So, I come in here and no one has anything posted on costumes. So I guess that I will start the conversation. Fall of 2003 I was garnet till alexandros and my best friend moonie went as zidane tribal. I have some pretty good advice on how to make impssibe costumes if you need help. privit message me or leave your mark on the thread and i'll try to get back to you asap.

uhh..i was baralai from FFX-2 at AX2003 and plan to wear it at AnimeReactor 2003, ACen 2k4 and possibly at AX2004 as well.

funny thing is that the people who were lookin to take pics w/ any FFX-2 character they saw PASSED me by like 10 times and still didn't want to take a picture w/ me. i had to ask for like every picture. the only ones who recognized me instantly were the gambler yuna and paine (great costumes btw).

i think the yevon symbols plastered all over my costumes gave it away that i was from FFX at least...c'mon give me at least that much credit. heh.

Mee again, I hear that you are wanting to do an aris costume. Moonies little sister did an aris costume and it looked asome. it was all handmade and it looked cool. She had this kind of sheet material cloth for the dress and the same for the jaket wich was really little. I advise you to make sure that you go two panles on the back and not just one. Just go panel by panel. If you don't, you won't be able to get it on.

Thanks for the advice! I've been looking for a pattern, I can't seem to find one. I'll probably have to do a regular tank dress and then just cut the front. What do you mean by panels though? I don't quite understand. >_<

Yeah ^^ She was awesome. My friends were dressed as FFX characters, so they got a pic with her. I have a pic in my gallery if you haven't seen any.

Well, what i mean is if you look at like a shirt or something you will see that usually there is a seam down the back of it. To make this easer, insead of doing one lage peace of fabric an just adding the flaps on the front, use two peices on the back. then you add the frount of it on the the pice you've already sewn together. it's alittle complicated but it works. if you need more help i could send you diagrams.

I was the Bahamut at Otakon. :) It's not finished yet though so I have to do that... I've also done a Quistis costume from FFVIII which was quite comfy to wear... :D I love seeing other FF cosplayers at the cons. It's so cool! :bigtu:
All of the FF costumes I saw at Otakon were awesome! Especially the ones at the shoot on Sat! :D
