So Finally tried to get some decent shots of me as Sorceress Edea from Final Fantasy VIII. Since she only had a VERY brief showing (and incomplete) back in 2016. I still fouled up the make up but it doesn't really show too much in this picture and I'll do a better job of it next time. (FYI this is why I mostly do cosplays that hide my face XD )
Costume made by: Myself

Notes: That back ornament is made from one solid piece of MDF which I cut by hand using various hand saws (Hacksaw, Coping saw etc) and then sanded mostly by hand before blisters forced me to invest in a rotary tool XD... but we finished off with hand sanding. It took months but super happy with it to the point where I will be turning it into a bed headboard when it's not being used for cosplay.
