fate/stay night cosplay - saber 03

Ok, I’m no expert when it comes to Fate/Stay Night, Fate/Hollow Ataraxia, Fate/Zero or any other prequel, sequel, spin off there is in this merchandise; but I’m pretty sure that’s Saber.

However, can someone please explain to me why her dress is red? Is this her alternate costume in the video game, Fate/Unlimited Codes?

First seen in Winter Comiket 2009. Thanks Shiro!

Fate/Stay Night: Rider

Wednesday, December 24th, 2008

fate/stay night cosplay - rider One of the servants of Fate/Stay Night, Rider is a vigilant servant who is very loyal to her master, Mato Shinji, despite being unable to provide her with mana like the other Masters. Her true identity is Medusa, the Gorgon from greek Mythology, although she does not posses Medusa’s trademark "snake-like" hair. She does, however, have very long hair and blindfolds herself to keep her Mystic Eyes, Cybele, from petrifying anyone within her range of vision.

Luty sent me this cosplay after I said I needed to find other cosplays of other character from the series, Fate/Stay Night. Thanks for sharing!

Fate/Stay Night: Saber 02

fate/stay night cosplay - saber I seem to have the habit of flooding this blog with Saber cosplays… This is technically only the second Saber from Fate/Stay Night, but I had 2 Dark Saber’s from Fate/Hollow Ataraxia already.

I really have to find other cosplayers of the other characters.

Anyhow, Saber is a loyal and powerful warrior who chooses to suppress her emotions in order to focus on her goals. She is actually Arturia Pendragon in her previous life, the female version of King Arthur. She desires to win the Holy Grail War in order to correct her previous mistakes in her life.

Beautiful shot! I love the dress and how this was taken. Given, she should be blond, but she makes a nice Saber. Good job!

Fate/Hollow Ataraxia: Dark Saber 02

Saturday, November 22nd, 2008

fate/hollow ataraxia cosplay - dark saber 02 Once the noble spirit of Arturia Pendragon, Saber’s soul was later corrupted in Fate/Stay Night’s installment, Fate/Hollow Ataraxia. Dark Saber is actually more powerful, but she is slightly less agile.

Sadly, the only way her soul could be cleansed is for her Master to kill her… but you all knew that already, right?

Beautiful cosplay! She makes an excellent rival for Calssara. Which do you like best?

Fate/Hollow Ataraxia: Dark Saber

fate/hollow ataraxia cosplay - dark saber

Consumed by the darkness provided by Avenger (who was thought to be Angara Mainyu at the time), Dark Saber is the servant of Mato Sakura. Her original Master, Emiya Shiro, later had to make the bitter choice of killing Saber in order to save her from her misery; a fate she gladly accepted.

Beautiful costume! I found this on Flickr the other day, and the cosplayer’s name is Calssara there. Most of her photos had descriptions saying the costume is for a German Convention, so maybe she’s German? Either way, she makes a great Saber! Good job!

Fate/Stay Night: Saber a.k.a. Arturia Pendragon

arisa mizuhara in fate/stay night cosplay - saber aka arturia pendragonMy apologies for flooding the blog with Arisa Mizuhara’s cosplays, but this is a rare opportunity to show a really good Fate/Stay Night cosplay of Saber. And, might I add, this is also a good time to post a requested cosplay image.

It’s quite difficult to look for a nice cosplay of this character (who is my very favorite!). I’m not entirely sure why. It may be because of the costume or the hair, but whatever the reason… This cosplay is done very nicely.

Alright, so her eyes aren’t the same color as the original character’s. And the sword can use some work. But really… The cosplayer herself is breath-taking, don’t you think? A really nice camera angle too… No wonder Arisa is a professional cosplay idol.
