Zack Fair (1st Class SOLDIER) - Final Fantasy VII: Crisis Core


London MCM Expo October 2010

Won 'Best Group Cosplay' at the Asahi Brighton Japan Festival with my friend as Genesis 2011

Watch on Youtube


This is my first ever proper Cosplay, and even though in hindsight i could make it differently/better im still quite proud of how it came out.

The Boots i brought from Shoe Zone, the 2 Small Belts from H&M, and the Trousers and Zip Up Top i bought from Primark
I made the Boot Covering, Main Belt, and Starps from Pleather, while the Shoulder Pads are made from EVA Foam Tiles.
I cut the Sleeves off the Top and sewed it so it didnt fray.
Thei died my hair black and spiked it up, while the Bang is made from a bit that i cut off a wig that i jelled and glued to a hair clip from an old hair extention.

So far i've worn it at:
-London MCM Expo October 2010
-London MCM Expo May 2011
-Asahi Brighton Japan Festival 2011

Amazing Zack! As someone who's wanting to do a Zack cosplay and spent hours pouring over reference pics you've got great attention to detail!

Found you! Best Zack ever! How, how, how did you get EVA to behave to well when making the shoulder pads? They're so perfectly rounded!

Nomes: I cut 4 thin triangles out of it so it looked kinda like a 'holy cross' so that when i heated it up in the oven and bent it over my knee i could pull it in tight and get it really curved. Then i glued and taped all along the join lines to keep it in place. Cez: Of course i used it, its one of my fav pics that was taken :D
