First Berserk Cosplay?
« on: August 08, 2003, 05:50:20 PM »
I tend to bounce back and forth between apprehension and excitement over cosplay. berserk still seems to be something of a sleeper hit here in the States but even on Japanese sites I've never seen any Berserk cosplay.

And now I have. And I think this guy deserves some kind of award because this is one hell of a job. Enjoy.

* Guts's smirk.
* Guts' smirk again.
* He's even got the boots perfect!
* OMFGosh Dragon Slayer.

Definitely one of the better Berserk cosplays, but, blue armor?  Purple cape?  No wrapped hands?  Still needs work I'm afraid.  The Dragonslayer looks good though.  

I have seen worse.  :-X

 :D , Man thats guts when like veiwed by someone color blind. He has the hair the build and the sword. No ones perfect tho he did a hell of a job with what he had. Im glad some ones out there to showoff Guts prowess worldwide.

At least its not a fat munchkin in pink sporting a pizza pan.  ( Whats the blue crap comeing out from his belt ? )

It looks like he might've gotten them mixed up.  The blade is shaped and colored like the DS, but it has that big ridge in the middle.  And then there's the guard, that's definitely from the Golden Age sword.

The more I look at those pics, the more he reminds of some kind of Sub Zero-type character.  Damn black and blue...

I'm trying not to be too harsh, since I still remember the football-shoulder-pads & black-jeans Guts cosplay.  :P

Wow, details.  I wonder who that creepy old man is with them, though? ^^;


I did some searching (boredom reigns supreme ::) ) and found this posted on the old BSOM message board:

http://www.geocities.co.jp/Playtown-Denei/3707/4-1-beruseruku.jpg

I love the look of the armor and the mechanical arm, just be nice if the guy didn't look so funny with his eye shut.  But there is the ever so rare Skully cosplay too. ;)

Somewhere on this board there is a topic with a ton of Berserk cosplay pics.  It should pop up with a search but if you cant find it most of the pics came from http://images.cosplay.com

Leave it to Olivier.  He was the one who posted that link on BSOM.  ;)  That SK costume looks like it would be kind of uncomfortable, stuffy.  The sacrifices of fandom. ^^;

 :o  :o  :o

I  saved the one with Guts and Skully as "berserk_gattsu-skullknight_bestfuckingcosplayever.jpg" If there were some kind of live action Berserk movie, that's how I imagine the get-up for Skully and Guts would look. The wrist crossbow even looks well-worn and exactly like Guts's. Totally blown away.

As for the stuff I posted, I wasn't too sure about the blue armor either but didn't Guts have a violet or indigo cape early in The Golden Age story arc?

P.S. I want to cosplay as Casca.  :-[ Too bad I can't fit my hair under a short wig anymore and I have no idea what to do for armor. I'd settle for Charlotte but I'll be damned if I could come up with one of her adorable and amazing gowns.

From the fact that he had throwing dagger with him, i guess that is likely so

Looking at the armor, Guts in the cosplay seem to be taken from the lost children arc!

Taken from the same site as that terrific Guts and Skull Knight pair...

Theres also a picture of two people playing Casca and Griffith, both of which are nothing short of a great effort either. Apologies if this has been mentioned before already.
"Good and evil. Evil isn't just malice - murder and rape and massacre. Before everything the Devil is the father of lies - the lies you tell, the truths you don't tell. Everything hidden is theft. Everything reserved from those we love is fraud, and there’s always something, isn't there? Yet, what everyone wants is for evil people to be off somewhere insidiously committing evil deeds and so they can be separated from ordinary men and women and ultimately... destroyed. But the line that separates good and evil cuts through every human heart, and who is willing to destroy a piece of their own heart?"

The only capes I could find were sort of light blue (early on) and red-brownish sort of color (of course, I only looked at the Golden Age manga covers).  I guess it's *sort* of close to purple.  But I think he was going for the Black Swordsman more.  Maybe it's his own version of a "Guts montage."  ;)


And the Skully-Costume is not green...  ;D

Well, we can't be perfect I guess.  I'm not sure most people realize he's green.  ;D

Excellent cosplay.  I just wonder, why do cosplayers always use that really shiny fabric for things that never looked shiny?  Enough to put my eyes out sometimes.  ;D

To show off. The main reason to do a cosplay is to look good and represent your favorite choice of character right ? Well if one chooses to do this.  Why not show off in the process , and grab yourself more attention than any other of the characters out there. Like the ones who chose to dress up like you ?

Hell i just hope they go naked sometimes to represent a good hentai :D

*kicks stuff in a jealous fury at the sight of the Griffith and Casca cosplayers*

That is so fricking awesome.

I wonder if thsoe are the same two that did this extraordinary Neptune and Uranus cosplay? I understand they're kind of cosplay celebrities and have done modeling work for some gaming companies.

The most extraordinary fact is that they're brother and sister (evident in this photo). Talk about the ultimate casting choice for Sailor Uranus: a beautiful boy, which is exactly what Uranus looks like in the anime and manga.  :P

I love seeing these other Berserk cosplays. I'd love to see more, if anyone has more.

P.S. The rest of that particular site is here and I highly recommend checking it out. Isn't cuteness to these kinds of extremes illegal in some countries?  :-*

Well heres four more Berserk fans having a go...

    • Group shot - all four; Judeau, Casca, Griffith and Guts.[/url]
      [url=http://digilander.libero.it/planetberserk/varie/rarita_curiosita/rare22.jpg]
    • Close up - just Casca and Griffith.[/url]
    Note a lack of eye gouging shiny fabrics - the exception that proves the rule maybe?  ;D

    WOW!

    Thats a very awesome cosplayer...

    I cant say which armor is the best ... Guts or and Griffith ??...

    Anyway, all of them are very impressive...

    One of the best Berserk Cosplayer I ever seen... Casca and Judeau are perfect too... Guts looks like the one in Berserk prototype manga...

      I'm not positive, but I'm pretty sure the Guts cosplay in the group is the same as the Guts & Skully one above, except he has an eyepatch.  Excellent pictures!!!
