You never ever fail to amaze me of your construction and mechanical skills! *_* The puppet chocobo is so unique that I'm surprised u didn't get an award! D: Nevertheless not only do you make an amazing Zack but you have made the UK cosplayers proud! xx

That's incredible! The chocobo face is so cute, you really got the details perfect. Hope you'll bring it out again to a UK event too :)

Thanks guys. I had such a brilliant time in Paris. I feel so lucky to have had the opportunity. Everyone I met was lovely and I'm inspired to keep working on cosplay. There's still so much to learn. Thank you again for all your support.

Gah! So awesome! Featherrrrrrrs~

Good grief, how many feathers are on that thing?! I don't think I've seen a fully feathered chocobo before, most people use fur - your willingness to go the extra mile for accuracy is inspiring :)

LemonPanda posted on 17 July, 2012 - 14:10
oh man this is amazingggg~ <3

Kata-san posted on 17 July, 2012 - 18:33
I saw a picture of this on Facebook and thought it was amazing!! I didn't realise it was you. This is so AWESOME!!

Nomes posted on 18 July, 2012 - 12:50
^_^ Thanks everyone. Hearing from you all makes the time and effort that much more worth it. Odangochan: erm... a few thousand feathers? I purchased about 17,000 feathers as I ended up having to buy them in bulk (unreliable supplier). I probably have enough left to make another Chocobo XD

madmazda86 posted on 19 July, 2012 - 14:52
You could make a herd of Chocobos with that many feathers! So worth it though, it looks amazing :D

Manticore posted on 26 July, 2012 - 09:43
Wow! Just wow! I mean it looks like the real thing! Just wow! Well done!

Wow! Eurocosplay! Eurocosplay! Enter it into Eurocosplay! :D

Larxene posted on 18 September, 2012 - 22:53
Thats beautiful and amazingly cute at the same time. Those feathers must have taken forever, its the most realistic one I've seen.

Nomes posted on 27 September, 2012 - 20:02
Thank you all for the lovely comments. ----- Ranmasyaoran: XD Thank you so much for thinking this worthy of EC. Maybe one day. This cosplay has already been used in a european coslay comp though and even though it didn't win and there are no rules against it I would feel iffy entering the same outfit into a second european competition ----- Larxene: Many feathers and many contact adhesive fumes. It's taken a long time to get rid of the bits of feather fluff from around the house.
