Faize Sheifa Beleth - Star Ocean 4: The Last Hope


KitaCon 2010


Almost there, almost there.

I'm making the sword too!


[edit] Wore this again to MCM Expo May 10 on a Saturday. So windy there, my wig just went arghhhh can't copeeee. Still, it was fun.

If I were to wear this again lots of repairs need to be done first, and I'm not so keen on repairs. So I have no idea if I'll wear this again. But it was fun and I learned a lot making it!

any idea when the 'due date' on these is? all I've done so far on mine is paint some shoes,lol

Shannon > there isn't one really I think? But I'm working on it now because I'm going to Cardiff VGL and thought it'd be fun to have a costume to wear there... but the real "debut" at a con/expo/photoshoot will definitely be with you guys, whenever your costumes are ready!

tattikat posted on 29 October, 2009 - 21:06
aaah,ok XD was just wondering because i've got a touhou and an organisation XIII to do for May Expo lol

I totally didn't realise this was you *facepalms* You took a photo of me in my Abel Nightroad and I told you how I loved your cosplay and how underappreciated Star Ocean was LOL

Pez posted on 2 June, 2010 - 01:16

BlusterSquall posted on 7 October, 2010 - 23:54
OMG! FAAAAAIIIIIZZZZZZZE~! <3 I'm currently playing through this and debating cosplaying from it. Your Faize is immense and so accurate. Love it~ <3 You so need a Lym to bully you! x3

Pez posted on 8 October, 2010 - 19:39
Silver > Thank you very much!!! I love Faize so much, the poor boy gets bullied by Lymle a lot. XD Have fun with the game, I got a bit annoyed with it towards the second half but still, great story!

Yes! Progress!

Mwahaha! This is looking better than I expected!

These go on the bottom of the shorts. They're made out of craft foam. Not sure how to attach them yet... and maybe I'll only attach them when I wear the whole thing, so that I can still fold the shorts and take them to places without worrying about things cracking, breaking, paint rubbing off etc... they're only foam and so are pretty flexible, but better be safe heh?

Actually started ages ago but forgot to write about it! This is the outfit so far, made out of faux suede and faux leather. Going to sew the leather shorts onto the suede ones, and when I wear it I think I'll somehow stuff them to make them look more balloony.
