Cosplay Wednesday – SoulCalibur’s Ivy Valentine

 Cosplay Wednesday - SoulCalibur's Ivy Valentine

Namco Bandai’s SoulCalibur series of fighting games has always been full of fanservice. Not only are there enough dream cameos to please any fanboy, there is little to no clothing on the female fighters. In honor of the release of SoulCalibur II HD Online, we take a look at a cosplay of series stalwart Ivy Valentine.

Italian cosplayer Giulia Presti has always had an eye for SoulCalibur’s Ivy Valentine, keeping an eye on this character through each and every iteration. Using a Python Purple PVC Stretch material with leather, stretch lace, lycra, and faux gold, Giulia Presti has captured every last detail of Ivy Valentine’s iteration in both SoulCalibur IV. Special thanks should go to photographers Sandro Sebastiani, Francesco Ambuchi, and Paolo Cellammare, who took some fine pictures of Giulia Presti both on-stage and off.

Unfortunately, Guilia Presti’s sword/whip “Extendable Valentine” has finally kicked the bucket after seven years of dutiful service — may it rest in peace.
