Information

Provisionally planned for debut at Auchinawa 2014, although I anticipate some revisions will be required after Kain's first outing.

Also planned for a Dissidia group at MCM and an FFIV group at Kitacon 2015!

Kain Highwind is one of my all-time favourite Final Fantasy characters, so I'm really excited about the prospect of making this costume. It's been a bit of a dream costume of mine for a long time - these days I'm confident enough that I can make the armour to the level of detail I want. So, here goes! :)

Thank you! I adore Kain, he's been a dream cosplay for such a long time! Hopefully I can do him justice. :) We're planning an FFIV group next year too! :D

Thank you so much! I'm slowly adding to it but I need to make a few more bits and neaten it up in places. It's a long project, hopefully it'll eventually be how I want it! xD
