Firi - Lamento; Beyond the Void




I fell in love with the BL game Lamento as soon as I first set eyes on the character designs. It's simply gorgeous! I wanted to cosplay a character from it for some time, thinking that Konoe would be best suited to me, but then Firi came along....X3


It's because I really want to be part of a Lamento group, but I can't see it ever happening. T^T There just isn't enough love for this games out there (or people who even know what it is!)


I actually had this costume commissioned a LONG time ago, years now in fact, back when I didn't have the confidence to try and make it myself (or the brains to know when a costume will NEVER BE WORN =__= )but the near0finished article that you see today had to be SO modified that I may as well have made it from scratch. Typical eBay seller, made the costume tent sized. >_< Such a waste of money. Anyway, it's still a little on the baggy side but at least I don't look quite so much like a big-top anymore. I had to replace all the accessories with my own because they were, quite simply, CRAP.
I made the tail out of some mystery material that shines like scales. *_* It;s all squishy and bobbly, so it doesnt hurt to sit on it! (though I am afraid my bum will burst it!)

I never expected Lamento to be cosplayed here in the UK. It's nice to see someone who likes it as well :D. I'll be cosplaying Lamento myself on a Sunday of the October Expo, together with a few people. I'll be Konoe though. ^_^

It is indeed nice to see people who know about and who cosplay Lamento here in the UK *w* I'll be in a Lamento group with Rosiael for October Expo too as Kaltz. Rejoice for more Lamento love. \o/

Firi! I've seen a few Konoes and Rais but never a Firi. The Tail is so cute! What did you make it out of?

Aww, thankyou~! It's made from some strange, scaley fabric that's rather stretchy and filled with polystyrene balls to keep it lightweight. Sorry, I dont know what the name of the material is. It's just some generic, synthetic crud. XD

I DON'T REMEMBER SEEING THIS! :O :O You look awesome!

Awesome photos! :3 Lamento doesn't get enough love, it's true. I mean, it's not like I know a lot about it, but it's awesome for the characters alone. *__* <3

Man you suit him so much! About the group I know the cosplay group I'm in is planning to do a Lamento group sometime and I'm pretty sure we don't have this character, so you could perhaps join us to a con or something? :3 Just a suggestion due to the description xD I'm sure the rest of the peeps wont mind. But seriously, epic cosplay!

Ooh, ZOMBIEfurby, thanks so much for the suggestion...and that is indeed very tempting. X3 If you don't find a Firi for whichever con it is you're attending I'd be more than happy to join. Sankyuu~! ^_^

No problem~ We'll be doing it to Mcm Oct 2011 and Tnc on the other day. At the moment the ones in which I'm aware that we have are ; Asato, Rai, Konoe, Bardo, Poe, Kaltz and maybe a Tokino.
