Information

My first attempt at armour making.
Although I'm pleased with the end result, the armour was rough and untidy, I still have a lot to learn about armour making.

Oh wow! This is looking amazing! I would ask of you'd like to join us with the rest of the Final Fantasy Round Up. We're sorely lacking VIII presence except for Sunday of course

Kiros! YES YES YES YES YES! And you have the perfect skin tone. Yes!!!!! Awesome.

WarriorTeddy posted on 26 September, 2011 - 17:33
=D thank you. I just realised, you're on the FF Round-up group on FB, me too :)

SlimDefinition posted on 26 September, 2011 - 17:49
:-) Indeed. You don't know how long I've been hoping someone like you would do Kiros. FFVIII may not be my favourite of the franchise, but I always really liked Kiros' character design and that someone appropriate should cosplay him. I'm looking forward to seeing it finished!

I absolutly loved this! It was so refreshing to see a group Cosplay with Kiros, Ward and Laguna as opposed to the usual Squall n Rinoa groups etc :)

Manticore posted on 8 November, 2011 - 19:01
Agreed with Sketchy boy! It was a trip down memory lane that made me smile superbly!

WarriorTeddy posted on 9 November, 2011 - 12:35

armour fitting

Okay.... I don't know whether to laugh or cry at this
Still have a bit of sanding and the painting to do
oh and attaching the pauldrons is a right pain

Arm Armour

Following Sensei's design plan I have now created armour for both arms. Next up, resin mixing fun

crotch shot XD

I know - it looks like a skirt lol. I do hope to cut down the side panels to a more appropriate shape

Chest Armour

with directions from FusionRose (my cosplay sensei) I have now begun to craft the chest plate (cardboard + resin + fiberglass)

so far it looks like a smexy tank top lolz

Weapon

I'm going for the less complicated cardboard - papermache combination
