Final Fantasy VII
Last Updated: 10-06-2008
Alright, time for the outfit specs! After many years of being told to make a Sephiroth outfit, I waited for the right opportunity to do so. When Amano was arriving as a Guest of Honor for NYAF 2008, THAT was the opportunity I was looking for. Starting in mid-August and ending a week before the con, the outfit was completed and I am VERY proud.
NOTE: The reason why it's only 90% done is because I still plan to add things to the outfit (such as fixing the sleeves and working with the boots). That should be done soon enough.
NOTE 2: The design is actually a MERGE between Amano's design (such as the beads/scarf/jewels/belts) and Advent Children's design (such as the armor, bracelets, boots/sword). I did not just want to stick with one design, so instead I merged 2 designs to create a unique Sephiroth cosplay while still sticking to core designs.
HOPEFULLY that's clear....
Wig: Bought online, styled by me.
Makeup: White eyeliner pencil and light touches of black lipstick.
Coat: Hand made and lined with pleather and black lining fabric. 4 feathers, silver beads, gemstones, felt accents, black beads, black lace, feather-like trim, and silver metal accents were added to the coat.
Gray Scarf: Handmade and accented with black lace, beaded trim, and gemstones.
Black Belt: Handmade and accented with black fringe trim.
Bead belt: Black rope braided with gray yarn, Black bead gatherings were added at the ends of the belt.
Gloves: Bought, then modified with steel bracelets. Bracelets were bought, then painted with silver frost to match the coloring of the armor.
Armor: Handmade from Wonderflex, a total of 8 pieces. All pieces were painted with silver and touches of black to create a metal texture. A drillbit was used to create the holes in the armor at the shoulders. Miniature jewels were added along the edge.
Soldier belt: Handmade from pleather. A piece of Wonderflex was sewed onto the back to make the belt sturdier. The symbol was done on a sewing machine by hand.
Pants: Bought from a store (real leather). Belt for the pants was made by me.
Boots: Bought from Hot Topic. Really comfortable to!
Sword: 2 panels of doorframe wood glued together, then sanded. Covered in Aluminum tape. Gold is painted Wonderflex. The handle is 2 kinds of fabric wrapped together. Charms hanging from it are an earring and beads together.
