The Soulcalibur series, one of the best weapons-based fighting game franchises ever released and today’s Cosplay Sundae features an absolutely stunning recreation of two of the game’s prime characters, virtuous Grecian warrior Sophitia Alexandra and sinister exiled French Nobleman, Raphael Sorel. Both cosplayers have put immense time and detail into each of their respective costumes and pictures thus speak for themselves. Absolutely stunning.
For those of you not familiar with the characters, Raphael was a French nobleman exiled from his town of Rouen after committing a grievance against his family. Escaping his pursuers thanks to the help from a village girl named Amy, he slowly pieces together the mystery of the Soul Edge and embarks upon a quest to claim the evil sword for its power that will enable a better life for Amy who he has now befriended.
Sophitia on the other hand comes into contact with the Olympian god of fire and forge, Hephaestus, who tells her of the evil blade and charges her with its recovery or destruction lest it sow injustice and misery across the world. A valiant warrior and armed with the Omega Blade, Sophitia will stop at nothing to destroy the cursed Soul Edge.
