Hey there.
Just stumbled over this thread suddenly. Never knew there was one for the FF classic games. I don't know much about I - V but I'm a great fan of FF VI and already chose to cosplay Celes back in 2009 (although only playstation intro version and well... wasn't as skilled as today back then). Currently I happen to be part of a FF VI cosplay group planned for a con in late July and going to cosplay Locke if I can decide on a particular design.
As already discussed here it isn't an easy choice although I already took a look at quite some fanarts, cosplays, the Amano artworks and have the sprite in mind as well of course. Maybe I just have to go out and look what I find regarding patterns and decorations. But I'll try my best and I believe Seifer-sama is right that
"it takes a while to really decide what you want to use and what you want to ignore, but the result is usually a unique costume that still looks like its original design".
It's quite something different from other cosplays I am used to and also an interesting challenge, not to say FF VI cosplays are unfortunately very very rare here in Germany (except for Dissidia Terra and Kefka).

@ Tifaia: Hi!!!! And bye!!!!

@ MetalArtisan: Oooh awesome! Looking forward to seeing it remade!

@ MissLunatic: Hello and welcome!! It's always nice to have old school FF fans. That's awesome that you have already done Celes and you are not working on a Locke. Do you have a pretty good idea of what design you want to go with? Let me know if you need some references too, I have a few saved. I do think sometimes it's nice to keep an open mind and see what you can find. Sometimes the coolest things will pop out at with you and you can just run with it and make something totally amazing. Either way, good luck to you! I am looking forward to seeing your progress.

Even though I found some great fabric for Rosa, I think I may hold off on her a little longer so I can get her the skill she needs to look good.. but in the meantime, I'm debating on the sprite version of Celes. I always thought her outfit was cool and I love the way people "Amano" style it. I may do that, so I have more freedom. :3

@ Zaiten: Oooh sprite Celes would be awesome!!! Especially if you Amano it up. I think that would be a great project. Good luck!

@Seifer-Sama:
Many thanks for the warm welcome.
Unfortunately not really up till now. But I don’t want to go with the real Amano design e.g. for make up reasons. I don’t like this blue/black lipstick stuff in his case (although I have to admit some cosplayers did well regarding this). Most likely the cosplay will become a mix and only be inspired by Amano and other cosplays and references. So any reference might be a great help. (I’m even still thinking about the actual hair colour although atm I’m rather thinking about a very light blond rather than silver.)
Might take a while though till I’m actually able to start to work on it since I’ve still got other cosplays to finish beforehand. But I'm looking forward to it a lot.
Thanks again. This is really encouraging.

@ MissLunatic: Sounds great! Honestly I was never a fan of the blue lipstick, but like you said, some people have pulled it off really well and actually made it look pretty cool!! As for references, this is the easiest way to get you what I have and I hope it works: http://pinterest.com/seifersama/fina...sy-vi-artwork/ This is my Pintrest page and I have a TON of FF6 things in there (mostly Terra) but there is some Locke stuff. I really hope you will find it useful. And you are welcome! We need more FF6 cosplayers.

Seifer-sama: Wow! Awesome collection there. I am trying to decide who to do next from 6, I'll have to keep your link on hand for some reference. Kinda leaning towards Locke or Setzer this time since the only girl I haven't done is Relm and I don't care for her.

Loveable-Eve: OK, sorry about totally off topic... but your icon is Epros right?? Good lord I love that game.

MissLunatic: I am so in agreement on the lipstick! I think you can come up with something lovely using the colors you like best that will still be very identifiable as Locke. Personally I'm not a fan of the zebra stripes in a lot of Amano art so I wouldn't use that either. It's fun coming up with whatever works best for you.

Zaiten: Yes! You should do Celes! (for Akon of course :P) Sprite Celes is a ton of fun, there's so much you can do with the outfit.

Celes for A-kon it is. :3 But you totally have to do Locke so we can get pictures! (That's my vote for Locke, hehe. He was one of my favorites. Something about cheeky thieves.)

I'd totally post more updates, but.. long night at work, so just popping in quick for tonight.

Jumping in on the dark lip-color discussion. I'm in agreement that it only really works on certain cosplays. However, I'm planning on trying this with my Celes using a dark blue or purple. I think with my skin-tone and the contrasting colors of the costume it'll really pop. So we'll see! And if it sucks, then it sucks. Wipe it off, slap on the lip gloss, and I'm done. lol

This was my inspiration for some of the outfit designs so I want to try it out: http://generalkutan.deviantart.com/a...es-2-304030801

@Zaiten: There are going to be 3 of us running around at A-Kon. XD And you keep changing things up! *bonks on the head* lol

I always change things up, it's funny, I get antsy and like to change my cosplays during the day, at least once. So I like to have options. I'm still bringing my Aerith and Tifa though, so I'll probably wear one of them for things like photoshoots so we arn't all the same. :3 Even if VI needs more love.
