Regular writing journal I got for $5.99 at Brentanos. Red, kinda rough textured cover. Likely going to paint the cover with the fabric paint I still have from Cid (and I still have alot) once I figure out the design for it...if I can from the Amano painting.

yea i agree with Ironekilz. actually i replied a while back on your question, i'll just copy and paste in case there's any tidbits that can help you :


"hmm what kind of cover is the journal?? i hope it's a hardcover, it'll be easier to paint. i would suggest covering the rest of the book except for the cover in newspaper so the paint doesnt get on the pages. maybe acrylics would be good?? if it has a fabric feel try for fabric paint, and in case you screw up you might want to get a washable type to be on the safe side.

if it's softcover, you can always use a sort of cardboard or oaktag and tape it onto the cover so that it's thicker, and do the same as if it was hardcover. this is a suggestion tho ^_^ so good lucks on it "

Yeah at first when I was playing FFVI, I thought he and Terra would end up together because he saved her first, lol. Yeah that would be fairly easy enough for me knowing my boyfriend's hair is blonde(even though it's darker than Locke's), plus when his hair grow's out, the texture is all fluffy and poof's to the side like locke's, lol. He'd be perfect for Locke. I also had the idea of Esper Terra and thought I'd be the first to do it XD, oh well, but I still want to cosplay Esper Terra as well someday because I thought it would be awsome. Esper Terra will probably be two years later since I'm already up to my neck with next years costumes
wow, you're SO lucky to have a boyfriend who is willing to cosplay with you! for me, that is like a dream come true. it's hard enough for me to even find someone to cosplay with. yeah, i never heard of any esper terras either... i haven't even seen the amano drawings of esper terra. i guess i should search for some. i'm amazed by the esper terra costumes i saw through those links. thanks, snowkirby!

I know a great place that has not only a lot of official images of characters from every FF, but also a lot of information (maps, walkthroughs, music, magic, jobs, weapons, etc.).
Locke
Sabin
Black Mage
White Mage
Those last two aren't patterns, like you wanted, but... you're lucky if you can find a premade one.

On another note... DRAGOON!!! *orgasms* I'm sorry I've loved Dragoons since FFIV (Kain~ 8D~~~~ )

Oh... right... this is the site: FF Compendium

Now excuse me while I look up every job class to see adorable pictures of Tarus <3

I love Dragoons as well, next to Black Mages and Summoners. Oh I'm all for the magic-users, lmao! One of my costumes for next year's conventions is Freya from FFIX, who technically is a Dragoon/Lancer (a Dragon Knight, I think they called them in the game...), but that's not really old-school FF cosplay per-se, but I do pop up little updates for that now and then, though not much is going on...

I've been planning a FFT Lancer forever! But like most everyone else, I want to garner some smithing experience.

As for Black Mages, I'm almost done with a FFT wizard... not sure if that was the type of BM you were looking for, but just use any cloak pattern with a caplet/mantel and collar and alter as needed. It really isn't too difficult a costume; just time consuming. Especially if you do it by hand T_T

I've been meaning to try Amethyst's way of making armor. It would be easy for a FFXI style dragoon, because there are few parts that need to be made. But for Kain... I'm just afraid that it would dent or damage (he has an entire breastplate). If I can go shopping *hasn't gone shopping in a few months and is going insane* I would buy some craft foam and just do it! But... you see my predicament.

EDIT -- I found some robes from Simplicity (it's the only pattern-making company I know the name of) that you could use:
http://simplicity.com/index.cfm?page...59&StartRow=11
5794 = cloaks with hoods
5840 = more cloaks and hoods
9887 = even more, but the one has a point hat for a BLM

You should be able to find these at Fabricland or whatever. If not, you can get them off the site here. I think they'd work perfectly for a WHM and BLM *enjoys using FFXI acronyms*
