Final Fantasy XIII

So, I always thought those people that finish their costumes at the con were psychotic and needed help, but now I get where they're coming from.
This costume took 49 days to make, but it was worth every bit of it. I probably could have been done sooner, but I had work 4 days a week and after work I was always too tired to do much. Wound up having to stay up all night into the Friday morning of Otakon, finishing the collar and attaching it to the shirt. Fun times. -.-

Anyway, I got coerced into being Lieut. Col. Nabaat by my sister, way back in January because she decided she loves Lightning and we all needed to do another family cosplay. Plus, I've got the long blonde hair, so I didn't need a wig, and didn't need to dye my hair(that would never happen even for a million bucks). I hate wigs, so I was like, yeah, sign me up! ..I thought this would be easy... DX

All the shiny parts, such as my belt, the chains, the weirdo hangy thing that goes over Jihl's skirt, and the trim on my shoes and weapon are sheet metal. I've worked with it before of course, but this time was INSANE. Got cut soooo much, lol.

Oh and the shoulder armor, both of them glow. My coat would have too, but I ordered the pieces separately like a dumbass and the light for the bottom of my coat didn't come in time.
Oh well there's always NYAF.

If anyone has any questions as to how I did something, please ask! I'd so love to help fellow cosplayers!
