Chocobo Knight by utenafangirl Chocobo Knight by utenafangirl
Well this is my attempt to enter a contest (of course something Lightning related)...tried to think of something unique and not something people will over use. Then I thought of Odin and wanted to do his armor but I remember him being a chocobo in Lightning Returns so thus the Chocobo Knight was born (least in my head). Took about 3-4 days sketching out what I wanted and at first a knight be like full of metal plates but I decided for more mobility so a leather combination mixed in. Also since this is a customization contest I decided to throw in that you can change colors on this (i'm a black n white or black n red) examples on the bottom. Though I thought black and having gold running down it to make it look like lightning...*shurgs*

The main thing I wanted to show is the chocobo icon like everywhere. The helmet and shoulder guard is both a chocobo head while I made the feet like feet 8D and what better way to have a cape of feathers...its just fluffy. I didn't want to stray too far from the original FFXIII because I liked that outfit but yeah helmet is optional

Aw... There was a Lightning Returns costume making contest? I wish I could've made an entry. :cries:

This one looks great! Reminds me of Warrior of Light's costume - especially the helmet.

nice one! it's great you went for mobility instead of plate, I love how you made this look. keeping aspects from original look make it so much more Lightning than the strange tea party coats and bikini and stuff people make her wear... nah I only like two designs so far and they are both light armor - yes, one of them is this.
the chocobo icons and feathers are awesome.

:iconblushplz: aww thank you! I knew people are going to go crazy with em outfits (and I do have a love, hate, and envy relation with all the other entry i saw)...and first and for most thought I had was I wanted her to have pants...just give her something to cover those gorgeous legs for once...and no boobage I mean really is it hard to ask for functional armor that doesn't need to show THAT much skin in places THAT are vital aka stomach~ and last...make it look good '_' LR made me sad on 80% of costumes because most just doesn't suit her *sighs*

=D I love drawing feathers when I put my mind to it  and thanks again
