SoulCalibur Ivy Cosplay
Isabella Valentine, or Ivy, is one of the main and most noticeable characters of the SoulCalibur series. She first appeared in the very first part of the franchise, in 1998.Over the game’s history, she was trying to find Soul Edge — a magic sword believed to grant its owner with eternal youth. However, the sword, in fact, devoured souls and Ivy swore to destroy it. In the end, she was killed but managed to stay alive with the help of an artificial soul she created. So, Ivy is naturally undead being always 32.
Ivy can’t be called a hero as her methods of achieving goals are often questionable. She’s more the antagonist of the series. Anyway, cosplayers often portray her because of the combination of her beauty and harsh fate.
Arina Ryabinina is not a cosplayer, she is a professional model from Russia that has been working on every Igromir (the biggest Russian game show) since 2006. In 2011, as part of SoulCalibur 5 PR campaign, she has created an image of Ivy. Even after seven years, this character performed by Arina is perceived as a high-grade cosplay. Note that SoulCalibur is not as popular in Russia as Mortal Kombat or Tekken, so artists rarely cosplay characters from this fighting game.
The SoulCalibur is very popular in the US and Europe. One cosplay artist from Italy named herself after her favorite character. Unlike Lera Orlova or Tanya Croft, Ivycosplay works not only with one character but with Ivy remaining her main.
Crystal Graziano, also known as Cosfx, is a female cosplayer from San Diego. She constantly experiments with images, tries on the roles of varied sexy characters, and her fans always accept her new works.
Most cosplay girls are beauties with a thin waist. However, there is an exception to every rule. This applies to Belle Chere, whose figure differs from those that we got used to seeing. She is working at popular gaming festivals, has created dozens of cosplays and has got 23,000 subscribers on Instagram. This gives us an idea that guys are into different girls.
Alena ‘’AsherWarr’’ Polutorova is one of the few Russian female cosplayers who created the image of Ivy. Her hobbies are not limited to cosplaying video game characters. In fact, the girl participates in historical medieval battles (WMFC). At the same time, Alena knows how to surprise her fans. There are a lot of cosplays from different game universes in her portfolio. But we are primarily interested in her Ivy cosplay.
