Lightning - Claire Farron RETIRED (Gardian core outfit ) - Final Fantasy XIII


This cosplay was made with only a few refrence photo's to go with and i feel that i did quite well with it, i feel that after playing the game she needs alot of work perhaps a whole new costume to be made as i have missed alot of the detail and i would like to have a go at making her shoulder armour with the glowing pannels and try making a fully moving gunblade

fabric painting and craft foam sewing

well this week i have redone my gloves that fell to bits !! but had problems with sewing on the silver trim as i kept on stabbing myself! lol and i have been painting my yellow pockets! they now are a pinky tan colour as my sister bought a cark red instead of a brown ! but it looks realy good so much better than the yellow so im going to keep it. had to re do the shoulder pad as it didnt fit right when i fixed it onto the jacket so i took it of trimed it down and velcroed it onto the jacket and it fits much better now. i have finished the boots i added another belt in the middle to hold the fabric covered craft foam inserts and they are looking realy good.

3 months later

got my wig through and it was well worth the wait!! i love it to bits and i started on sewing together all the peices of fabric that has been cut out and waiting on some spare time to become a costume, everything went together quite quickly till the sewing machine went down!!! and to top it all off the stuff i sent to my mums came back and she has made the pockets and the trims for the coat out of yellow !! pleather and not tan material like it was supost to be so now im having to try and fix it should i just cover the yellow with the tan fabric?? or die the yellow and pray it looks ok?? or start from scratch again im so confused its not long to the expo so i hope it works out. xx
