Tyris Flare, the Amazon by Rasmirin Tyris Flare, the Amazon by Rasmirin
Golden Axe was the first game I ever played for the Sega Genesis, and I originally played it at my babysitter's house on her husband's game system. He always played with me as Ax Battler, and as an impressionable wee girl I loved playing the badass Amazon chick Tyris. Even though it's ancient and corny and lacks glorified graphics, Golden Axe has always held a special place in my heart...it made me a gamer girl before I was even ten years old! So when a friend of mine suggested I put together a Golden Axe cosplay group for Dragon Con '07, I just couldn't refuse.

This costume was pretty easy to make since it was based off a simple swimsuit pattern. The top did take a bit of fussing with, and I did end up nabbing the underwire cups out of an old push-up bra for a base. I even made the boots myself from a pair of $2 navy heels from Goodwill and a yard of red suede. The sword took a bit of work too, but I'm very happy with how the whole thing turned out! I think what I love the most though is being able to use my own hair, and not having to wear a wig. ^_^

Out of all the games I had for the Sega Genesis (okay all 6 of them), Golden Axe was my absolute favorite and most of the time I played as Tyris. I haven't played Golden Axe in years and was feeling a bit nostalgic the other day when I came upon your cosplay picture by accident. And I was like "OMG, it's Tyris!" You are an incredibly beautiful woman and you have pulled off a perfect "live-action" capture of a beautiful character. Should Hollywood ever decide to make live action movie based on Golden Axe, they need to call you for the part of Tyris period. 'Nuff said. I love your pose in this picture, especially how your face is canted upwards. You seem to be looking Death Adder right in the face and thinking, "Okay you diseased maniac, get over here and take your medicine!" Even though the look is simple, it's one of the best video game cosplays I've ever seen. It, and you, are stunningly beautiful.

Actually there is a more modern version of Golden Axe called Golden axe beast rider for xbox and Ps3. Tyris is (ironically) the only character you play as, graphics are amazing though.

I am too a huge fan of Golden Axe (that's how I found you out in a first place!) and especially the game's music! Here's my favorite track... [link] Considering the sound of most Genesis games, I can't stress enough the fact that it's AWESOME :)
And what about this catchy tune of few repeated notes? [link] I think it matches dreamy Tyris here: simple and beautiful :)

Congrats: so damn cute --> classic character, nice cosplay and stunning body. :-D

Thank god you didn't choose the character design used in the last game: it's horrible.
Classic design >>>>>>>>>>>>>> New design.

I liked the other ones in your site too. Keep it working. ;)

If you wanna try a "version 2" of Tyris in the future, you can try a more violent one (example: [link]) because angry amazons can do a lot of mess, hehehe. :-D

Nice work. I remember Golden Axe in the arcades....loved the game. I didn't like it as much as the arcade because it wasn't as colourful, but it wasn't too bad, but at least I have the arcade version on my Wii now. :D

BTW, you make a lovely cosplay character, if you don't mind me saying so. :blush: I'm always amazed at the detail that good cosplay people, both male and female, put into their costumes. Sounds like fun to do, but is something I couldn't afford...I'm more into drawing characters with neat costumes instead. :D

You make a good Tyris! She is my favorite character (very close with Gilius) in Golden Axe since she had the most powerful magic (the fact that it was fire was also a bonus) and her flying kick was unstoppable!

I liked the arcade sequel where she's a centaur better than the original.
