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

The weapon has finally been shot!!!

Cloud Strife + post processing - :iconamenokitarou:
Photography - :iconk-chan009: Sooo much love for youuu <333

The shot: Taken outside :iconcescat: epic work place. Stormy overcast made everything look Advent Children.
Post procressing included desturating the photo slightly, downing the contrast slightly, and burning some places for more defined shadows. blah~

Useful Info:

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


Weapon: Built entirely of Foam core boards, with a wooden core in the centre sword to support everything else. The sword can be disassembled into the 6 separate blades. The centre sword, can open and close in and out of the battle mode. These are done by making wooden pegs inside the centre blade.
Everything is pretty simple about the making of this weapon since it was quite the rush job. Most techniques utilized can be found performed at most primary school art classes.

Enjoy ^^

I just had a heart attack...
It's rare for a photo to steal my breath, but this one not only did that but it also made my heart skip a beat
Hope that doesn't sound weird...
