Costume Information

My first attempt at armour making.
Although I'm pleased with the end result, the armour was rough and untidy, I still have a lot to learn about armour making.

Oh wow! This is looking amazing! I would ask of you'd like to join us with the rest of the Final Fantasy Round Up. We're sorely lacking VIII presence except for Sunday of course

=D thank you. I just realised, you're on the FF Round-up group on FB, me too :)

:-) Indeed. You don't know how long I've been hoping someone like you would do Kiros. FFVIII may not be my favourite of the franchise, but I always really liked Kiros' character design and that someone appropriate should cosplay him.

I'm looking forward to seeing it finished!

I absolutly loved this! It was so refreshing to see a group Cosplay with Kiros, Ward and Laguna as opposed to the usual Squall n Rinoa groups etc :)

armour fitting (Posted 27th October 2011)

Okay.... I don't know whether to laugh or cry at this
Still have a bit of sanding and the painting to do
oh and attaching the pauldrons is a right pain

Arm Armour (Posted 9th October 2011)

Following Sensei's design plan I have now created armour for both arms. Next up, resin mixing fun

crotch shot XD (Posted 24th September 2011)

I know - it looks like a skirt lol. I do hope to cut down the side panels to a more appropriate shape

Chest Armour (Posted 21st September 2011)

with directions from FusionRose (my cosplay sensei) I have now begun to craft the chest plate (cardboard + resin + fiberglass)

so far it looks like a smexy tank top lolz

Weapon (Posted 9th September 2011)

I'm going for the less complicated cardboard - papermache combination
