Cid Highwind

Final Fantasy VII

Last Updated: 01-23-2010

Cid is one of my favorite game characters of all time, and FFVII is one of my favorite games, so of course I want to cosplay as this guy. After some minor discouragement, seeing some awesome crossplays on this site (mainly Sipesh's Cid) convinced me to go ahead with this and cosplay a manly man even though I'm a short teenage girl.

Also, this is the in-game version, not the Advent Children version. Not many people do this version, and even fewer people put -ahem- much effort into it. I'm really proud of how this turned out!

-Wig is a Roni in 24B - Butterscotch Blonde
-Goggles were bought from an army surplus store and painted light brown then dark brown (stupid paint colors)
-Scarf from some Amazon store
-Gloves from an eBay store that sells motorcycle stuff
-Plain dark red shirt from Target
-OD green BDU pants from army surplus store (also my Sniper Wolf pants)
-Jacket made from scratch with denim, patches messily made by me as well (I don't have an applique stitch, so I sort of improvised with a too-small button-hole stitch), buckles bought online
-Boots from army surplus store and painted brown (they did NOT want to be painted, it took some combining of different paints and several coats to take)
- Spear was a wooden pole wrapped in tape with a cardboard spearhead, nothing special there
