Fou-Lu
Breath of Fire IV

Cosplayer: M.Kesaiyn

Variant: Yorae Dragon God Emperor - wig 1, sprite

Status: Complete

Condition: Not Set

Ayacon 2011

24th August 2011: Finished and FULLY debuted Finished, debuted properly, and entered into the Ayacon 2011 masquerade.

28th July 2011: 95% finished! What's left?
* Adjustments around the collar area on the jumpsuit.
* Patterns on the jumpsuit.

Just about finished now!

26th July 2011: What is left to do? * Finishing painting/varnishing the cuffs/guards
* Adjusting the collar area on the jumpsuit
* Adding the patterns to the jumpsuit.

19th July 2011: 90% Left to do:
* Finish the wrist/ankle cuffs
* Finish the forearm pattern on the left sleeve
* Bondaweb and seal patterns on to the jumpsuit
* Finish decorating the belt
* Adjust the collar and pockets to suit.

All in all, just a few small fiddley jobs left really.

7th July 2011: About 80% there now! Indeed, Fou-Lu is now at about 80%. I have the belt to finish, the jumpsuit collar to tidy a bit, the green patterns to add on to the jumpsuit (and the red criss-cross on the forearms), aaannd the wrist/ankle cuffs to make. Sounds like a lot to do, but it's getting done rather swiftly.

28th June 2011: Swift progress! Alright, most of Fou-Lu is already done. I need to add the patterns to the jumpsuit, make the thick wrist/ankle cuffs, make the forearms (these will be gauntlets as it'll be easier to do than trying to manipulate the jumpsuit fabric), and following that, just a few touch-ups and he'll be done.

Squee! You're doing this for Aya too? Pictures will definitely be required! I didn't think there'd be so many BoF4 cosplayers at one con XD

M.Kesaiyn avatar

M.Kesaiyn - 14th June 2011
It is intended for Ayacon. :-)
I am doing Beatrix for it too, so I have my work cut out this time!
This costume isn't too difficult (so long as the jumpsuit I bought dyes ok).

I'll probably be taking Fou to London Expo in October too.
I love Fou-Lu in more ways than one, and I relate to him so well.

F...Fou-lu? *__* UNF! I loved the characters in this game so very much, always wanted to have a bash at cosplaying from it. Will have to track you down at Aya for a snapshot~

M.Kesaiyn avatar

M.Kesaiyn - 7th July 2011
The characters are indeed very interesting, and have a lot of depth. I relate to Fou-Lu so much that I had to put him up and cosplay him.

Thanks. ^_^'
I have a stalker!

Thanks! I'm a very recent fan though. I played it through last month and, well, I'm a Fou fan-girl now and I just had to cosplay him.

Seeing all this amazing progress is just making me more and more sad about my inability to do Ryu this year.

M.Kesaiyn avatar

M.Kesaiyn - 18th July 2011

Yeah I was very nervous, but once I was on-stage it faded a bit, but when I went off stage I was shaking so much Sillabub had to take my sword off me. XD

Sillabub avatar

Sillabub - 31st August 2011
I've told you many times but it always bears repeating - you looked wonderful and it was awesome to do the masquerade with you! I'm so proud of you for doing it, you were brilliant (even if I did bugger things up a bit at the start)! Really looking forward to getting more photos and stuff at Expo :D

M.Kesaiyn avatar

M.Kesaiyn - 31st August 2011
You buggering things up a bit at the start actually worked though didn't it!? XD
There were a few photos of Fou looking like "wtf?" and then I aimed my sword as you started to walk. Accidental improvisation!

And thank you very much. I appreciate it. It was awesome doing the masquerade with you as well. ^^'
