Costume Information

Time Taken : 2 months

Well, this is it! Kefka was my finals costume for World Cosplay Summit 2013!

We had a difficult time choosing what to do for our finals costumes due to the heat in Nagoya where the finals were held. We went through a ton of options and finally settled on Kefka and Terra, with a huge emphasis on our performance, choosing costumes that would be easy to move in with plenty of detail.

The costume itself was not as hard as it looks but was very time consuming to make. There are lots of details on the costume that are hard to see from reference to reference, and I wanted everything to be there for the finals.
There are 15 different scarves on the costume - each of them unique, with different techniques required - which was fun to try and co-ordinate all together! Planning for this costume took a huge amount of time, possibly even moreso than making the costume itself, but allowed me to fit the proportions to my body better.

Performance is a huge part of WCS, and we wanted something fun and universally understood, while staying very visual. I've never really performed on stage before, and Kefka kind of threw me in the deep end with his quirks - it took a lot of practice to get him 'right'!

A video of our performance is available on YouTube direct from Niconico Douga!

The reception we received for these costumes was amazing. Thank you all so much for your support and feedback!!

Absolutely fantastic and terra-fying (sorry!). You did a brilliant job on both the costume and performance <3
Best Kefka! I hope one day to see this in person (and then run away because this is the perfect level of crazy scary for Mr. Palazzo!)
