FFvXIII - Noctis Lucis Caelum

By
Final Fantasy versus XIII, Noctis Lucis Caelum (storm) cosplay.

Noctis + post processing - :iconamenokitarou:
Photo taken by :iconbeethy:

I swear to maccas that this is THE LAST Noctis shoot I will ever have....

....

....until the game comes out and :iconmiyukiko: makes her sword.... :D :D :D :D

This character has really grown onto me and I've just gotten so fond of this costume and the wig and weapon and everything about it...now I'm actually interested to play the game....ah the power of a costume...


Useful information:

The Shot: This is one of my favorite shots of the day! Finally I have a shot that I would properly name with the full name of the character.
The slave flash really made the sword go SCHWING.....

This shot somehow looks like a brochure for a tourist attraction...."come visit Sydney...Noctis is waiting..."

In fact....there were quite a few tourists who turned up at the church in their little mini bus, then started taking pictures of me instead of the church.....OTL roflol.

Costume: My previous costume wasn't correct to my size and I wasn't completely happy weith the material, so I decided to remake this from scratch.
The base material is soft pleather. The wavy flame pattern is black matte vinyl sewn on and then secured by liquid super glue. (lol superglue) Completed in 2 days. *faints*

Pouches: the pouches I had previously were floppy and fail. This time I used the matte balck plastic fabric for the pouches and attached them with buckles and belt. Completed in 2 hours.

Weapon: this is the same weapon as before. Made from pine wood as a base, with modelling clay DAS for some details and carving, toilet pipes, drink bottles, Go pieces.... etc. Completed in 10 days.

Wig: again, different from previous. This time round, I bought a matte white wig from a local store and hand coloured it into silvery grey colour with graphite sticks. Completed in 5 hours.
I absolutely ADORE this wig...it changes colour depending on what light I'm in....just like Noct's hair does in various trailers *____*


In the end, this remake turned out nearly perfect to the image in my head and I'm so proud of the work that I did in a mere two days. It really feels like I've levelled up since the beginning of this year. *tear drops*

Hope my little spew on the costume parts helped anyone who is interested in making Noctis for themselves too!



Hope you guys like ^^
