Cloud Strife by Malindachan Cloud Strife by Malindachan
Friday morning of Katsu, a photographer pulled us aside for some photos. When he showed us what he got on camera I was blown away, and then I about fanspazzed after he gave us one of his postcards with photography I recognized. His work is fantastic!

Costume was made and worn myself. I also styled my own wig and made my own props.

You realise that this is a cosplay of Cloud during the time of Crisis Core.
He didn't didn't make it into SOLDIER, he became a basic Shinra Infantryman, and what do they wield? Guns.

Woah this is amazing, I'm usually not a big fan of styling wigs to exact spikes but I really like this version! Plus how did you construct your armour? it looks amazing. I was trying to get a pretty realistic look when I cosplayed Kuja so I'm intrigued!

Is the gun an actual gun or a very realistic model? If a model what did you make it from?
