Description
After seeing Montyoum's Femme Squall design me and my best friend decided we wanted to do some Femme characters. Originally I wanted to do Sephiroth but since she was going to be Squall we came to the conclusion that Cloud would be a better pair up.

I'm using his Advent Children outfit as a base and making it feminine. I'm not really a fan of Crossplaying so this is probably the closest I'd get to it.

This is my own design so please do not steal!!

**15/10/10**
- Due to the lackage of money I can't wear this for the MCM Expo (Oct 2010) but I'll still be working on it over the next few months.

**06/12/10**
- Not being worked on for a while so going back to planned =]

**08/01/11**
- Hopefully going to be finished by May Expo for the Saturday. So moving back to progress so I remember to work on it haha XD

**30/03/11**
- Got a job now so this should be a go, Silveradestinova gave me a Cloud jumper she bought ages ago that she no longer needed. I might edit the sleeve before atm it's made of that cheap halloween cape plastic stuff, So when I buy leather for the skirt bit I'll make a sleeve. I have to find a way to make the armour. I've decided not to bother with a buster sword as I'm too lazy to carry it around. I might buy one but only for pictures at home. I've got a commisioner working on the wig for me :D so I'm excited to see that! I'm trying to get my May cosplays finished by my birthday (16/05) so I can just chillout for a couple of weeks =]

Though you look great in the corset, I actually like the jumper better; it's more Cloud and with the Zip down it was fem. enough, especially with the shorts to balance it all out. But as a whole this was funky!! (erm, the very good kind of funky that is)
Gotta say, I envy your wig styling skills, the wig looks fab. and cute. :D Wish I was as good as you with wigs.

Thanks for the nice compliments but the wig was actually done by xblackravenx :D she does wig commisions and had I even tried to give it a go I would have failed completely! xD

Journal

Completed (Posted 26th May 2011)

I think the best things the wig XD everything else i'm not too sure about but at least it's finsihed C: I dont have the armour on here coz i'm collecting it tomorrow from SilveraDestinova =D but at least I dont have to worry anymore (and i'll also be wearing tights and hunting for a better belt - I made the belt from the leather i had and it's rubbiiiiish)

Wig Arrived (Posted 10th May 2011)

I got my wig today! xblackravenx did an AMAZING job! I'm so happy with it! I feel so edgy wearing it!! I loooooooooove!!!

Update 2 (Posted 30th April 2011)

Okay! So shorts have arrived but I need to try them on. Belt and buckle have arrived as well as the leather so I can make my side skirt :D My wig is 99% complete! And hopefully I'll be getting it in the next couple of weeks! Instead of risking having it posted it'll be a collection job xD Silverdestinova will hopefully be sending me the shoulder armour by recorded post so it wont get lost like my Freya ears >.< Then it would be a case of just making sure everything is up to scratch and ready to go :D yay!...gotta find my gloves too..

Wig IV (Posted 24th April 2011)

xblackravenx has started adding the spikes to the wig and as you can see it's taking shape :D! And still looking thick and awesome! She really knows what she's doing!

Wig III (Posted 23rd April 2011)

So xblackravenx has taken the wefts from the second wig and added them to the 1st one. OMGGG I think it looks so thick and shiny and smooth and ahhh! I can't wait to see the shape progress. She'll be working on that tomorrow and will take more photos for me :D! She's so amazingly awesome!

Update (Posted 21st April 2011)

Okay the situation at hand. The wig is being worked on :D hooray! I've got a top I just need to upload piccies of it. I need to see a picture of some armour to see if I like it - if not I'll try and make some..FML. I'm bidding on some shorts that I think would look good and I've decided to wear knee high socks and these high heel boot things I have. But if they don't look right I'll wear my Quistis boots (as seen in picture. I've decided not to have a sword because it's effort carrying it around. But when I'm there if I want one I'll get one from the weapon stand :D

Wig II (Posted 6th April 2011)

The wig arrived at the commisioners but she said to get the fullness of the spikes she'll need more wefts so she's asked me to send her money for another wig and because she likes the concept she wont charge me for the labour =] Her name is Chloe Phantomhive/xblackravenx and so far so good :D I can't wait to see some progress of the wig! :D

Wig (Posted 22nd March 2011)

I've asked a wig comisioner to style the wig for me so it's long but looks like Clouds spikes etc. She's ordered the base wig today and is awesome at wigs so will let me know the progress as she goes along :B

Boots (Posted 24th January 2011)

I contacted the seller of these boots asking if they'd fit my calves as they're about 17-18" and the woman said they would as she was the same. I'm hoping when they arrive they'll fit if not I'll sell them on eBay and buy another pair =] If they do fit I'll also be wearing these for my Quistis Trepe
