Costume Information

First of all I said I would wait until I played before I cosplayed him.

Now i'm currently playing and I said i'd wait until I finish the game before I upload him here.

I haven't finished. But IloveHopeIloveHopeIloveHopeIloveHopeIloveHope...*Ahem*... I'm rather fond of him so I think this is a definate. 8'D Why deny the inevitable? xD

Also his name is my middle name. |: IT'S FATE OKAY. XD

I really hope (hur hur) I pull him off okay. >< I'm kinda terrified about doing it badly!

EDIT: It's finally happening at october expo! :3

Neckerchief (Posted 14th October 2015)

Sewn, painted and added trim. Simple enough!

Received costume! (Posted 11th September 2015)

I've been dying to try out taobao for buying cosplays for ages. Mainly cause it just baffles me how they can be so cheap xD. Because I had a bit of money spare I decided to test it out with a cosplay I've wanted to do for ages but have no desire to make (please god no more feckin crop jackets!) hope from ff13! I got it today and it actually fits! The bits not pictured are the bits I was aware I'd have to remake when ordering (neck scarf, gloves etc) as usual I have the issue of my legs being too short so I'll have to mod it a little there. You can tell it's cheaper materials etc but on the whole I'm pleased. In general I prefer to make my costumes but I don't always have the time/desire to do it, so this was a productive experiment! Once I've fixed him up I'll be wearing him at October expo.
