View Full Version : Dual Cosplay--Cid: FFVII, Anti Sora, KHII

First things first, i'm doing Cid from FFVII: AC and need some advice from some people who have done it. Mostly though Im gonna need some tips on building barret's arm mounted gun.

Anti sora--I need to figure out how to get the patterns onto the cloth and where people got the resources to make the costumes. I know im gonna do body tights up covering my forehead and my mouth, with black goggles that have yellows eyepieces. Also i'mgonna do a custom black kingdom key with a heartless insignia as the keychain.

Any help would be appriciated! THANKS!

Is Cid going to be carrying Barrett's arm? I'm confused.

For the Keyblade, try checking out these topics.


I'm also confused about your first part with Barret's arm. o_O

We're thinking about the same Cid here, right?

For Kingdom Hearts stuff, check this thread: http://forums.cosplay.com/showthread.php?t=95867

Man, a few of us did Anti-Sora and now there's been two threads in a month.

I did everything without a pattern. There's only a single offical artwork for Anti-Sora, so I mimicked Sora's KH2 outfit, and figured out what stayed the same for the other four forms.

I guess this is an odd question, but why would you do a keyblade?

Anti-Sora is the awesome because he DOESN'T use a keyblade.

Are you doing Cid or Barret? First if your doing either look around the site and see what other people have done. I know there are several excellent cosplays of both charcters floating around so you shouldn't have much trouble.
Cid is pretty basic and shouldn't give you much trouble. I'm pretty sure he doesn't require anything that would take more work then shopping at the nearest mall. If I'm wrong I apolgize but I'm in class so I can't look up a picture.... and I'm being lazy.
Barrets arm I suggest paper mache (sp?) and just make the gun around your arm . Otherwise take a coffee can and other smaller cylinders to make the basic look of the gun. Paper mache over it and give it a back with a hole to stick your hand in. Attack a glove maybe to the inside and make sure everything is tightand secure. Give it a spray of silver paint and your good. Sorry it's rough but thats all I can think of to make the gun it's self.

Personal touch, I guess? :) I think it's an interesting idea, though I agree... Antiform Sora uses his hands (claws) in combat... no keyblade. I think it's a cool idea to make an Antikeyblade, though.

Edit: Second paragraph was meant to be on someone else's topic :D
