Kongou WIP Costumes` by mikewinn Kongou WIP Costumes` by mikewinn
On the heels of the Riot one we have the same efforts with Kongou. Overall our goals are to push the designs and bring the characters a little further into the modern fantasy aesthetic inspired by games like Blazblue and Guilty Gear (especially the Xrd update.) while still keeping our western influence intact. Kongou has long eluded me in terms of finding an outfit that really fits him and some of that is simply due to the evolution of his character profile and arc in the development of the world and story. Now that we're in a place of some solidity we need to really nail his final iconic look. Here we've tried a bunch of variations - some based on older versions and some with new ideas. It's let me pinpoint the ones and ideas I -don't- want for sure while also moving towards ideas I do. Unlike Riot, he's not finished, and we need to move on to others but I thought I'd share. Like Riot I started with him in his skivvies - which resulted in a hilarious image. Hello ladies! lol - but I think for our purposes here there's no need for that and costume alone is fine. :)

 Judging by what time he is in and where it all takes place I think that the body of the 3rd one with the clothes on the top row with the chest and facial hair and scars of the 1st on top row would work considering he's so big no one took the time to make him  proper clothes and he probably wouldnt take the time to shave. Cool ideas though!

I like the top right one is the way I kinda see him.

Though I like the chest fuzz on top left too!

Really cool versions, Mike, but I think I lean toward a mix n match. Like the bottom half of the 1st one on the second row. Dig the gloves on the first one top row. Like the facial hair on the 4th one top row and maybe the top-knotted dreads you used on him originally. And maybe skip chest hair for a rad tat of some kind - dragon, big cat, wolf, bear, some symbol, etc. Think about it. I wouldn't steer you Wrongou! :omg:
