Final Fantasy X
1/1

Auron was my first "real" cosplay that a group of friends and I made because we wanted to dress up for a convention... and look what that all led to.

At the time I knew nothing about thermoplastics and I actually learned by watching some YouTube video tutorial that wasn't even in English (man, we are all super lucky now!). I could barely sew and ended up hand sewing pretty much everything before being shown how to actually use a machine (and then I went over my hand stitches to, you know, make them good and strong).

Auron

I wanted to do this costume because Final Fantasy X was one of my favourite in the series (I do love me some 9 though...). I'm not sure exactly what drew me to this character but I love the costume and I love that I can still pull it out and wear it, even 5 years after I made it. I definitely do enjoy the "real estate" that he takes up and the presence that he has on a convention floor.

Trust me, I won't be retiring this costume any time soon. It's forever going to be the one that got me into cosplaying!

Clips

Took forever trying to find something that looked like leather clips... Ended up just making them myself from scratch out of Wonderflex.
