Cosplayer DarkVyse88 > Costume of Squall Leonheart from Final Fantasy VIII
About this Costume
- Construction Details:
- The jacket, belts, and boots were bought and made by Serephita. The wig was bought from Kingdom Arts and styled by Serephita. The necklace Serephita owned. The gunblade was made by zack-soildier-1st class on Deviantart. The shirt and pants were bought by me.
- Extra Costume Details by Serephita
- Jacket was made out of some weird pleather stuff I've had sitting in my bin for forever (using the same pattern I used for the SMS jacket), and the fur on the collar was given to me by VintageAerith. Belts were painted and put together (hammered the studs on!) by me. Shoes were a lucky find at a thrift store.
- Personal Thoughts:
- This was a planned Otakon cosplay planned by Serephita, who went as Rinoa. Never having cosplayed a Final Fantasy character, I jumped into it. It was quite a fun experience. The costume was great and we even got to have our own photoshoot with one of our friends as Selphie. It has now become, along with Death the Kid, as a top cosplay for me.
