Holy Dragoon Armor

Final Fantasy IV: The After Years

Last Updated: 04-17-2012

I LOVE KAIN!!!! *O* Omigoshomigoshomigosh.

I no longer can wear this costume anymore.

This armor is all made from cardboard only,..aka.. CERAL BOXES!! 8DDD YAY! yup, cheerios and bran flakes anyone? TEEHEE!~

This took FOREVER to make, I lost count on how many hours I put into this. 8P Since everything I all used was all like, mostly recycled stuff, the cosplay cost me about $32, for EVERYTHING including the wig, which was $25.

One of the hardest parts to make on this costume was the pauldrons. I used 1 cereal box for each one, and had to make the box ROUND. I did that by cutting the box in half, and making it round that way, and luckily with Kain, the 'cut' seam could be hidden by the scales on it. ^_^ Wee!~ But it was still hard to do. xO

The scales took up a LOT of boxes, I was surprised. O___O I cut them all out by hand, there's got to be over 600 scales I cut out and glue on this cosplay.

and the spear was an old shower curtain rod I bought for 25 cents, and build it on with..... more cereal box material lol.

I reallllyyyy love this costume... though it is not the most comfortable thing I've worn. I'M LOOKING AT YOU LEG ARMOR!!!!11 ...But the price was right. 8D

...Funny.... I actually don't really eat cereal myself (though I snack on it dry sometimes) so I rely on the rest of my family to eat 'em up. "ARE YOU ALMOST DONE WITH THIS RAISIN BRAN??? I NEED THE BOX FOR COSPLAY!!! Eat it up please?" Family: *facepalms*
....Suppose I could just steal the box and leave the bag out buuuuut.... Better avoid getting asked more questions lol.
