Costume Information

Cost : 60
Time Taken : 2 Weeks.

Squall matches my personality perfectly in some areas and I believe in terms of video game characters he is most similar to me.
Unfortunately I never got round to doing a gunblade as time constraints didn't allow it and with this being my first cosplay I didn't want to rush it. So hopefully I shall be doing an Amano/Dissidia Alt costume Steely Blade with Lionheart sword in October for the MCM expo in London.
All was modded or made by me and my partner.
Buckle and belt studs were all made using sculpture clay, and then painted with a base grey. They were then varnished and gilded with aluminium to allow for a metallic finish.
Had great fun for my first cosplay although the heat was an absolute pain. Curse you leather!
