Information

Basic Chocobo made for my Daughter to enter Square Enixs European cosplay contest. we came sooo close to winning the trip to Japan!

She wore this at London Expo in October and took part in the Masquerade

It's made from felt mostly and Papier mache of a sort. Cereal boxes and fencing wire were used for bases. Very cheap "Blue Peter" style build...only no squeezy washing up liquid bottle needed :P

N.B: Wow I only just found out this got Showcased!! O.O thank you so much for the wonderful feedback!

in case anyone wanted more detail on how it was made there's now a facebook page "Chocobo Girl" found at facebook.com/ChocoboCosplay there's some step by step photos just in case you don't believe me that it's made mostly from cereal boxes and felt lol!!

This is a absolute work of genius and with such simple materials too! Never seen a Chocobo like this and this has been pulled off incredibly well! Very well made too!

That's such a clever way of doing a Chocobo! I've been wanting to do one for a few years but never got round to implementing my ideas. I love what you did!

This looks so well made! For simple items, it looks much more complicatedly built for all the details
