Lightning FF Final Fantasy XIII 2 armor unfinished by Zwielichtodin Lightning FF Final Fantasy XIII 2 armor unfinished by Zwielichtodin
Here you can see an unfinished chest/back armor of Lightning (Favo Chara XD) This is my first cosplay that I made XDD
I know, itīs totally epic fail, because itīs too large and it doesnīt look like her armor. Maybe I try it again to make the bust armor XDD MAYBEEE XDD Hehe Iīm so lazy XDDD But I wanted to have her cosplay XDD and I canīt buy it XDD

the only (cheap) chance to get it: self made XD
material: plastic, craft foam, covered with (thick) stainless steel foil


Edit: sry, I canīt make a tutorial because I havenīt taken photos of the process XDD
I wanted to show you the second version (how it looks like now) but the links that I pasted in my journal donīt work...
Anyways, the chest armor is damaged now (it was too large) and I canīt get the material anymore, so I have to visit conventions with a dented chest armor XDD Epic fail XDD

I have used sample clips (those clips that look a bit like screws) because glue did not stick :-)

the steel foil is flexible (I have used plastic (wonderflex) for the base (by heating it with a hot-air-gun), that is why the foil keeps in shape)
I hope you can understand my bad english XDDD

thank you for your comment^^
the steel is just a layer, I would say a very thick foil XDD
I have covered my Lightning version 1 gunblade with it, because I love shiny things XDD
the problem is, I canīt buy the material any more because the producer have closed his store XD
(I hope my english is understandable XDD)
