Judge Magister Gabranth 2. by Shoko-Cosplay Judge Magister Gabranth 2. 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 <<)

I feel honored, it was the most difficult cosplay I made à_à gabranth was like a dream, I wanted to realise him in 2007 but I was too noob for do such a big detailled armor, I learn as much as can with " smaller" costumes, and when I feel more sure of me, I began the conception of Gabranth. Finally, after 6 months of hard work, it was finish and it was a strange sensation <_< I thank you for your kind comment and hope you will try your dreams cosplay too! =)

You're right, each judge has a specifical design, each judge is a lot of work.I choose Gabranth for his personnality and design, it was an old dream for me :)

Je vois la cape et je ne comprends pas comment un tel graphique aie pu être fait. Un processus de sérigraphie ?
C'est tout simplement magnifique. Tes costumes gagnent-ils des prix ? Je l'espère!

Quand l'arrière d'un costume est digne de l'avant, c'est là qu'on voit de grands maîtres d'oeuvres :)

Bonne question ^^ en fait il y a trois ans, j'ai voulu faire un " no ren" pour un ami, ce sont les rideaux japonais qu'on place dans sa maison au niveau des portes.Et je ne savais pas comment faire.... j'ai réflechi et le déclic " et si je faisais un dessin, que je le découpais et peignais dedans!" c'est le même processus pour la cape, c'était très très long de tout dessiner, et découper.J'ai du passer au moins trois couches de peintures car il fallait que le rouge ressorte bien sur le noir de la cape. C'était vraiment long mais je suis contente du rendu.Je voulais le faire moi même et non céder à la facilité de le faire imprimer w_w
En géneral mes costumes gagnent des prix, mais je ne participe pas aux gros " events", je ne suis pas fan de la compétition.Je préfère un défilé sans prise de tête.
C'est vraiment gentil de savoir apprécier le travail sur les dos des costumes, beaucoup de gens n'y prêtent pas forcement attention.Je trouve justement que ce genre de détails est très important!

I'm totally stoked! What a great cosplay costume. You really have a great talent for this kind of work.
I've played FF XII, too and I remember that there wasn't that much possibilities to have a really close look on Gabranths' outfit. So you were really lucky to take some pictures at the SE-stand during that con! Without some good photos I'm sure it would have taken way much longer to finish that costume.

I'm a little bit curious...what are you doing with all that costumes after visiting a convention? Do you keep those outfits in your wardrobe? ^^
