Final Fantasy IV

Last Updated: 07-27-2012

Making it for a large FFIV group for Otakon 2012 - which I've always wanted to SEE, so the idea of getting to be a part of it as one of my favorite characters ever? I just feel so honored, and am trying to do the best I can. =)

It's on a limited time-frame, though, so the under-armor is just spandex left over from other costumes, and a lot of the fabric used is scrap as well... fortunately I had a good variety of scrap. ;) The "dragon belly" down the front has pockets individually sewn and stuffed for a 3D look, and the beaded tassels on the "buttcape" in the back were beaded by hand, a couple hours of work all on their own. The design on said cape was hand-drawn as well onto blue marbled fabric, and the dark areas colored in.

The armor is mostly craft foam and insulation foam reinforced with fiberglass, gessoed, and sprayed down with automotive spray paint and a satin clear coat finish to make it less reflective, more of a subtle sheen. The helm started out as a bike helmet, with craft foam and papier-mache building it out into the familiar dragon head, and was given the same treatment as above.
