Mini Group


Holster Ref


Sword ref


Costume Information

Cost : £24.85

Now to be worn for a possible FFXIII Group at Ayacon 2011.

In progress as i ordered the cosplay. I was wondering for ages whether to make the cosplay or buy it but i decided i was going to buy it as i'm too busy at the moment with wedding plans to be making every single one of my cosplays. All the rest of my ayacon cosplays (apart from SeeD Quistis) will be made by me.

I have now decided to make the weapon in gun form rather than sword form so i can put it in the holster (which i will also have to make) x.

No longer wearing for Ayacon as i'm really not very happy with the cosplay >.< Will bring out when i'm happy with her x.

To-Do List

Spike WigLowComplete


Mess up with the commissioner. (Posted 23rd July 2011)

Well big mess up with the people i got my lightning from, My fiancee and I bought our lightning and snow together at the same time from the same people on the same account and they turned up together. Well my lightning is too big for me and his snow is too small for him - yep you guessed they swapped around the measurements so his snow is my size and my lightning is his size =/
We're contacted the people to try and get them made in our sizes to arrive before Ayacon. Fingers crossed they arrive in time.

Wig Arrived (Posted 15th October 2010)

My wig arrived this morning, which was pretty suprising lol. I bought the wig from the same ebay store i bought the Aerith wig from. I bought the Aerith wig 6 days before the lightning wig yet the lightning wig turns up first xD
Oh well =D I love the wig, it's a perfect colour and the styling was done great ^_^
