Oh boy~!

Fran is my most fav costume, (even though I have a runnerup, nowadays) and she's the best female character IMO!

A lot of time, money and versions has gone into this. I've used 3 wigs in total for this costume, but I stick to this one now.

Armor is wonderflex, craft foam and cardboard.
'Chainmail' is actually fabric!

If you have any questions please do ask!

Wonderful Fran! Super impressed by the ears, that seems to be the make-or-break on most Frans and yours pretty natural (for a crazy design) and just blend in with the costume :)

@leumas; I'm sure ElegantAura will do a wonderful job on hers! Better if I go as Vayne, right? (more characters)

@ElegantAura; It may look easy, but I spend... HOURS and HOURS upon HOURS looking to her IN GAME (no wonder my save file is HUGE!) One time my brother popped in wondering why I was staring at some girl's... yeahhhh...
If you think I can help you with anything, let me know, Im glad to help with Fran! ^_^

Oh we've already got a Fran? My memory is appalling.Yes a Vayne would be awesome :D I'll keep an eye out for your progress if you don't mind me adding you as a friend?

Hee hee I can imagine that seemed strange, I've got loads of pictures of Fran on my laptop from various angles but I think I'll be playing the game a lot more to study the details too lol And thank you for offering your help will be greatly appreciated, I'll send you a note if I get stumped with anything....which will be likely with me lol
Ooo and if you do Vayne, that would just be epic!!
