|This is Myst’s first completed cosplay!! YAAAAY!!|
Kept this one quiet, didn’t I? xP
I’ve been badgering at Myst to cosplay for aaages, though all of my suggestions for characters were sadly shot-down. Then we went to go see the Final Fantasy Distant Worlds concert in London in November, and I was struck by a brilliant idea: He should cosplay Laguna.
Let’s face it, they’re basically the same person. Loyal, derpy, nice hair, etc. So I presented this idea to him and he didn’t immediately object, so I took that as a yes.
Obviously since he doesn’t normally cosplay, it’d be down to me to organise the costume. So this is my first (albeit slightly self-imposed) commission. Yup yup, going up in the world or something.
Went off what little reference material there is and most of it was based off his appearance in Dissidia 012, since the FF8 images aren’t particularly clear. The hair was sorted from the get-go, even if Laguna's is a bit shorter. Trousers and white tshirt were bought (with black strips added to the shirt by moi), boots were bought (proper army assault boots, too), gun bought and re-painted… and the jacket… Ooh that jacket… Yeah, I made that. From my own blood, sweat and tears. BLOOD, SWEAT AND TEARS, I TELL YOU.
Anyway, this costume is why I made my Moomba gijinka, since he refused to cosplay without me as a partner, and damnit Moombas and Laguna are adorable together! Moomba x Laguna OTP 5eva.
