Ivy Valentine: I'm Not Here To Play With You by BelleChere Ivy Valentine: I'm Not Here To Play With You by BelleChere
Character: Isabella 'Ivy' Valentine
Video Game: Soul Calibur II
Photographer Credit: Emerald Coast Cosplay

About the Costume: Two yards of metallic purple lycra, sheer black lycra for the front panel, and various scraps of matte black lycra. Wig cut and styled by me. Sword is made from insulation foam covered in polycarbonate sheeting, a wooden dowel, coil conduit, and silver ventilation-repair tape. Armor was made from Wonderflex and covered in metallic gold lycra. All made by me.

About the Picture: When some people see this picture (or any other of me in this outfit) they assume I'm full of confidence or constantly seek attention. Not true! In every day life I'm a jeans and t-shirt girl, modest and pretty unassuming. When I first wore Ivy, I was questioning whether or not I could actually leave the hotel room and walk around dressed like this. But I love Ivy, and I tried to channel some of the character's confidence, and in the end I was glad I left the room! A couple years later, I refitted the outfit, and this picture was the result, taken at DragonCon in 2011.

If you ever have a question about my costumes, feel free to ask! :)

That looks really hard to take off and put on, but worth it. I see, you cosplayed as her because you really like the creativity of the character and you want to show some respect for the creators. I would be so honored if I was the person who made up Ivy.
