Soul Calibur's Ivy in the Flesh

One intrepid cosplayer put that incredibly skimpy outfit to the test. Can it really be worn with any modesty?

Despite a solid core fighting engine, Jeff had some pretty specific issues with Soul Calibur IV. Two of them, in fact. And they weren't girded with what you would call good taste. Yes, Ivy has been getting less and less clothed--and less and less modest--with every iteration of Namco Bandai's fighting series. So I thought in light of our review, you'd want to see this cosplayer's attempt to bring the impossible to life. I'll let the pictures speak for themselves.

Pretty good costume. Lacking in the double dragon department a bit though.

Wow.  I guess modesty IS overrated.  Thanks Brad.

Not quite as perky. Also, you need a gallery feature.

At least her boobs apply to the laws of gravity unlike the game's version.

...Surely, this should be the makings of the greatest geek-porn-comedy ever?

She looks very similar to Ivy, is that the SC3 costume?  I believe the SC4 version is more revealing.

:O *stares*

dead on
both look like transvestites with huge tits

O_o

I think it's hilarious how half of these comments are discussing how canon the costume is.

Posted by albedos_shadow

That's definitely the SC3 costume. Much less skimpy.

THOSE HAVE TO BE REAL

I was hoping it was going to be a fat dude with a neck-beard.
Oh well, I suppose I can't complain.

Geeze.....

Ahem.....

Yeah, not bad. Decent figure, if not a little thick. Needs more uh... upper body support though.

Posted by Erocos

Wow, thats some crazy cosplay. She looks just like ivy

Posted by thebrassthief

I would make a constructive comment on this, but I really can't. It would not be taken seriously. Even by me.

Posted by ArbitraryWater

umm... ok. The costume looks accurate but the taste and the judgment of the cosplayer must be questioned. If I liked a game I wouldn't dress up as a hypersexed ugly lady with a sword whip thing and then put pictures of me on the internet. Then again, Cosplayers are not known for their sanity.

The only things that comes to mind are the words of a great man.


I like boobs.  Boobs are awesome.

Posted by Alita_99

It's a pretty good cosplay, but nothing I would ever wear myself.  Of course, it's nearly impossible for any real, non-supermodel woman to pull off the exact proportions of the original video game character, for everyone making those sorts of observations.  They're fantasy women for a reason.  =/

I think some of the best Soulcalibur cosplay I saw were Lillyxandra and Haruka, who did Ivy and Taki respectively.

Good find Brad

Videogame nerds critique looks of female cosplayer. News at 11.

wow. i didnt think i would find this nearly as hot as i do

Posted by dtran1212

honestly...i hit that

Posted by Xenos_19

First time I saw her I was like wow that really good, now the more I see her, i like her more and more, and on forums on (*insert Gaming site here*) people were complaining that her breasts were to Saggy, but really? I guess they dont know what real breasts are like: Droppy, perfect round breats, and enourmous, fairly shaped breats (like Ivy's in SC4) dont exist, so ya...

But any I find her really atractive :D

Posted by Telekenesis

Wow, very nice.

Posted by TheGreatGuero

Pretty rad. She looks good.

Posted by HTTenrai

Forgive the figure of speech, but she's got some big balls to have done that. If she were my girlfriend, I'd marry her for that. ^_^

Posted by JJ

Well, this is interesting.

Posted by elektrixx

She's ugly.

I'm in love.

Posted by lord_canti

cosplayer = FUCKING HOT AS HELL =D=D=D=D=D=P

Posted by sp1der1976

(dribble)

Can I request she does Judy Nails next?

(dribble again)

Posted by F1

Hottest cosplayer ever. If you disagree, send me picture proof!

Posted by FoolInjection

I'd buy that for a dollar... Yeowza !

Posted by ahoodedfigure

That is CRAZY good.  She even got the hair right.  And the facial expression.  I've never been this impressed by cosplay people before.

And the boobage is nice and human :)

Posted by Peter

Everyones totally thinking it...Nice boobs...

Posted by The_A_Drain

Anyone who says she's fugly needs to be smacked upside the head, that is some awesome cosplaying right there.

That said, thats hardly the skimpiest of cosplay outfits, ivy's other costume (the one in all the trailers) any real woman would be literally falling out of, it would be impossible to keep boobs inside that... piece of string.

Posted by Death_Burnout

Wow...just wow, thats pretty damn good!

Posted by Aeterna

I didn't think i'd ever see a good ivy cosplay.

Now I know I was wrong, but damn am I glad I was.

Posted by mankco

she can sit on my sword any time

Posted by Nintendude

I think the second pic is the best one of these. SC4 costume is a bit over the top in the chest department so I bet no one will do that one, heh.

Posted by fox01313

Very nice, I can't remember how I found it earlier on another site but it went back to her flickr site with more cosplay shots of other characters (most of which had more clothing) but for Ivy she did good on the costume.

All sex jokes aside, it's actually a really good cosplay.  Much closer to the earlier iterations of Ivy then the newer ones.

Posted by mister1337

This is probably the best cosplay I have ever seen. Seriously, this chick looks just like Ivy not some 350 lbs version of her like most cosplays are.
