I agree the 'wig' is the most important part of any cosplay. I actually really prefer natural hair in most cosplays (Of course sometimes thats just impossible) The examples you have given (not sure if it was intentional), I don't think give the best examples of Cloud's hair. I prefer these personally.the most important thing about cloud cosplay is the wig, sometims even if you get a nice costume, but the "wig" will ruin everything.....
spend more time to style your cloud wig, you will get much better cloud cosplay~~
People who should just give up? You don't become a master cosplayer over night. Everyone starts from somewhere and unless you have help, your first few cosplays are most likely are going to bomb. Most the cosplayers I knew starting out are AMAZING now when they may have looked as dreadful as I when I started out. Some were a bit overweight, some had "closet cosplay" (cosplay made from random stuff in closet last minute), horrid wigs, or off color designs. Since then I have known that cosplay alone made them maintain their body better and/or they learned how to style a wig or to sew properly since then. Sometimes it's just a deal of having a bigger budget. Not everyone can afford to throw $200 on a perfectly detailed cosplay to make.Hawt Daym, some of those were absolutely aweful, the Second Rikku in the FFX bit was just wrong, the songstress Yuna was really good, (the first one with the microphone anyway) from what i could see she was really good anyhow, the same with the first Sephiroth.
as with all Cosplay's you get some really good ones, and then some really amazing ones, but there always seem to bee an over abundance of people who should just give up as they are useless with Cosplay, now, i don't cosplay because i am not very artistic at all, so i don't claim to know how difficult it is to make a realistic looking cosplay outfit, but there are some people who make great ones, and some who don't have very good ones that just look stupid.
that rinoa and squall one gets the award for best ff cosplay. their clothes material is perf. the lightning one is amazing though i cant see one thing off with it
Okay, besides their hair and their "weight"... the Yuna and Lulu cosplay are really amazing. Look at the detail in the attire... they're amazing. They actually look like real versions of their clothes. They are definitely talented at designing clothes and I think that deserves "good" rating for their cosplay. Just because they're not skinny or something doesn't mean they cosplayed badly. In this instance they did it really really good. :CThe Good:
That's awesome what a great idea. Still recognisable as well.'ello everyone! I have a photo to share from this year's AnimeNext. Pretty awesome group of cross-players.
Usually seeing FF cosplayers every year at every convention gets a little bland, but they kinda spiced things up by cross-playing.
What do you think? ^^
In order from left to right: Vincent, Cloud, Tifa, Jecht, Lightning, Quistis.
P.S. Sorry for the blurriness. Usually my new phone takes great photos, but I kinda rushed in at the last minute to take the shot, lol.
