Cloud Strife (Wall Market dress) - Final Fantasy VII




Worn only once for an evening for the Cosplay Ball, so I'm planning on reusing this one sometime.

Wig - Same one as used for the Crisis Core costume. The plaits were made from two of those thick clip-in ponytails sewn to a wig cap worn beneath the main wig.

Dress - Found a dress with a similar style in a charity shop and used that to create a pattern. Then used said pattern to sew the dress out of the new purple material I'd bought. I had a lot of help from my mother with that - I can't use a sewing machine to save my life. >> I made the pattern and pinned everything into place and gathered the skirt and sleeves, she sewed (is that even a word?) everything down. ^^;; The collar was cut off from one of my brother's old school shirts that I stole and sewn onto the dress, and the chain for the locket was sewn into place beneath it.

Sash and bow - I was making this part up as I went along. >> Made from some random red silk that my mother had floating around and let me steal. The bow is kept in shape by wire inside.

Shoes/stockings/tiara - Bought from various stores.
