Tidus
Final Fantasy X

Cosplayer: Ino

Status: Complete

Condition: Not Set

1st April 2012: Stupid surfer hair His hairstyle is annoying! I'm still working on it a bit. I will cake this in gel and hairspray at Kita, I swear. Sorry about my face as well XD;

27th March 2012: Just be finished already This is very close to completion. Wheee! All I have left is to cut and style the wig, and make a new chest suit. I really can't think of anything else I need to do. O_o What a weird feeling!

Oh, and I want to have a blitzball, but all I really have to do is paint a football. Not entirely accurate, but would it be a serious crime if I didn't add the nobbley bits?

13th March 2012: OMG Shoes One person will get the reference in the title of this post. XD

I've had to mod these by adding the crazy amounts of yellow to them. They're not 100% accurate but I'm pretty happy with them :D

6th March 2012: Completely practical arm wear -COUGH- Well, the good news is that this costume, which I thought would be a deceptively pain in the neck, has gone smoothly and doesn't look as shabby as usual. I'm not sure why the FF gods have blessed me this time round, but maybe it's because they are taking pity on poor chibi!Tidus.

This armour thingy gives me arm cramp within 30 seconds, BUT - I quite like it. It still needs a chain and rings to complete it. I can manage that. Yes ...

19th January 2012: ASBO Tidus Now, I didn't take progress shots of my hoodie, BECAUSE it was really a test run that actually went ok. So my first attempt is also my last. XD Never made a hood before, so that's my excuse for it being a bit odd. Overall I'm pretty pleased with it, and it looks fairly snazzy when I put it on with the dungarees.

It is also, for all those die-hard perfectionists and FF fans, not the correct colour. But it has ridges in it, and that's good enough for me. Do you know how hard it is to find yellow fabric that is stretchy/ridged???? DO YOOU???? It's hard.

16th January 2012: My Inner Death The Kid Rages On Here they are from the front! Adding the zip details was fun but harder than it seems. @_@

14th January 2012: Me Trooooooooooooosers Ok, so the next step was the trousers. Rather than making the whole thing dungarees, I decided to make to seperate things. Trust me, it'll be better this way! Easier to put on and take off. I think I've made more pairs of trousers for cosplay than anything else. Anyway, this was the first bit I did, making them into shorts.

13th January 2012: From The Back The back of the dungaree thing

11th January 2012: The Next Little Bit I put the lil cross things on. Ta da.

8th January 2012: The First Why YES, I have been working on this. It all began a while ago, probably back in October or something. I cut out some fabric, and then I abandoned it in favour of non-cosplay stuff. But I pulled it out and stuck it all together. Damn I love Tidus's dungaree things, so that's what I'm starting with. Here's a picture of the work I've done on them, although they need tidying up somewhat. I'm pretty happy with it!

Thanks dudessssss~

Well, it's a hint that I'm starting to think about how the hell I'm going to do this. It's a deceptively detailed cosplay. T-T

I was going to say wait, what, how did I manage to miss ALL your progress updates on Tidus!? Then I noticed you posted all the journals on the same day. Sneaky. But the progress is great! Your Tidus-wear is looking all-around fabulous. I salute your valiant efforts to find the rare Lesser Spotted Yellow Ridge Material.

Second Nomes comment! It looks great so far! And as for the color of the top? It looks damn close to me going by the in game ref pic you have!

...three comments on one costume is probably spam but, gauntlet. The gauntlet needs a comment all of its own. Clean lines and shape, it looks excellent even if it does compromise bloodflow to your arm!

I meant to check this something like three weeks ago. Jeez, what amz linear time? (also: go commentspam of which I am a master) Anyway. I stand by what I said on that long-lost night on messenger with your first photograph: hell yeah. You really made Tidus work for you aesthetically, and the costume build quality is so high. Very successful context/group photographs, too-- everyone looks great together.

P.S: nice blitzball, did you pull off the Jecht Shot? ;D
