Dante Cosplay - Portrait by Abessinier Dante Cosplay - Portrait by Abessinier
ARE YOU EXCITED YET???
NOOOO BOOOO!!! FUCK OFF!!!

Yeah, I'm talking about the 'new' Devil May Cry.
Seriously, what the fuck?!?!
Guess I'll make a journal about it soon, to not take up all the comment-space.

But I thought, Devil May Cry Fans were in dire need for some good oldfashioned white-haired Dante these days, so I decided to post this pic!

It was taken at Animagic, by :icondes-henkers-braut: and I luuurv it!
Only hadn't posted it yet, cause I didn't want 20k to be hit before I had finished my tutorial.
What does this mean?

Expect the worst.
I'll be more active again :la:

More Dante-Cosplay for you:

Sure I did.
I don't know which example you used here but in the game arts I used as a reference, it is the same as on my guns.

Oh well, mine is from the Novel.
Is the carving in Dante's guns in the game as well? I haven't noticed them yet..

Good physical condition, great outfit, good shoots, look and great details. Great cosplayer.
But my only tip about this one is about your hands, you needed to grab so tight your weapon because in this one they look so delicate.
Im not trying to dumb, its just my opinion.

Ah, you're really right about my hand. I've always found it looking a littlebit off, and now I know what's the main cause for this (next to having dem spidery fingers).
Thanks!

I really don't know what to think of the new DmC, but I don't like the idea of a 'new' Dante >_< Wtf. There's absolutely nothing wrong with the old Dante! D:
On the other hand, I'm once again in love with your Dante cosplay. You do him so well! :heart:

Yeah... basically Ninja Theory seems to fish in other waters if they think they'd have to change a character that's loved by most people...

Aww thank you so very much :heart:

I'm kind of clinging to the hope that they're just trying to trick us and that there's some dimentional warp or something and that the real Dante will somehow be included...But urgh, what were they thinking? Dx
There's a difference between revamping a series and removing the main character Dx

This is what I've also thought about, because, c'mon, this is maybe the best fusion of guerilla an viral marketing I've seen in my entire life!
The vid is spreading over the whole world like no flu probably could and even yanking people who were only interested in DMC years ago, out of their 'sleep'.

>>There's a difference between revamping a series and removing the main character Dx

This sumns it up just lovingly!

I thought about it probably being Dante's alter ego in another dimension or something like in Assassin's Creed... as somebody said, psychological games are trending.

carola-chan Featured By Owner Sep 23, 2010
Yeah, they're definitely drawing attention to it - and curiosity as well.
Swine Flu < DmC ^^;

Yeah, something like that perhaps.. I haven't played Assassin's creed much, though I sat through the first game, but that could be it. They see that it's working for someone else, and they want to try it as well.
But it just seems so unnecessary!

:iconabessinier:
Abessinier Featured By Owner Sep 24, 2010  Hobbyist Artisan Crafter
Totally right about the unnecessary part...
From the links ~DarkFujin posted, they said in an interview, that they wanted to make DmC less cartoony.
But actually the unrealness and the 'too much' was what made Dante awesome.
C'mon, a guy who fights demons with a guitar or a motorcycle is so incredibly exaggerated that he can make you laugh at him and find it cool at the same time.
And that's what I liked about Dante.
He doesn't take himself too seriously- his ego is too big for that. Safe for DMC2 of course, where this attitude lacked, what is mainly what made the game a failure.

Anyways, you have to learn to get this attitude- a thick skin has to grow in many years, so I'd understand it if it's the younger Dante.
For me, their campaign worked: I'm very curious about it!

Yeah, I saw a discussion like that on GameTrailers as well; they're talking about wanting to make it more realistic, but hello, DMC has never been realistic. Games shouldn't have to be.
I think that almost as much as Dante's kick ass attitude, it's the feeling the game gives off that makes it so good (of course the gamplay and all is amazing too). And who doesn't like guns that never run out of ammo? C'mon!

Yeah, if this is a younger Dante then it can definitely get interesting. It had to grow from somwhere.
I think it looks like a good game, but I don't like changes, and it's very different, so obviously it's hard to grasp.
I'm confused about how much more futuristic it looks though, if it's supposed to be a predecessor.

But yeah, I'm definitely curious!

Abessinier Featured By Owner Sep 28, 2010  Hobbyist Artisan Crafter
Oh yeah, THIS.
I hope we won't have to reload in DmC hahaha.

I feel the same confusion about the futuristic scenario..
It's probably some sorta dystopia.
Anarchic punk-kid!Dante having to deal with an authoritary system?
Oh well, could be interesting, but I hope they don't fuck up.

Me too, me too :D

If anything, I am more shocked that capcom is redoing it so quickly. I suppose they felt since all the previous artisans who worked on the last one essentially visually recast Dante as a new character (cough Nero cough), new blood artistically was needed. But why go all the way and reinvent the character that everybody knows? It's like they reimagined MegaMan. And that's what I hate about it.

Abessinier Featured By Owner Sep 22, 2010  Hobbyist Artisan Crafter
This. so. much.

I just don't understand why they would see the need to reinvent Dante.
Sure everything nowaday must make progress and change an normally change is something I'm pretty much up to, but making a character that lacks nearly all relevant traits of the previous one just doesn't make too much sense to me.

Basically we have to see what will happen, but I don't like the idea of the reboot, although the 'New Dante' is not actually hated by me anymore.
Dunno. He looks so beaten up that I'd feel bad about it lol

Have you seen the trailer? They have a constant "What is your name?" being said by a very robotic voice, just like in the new Star Trek movie. My mind was already reeling with the new design without me thinking this was "Devil May Trek"

I love you! xD I thought the same when I saw the trailer and pretty much did a WTF face , only to play it out with good ol fashioned Devil May Cry 1 OST, and proceeded to cuss and fuss about the emo twit who only thinks he's Dante. xD Long live the true Dante!

Abessinier Featured By Owner Sep 21, 2010  Hobbyist Artisan Crafter
Haha thanks!
God I raged so hard, I was about to throw stuff around and shit!
Now I sorta arranged with my own theory about that kid probably being Dante's past self (aka ugly duckling), although I read that this is some AU the game's taking place in (then how is it related to the original DMC?? WTF???).

Yay for the Dante we know!
Reply
:iconsirimutt:
SiriMutt Featured By Owner Sep 21, 2010
I was actually hoping that the kid only thinks he's Dante by some form of possession, or mental case. Which triggered when I realized he was in a psychiatric ward. But yeah, I really hope this nonsense is cleared up soon. I unfortunately couldn't contain myself, and ended up throwing a lot of stuff. <.<;;;;

But you are very welcome ! xD
