Costume Information

Time Taken : Don't go there

UPDATE: This has had a few repairs/updates/alterations as of 17/10/11 :3

Boots. OH GOD THE BOOTS. Hell. Remind me never to work with craft foam and shoes again. This was my first attempt at shoes and craft foam armour (you can't *really* count Tifa's little elbow and shoe thingy, can you now?!), and I believe it's rather obvious! However, I'm proud that I managed to scrape something together alright! I'm not sure how long they'll last though.
EDIT: As of now they have been fixed, repainted and the black panel of craft foam removed. In it's place it has been painted and now there is MUCH more flexibilty and manvoureability- They look so much better!

Trousers: If they didn't have a gaping hole in the back for the tail I'd wear them normally. I really do love them.

Tail: Again. Much love.

Belts: A lot more fun than I thought. EDIT: Fixed and improved, weird snitch/Alexander thing redone and he now has a sheath!!!!

Vest: Eh. Had help from a lovely lady that works with my mother for this. My health was getting BAD and time was running out. Much love Jill! Thank you!

Waistcoat: Again. Help from mother. That pleather is a betch. EDIT: Was going to redo the pleather in a more accurate colour, but I've painted it with acrylic instead.

Crevat and...whatever the hell that necklace thing is: Loved it. EDIT: Redone the ornament and added lace to the creavt.

Earring: Ditto necklace/crevat.

Armband: Doi. That ain't hard. 30 seconds.

Cuffs: LOL. These took waaay longer than they should have. Didn't measure properly and ended up unpicking the poppers and resewing them about 5 times. Sorry Ma. xD

Gloves: Loved making them. Really. Loved. Loved. EDIT: Repainted.

Swords: MY BABIES. Okay they look pretty naff but GOSH I had fun making them! My twins Roxanne and Jessica they live! THEY LIVE! EDIT: Fixed and repainted.

I do believe I saw this cosplay from a distance! It looked epic (I also pointed it out to my friend, who I think then ran over to you to tell you how epic it was!) and you should be very proud of it :D
