Fran - Final Fantasy XII

Status :Complete
Worn At :London MCM Expo May 2010


Reference Collage

MCM Exp-Masquerade II

MCM Expo-Masquerade

MCM Expo May 2010




This will be one of my biggest cosplay challenges yet, so much armour yet so little clothing!

I'm in love with Final Fantasy XII and I'd been thinking of cosplaying a character from the game for a while now, as Fran is one of my favourites and her costume is just too damn cool.

Worn at: MCM Expo May 2010

NOTE: This will hopefully be re-done again sometime soon, as i was rather unhappy with the final outcome, due to the lack of time i had. My 'tanned' skin was also pretty awful and a waste of time lol

I personally wouldn't have a clue where to start on this, but i know you'll do a wonderful job ~^_^~

you should try and get this done for May,Fran is the only main character we still need

ElegantAura posted on 1 November, 2009 - 00:38
I aim to make this for May, but I have to hope that time and money let me get it done lol

Lisu-chan posted on 25 January, 2010 - 23:55
Starting to look good! My first pair of ears were fluffy too, and though perhaps 'inaccurate' I still love them! But yes, walking through doors is going to be a pain, luckily there are only a few doors in London Expo! ^_^

ElegantAura posted on 26 January, 2010 - 00:26
Thanks for the inspiring comments everyone ^__^ I really appreciate them @Feather: Awww thank you, however i won't look as epic as your Wedding Ashe ^_^ @Lisu-Chan: I really love your other ears as they look much more accurate and bunny-like but fluffy ones are fun ^^ and thank goodness the excel centre has high ceilings lol

FairyPorchQueen posted on 29 January, 2010 - 21:24

Your fran was amazing ^^ very, very beautiful

ElegantAura posted on 31 May, 2010 - 19:50
Aww thank you for saying so, although It was constantly falling apart, which was a pain in the butt! I'm hoping to improve this, as it's far from accurate, and wasn't very easy to wear...especially in the wind, my ears almost blew away lol

Anonymous posted on 31 May, 2010 - 23:08

Limegreenjelly posted on 1 June, 2010 - 15:36

ElegantAura posted on 1 June, 2010 - 16:43
Thanks,they weren't too bad at all actually, my right foot hurt the most, and i've ended up with only one blister. The worst was when queuing up to get into expo, I ended up having to take them off >__<

Kacela posted on 1 June, 2010 - 16:57
