FFVII AC - Cloud Strife by AmenoKitarou FFVII AC - Cloud Strife by AmenoKitarou
Final Fantasy VII: Advent Children, Cloud Strife cosplay

Cloud Strife + post processing - :iconamenokitarou:
Photography - :iconankishinzoutu:

The shot: Finally it's the character profile shot~
This is the last shot in this collection, until I receive the ONE FINAL SHOT that I'm waiting for from one of the photographers.

Now....This pose is a tribute to the cover art of most useless game info magazine ever released: [link]
=D
Taken at Cockatoo Island, in front of one of the heavy machinery dumps.
Post processing included desaturating yellows and reds to make it look like that magazine cover.

Costume (Cloud): Knitted vest was bought and altered to fit.
The sleeves, belts and skirt are made from a raggy, square grain material which I found at a local martial arts gear fabric store. Similar things can be found in spotlight but more expensive. All belts and sleeves and skirt are finished off with white top stitching.

Shoulder guard: Shoulder pad was shaped with foam, then covered with pleather. Then the double lines of white top stitching were hand sewn onto the edges.

Wolf head ornament: Shaped and sculpted from Sculpey (oven dry clay). sanded to finish, and then painted for extra metallic shine.
Here for more info: [link]

Buckles: were also handmade by me, because the available buckles in stores within 30 km radius of my area all didn't satisfy me..... T_T

Enjoy ^^

:( I don't know if it's because i don't like Cloud(AC) very much... But this Cosplay wasn't that great compared to you others :(

Maybe's the Wig... (His hair is a pain in the ass to work on i suppose >.<)

Probably because of the wig and the fact that I rushed the costume out in 3 days or so.
Although I quite like my own Cloud haha! He does fall apart a bit... so it's a bit temperamental :XD:

Thanks so much. You're very kind :)

The rib knit shirt I have for Cloud is altered from a long sleeves one with no zip. I cut the sleeves off and hemmed the edges back together, and cut it in half down the center to insert the zipper myself.

Oh, I was just teasing you. Sorry ^^; Not everyone likes Aerith as much as I do, so it makes sense when they don't include her ribbon.

AmenoKitarou Featured By Owner Jan 26, 2011  Hobbyist General Artist
hahaha i love Aeris though lol
But actually Cloud wears his Aeris ribbon on the arm that's covered by the sleeve~ so probably makes more sense that you can't see it lolol~!
