Cloud Strife - I'm a lifelong fan of Final Fantasy and I desperately wanted to create this costume to show my respect and admiration for the character!

It is the second costume I have made and I struggled. Every piece of the outfit was a learning process... I was covered in injuries by the night before debut! Mostly molten glue gun burns... And I don't think I ever want to see another piece of pleather again in my entire life!

I am a real novice to this art and my greatest respect goes out to you all, hugs to you for looking at my outfit, and a special hug if you leave a helpful comment for me!

Despite what you say this costume looks clean cut and very well put together! It looks quite natural, and quite realistic, and I like that look for the Advent Children cast. I find pleather to be a nightmare sometimes unless I'm using the right equipment, so you have my respect for persevering with this costume! (I know making my Lulu costume from it started to get irritating after a while, and now I've made Fran and Dizzy too- both from pleather as well- so I know exactly what you mean about not wanting to see anymore of it XD) I love the photographs too, they're great poses. You pull the look of fabulously ^^

Excellent Cloud cosplay. I think you've done an excellent job for your 2nd cosplay. I love the sword and the pauldron. I love the poses as well.
