Ok well within the next week I will be working my butt off for my Cloud cosplay and so far I got is I got the frame for Cloud's shoulder pad and still working on it.

Tommorow I will be getting ALL the materials needed for his cosplay (Excluding the sword). So everyday (well maybe everyday) I will update this thread with pictures and progress of my Cloud cosplay starting tommorow till the day before AX. Im hoping to get some advice and comments from you guys :) to help me perfect it. Remember this is my FIRST cosplay ever..
And Im doing a Masquerade Skit so watch out :eek:

Right now all I got is this picture of my Cloud's emblem on his shoulder pad...crap lost it somewhere...
Anyways I need advice on how to like recast it or something to get it like 2.5x its size. Its made out of metal I believe so I wanna make an exact replicate but larger and apply some metallic paint or something..
So any advice please give some,Thanks!

-MJ

(Oh did I mention I have all the time in the world this week to work on it.)

This is going to be cool. I don't really have any advice because I have never cosplayed before. Sorry.
Good luck on the Cloud cosplay though.

**holds up a some what confused hand**
by KH2 cloud...do you mean Advent Children cloud or am I missing somthing?

oh yes... FF7AC cloud was my first cosplay a little over 2 years ago...... GOD was it bad! XD
but it look's like your's is going to look better than mine did... the only cool part of my cosplay is I had my hair blond with 7 inch spikes! I love oquanet.
any how, I don't know much at all about casting, but I know what I did for my wolf head, I went to lose and get a cabinet door opener that was in the shape of a lion, that even had a ring coming out of its mouth.
I though it looked ok, but this was back before the movie even came out in Japan so I don't know what people would think of doing that now.

good luck, I can't wait to see how it comes out!
