About this Costume
Construction Details:
FINALLY, I have cosplayed Zidane! I have been meaning to cosplay him for years, but was torn between doing him and Garnet. Just recently, I replayed the game and my love for it was renewed twice over, and I decided it had to be Zidane. It took about a month and a half to make the entire thing, which included me making Amarant's costume too (worked on them back and forth). Overall I'm pretty happy with it. With my second wear, I redid my cravat and repainted my boots with a more accurate color. As for my weapon, I went with his Ogre weapon because it is by far the coolest of his weapons, plus I hadn't seen it done yet, so I thought it would be nice to do something different. I made a step-by-step tutorial (sorta) of making my Ogre in my in-progress gallery if you have any questions about the construction. In older photos, it has a bit of a green shine; I painted it with a better blue for my second wear, so it is not so green anymore. :) I also painted the gold parts with a more realistic gold. It's less orange-y now. The dagger I used for the first wear was just a plastic dagger from a costme store I modified. For my second wear, I made the dagger completely from scratch, as you will sort of be able to see in newer photos. It looks way better, lol. I'm so glad I did it. Disclaimers: I did not make my gloves, and I followed Hee-Hee's hairline tutorial for my own wig's hairline. :)
