Gabranth side by Shoko-Cosplay Gabranth side by Shoko-Cosplay
Gabranth was a dream.
I remember my first reaction when I played the game in 2007 " wooo amazing Gabranth!".
I always wanted to do this costume, but, it was lot of pain. It was near of 6 months of work about proportions, documentation, photos of helmet.
I constituate plans of armor, weapon and took many photos of the helmet during square enix stand in convention. After months of research, I bought foam in different size and I began.
I mixed the dissidia sword design and color of armor, I prefer this design compared to FF XII. But, I keep the helmet from FF XII. For the painting, It took two week on test, I wanted a " clair obscur" effect. On stage, the effects aren't enough visible. But on the photo, it seem good. The costume was made in two month of full work, it was my most ambitious costume. I was so tired during the con, I have not many photos.It's a full armor and, it was very difficult to wear and very hot. But, it was one of my most interesting dream. I was very surprise by people reaction. It was a moment of joy.I wanted to thank my friend because he help me a little for the helmet ( my horns were just a fail and hurt on the shoulder armors... the helmet took 2 weeks of work just for the assembly of pieces ;_;) for the cape; It's painted in many tones of white, red and black.I wanted a little relief of painting. (Sorry for my bad english <<)

Je ne me souviens pas de telles photos dans les galeries de Flex... Dommage qu'il n'ait pu te (je me permets) photographier, il a manqué quelque chose o_o

Absolument incroyable. Je me répète mais bon... <_<

Flex ne me prends jamais - ou rarement- en photo^^ du coup je demande en avance aux photographes qui veulent bien de moi.Je suis très contente du set de Cooladn, mais on a du faire ça trop vite malheureusemnt :/ J'espère pouvoir reporter le costume et faire d'autres photos car je n'en ai pas beaucoup ^^' en tout cas merci pour ton commentaire, c'est vraiment gentil et motivant ! :rose:

Oh le goujat! Il ne sait pas ce qu'il rate ^^
Si j'étais photographe professionnel, je ferais un shooting avec toi. Il y a plein d'idées qui fleurissent ^^

Vas-tu à la Japan Expo cette année? Un cosplay de prévu du coup?

Merci à toi d'avoir répondu! :)

C'est vraiment gentil ^^ en fait, Flex choisi ses modèles.. c'est " son truc", du coup ce week end j'ai demandé à Omaru des photos, il n'a pas refusé il était même content.
Pour japan j'espère y aller les 4 jours, ça dépends du travail et je suis dans le flou là :/ Mais en tout cas le dimanche je serais là en costume.

Reste juste à croiser les doigts pour les autres jours!
Je t'en prie, c'est normal de répondre =)

Not many people have great attention to detail but you do! This is really well done. The craftsmanship is excellent. The way the pieces are painted and assembled fantastic! Amazing work it seems it was worth the 6 months. :)

Romain en voyant cette photo a dit : "Non mais c'est une image du jeu" et j'avais beau dire que c'était un cosplay, il ne me croyait pas !
Heureusement que tu as mit une vidéo, j'ai pu le convaincre.
Je ne me lasse pas de regarder des photos de ce costume, il est vraiment super bien fait *.*

Eh ben, si le costume a le rendu d'une figurine, ça fait super plaisir, j'ai travaillé à partir de la figurine, elle avait un beau rendu couleur, je me demandais si j'allais arriver à avoir le même, au final je le trouve " comme la figurine" à tel point que j'ai encore du mal à me dire " c'est, mon costume ça?" merci beaucoup Jeece
