Description
Red XIII is my first massive, intensive cosplay project. This is the Quadsuit version meaning I walk on all fours, and that it's a 'furry' version of him instead of an anthropomorphic one.

As for walking, I'm on stilts for my arms, and on tip toes for my feet, with the shoes styled so that they look like digitigrade legs. His tail will have lights in it (yeep!), and his mouth sort-of moves. Sight in this suit is restricted, but I am looking out of his eyes.

It's also HOT! *melts*

ETA: August 7th, 2009
Well I suck at updating. Red XIII was a joy to play in, and I'm glad he was recieved so very well. He has been to Amecon and Fuyucon and is now retired, pending a new pair of stilts and paws, and possibly a better tail. I recieved the "People's Choice Award" from Amecon 2007 for him. :D

I remember seeing you in this! Looked awesome. Although a tad uncomfortable, how long did you spend on all fours?
