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:!

This may be one of (if not the) best Cloud cosplay I've ever look just like him XD This is so awesome! Great work!

Where did you get the sweater if I may ask?
arlo-arleh's avatar
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! :)
