin for some reason (which otherwise covers her head to toe — it just seems to be divided into "sections").
I'm honestly of half-a-mind to make this my new desktop wallpaper; I never even noticed the waterfall before, but it reminded me of Smoke's secret location in Mortal Kombat: Shaolin Monks.
A pair of apples with the Basic #1 gradient pattern to give her eyes a bluish-white look — makes me wish the pure ring would still glow as it had in SoulCalibur V, and of course losing them to armor break is a pain; still, it's great that her eyelids will blink over them. Part of me is still kind of iffy with regards to her "turtle shell hood," yet I can't bring myself to get rid of it.
