Cosplay of Fran from Final Fantasy XII. Proud to say I won the inaugural Masquerade at the Eurogamer Expo with this costume - their first, and mine too!

Probably my favourite costume to wear, though I did invent several new swear words whilst making it. Her armour and helm are made from craft foam, coated with black spray paint and ebony Rub 'n' Buff. The corset is more foam armour, 4-in-1 chainmail, and a miracle of structural engineering.

Thank you very much! I always liked Fran, so I had to make it as accurate as possible - she's worth it. :)

Absolutely!

P.S. If you can nail the accent that Nicole Fanti did for her, I'm probably going to have to marry you. Just sayin'.

But yes, again, fantastic work. I really wish I had the money and finances to devote to cosplay. Instead, I am hoping, that the costume department will take care of me on set someday. Someday...

How did you manage to get all of the detail in her leg armour? It looks so amazing!

Thanks very much! It's just 2mm craft foam, cut and layered. I used a big render of her as a reference, and cut out a load of little shapes to glue on there...

Thanks! :)
The bow is actually a real flat bow - I got it years ago at a medieval fair, since I actually enjoy archery. Thought I might as well use it for the shots...
