Snow Villiers - Final Fantasy XIII


Auchinawa 2010

Showcased 19th May 2013 What is this?


Well decided to have this done for halloween time, but if I can get it done before even better!
Looking at buying a few key pieces such as the coat, trousers and boots, and then tailoring them to my needs. Then I will have the rest custom made.

Currently have the inner vest/coat done, and in the process of ordering the coat, trousers, boots, etc.
Will also be looking into his pendant and maybe get that custom crafted.
The coat will be tailored by myself to better hug the body as that seems to be an issue with other Snow costumes. I will probably use some kind of elastic belt on the inside of the jacket sewn on. And then maybe have velcro sewn on the legs and the lower jacket to keep the jacket flowing with the body, but this is just an idea.

My other main issue is hair, I'm iffy with wigs, not really been a cosplayer long, and I've seen bad ones ruin good costumes, so I will be growing my hair and then when it's long enough get it coloured. This shouldn't be too much of a problem as my hair is longish as it is and it also grows fairly fast.

Obligatory chest wax to finish it off!


So I'm looking at wearing this May Expo 2011, and also been asked to do a photoshoot this summer with some other awesome cosplayers, so looking to get a few bits redone and add some minor details.

The awesome group of people I will be with for the shoot are:

You've done a great job. It's hard to make a cosplay stand out when it's as commonly done as Snow is, but you've managed it.

For the upcoming Reshoot!

16th June 2011

Amulet and Gloves!

The amulet was machine printed and Yuka has it to paint it, I am not kidding when I say it looks shit hot. The printers used an in game character rip for the model.. Also ordered myself some new gloves and they've come in the nick of time for the shoot! A picture to compare the new and old. ;)

6th June 2011

New Boots!

Being done by the incredible Yuka! :D Saw them in progress and look awesome so far! (and also a new amulet in progress)...

5th May 2011


Coloured and longer now!

14th February 2011

This summer!

So, as most may not know, I have been asked to be part of a FFXIII photoshoot summer of 2011! So I'm going to get a couple of bits redone such as the boots, and going to work on a couple of extra little things too, so I will update this as I get them done!

13th October 2010


So the commission has been started now, and all should be ready in time for Auchinawa this November.

21st July 2010


So I'm getting the scarf, small chain attached to the main pendant and the arm bracer commissioned! Hopefully they'll be underway mid August, so I'll probably update again end of August.

17th May 2010


As of today things I need to do. 1. Wait for the arrival of Serah's pendant. 2. Start creating the arm bracer. 3. Finish the bandana. 4. Boots. 5. Waist scarf. 6. Black vest. 7. Grow hair and colour.

4th May 2010


Looks like I can't get the Pendants made by a jewellers, so £400 it is then for the replica's!
