Its not Link, I know. but cloud is cool tooo! heheh, but not as cool as link 'cough' :dance:
I was finally able to wear this at Anime Expo 2006. Im happy I finally got it done. hehe i wonder how many people actually recognized me with shades on. that was my point since it was a secret costume :D
Ive wanted to make a cloud costume since final fantasy vii, but i kept holding off. reason.....the hair. XD. And I actually started doing research as soon as Advent Children was first introduced. Got more excited after the movie came out, But it was this year I finally got around to making it. The navy vest is very comfortable lol :D
So much went into this costume, this is the first costume that I own that is not entirely made by me, i had the help of such wonderfull friends. But heheh we made a trade, I made something for their costumes in return :D.
I made the entire sewing part of the costume including the Cloudy Wolf shoulder armor emblem was sculpted by me, and I made the boots and altered the shades. The sword (which is currently wrapped KH style in this pic) and shoulder armor was made by my friend Jake, and in return i made him some cloud boots ^^. The wig was made by Ramen and Rice and it came out so awesome, but due to a color dyeing accident i had to hose wash the entire thing TT_TT, completely washing out the dye and i tried to put the spikes back in and i wanted to make them look fluffy, and i also added a few more spikes here and there. So I basically had to restyle the whole wig myself. We made them a goofy shield to go with their awesome goofy and donald costumes *omg they both looked so good*

Those of you who keep asking if the sword is wrapped in toilet paper..seriously *shakes head*. You can see that it stretches right? toilet paper does not stretch, and note the width of it too, please put two and two together. It's not difficult. These questions are rather annoying. If you haven't noticed already, it's bandage. The EXACT same stuff i wear as ordon link.

Anyway. This is one of my favorite close up pics. and i really love how everything looks. The vest was a pain in the butt, but i like how it came out. The shades came out pretty nifty too.

Where can I buy that wig

I'm sure you can find something similar online. This was a regular wig that was cut and styled to what it is in the pic.

metrojosh Featured By Owner Jul 31, 2012
if i wanted to pay you for the exact same outfit (minus the wig, sword, boots, and pants) so basically the vest with the pauldron and arm cover how much would it cost? this is the most realistic one and I want to wear this as normal apparel on any given day... can you help me?
Lylaforlovers Featured By Owner Jul 30, 2012

I was there on that I think second floor when the Final Fantasy shoot was happening in A-X '06.

I totally loved your outfit and the wig was just perfect. Wonderful job and I am happy I got to see this in person :)
electricknite Featured By Owner May 12, 2012  Hobbyist Photographer
did you knit the vest yourself?
AmericanBeauty87 Featured By Owner May 5, 2012  Hobbyist Traditional Artist
Is I could PAY you to make a wig like that for me? (Going as Cloud this Halloween). I am DEAD serious!! Or PAY you $$$ to make the ENTIRE costume for me (or at least PAY you to get the secrets to make it)? Minus the sword. Again, I am DEAD serious. Please let me know! This is simply...amazing! :-o

Kazuma36 Featured By Owner Feb 9, 2012
Can you tell me how to get a wig that accurate. i have everything but the wig because people keep making these super spiked wigs that make cloud look retarded. this wig is amazing. so any info on how to get it would be helpful. seriously, i have everything, i went so far as to get an extremely accurate stainless steel buster sword that is a total of like 7 ft. long and weighs a shit load.

This is the best Advent Children Cloud I've seen (and the pose is almost the same as my wall scroll).

What fabric did you use for the vest?

Oh boy do I have a question for you!

I have to go as Cloud to my friend's birthday party (Comic Con) and I need a costume. I have a shirt i can use, but I need total help with the shoulder armor and sword. What did you do to make it? That's really it I've got/bought everything else from other costumes and stuff. Any advice? Thank you so much!!!
benn232 Featured By Owner Jul 18, 2011
