Hey, Im planning on going to some kind of Con later in the year, but Ive never been to one before and Ive never cosplayed before, so Im pretty inexperienced. Im trying to cosplay a Soldier 3rd Class from Final Fantasy 7.
I already have a sleeveless ribbed turtleneck sweater, although its a darker shade of navy than Id like.
But thats all I have so far. Im trying to buy pretty much everything I can instead of sewing stuff, because sewing makes me want to murder myself. Im willing to make minor modifications though.
So Im lost as to what I should do for the pants and big belt with suspenders.
I figure I can find some combat boots. I dont care if those derive a little from the original.
Unfortunately, Ill probably have to make the pauldrons myself, but I work at a place that throws away metals like its their job, so I can probably do that.
And Im NOT planning on doing the helmet, unless I can easily get my hands on one.
SO! Any ideas for any of this guys? I appreciate it.
