Costume Information

Cost : £150
Time Taken : 9 months

This is the first cosplay I made which I made things by scratch. The Cloud bracelets, armour and boots were all done by me, whether it was the papermacheing or the painting. The belt and bead pendant was done by my sister, and the sword was thanks to my wonderful dad. This the third cosplay I did and as you can see, I'm slowly but surely improving in making things. Before I was terrible, never papermached before so was quite chuffed with the results. I might do this cosplay again but I am very happy with the results. For me, I was more successful cosplaying this version of Cloud than Advent Children. One improvement with the help of my sister I'd like to do, is improve the belt and strap and this was not held very well together.

Very nicely done. You're first made cosplay is one to be very proud of and on top of it it's a unique variation (don't think I've seen this version cosplayed before), so double points for that :D

@Manticore: Thankyou, this was the second cosplay I met you in if I remember funnily enough, you were Waaka, last time you were doing a Bleach character. Thankyou!!!
@j_mercuryuk: That's very true, when I finished making this cosplay it was very special because I contributed to making it rather than just buying it. Double points!!?? Your so generous and sweet, thankyou so much!!!
