I'm TRYING to attempt an Emperor cosplay (as evidenced by the other thread) and i'm diving head first into it.

Its just everytime I play the game I stare at the Emperor's in game model and in my head its "I have to make this, I have to make this, MAKE IT MAKE IT"

Any suggestions? I'm totally clueless about the whole thing.

I need the input D:

Why don't they ever release an Amano or Dissidia Rufus. ; ~ ; I would cosplay that in a heartbeat.

I'm making Emperor of Palamecia for a Dissidia group skit here in Spain.

I'm absolutely excited about it, because it's my greatest project of this year.

Me too, I'm doing it later down the road though as I have a few others to finish. His costume borderlines Saint Seiya costumes but I do have a link I stumbled onto, where this lady did a costume that I swear is Emperor but with different hair color and style of clothing, allow me to find it.

@ Lady Muramasa

What are your ideas about the costume so far? I plan on making it for this year's Otakon (in July)

I already have some plans down, I just need to get some monies to start it.

Rufus wasn't a main character or villain in Final Fantasy. Hence, he's not in the game.

^ Shantotto is not a random taru, she's one of the most popular characters in FFXI and is a prominent character in multiple storylines.

; ~ ; Damn! You weren't supposed to know that. *shrug* My point is they could atleast give him a graphic overhual as well. I mean HELL! He doesn't have Amano art. *shrug* guess I'll just have to do Kefka or one of the heroes.

Well I was thinking of the type of fabric it was going to take. Def. some kind of stretch material like spandex sewed in a bodysuit style (unless you can find a full body suit). Then airbrushing the areas were it is yellow on his arms, black and white on his chest area, then purple on his legs. For his thighs and shoes wonderflex or craft foam for the odd shapes, and for the skulls probably carve it out of foam then cover it with a couple of layers of modge podge or that other *insert name I forgot* glue/adhesive that's like it but more flexible. Sand it real nice then spray it yellow or gold. The shoulder part of his cape is sort of tricky, possibly lion board or even foam. I know the big foam blocks can be pricey at times. That's just my few notes I have scribbled down.

Ahhhh I see...

We had similiar ideas as well. Instead of going with the full body suit, me and my cousin advised into getting Underarmour, it looks almost like what the Emperor is wearing, and since were making the main body piece out of Wonderflex we thought that would be the best approach. So wearing that underneath and then making the mid-arm pieces out of fosshape and then attatching them to the underarmour by sewing. And then just get purple tights for the bottom.

http://www.underarmour.com/shop/us/e...ve/1000032-710


For shoes we found these shoes that might work well as a base:

(Currently out of stock T_T)

And then dye them the right color with this:

http://www.cosplaysupplies.com/store...=KA-DYE&s=N1MR

But were not actually sure if the dye would work :S

Other than that we pretty much have the same ideas *_*

Were also confused about the Cape/Shoulder convergence points, as in how to get the cape attatched with the bat ear shoulders (as I now call them) we were going to use wonderflex. But I'm pretty sure we'll figure something out when we get there.

And also if you have the game it is a GODSEND for reference points. The in-game video editor lets you freeze a battle at any time and zoom in at the right angles to get take screenshots of a character, I was able to see things more clearly like his back (theres a design there too) and what his belt looks like.

So if you need some pictures, hit me up~!

Wow, sounds like you are off, to a wonderful start! I saw someone use all fabric for the "bat wing" cape, I didn't really like it that much. Wonderflex sounds better.

Wow, I thought this was lost! It's still remains!? Good.
Well after months of catching up to do all I have to say is......DAMN EMPEROR MATEUS!!!!!
It's already driving me nuts working on his costume! He has all these skulls on him!
Anyone one else doing okay? Or being driven nuts?
