Odin (the NON-gestalt form + Gulgner) - Final Fantasy XIII


no awards but lots of features in things such as Xbox Live




Worn at London MCM October 2011 and got so much love

Omgzorz I loved making this so muchhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh

The costume was about 90% made by my friend who was the wearer, (I was Lightning) I made the weapon (Gulgner) myself, it is functional and comes apart

Unfortunately as time progressed we ran out of resources that are only avaliable in summer-or on ebay at stupid shipping times- so theres no shield despite us calling this costume complete, but it has been worn and in many shoots.

Made mostly of foam, rub'n'buff and acrylic paint, masking tape, wire tape, Fish glue, plenty of shaping wire, glue mixed in the paint, 3 scarves, long chains, and plenty of charms, all held on with elastic over black leggings and a polo-neck, and a cap to hide my friends vibrant red hair
+ green face paint :D

This costume got extremely hot + extremely cold :D
and because of the size of the helmet, Sophie would often blow away (Excel's really windy haha)

We had a casualty on one of the knees, and a shoe,
But some people are impatient enough to shove past people with large costumes, and stood on Sophie's foot- however this is repairable

Hard board, dowling, double ended screws, paint, tons of tape, electrical wire,
Tool used for engravings + blade edge: a Router
stands about 5'9" tall a comfortable weight but cant be run around with, I have held this weapon above my head and span it around and it was stable, but the dowling in this probably wouldnt hold being thrown about
