I need some help; I'm trying to make a costume for myself in the style of Fujin from Final Fantasy VIII...but I have NO IDEA even how to begin to start thinking about how to make her pinwheel. Is that what it is? Either way, I need some help. Also, are her pants dark blue or black?...

I'm probably going to go black and if I get myself laughed out of the masquerade then I'll go make blue ones.

Any suggestions? hellcat_7505@hotmail.com

I've cosplayed Fuujin, but I went without her weapon. Still works by my standards and she's a recognizale character without a weapon. But if you still wanna go hardcore w/ it, either make it out of wood or buy foam board at Michaels. They do carry a ring shaped foam board... then you can try to make the triangular razor pieces out from scratch and super glue them on the ring. I made her armplate out of foamboard, gave it SEVERAL coats of silver metallic paint and it still came out lovely.

Fuujin's blouse is blue and her pants are black. BTW, my cosplay pic of Fuujin (http://nekocathy.8m.com/images/Otakon/seiferfuujin.jpg) might help you. :)

Becareful about the metal part if your going to conventions- most won't let you in w/ a weapon made of metal and will peacebond it.

well, i always make the props last. reguardless of how you make this one be prepared to spend a few hours on it, some of the staves in ff can take up to 5 hrs.

Thank you SO MUCH, it has been a HUGE help. I couldn't seem to figure out what the inside of her pinwheel looked like from the picture I had and this one was a big push in the right direction.

I say her pants are dark blue, though her boots are black.

A good place to start would be to get a shirt pattern, then alter it and add the gold/yellow parts.

I still want to do a Fujin one day, I'd had that silver hair-spray sitting in the cubbord for ages...

Her pants are dark blue.

^_^ I'm thinking about selling my pinwheel, along with the shoulder armor. There's a picture of the costume in my gallery, if you're interested. If you're not. . .well, I made both out of plastic sheeting and craft foam.
