Tonberry (Based on FFVIII style Tonberry) - final fantasy


Minami Con 17 (2011)

This won a prize in the Minami 17 masquerade.




Dave wanted to cosplay as a Tonberry and I thought it'd be a fun costume to make.

I was really pleased with how this turned out. It seemed like a bad idea to have a real candle in the lantern but I got a battery powered model one that flickered like a candle so that the lantern glowed nicely.

As Dave couldn't see at all when he had the costume head on I made a Final Fantasy I (NES) style red mage costume to wear myself when he wore this so I had a costume I could see in and make sure that he didn't bump into anything.

This is amazing! I love Tonberry's :D but for some reason they always remind me of the thing from Simon the Sorceror XD
