Cosplayer Chiko > Costume of Jihl Nabaat from Final Fantasy XIII
About this Costume
- Construction Details:
- The jacket is made from scratch out of pleather, stretch cotton, and silver vinyl. I hand made all the piping on the bottom hem and hand painted all the details with metallic fabric paint. The shirt was made from stretch cotton. I drafted patterns for the collar myself and iron interfacing on everything to keep it stiff. I wish I ordered EL wire in time to finish the shoulder armor :(
- Personal Thoughts:
- Leonard convinced me to make this costume after showing me the sexy FFXIII artbook and after I started on it I realized I hated it. We then tried to shoot together for almost a year until Acen 2011! I'm not happy with how unrefined and rough the costume is but I have no will to remake it.
