Genesis Rhapsodos - Final Fantasy VII: Crisis Core




My first cosplay, which is a little rushed as I was planning on doing a completely different one about two months ago. I'm going to update a lot of things for next time around, but for now at least it's all come together fairly well.

Basically though, I chose this cosplay because from the very instant I came across the Junon Cannon cutscene (before I even owned Crisis Core) I fell in love with this completely flawed character ^--^. After finding out more about him and through playing CC, I have to say he's become my favourite FF character. Plus, his character design is FREAKIN AWESOME so cosplaying him was really just the next step.

EDIT: Have updated this cosplay A LOT since I first wore it. I now have a new coat, much better hair/wig and a Rapier to go with it all. I still love wearing this thing, even a year after I first attempted to cosplay Genesis.

Also worn on: MCM London Expo May '09 and Saturday of London Expo October '09

Lazard, as I'm sure you already know, approves muchly of his angsty, Loveless obsessed SOLDIER 8D *gives two gold stars* xD (I had so much fun cosplaying him with you and your epic Genesis~!) You look so FABULOUS as him! <3 xD *huggles*

Well, the expo was completely amazing and I loved every minute of it. I&#039;ll be reprising this cosplay in May but with some alterations - mainly with the inclusion of the Rapier, some boot-covers and some adjustments to this and that (especially the hair O.o). Hope to see you all there again! ^_^
