Costume Information

Cost : £40

It's Vivi!

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:

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.
Overall, I think my Vivi is Ok, but I'm not too happy with how the mask turned out. If I start wearing this more often, then I'm gonna take serious consideration into making a better mask.

5 Days till J-Con (Posted 10th September 2012)

So basically I was keeping this cosplay under wraps for a few reasons:
1- Didn't want to know what everone thought of it until it was too late to change it. People influence me too easily, and if someone didn't like the idea I would've changed it probably, but I wanted to do this.
2- Groups. I don't mind being part of an FF group one day, but I wanted J-Con to be about me and Adam (my little brother) cosplaying together at his first con. He's a Tonberry.
3- Suggestions. It annoys me when I have something perfect in my mind and people try to say 'you should do this' and 'you should do that' then get really dissapointed when I don't do it. If I need help, I'l ask.
4- It's a nice surprise on the day! (well not anymore now I've told but...)

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!!
