Zidane Tribal (Monkey Boy!) - Final Fantasy IX/Dissidia


Hyper Japan 2011

2nd Place at Double Cosplay Competition - Hyper Japan 2011




Yes. . . it's happening. . . if i ever crossplayed. . i knew zidane was one i wanted to do, and now i am. . just lol right XD. I can feel the pain of chest binding coming back already. However I promise nightmarewings a while back, that when she does princess garnet, I would be her zidane and so forth it is finally put up, I have a feeling this costume is going to be painful and im going to regret this. . but what the hell, he has a tail and hes hot so how can i bloody well resist. . and them blades. . . just waaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaant!!!

28/04/2011 - My princess and her pain in the ass general. . . . this monkey boy is getting into gear. . it's in progress my ladies XD

Base shirt

heres my base shirt, needs a lot of work, but its a start :)

18th July 2011

Orange mini belt

this is yet another thing that hangs off zidanes belts XD!!, I made this by taking apart a landyard, and then hooping the orange ribbon round the metal clip. Ta da :)

18th July 2011

First belt completed and second belt added

Second belt has no detailing on it, it's just oddly postitioned on zidane, via being attached off a hanging bit that comes off his first belt. This mini piece is attached under the first belt and comes down. I then used clips to attach the belt in the way that zidane has his :)

18th July 2011

First belt

The buckle is madr out fo strong cardboad, however im probably going to make a new one as i don't like this one. Clips are at the back of it so i can attach it round my hips. Then buttons added via hot glue :)
