Cosplayer Vikki > Costume of Dante from Devil May Cry 4
About this Costume
- Construction Details:
- Constructed entirely from head to toe except for the shoes. The coat is made of real cowhide, which proved to be the biggest pain in the butt material I've ever worked with. The ribbing is fully sewn in and the coat design is entirely original (no pattern). The pants are made of red suede, black pvc/pleather, and genuine sheepskin red leather; the bootcovers have the correct pattern fully sewn into them (which took 4 1/2 hours of work). The shirt is made of black costume snakeskin suede and the chest buckles made of craft foam. The belt buckle is resin-cast from a mold made of clay. Underneath everything is a muscle suit made of muslin and cotton to bulk out my shoulders, arms, and back. Ebony and Ivory are being improved in the future; the current set are made from carved foam, coated with window silicone, and hand-painted. I experienced multiple setbacks since I'd never worked with foam before, so the next set will be larger, smoother, and genuinely better-looking than this. The sword was made by Lionel and my makeup was done by starlighthoney.
- Personal Thoughts:
- My DMC4 group - StarlightHoney, Lady Ava, rukawagf, and breathelessaire - were freaking amazing and I want to thank them so much for all their hard work and effort.
