Cid Highwind - Final Fantasy VII: Advent Children





Basically, some people asked me to do this. After my Angeal Hewley audition for World VII, some of the people who saw it thought I'd make a good Cid. I looked into it and...I realised I always had Cid on my team, he saves people's asses in VII, AC and why not?

Where else can I swear up a storm, cosplay a cool character, wear a comfortable costume and still feel good about it?

I'm actually quite psyched!

EDIT: It's finished now, I'll try and get some pictures up soon!

O_O You really think so? It's a shame I never got any photos with the wig on before I sold it...

Zelda posted on 23 January, 2010 - 12:37
Yeah it's awesome and i bet the wig was awesome to, i really wanna have a picture with you with my ffVII tifa cause you rarely see cids =[ and he is awesome.

sjbonnar posted on 23 January, 2010 - 12:55
Aww, but my costume is the Advent Children version :-( I agree, he is awesome!

Zelda posted on 23 January, 2010 - 12:58
Well i can wear my advent children tifa cause she's done =D! Do you plan to get more awesome piccys of the costume? =] Cid deserved more time on screen in advent children, but i loved the part in the game when you were him =D.

sjbonnar posted on 23 January, 2010 - 12:59
Heh, I agree with that! But he gets a fair bit of time in Dirge so it wasn't too bad! I don't have the wig anymore though :-(

Cid Progress

Shirt and trousers sorted! Goggles on the way, boots on the way, wig on the way. Dunno what I'm doing about his jacket and the spear is underway soon ^_^ Coming along fast and it makes me happy!

This was a surprise!

I've never had a costume suggested by others before...and when it was, I quite liked it LOL

At any rate, the same day I agreed, I bought the shirt and trousers without a problem. I've got the dowel left over to start the spear so this should in theory work quite well. We'll see how that goes LMAO
