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.

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.
