Fran of the Viera from Final Fantasy XII was my first armor cosplay. I chose her because I wanted to 'level-up' so to speak. I'm absolutely happy how it turned out. I had to do some last minute changes for AnimeExpo, but I'm nonetheless very pleased with myself. The costume took me approximately 6 months to construct. Keep in mind that this was my first 'armored cosplay' in dealing with the subject of high details. The armor is constructed out of your normal 2mm craft foam that could be purchased at any local craft store. The bodice or 'bunny suit' was crafted from pleather that has been boned and lined. The ears are crafted from plastic sheeting covered in craft fur. The wig was a first timer for me too, adding a foam core and hairline to a wig. It was also extremely heavy and has almost 10 clips inside of it to hold up.
