Final Fantasy VIII
Last Updated: 11-16-2010
I love FFVIII more than anything else, and I was rather disapointed with the fact that I didn't have any FF8 costumes (lol well one of my first was Selphie...but let's not talk about that D:) so LOL HEY I had two bros who wanted to cosplay Seifer and Squall and LOL WHY NOT DO EDEA. 8D
The helmet was fun to work on~ :D I started by putting on a swimmer's cap and then covering my head in that plaster stuff that comes in rolls (lol forgot the name) once that dried I pulled it off my head and covered it in paperclay~ I modeled the spiral and horns in model magic. The circle and fence-shaped bits are made from craftfoam. It's covered in modpodge, acrylic paint and then outdoor-brand gloss lacquer. 8D
The dress was made without a pattern and I made it longer than my feet by a good 5 inches so I could make the triangle hem without showing my feet. ITS A BIT AWKWARD TO WALK IN LOL. There are three different types of feathers I used on the collar and I used a little bit of craftfoam to keep the feather collar "popped" on the shoulder area. There are small cuts in the back of the dress where the window's harness goes in around my shoulders like a backpack. :D
The gold window thing was made from foamboard, craftfoam and small wooden dowels. :D
the gold makeup swirlies were made in a similar way I did on my Seymour costume, I drew out the designs in puffpaint on thin plastic (like a sandwich bag) and then cut out the designs and spirit gummed them to my face. EXCITING, I KNOW. 8D
