Castlevania is one of the greatest game series released. The Belmonts and many other heroic figures are forever locked in an unending battle against the dark lord himself, Dracula. Having some item knock offs from the series would be wonderful to have. :3 here are some examples, and more to come as I add along the way. Feel free to add your own photo examples. ^ ^
The vampire killer.
The vampire killer. Well known as the infamous whip used by All Belmonts and a few other select to fight their enemies and destroy Dracula himself. Even though we do have the beautifully done fire and ice whips, I feel that we should be able to have a normal leather whip. Those others that are from the Nightmare, Lightening Lash, and Accessories de Cirque aren't exactly the best of whips made for our avis. Whip should come in either black or brown.
Now what's a good castlevania knock off without a pot roast that came from a wall or a whole chicken from a lit candle? I like how gaia does have a whole chicken item, and fish. But that my friends, isn't quite enough. Here are a few I had in mind, and would love if they indeed come in 8-bit like form for the shits and giggles.
Sub-weapons/ Items for avi hands or side at the waistline
A lot of Castlevania games have sub-weapons as secondary attacks or in some cases a third means of attack. These would be great to have on our avi's or at least clasped to the side of the waistline.
The clothing design is as someone once told me, amazing. I couldn't agree more. The unique styles are well done, and I honestly wouldn't mind seeing them on gaia avis. Here are some examples below for both for men and women.
Example 1 : Should come in different colors.
Example 2 : Should come in different colors.
Example 3 : Should come in different colors.
Example 4 : Cornell's normal clothing
Example 5 : Cornell's prison clothes
Example 6 : Should come in different colors.
Example 7 :
Example 8 :
Example 9 : Should come in different colors.
Example 10 : Should come in different colors.
Example 11 : Should come in different colors.
Example 12 : Should come in different colors.
Example 13 : Should come in different colors.
Example 14 : Should come in different colors.
Example 15 : Should come in different colors.
Example 16 : Should come in different colors.
Example 17 : Should come in different colors.
Example 18 : Should come in different colors.
Example 19 : Should come in different colors.
Example 20 : Should come in different colors.
I would love some beautiful Castlevania style eyes and hair. And pretty dresses.
The only problem I have with this is that, unless you blatantly copied the items (which has lawsuit written all over it without some kind of colossal promotion for precisely nothing), we already have plenty of items to easily mimic just about anything out of Castlevania, and this is coming from a huge Castlevania fan.
One of the first two whips was a Flame Whip, very reminiscent of classic CV. We have about five different whips now, maybe even six. We have weapons galore, a plethora of regal and formal wear, and there are all sorts of accessories and God knows how many demonic and vampiric items available.
I like the concept to a degree, and perhaps an update of items distinctly designed -after- Castlevania's style may be approved of... but actual Castlevania ones? I just do not see it being practical for Gaia, especially since Castlevania is a bit of a forgotten series these days, at least for the most part. It is nothing like it was.
That's why I said knock off items on the above before showing the pictures. 3nodding I've also stated on the above, that that the fire whip and ice whip do serve as perfect items for a Castlevania cosplay, but that the other whips don't exactly cut it. =/ they're too small at both the handle base and the whip length itself. It's lazy simple wavy pencil lines when there can be so much more potential.
hm as many ripped off items as they're are, Castlevania stuff would be pretty neat D: but just think of the repeated cosplays. blerh.
*hugs Alucard* >>; they need to make better looking vampire skins though. :/ and colored too!
