I haven't seen anyone cosplay as this person
So... I plan to do that for AX2004... although, I don't have the skills to do the costume... If there are any suggestions to make this costume easy, I would be thankful
Anyway, I plan to have speakers hidden so I can play the Hymn of the Fayth while I walk around the con. ;)
Play someone else's hymn! Bahamut's singing grates on my nerves. Darn little kid voice.
For those gold bits handing off his belt, I'd recommend sculpting one, making a mold of it, and then just doing a lot of castings rather than making the whole thing.
If you're nervous about painting on his jacket, for his wheel and detailing, you can paint them on a very thin material and then glue this to the costume, There are all sorts of glues that are made for applying patches and the like. Just make sure you apply it thinly so it doesn't look glued on.
If you airbrush the dark parts onto the fabric, it shouldn't be hard to get that mottled effect that his pants have.
Go out looking for those shoes now. They're summery and shouldn't be hard to find for cheap. Check out the women's section, if you have small feet.

Someone cosplayed as the Bahamut Fayth kid back at AX02. It was cute cuz he/she (I couldn't tell ^^) was holding the Bahamut statue.

Sculpting? Er... I don't have any artistic talent what so ever... and I don't know where I would go to do such. I could get it made out of wood...
Go to any craft supply shop and ge some modeling clay (Or hell. even play dough would work. I used that once XD
First draw the shape onto a peice of paper and cut it out. Flatten out the clay with a glass or old wooden block (not your mom's fave rolling pin. The clay may discolor it, or worse, stick to it) then place the shape on top of it (Don't press) with a butter knife, cut out the shape, and remove all the estra stuff off the edges. Now you can decide if you want the shapes on the little yellow things to be carved down or lifted up If carved down, just take a blunt instrument, and draw the designs into the clay. If you want them to stick up, roll the extra clay into thin "snakes" and arrange them on top of the base shape. smooth down the edges, so they don't look like little tubes arranged on top of the clay, but like parts of the clay itself.
Ta daah! Now it's read to have a mold of it made, and then several castings (replicas) made from the mold.

I'll sing when my CD batteries get low... or when I feel like it. I already remember the words to the song:
E eh you e
Noo meh ahh
Reh en me re
Yo jew yo go
Hah stah tay kah nah a
Ku tah mah ay
