Mirrored. by cupcake-rufflebutt Mirrored. by cupcake-rufflebutt
Myself as Karin Koenig from Shadow Hearts: Covenant. Photo taken by Claire [final_memories] at Anime Expo 2006. My reflection in these tinted windows reminds me vaguely of the game's Mirror Castle. Granted, it's been a very long time since I last played SH2! ^__^ One day I'd like to organize a cosplay group for this series. These poor games get so little love, and it's a downright shame. Costume constructed by myself; sword constructed by John [Nekkid_Ichigo].

Please no critiques/criticism; I'd like to keep this gallery happy! <3

OMG I love Shadow Hearts/Koudelka saga! I have all those games and I loved the stories and characters, and the music. I also want to make SH cosplay someday. I thought about Kurando, Karin, Hildegarde and Keith Valentine, since those are my favorite characters.

I think these games are awesome - the second is my favorite. :D

Great Karin!

The second is also my favourite, though I have to admit I've only played a few hours of the first. I'm hoping to play through them all chronologically once I finish replaying FFVII. ^__^

My friend let me play this game one night, and I've been hooked ever since. Unfortunately, buying my own copy has been....difficult. Nearly impossible to find.

Karin definitely has one kick-butt costume, and you've certainly done it justice. Well done! :heart:

OH MIRROR CASTLE. How I did not love you at ALL. <3

I would totally be in for a SH2 group at some con in the near-distant future. I still loooooooove your Karin; it's gotta be one of my favorite of your costumes.

Hahah, Mirror Castle creeped me out so bad, and I remember getting really lost. We should definitely combine forces for SH shenanigans in the future! Have you played the first game? I think you would make a pretty Alice. <3
Reply
:iconirishais:
irishais Featured By Owner Oct 19, 2009
I haven't yet! I actually really wanted to dress up as Alice when I saw her in bits and pieces in SH2, so that works out well! :D

I was okay in Mirror Castle, but for some reason, the one area where you have to find all those chess pieces threw me off SO BADLY. I ended up consulting a walkthrough the entire time with that one.

Thanks! Ironically, I'm going to be sacrificing that wig for an upcoming cosplay. ^__^; Since I don't wear Karin anymore, I figure it will be a better alternative than shelling out a bunch of money on a new wig.

You definitely should, it's fantastic! I love that colour of wig, myself. I actually dyed my hair that shade of red for about half a year. ^__^

Its a lovely shade tho, I would have probably dyed my hair that colour too.

Shadow Hearts 2 cosplay. A group? Isn't that the game with the really really really really gay wrestler from India?


Wow you're still up :shock:

:iconcupcake-rufflebutt:
cupcake-rufflebutt Featured By Owner Oct 17, 2009  Hobbyist Artisan Crafter
You're thinking of Joachim Valentine, though I wouldn't classify him as gay or from India. He's a very silly muscleman-vampire who uses random large objects [a locker, frozen fish, and submarine, among others] as weapons. ^__^ There's a different member of the Valentine family in each Shadow Hearts game, but Joachim's my fave. <3

I had a furlough day today, so I ended up sleeping and being a lazy butt. Now I can't go to sleep. Wah.

:icongeronkizan:
GeronKizan Featured By Owner Oct 17, 2009
No no no no not Joachim his teacher. Didn't you continue onto his sidequest "THE MAN FESTIVAL" where he proves his ultimate worth against his teacher (the gay indian wrestler) "The Great Question?!" In the name of Strength, these muscles! In the name of beauty, this butt! I AM THE GREAT PAPILLION!"

Which I think is a reference to Buso Renkin...but that's just me talking.

I'm very lazy today too.

Not that there's anything wrong about that...


Expect that I felt like my lunch was gone after those cutscenes. But man I'd sign up...though I wish I was Mexican and thin enough to do the Mariachi....Ricardo?
