The Official Legend of Dragoon Cosplay Thread

Alright, well there are 2-3 LOD threads floating around about specific characters so I decided to consolidate it into one thread after asking people if they'd keep the thread alive.

In March I will be going to Sakuracon as Shana and my boyfriend will be going as Dart. As far as progress goes all I have to do is add the blue trim to Shana's top and then make the armor and weapons. Dart's pretty much at the same place, since I wanted to make all the armor at one time.

If anyone has any questions feel free to ask and in a few days I should have links to photos of Dart and Shana's clothes.

I can't find the other LOD thread I just posted in. I'll just repost it here and delete the other one later.

What material are you using for the white of Shana's outfit? I like using cotton but does her tunic/dress thing has more of a texture to it.

I'm also using cotton, but it's more of a cotton twill like you'd use for pants. At first I was only going to use it for the shorts, but then the fabric looked perfect for the top as well and I had enough extra for it.

Also, I found the perfect fabric for the trim to be microfiber. It's not exactly cheap and it's a pain to work with (slippery) but it looks amazing.

I'll try to get some photos up of Shana's clothes here in a few days. The shorts are done but I still have to add the trim to the top and I've been sick. :x

I can't wait to see your progress. Shana just seems like it will be a comfortable cosplay. My current cosplays have always winded up being easy to function in. I guess mostly because I go for the modest, cute types. I have a feeling this one will be so light and comfy.

Is it just me or did anyone really just dislike Miranda? I don't know just something about her irked me a lot.

But now...I'm half tempted to make this my third-possible cosplay for katsucon. I haven't even started on the other two! lol. Oh man...I wonder if I could get it done in time. I've got to pace myself.

Yeah, I didn't really like Miranda either. >.>

Shana is a comfortable costume if you can figure out how to do the armor in a way that you dont have to keep adjusting it for one reason or another. That's why it took me so long to figure out a way to do the armor so it still looked good and I could get it on.

Good plan though, it always sucks when you start more then you can finish. The longest part about Shana is the armor and letting the coats of glue dry and repeating it multiple times. The clothes are pretty simple though, unles you start durring the winter and have to make the top without a pattern *shakes fits at JoAnns*

Edit: I posted in the other LOD threads I could find and asked the mods to delete them and linked to this forum for other cosplayers.

I am so tempted to make my SO play Lloyd. If they had more screencaps another feat for someone doing armor would be Shirley or Dragoon Shana. The armor on one arm alone looks troubling.

They have more high res photos of Shana in dragoon form then in her normal clothes. (which just made my job harder) I think there are a few of Shirley floating around from the in game movie on disk 2. The armor does look scary, but I'd still love to do it someday.

You should make your SO play Lloyd, that would be awesome. We have someone on the Kumoricon forums who will probably be coming to Sakuracon as well and he's cosplaying as Lloyd for both cons. Dart, Shana, and Lloyd = interesting photos.

I really liked Miranda as a character... she was strong, but she knew she wasn't perfect. She was probably one of the girl characters I used most. (Shana didn't pack as much power into her bow for me that Miranda did either.)

Good luck you guys with your LoD cosplays! Sometimes it's hard working from a fandom that's so unknown. ^^ But it's totally worth it in the end.

Yeah not only is it not known as most games, but it's going to be 8 years old here pretty soon. (Not like FF7 isnt older, but still..) I've always loved LOD and since I've started talking about it a lot of people in my area have put cosplaying from it in their lists for late 2008 to 2009. I really hope they wont give up on their costumes. Two of them are doing Dragoon Dart and Lloyd 0.0

You are so lucky to have two other LoD cosplayers with you. Are you going to do the props for them too?

I don't personally know the Lloyd, but he is going to have his dragon buster and possibly the cloak from disk 1. Dart is going to have his sword. I will have Shana's bow and quiver (not sure how I'm doing the bow yet) and I've already made the dragoon spirits. Spheres are hard to paint. : /

%*!^

Anyway...for some odd reason Dart's top doesn't want to turn black. I've dyed it twice now with Rit and after all of that it's only light grey. Dart comes over to work on our costumes in 4 days and I dont want to have to waste time going to find another top before we can work on the armor.

Any suggestions?

That situation may call for just altering an already made shirt. I did that and found it worked just as good as anything else. I don't remeber the color of his shirt...is it black under the armor?

edited: actually skimming screenshots I think you may get away with a normal black tee or even turtle neck? I know the collar looks slightly raised. It shouldn't show if you're doing his red chestplate.

Yeah the shirt is black. The shirt we got was perfect for it. The top is essentially a black turtleneck without the sleeves. I modded a white one since there were no black ones and it doesnt want to dye.

I did that for my bf's cosplay. We did it last minute. If you can't find a black turtle neck retail I'd try going to the second hand stores. If that doesn't work I'd take a sleeveless black shirt and take out the old collar (what little thats in there) and sew in a new one. I did that for my Rena Lanford cosplay.
