The backlog continues~! Tonight is time for classic Final Fantasy X~!Yuna made and worn by: Tidus made and worn by: Photopraphy:
This shoot happened on the shore just behind the Gold Coast Supanova venue in 2012.
did a kickass job getting such nice shots in the 5 minutes that she had with us before we had to run for a train back to Brisbane.
I haven't got much noteworthy details about my costume.
But I do have a story with the Brotherhood:About the sword:
In 2012, Gold Coast Supanova... I met with the Japanese voice actor of Tidus, and he signed the sword for me with a quote from the game.
I made this prop for the remake of my Tidus costume, as a celebration to my 2nd anniversary of costume making.
Hopefully I have improved over the years...

As a step up from 2 years ago when I made this out of wood and relied on a good paint job, this time I decided to challenge myself to go all the way and create a translucent version so I can play with the light.
First I carved 2 casts from a plank of 12mm pine wood, then covered the surface with aluminium foil.
Then I applied a mixture of fibreglass cloth and loose fibreglass strands to achieve the icy pattern effect.
Then I used clear casting/embedding resin on the fibreglass. The name of the resin is kind of self explanatory, but it ensures that the sword sets clear.
After 2 days of painful fibreglassing and resin-ing and waiting for things to set...I was able to detail the sword with sculpey oven dry clay.
I actually decided to buy all the accurate colours of clay and make each detail one after another as they are added onto each other.
Finally, it was finished with Tamiya clear blue spray paint, (oh the gift of god), wrap the handle in traditional Japanese style, and tie the red material to the tip.
Weapon was completed in 4 days.
Overall cost of materials: $240
This is my first ever full fibreglass weapon and I'm quite...extremely proud of how it turned out.
