My Monk from FFXIV and one of my most comfy costumes I‘ve ever made! I worked for around two months on this costume and tried to combine fabric work and armor making for this project. After searching a long time for the right fabric, Benni actually found some perfectly fitting curtain material. He also made the embroidery and helped me painting everything! So happy to have so much support from him! Do you also craft with your friends or partners? I personally enjoy working with someone else the most in cosplay! :) #cosplay#costume#ffxivcosplay#ffxivcommunity#finalfantasycosplay#finalfantasycosplayer#evafoam#evafoamarmor#ffxiv
First little test fit of the upper half. Few things have to be adjusted but not too bad. Figuring out sliding inner elbow pieces to cover those holes eventually. Almost half constructed. Nice busting out a smaller project pretty quick.
HRX was amazing as always. This year the team organized a red carpet that really allowed them to showcase the costumes and let creators talk more about their work in depth. It also eliminates the waiting period for people in costume where In the past cosplayers would go on stage in between games, not knowing how long that might be. This year was so much fun to be a part of the contest and to compete against so many talented creators. Everyone looked fantastic and I am so happy to have been able to be a part of this. Thank you to HRX for taking care of everyone and for providing a green room area with changing rooms and places to sit and literally charge. Thanks to the video and photography teams who document everything and make us all look super cool, and thanks to @hirezstudios for having created a games with such awesome character designs that inspire us all to put so much time and effort and passion into our art.
