Costume Information

Cost : ??
Time Taken : 3 weeks

I really wanted to do a Final Fantasy XIII cosplay from the moment i knew it was coming out, but everyone seemed to have had the same idea and before the game was even released in Japan, it seemed everyone was cosplaying as Lightning. Then when Vanille was shown on a trailer i knew i had to have a go.

The costume was a pain to do, mostly because her artwork images are at crazy angles and as i've already said, the game hadn't been released so that was all i had to go on. There are over 1000 beads on the costume which made it incredibly delicate and i spent the whole day wondering if they'd all fall off at some point.

However as it happens, they all stayed together and it became one of my most fun cosplays to wear ^_^ Vanille's accent annoyed the hgeck out of me in the game, but you can't deny that the girl has fun with her clothes lol.
