Laguna Loire (Galbadian Soldier Uniform) - Final Fantasy VIII




I <3 Laguna with a passion.

I was originally going to do laguna (normal outfit though) for my first cosplay but it was changed to rinoa instead as it was easier at the time.

This shall be on the sunday of London MCM Expo in October 2011!!

to be worn with:
Numta3 - Ward
WarriorTeddy - Kiros

The most challenging part of this cosplay will be the fact them Ben, Joey and I will be using the exact same materials and making it in the exact same way so all the uniforms are similar xD


Put into in progress as i've started work on it (I'll be editing my Tifa wig as the bottom of that wig has been ruined so i can't really use it for Tifa xD) Can't wait to do this, woop woop! ordered some corrugated paper roll for the base of the armour, just waiting for it to turn up to see what it's like and if it's any good i shall be informing my ward and kiros so they can get some for themselves.

19.10.11 - Update on where i am. Apologies i haven't put up any progress pictures but because i'm so in a rush with this i seriously don't have time to just stop and keep taking pictures >.< Besides the hubby has the camera so i can only really do it when he's here =/ Basically i'm quite far behind with this and i got lots to do since i'm making Numta's Ward as well. I've ordered boiler suits for underneath however they are currently at the post office >.< My wig is about 90% done, just needs a little bit more styling. My gun is 50% done, base is made - just hardening it up atm and then going to paint it. Boots i have. All the armour parts are i the middle of being hardened up and then i'll be painting them this weekend. Seriously these costumes are stoppin my social life, all i can do is - work - come home - cosplay work - sleep >.< But it should all be worth it. I'm also yet to order meh green contacts, will be doing that on pay day =D x.

Ooh looking forward to this. How did you decide to do your armour in the end?

Hang in there, I'm also having trouble with mine, the body filler is making things complicated - but we can do this! :)

Did you hear the massive cheer when you walked onto the Expo stage. Fantastic to see his trio together. I've never seen this version cosplayed before.

naww thanks guys! This cosplay is now down in my favourite cosplays because the guys truly made expo for me! <3 I wasn't too proud of this as it was too rushed but hopefully when we do the trio in their casual outfits it will look much better lol xD x.

This cosplay is a demon -_-

This cosplay has caused me so much drama >.< It's basically taken over my entire life and it still isn't near completion =[ I will get this finished for expo, even if i dont sleep (which may most likely be the case >.<) and i am never using this method for armour again - never ever ever x.

Armour planning

We've now decided on how we are going to make all the armour - its gonna cost moneys and its gonna be a lot of hard work but it will be worth it =D however i can't figure out how we will do crotch armour AHHHHHHHHH damn you crotch armour!!
