So I'm not really big on Final Fantasy. About this time last year, the only FF game I'd played was 7. Although this is still my favorite one, I have now made good progress in both 9 and 10 (not finished, no spoilers).
I kinda loved Vivi right from the start. He's a sweet kid, and has an emotional back story which I can't help but feel sorry for him.
He is now probably my 2nd favorite FF character now, losing to Sephiroth. And seeing as I don't want to cosplay him (I would disgrace him), I opted for Vivi.
Me and my little brother were at J-con 2012! (He was a Tonberry)
Due to the very positive feedback I've received for this one, I'm thinking Vivi will be making guest appearances at conventions in the future!
Look out at:
-Gemucon 2013 (Sunday party)
Tomorrow! (Posted 14th September 2012)
So both costumes are done (yay!), and I have to say, big relief. I can have this evening to myself not having to worry about last minute preperations.
5 Days till J-Con (Posted 10th September 2012)
So basically I was keeping this cosplay under wraps for a few reasons:
So anyway... So far the coat is finished bar the fastening, the trousers are finished bar elasticating the waist and getting a red belt. I have brown ankle boots that will work well, and I have a black roll neck top to wear under the coat. All I need to do is the hat, mask and finish the staff. Sounds easy in 5 days right? Well, I have to make a Tonberry outfit on the side too. Adma's only 9, he can't do it. No one else will help him, so it's down to me.
But I'll do it! I can do it!!
