Lord Rasler - Final Fantasy XII


AmeCon 2008




This took me ages to make but most of it sort of came together in the last three weeks before Amecon 2008. Seriously, all of the sealing of the foam took forever. However i really loved wearing it at Ame. I'm so proud of how it turned out, especially as i hadn't actually wore the whole thing before the Saturday of Amecon so i was pleased it all fitted together.

My fave thing was the belt as i made everything on it from scratch including the brown belt itself. Plus i was up doing that late Thursday night with very little glue as we were running out.

The hardest part to make was the cape as, although it's only painting the pattern on, there is like just one shot of the top half of the cape and a very small piece of the bottom bit of the cape to work from. So a lot of it was sort of improvised baseed on what i could see in the pictures.

All in all i'm sooooooooooo happy with it. Officially this was the first cosplay i ever started even though i finished my Lucia one before it so everything about it was a first for me.
