I'm planning a cosplay of a male guardian corp member and using the concept art from FF13 as my base. However, I'm also going to be mixing in some features from Amodar's jacket into this costume.. the hard part is going to getting a whole lots of belts and buckles for this..
I was thinking of using Military Canvas as opposed to leather belts, and making the pauldrons out of paper with a reinforcement of bondo... I will post a picture of my notes later
PS: I'm new to this forum and I have a convention coming up in April that I hope to complete this by!
