Description
It seemed to me no one cosplayed Kefka at expo. I'd yet to find a Kefka... so I was inspired. Coupled with the release of Dissidia, I thought I'd go full out for the crazy clown.

Being in character all weekend sure was fun :P There's some flaws with this costume and many bits that annoy me, but I think I shall be editing it and improving it for the future. The use of wire in the scarves is probably the most problematic part and the entire harness for that needs to be redone...

The most unfortunate part is the amount of layering that has to be done to achieve Kefka's level of weirdness. Each sleeve is... 3 different parts (not including the glove on the right hand) and the elastic kinda makes your arms go numb after a while. :D

But who cares. This was the most fun I've ever had in cosplay. Ever. Ever, ever, ever.

Watch out for this Kefka at October 2010 @ London Expo!

>>>>RETIRED COSTUME. It fell to bits on a rewear DDDD: <<<<
