|I don't understand why Final Fantasy VIII is so underrated, it's one of the finest games in the series!|
When first introduced, Edea is portrayed as a cruel, sadistic woman.
You meet her properly in Deling City, where Squall and his party are tasked with assassinating her. The attempt fails, and Edea responds with a vicious attack. You encounter her again later on, and upon defeating her in battle, you discover that she was in fact possessed by Ultimecia, a malevolent sorceress from the future.
Edea is actually a gentle, loving matron who cared for children at her orphanage.
I love this woman, she's elegant, mysterious and badass!

I would actually pay someone to carve this right now.
This has got to be the most frustrating/boring part of this cosplay.
Horns (Posted 17th March 2014)
I'm trying to remember to take photos throughout this time!
So the core is made from tightly compacted foil which I shaped into the horns, which I then mod rocced for rigidity, and then lightly coated in paperclay so that I can sand it smooth (applying Homestuck cosplay knowledge here).
The reason I did so rather than just molding some clay is because I need it to be as light as it can be, considering it's going to be on my head all weekend, but it also needs to be rigid and smooth.

Took a mold of my head using Kobracast (brilliant stuff, thank you Coscraft!).
I then did the same thing I did with the horns, applying mod roc and paperclay (though I haven't got round to the clay yet..)
