Information

This is my first attempt at making my own costume and also my first attempt at making a sword.Overall I am fairly pleased with the result and it was an interesting and fun learning experience.
I chose it because I thought the character was cool and looked good.The hardest part was getting into decent shape,it required months of lifting weights regularly and eating a rigid low fat diet.
I learnt several things from this,the most important being wrap your foam sword base in gaffer tape before you apply the fibreglass and resin,otherwise it will eat into the foam like acid lol.Luckily I saved it before too much damage was done :D

You need some character reference pics on this one by the way. Awesome progress though!

Looking great. Can't wait to see the finished outfit and sword.

Even more great progress! You said the pins you are using are butterfly pins? You sure they're not paper fasteners?

NIce work. Looks really good!

Looking GOOD Leumas! Just a thought, but you could get some fake tan to sweeten the deal if you wanted to. Are you going to get the tattoo drawn on with body paint or henna at all?

leumas posted on 19 September, 2009 - 07:29
Yeah I have bought a big bottle of fake tan and black face paint for the tattoo,just saving it for nearer the time really.I finished the belt a while ago but haven't taken a picture yet,and I'll start growing a beard a couple of weeks prior to expo,it doesn't take long to grow really

Love your Jecht! I aint seen one before, and it's awesome. Cant wait to see you.

Pez posted on 28 October, 2009 - 11:06
JECHT!!! Seeing you at Expo totally made my day! :D

Lisu-chan posted on 4 November, 2009 - 10:00
Same as Pez.... Jecht is a character you don't often see! ^_^ Very good job!

leumas posted on 4 November, 2009 - 12:57
Aww thanks,the character seemed to go down well,a lot of people were surprised and pleased to see me.It's nice being someone that you don't often see and you're the only one of.I wonder why he's not done more.Did I meet you at Expo?

Lisu-chan posted on 4 November, 2009 - 18:37
Not really~! You just zoomed past me, and my friends had to suffer already when I spotted a Kefka! (Just a very big fan of that sadistic clown, can't really help it!) I wanted to take a photo with\of you, but my friends were walking the other direction.. didn't want to lose them! Yes cosplaying a character less known pays of a lot, you might nog get recognized by everyone, but the ones that do, ... they make it worthwhile! ^_^

leumas posted on 4 November, 2009 - 21:46
ah well,if you're ever in my area we can always get a few photos together

leumas posted on 3 February, 2010 - 21:49
Yeah you probably did,I didn't noticed any Rinoa's apart from one on Sunday so I must have missed you,I was probably drunk with Shoopuf bloodlust

DuskatNight posted on 4 February, 2010 - 19:10
I think I probably did, you were like the only Jecht there XD. Aww that's a shame really. Haha Shoopuf Bloodlust is always good 8D

leumas posted on 5 February, 2010 - 12:36
Damn Shoopufs!Yeah no-one ever does Jecht.

DuskatNight posted on 5 February, 2010 - 19:41
Yus damn the Shoopufs. But still Shoopufs are fun to ride on xD. I know it sucks.

leumas posted on 5 February, 2010 - 23:30

DuskatNight posted on 6 February, 2010 - 13:50

YOU KNOW JECHT IS COOLER THAN CLOUD! Jecht would have saved aeris in time, you know why? Cause he is a reeeeal man =D!

leumas posted on 11 March, 2010 - 21:34
Exactly! Jecht would have snapped Sephiroth's neck like a twig,like a twig I tell you!

leumas posted on 13 March, 2010 - 15:15
The difference in skin tone between you and I is pretty amusing

Zelda posted on 13 March, 2010 - 15:18
Well as you know, i have always been pale skinned, and i always will be XD

leumas posted on 13 March, 2010 - 15:23
not if you slap on loads of fake tan like me :D

Anggul posted on 13 March, 2010 - 16:58
That was a seriously awesome Jecht, and I loved the sword.

leumas posted on 13 March, 2010 - 17:06
Thanks man,and if I remember correctly your sword was pretty damn awesome too

Anggul posted on 13 March, 2010 - 22:05
Thank you, it's my precious 6ft smashy Buster of solid wood =D

leumas posted on 13 March, 2010 - 22:17
Lol Cloud's sword IS ridiculously huge.Do you think he is compensating for something?

Sephirayne posted on 29 March, 2010 - 22:26
Awesome Jecht. Love the sword and the armour.

Ashika posted on 29 March, 2010 - 22:40

I love your Jecht cosplay - and you were so brave to wear it even though it was so cold! It was also awesome to chat to you - enjoy your non-sword weapon :P and I'll catch up with you at other events :)

leumas posted on 31 March, 2010 - 21:10
aww thanks,you were one of the people I enjoyed hanging round with and chatting to most too.I am either brave or foolish,not sure which one yet but it's worth it to get to play Jecht cos he's an awesome character
