Naka-kon 2013: Zidane by Malindachan Naka-kon 2013: Zidane by Malindachan
This is still a work in progress! XD

I had intended to do the Dissidia version (which also happens to be based on one of Amano's original designs). I was stressing myself out from trying to get it all done on time for the con, so I opted to keep some areas more simple like the normal FF9 design for the time being, and I'll go back and get the rest of the details done before I wear it again at ACen. So the belts, gloves, sheath, and a few other accessories will be finished later.

I'll go over the full costume construction too when it all gets done. XD

Zidane is my fave character from nine, you've done the details well. How long did this take would you say to finish completely?

I had been working on it for about a month, and I'm thinking the rest of the details would take me another week to finish.

Gaaah! This is gorgeous. I can't wait to see the completely final version, but this is just very well executed. Also, those gloves and pants look so soft..

You look good, but I specially like your battle posture. I like it when good customs come together with good performance, since that's what cosplay is about, isn't it? You become the character.

Very cool! A friend convinced me to finally cosplay from Final Fantasy, so I chose Cosmos from Dissidia. I still have no clue what I'm doing to make that happen, though. >.<

OMG... this is too fabulous for words, even if still a WIP.

(and FF9 fans are so hard to find these days that cosplay from it; then again, I'm one to talk... me and dad still have been able to afford to do our dream team cosplays of Vivi and Steiner... *sigh*)

It's a shame, since FF9 is such a good game (way under appreciated IMO)
Hopefully you'll be able to make that dream come true! :D

My dad keeps hoping he'll get himself a decent job soon. If he does, then he can save up money to help the both of us to start work on it. Not gonna let this dream die, no way. (and yeah, it sucks how under appreciated FF9 is; that game not only is one of my top fave FFs of all time, but holds a special place in my heart of being one of the few games that both me and my dad love just as equally).
