Preview of my FFXIII-2 outfit. Eye are not shopped. I just stupidly bought blue contacts to go over already blue eyes.

I hope this gets a decent reception as the effort i put into this costume was very full on.
Firstly I’d just like to say that it took me 2 and a half weeks to make so it does have it faults but i shall try and fix them for the future were i shall be wearing this costume again for sure.

I'd like to thank everyone on the day who complimented and took into consideration the difficulty when walking around in this costume to walk a bit slower. and also to my noel helper ~Lastordersuk who helped fix my costume to myself and kept straightening it out for photos. This is surprisingly hard when you weld a sword in one hand and shield on the other.

Non the less, it was so enjoyable to wear her on the first day of the con that i just had to wear her on the Saturday too. For a total of 6 hours. It give me a better work out than going to the gym.
Haha, if you have any questions. Don’t be afraid to ask <3!

It's pretty scary how much you look like Lightning.. I thought at first that this was a screenshot taken from the game of what you wanted your costume to look like...

This is really amazing. You're a great Lightning. :) I'd love to cosplay Light. If you don't mind me asking, how did you make the costume? Or did you purchase it?

Thank you very much. 

It's made out of craft foam and plastic, nothing special. You could most likely buy  it from your local stores around your area~ 

If there's anything you'd like to know specifically just note me and i'll do my best to answer you~

I've seen that many people use craft foam for this costume. Will purchase it sometime soon. :) Need to make it for next years comicon. Thanks for your response!
