Costume Information

Cost : £195
Time Taken : Not long!

Basically, some people asked me to do this. After my Angeal Hewley audition for World VII, some of the people who saw it thought I'd make a good Cid. I looked into it and...I realised I always had Cid on my team, he saves people's asses in VII, AC and why not?

Where else can I swear up a storm, cosplay a cool character, wear a comfortable costume and still feel good about it?

I'm actually quite psyched!

EDIT: It's finished now, I'll try and get some pictures up soon!

Heh, I agree with that! But he gets a fair bit of time in Dirge so it wasn't too bad!

I don't have the wig anymore though :-(

Cid Progress (Posted 25th January 2009)

Shirt and trousers sorted! Goggles on the way, boots on the way, wig on the way. Dunno what I'm doing about his jacket and the spear is underway soon ^_^ Coming along fast and it makes me happy!

This was a surprise! (Posted 21st January 2009)

I've never had a costume suggested by others before...and when it was, I quite liked it LOL

At any rate, the same day I agreed, I bought the shirt and trousers without a problem. I've got the dowel left over to start the spear so this should in theory work quite well. We'll see how that goes LMAO
