Final Fantasy VII: Advent Children Cloud Strife Help

Post by PhantomThief » Sat Mar 26, 2005 7:20 pm

I'm going to work on a costume for Cloud Strife from Advent Children. I have most of it planned out, I just need help or tips on the Emblem he has on his left shoulder. Any help would be appreciated.

It's a lion head...
buy one from a hardware store from the "Door knocker" section...
...Easiest emblem I've seen in a long time.

Aren't doorknockers a bit too heavy and large for a costume? O.o, why don't you try molding one from celluclay or sculpy and then adding it on? Much lighter...

Well thanks for just helping out, I'll go out and check out the doorknocker idea and see if there's anythign I can work with. If not I'll go for molding one.

$20?! That's insane!

Sculpy around here costs like $6 and it's so easy!
