Amano cosplay

Everyone knows that Amano's original designs got butchered and warped when they were digitized into the FF games. So does anyone else here plan on cosplaying his original designs of the FF characters (even his designs of Nomura's) true to his original paintings? They offer a whole lotta room for creativity

I wouldn't say they were necessarily "butchered", per se, but the wispy, ethereal aspect of his artwork simply doesn't translate well into polygons.

That being said, there are actually a number of Amano-style cosplayers out there already. I've done Relm, personally.

oooh very nice ^_^
I love the pose!

I've seen a few, one standing out would be a Locke cosplayer I've seen many photos of.

Well... butchered in FFIX

Whoa.. that is such a good idea. I love Amanos designs, but I never thought of trying to pull of an Amano costume. I wonder how that would work out... It would certainly simplify Aeris's costume... Sephi's too. It would be especially interesting if someone was going to try out a FFIX Amano costumes. Especially Vivi with all the little intricacies of the drawing and such. I think it would look quite lovely. ^_^

I thought about doing Relm. (Thought? Well I am.) But so far I've really only bought the stuff for it and I havent had the motivation to actually start putting it all together So as for that I don't even know when I'll have it ready..some time this year I hope! But I donno.

Yuna: You're doing more?! Weeelll I still hope we all get to see your Rydia again thrown into the mix of the Amano crazyness.

I have hopes to do an Amano Locke some time in the future, but right now my palate is full.

My Terra was very slightly, vaguely Amano-ish. I was trying to go more for the PSX renderings, and I kinda butchered it into a -- weird version. Heh.

Who I really want to do Amano-style is Edward from FFIV. I'm growing frustrated that I can't find one decent pic of him. I've got one that's teeny-tiny, and it's not helping! >.<

I love the design Amano did for Garland on the cover of the first FF game. There's only one pic of him, but I hope to try that costume sometime soon ^_^

Yeah, I know Chrissy :P Bask in the greatness of my wonderful... bracelets.

Dia and Nessa, I commend you both on your excellent Relm and Rydia. I can see how much work went into making them unique and elegant, and still remaining true to the original designs.

As for AX, I'm keeping my fingers crossed for everyone. If Celes gets done earlier, I might debut her at AnimeNext or AMA4.
