Costume + Edit by me

Whew! Been meaning to upload this one for ages. One of many shots that were taken at an all-day photoshoot. First time for me in a studio too :)

I was mainly curious to do this costume because I wanted to have a go at styling Cloud's ridiculous hair. First styling of the wig went horribly wrong. Second styling got better, but I'm still not satisfied with it *dies*

Oh well, now that I've done it I have no desire to do it ever again! And I will never laugh at another Cloud cosplayer's LOL!wig any more, as I have been there and I KNOW YOUR PAIN D:

The other Lovely People involved in this shoot:

:iconalita-b-angel: as Sephiroth
:iconarlo-arleh: as Cloud Strife
:iconathira80: as Aeris Gainsborough
:iconechoing-artemis: as Yuffie Kisaragi
:iconqueencattabby: as Reno
Vlad as Rufus Shinra

My second upload for Dev-A-Day Challenge. Now, to you :iconqueencattabby:!

Where did you get the sweater if I may ask?

I had to search around, it took many adventures to thrift stores (about 10) but I finally found one I liked :)

This has inspired me to continue with my cosplay. (The sweater was a pain to find.)

Nonetheless, you make an amazing Cloud! :D

What sweater did you find? I've seen so many expensive ones, and ones that just don't have the correct style.

that's a really good wig and costume, mind i ask what wig you used as a base? And did you make your cloud cosplay?

Thanks! I used a blonde rock-star shag type of wig that I bargained for at Paddy's (in Sydney) but you can prob find similar ones online, they're the same ones that a lot of people use for Jared cosplay from The Labyrinth. It had crimping at the base of the hair strands that made it stand up more so than a normal wig. But I also sewed in extra wefts. For more info on costume and wig see LJ post here: [link]

Thank you! :)
