Soulcalibur IV Cosplay: Ivy Valentine (Belle Chere) Cosplay 01 OCT 2012

Probably the most under dressed and overly endowed woman in fighting games today, it is no wonder that Soulcalibur’s Ivy Valentine always seems to sit around the top of almost all Sexiest Game Character lists ever released!

For this shoot American cosplayer Belle Chere gets more than a little daring – but pulls off a fantastic Ivy cosplay in the process!

Isabella Valentine, commonly called Ivy, is a fictional character in the Soul series of video games. Created by Namco’s Project Soul division, she first appeared in the original Soulcalibur and its subsequent sequels, later appearing in various merchandise related to the series. She was voiced in Japanese by Yumi Toma until replaced by Kanako Tōoo starting with Soulcalibur Legends; in English, she was voiced by Renee Hewitt in Soulcalibur II and Lani Minella for the remainder of the series.

The illegitimate daughter of undead pirate Cervantes de Leon, Ivy was raised by a noble family until her father became obsessed with the cursed sword, Soul Edge, leading to his death and later her mother’s. Desiring to destroy the sword, she creates a segmented, animated blade, only to become Soul Edge’s pawn and learn that it intends to use her as its next host. After an attack by Cervantes results in the loss of her soul, Ivy uses a temporary artificial one to keep herself alive, and continues after the blade.
