|Oh ho ho! Kain! Another under appreciated FF character =D|
And now completed. This was a lot of fun to wear at Expo, though I have to say, so many people thought I was from Yu-Gi-Oh... If someone could tell me what exactley from Yu-Gi-Oh I looked like, I would appreciated it. It left me in much confusion...! (All those people that said 'Dragoon!' as I walked past. ILU.)
The costume itself was really light weight and not as insanely hot as I thought it would be. Lipstick was a pain in the ass (Kain is such a woman, right? :P) and I need to consider a new harnessing system for the leg armour (apparently elastic & velcro is *not* the best combination in the world ever for thigh armour) but other then that I am very pleased with the outcome!
Many thanks to the lovely Rydias on Saturday and Sunday (3 of you! All with beautiful costumes!) and the wonderful Rosa (you're a star, for both your costume and photoshoot organising skills!).
Also many thanks to Shamasus for realising I couldn't carry my bag. Thank you. <3

And so it begins. (Posted 2nd November 2009)
What have I done? Why did I chose this? Seven months is not enough. I need longer to create this. It must be perfect. PERFECT. I bet it ends up costing an arm and a leg too.
But won't it totally be worth it? Then again... I'm either gonna look good or totally rubbish. I'm thinking the latter! I think a good place to start is black trousers and a black shirt... normal, managable things...
