Squall Leonhart - Final Fantasy 8




The costume is Squall's regular outfit in game. I wanted to make this costume as he is one of my favourite Final Fantasy characters amd i've always liked his jacket lol.

The hardest part was trying to find the correct type of belts for the costume, I searched for quite some time to find ones that looked even remotely like his and finally settled on some from Asda of all places lol. Of course after the MCM expo there was loads of places that sold that style of belt, typical thing to happen really :s

I'd say the easiest part was moding the leather jacket, I just had to make it shorter and add fur to it (the fur is my favorite part as its super fluffy and soft ^^).

Whilst at the MCM I had a blast dressed as Squall, there was a big photoshoot for all the Final Fantasy cosplayers and I also got to meet new friends in the process one of which is my good friend Emma who was dressed as Rinoa~♥ and we had photos taken together too ^^

I've worn my Squall outfit 3 times at events now, one of which I did a femme version (not that different really I had shorts instead and wore knee high socks with the harness boots - everything else was the same). By far the original one I did was much better :D
