You know those styrofoam balls that kids use to make solar systems for school projects or whatever? Get the biggest one you can find and hollow it out, cut out the bottom so it fits your shoulder, then just paint it and add whatever doodas are on it. (It's been a while since I've played FF7, sorry.. ^^; Maybe use elastic around the bottom (going under your upper arm/shoulder) to keep it in place... yeah, that's what I'd do. ^_^ Maybe!

Styrofoam can be tricky, as many types of paint will actually eat away at the material. But if you cover it with something, I think that certainly could work... paper-mache if you're looking for a simple project, fiberglass if you're a little more ambitious.

We made Integral's Tifa armor using paper-mache on a small balloon so it was more rounded. Then we fiberglassed over it (just two thin layers will make it nearly indestructable), put body-filler on to smooth it down, and added the rivets. We just used standard silver-metallic spraypaint, and then Integral put a black wash over it... the black wash makes ALL the difference in the world, and the first thing I said when I saw it was "Man, I wish that Cloud cosplayers would use this!" ^_^

Good luck, hope that helps a bit!

When cutting styrofoam balls, I reccommend a serrated knife, or a saw... just... be careful.. I cut my finger while using a knife on one... boku wa baka da ne...

You know what I just thought of? If you could get your hand's on one of those plastic balls you always see in little playlands and such,the multicolored ones.If you hollowed it out and spraypainted it,it would probably hold well since its plastic and be crazy light..o.o
