Hades 2 Collaborative Project

We are excited to share our latest collaboration, Melinoe from Hades 2. Our team worked together with IndigoJinjo and her sewing patterns, Thomas from Magic Missile Studios' set design and photography, and our own illustris_cosplay to bring this character to life. The collaboration allowed us to capture all the iconic elements of Melinoe's design, including her dagger and sickle weaponry, and IndigoJinjo's pattern work brought the costume to life. Stay tuned for more updates and collaborations from our team!
