Oh man, where do I start with this costume? x_x Call me a moron for wanting to do my first ever armor project and make this thing. I never worked with any armor before, aside from leather pieces for Pit, so this costume turned my world upside down and beat me up a bit, but was it ever a great learning experience! I absolutely love Griffith, mostly from his Band of the Hawk era, so this costume was a dream of mine and kept me motivated even at those times when I started crying over how difficult some of these pieces were...especially that chest plate. I had so much malice for it, but in the end it came out really good so the hatred for it has passed, lol.
Pictured here with my Charlotte, my friend Dom (Termari of Suna) who was amazing and volunteered to cosplay her for me, I am forever in her debt for that.
No more armor from me for a while. I say that now, but I have Count Waltz leg armor to work on soon enough, and that's pretty much showing how much I punish myself for the things I love. XD
Details on costume construction are included in the Costume section for this costume. I still need to update it a bit more with how this costume was made. As hard as it is to move in, it's become one of my favorites and I will certainly be making a few minor improvements and wearing it again.
Wonderful photography by Mab, who made my armor photograph so beautifully, hehe.
This costume also won Best in Show at MetroCon, shock of my life, with the rest of our group (my Charlotte, Negativedreamer as Skullknight, and my boyfriend as Guts).

Hime, you did it! And it came out amazingly!
I loved seeing you all, and my inner Griffith Fangirl had a heart attack. I hope to see this again someday! ^.^

Ah, this is such a great photo!!! I had a hard time standing like that, too! It's hard to imagine someone shorter than me. XD
Your Griffith is so hot right now.
