Cosplayer Imari Yumiki > Costume of Seifer Almasy from Final Fantasy VIII
About this Costume
- Construction Details:
- Oh haha, Seifer is not a hard costume but to have everything even and equal was time consuming. The coat was made with a beautiful color fabric which was only $3 a yard (whyilovesocal). Lined it to thicken the jacket, collar and cuffs lines was all sewn by me. I only messed up twice which had to redo, those straight lines forever. (*^*); The Jacket combines parts of hand sewing and machine and I have no love for the pockets. >.> Vest is also lined and sewn together by me. Made the choker out of craft foam and the silver part on my boots are craft foam too. Pants, Belt and Gloves were things I already own.
After a few years later, Wayne made Seifer's Hyperion gunblade and I got to take photos with it! (*-*) Hopefully I will get more time to shoot with it next time. Was too busy at OV.
- Personal Thoughts:
- Seifer is one of my most favorite characters out of Final Fantasy franchise. Ever since the game was out, I have always said to myself I can't pull off a cosplay of him (even though I wanted to). But I gave it a try and it isn't as bad as I thought. Gogo with all the manly challenges I give to myself haha 83;;
- Styling Notes
- Hair pins, hairspray (lots of it), pick brush and wig head. I left it over night to dry in place. Flat wig = Slit back hair, oh yeah. :D
