The lights are on
Final Fantasy’s Lightning Farron returned looking much fiercer in XIII-2. Cosplayer Eclair specializes in costumes of the pink-haired protagonist, and captured her new armored look to perfection. Check out the impressive craftsmanship below.
Who: The CharacterThe character is Lightning Farron from Final Fantasy XIII-2.
DecisionI chose Lightning because I feel similar to her, and feel that her story was similar to mine. This is the fourth version I’ve made of her.
ProcessWell, I didn’t have much time for the cosplay, and made it in about three months. The main material I used is a special plastic called “forex” that is modeled with heat. The weapon and shield were made with wood. There isn’t an overly “difficult part.” It was hard work, but I enjoy doing armor.
Where and When:
The DebutI wore the costume at a convention in October called “Romics.” My friend and I did a photoshoot at Lucca Comics in 2011.

I don't get how you make that
Whoa, this is a REALLY good cosplay, I'm very impressed.
That's pretty awesome
Really awesome! Huge fan of Final Fantasy. That is really good, some shots better than others, but still.. sweet!
All of these comments are so funny.
I wish I had the patience and skill to design cosplays like this, mine are simplistic but stand out. Bravo to those who are talented!
Really like the costume, except for the boots. Most of those pictures are pretty good too, except for one of the close ups. Lighting is one of my favorite female video game characters, so it's great to see some well made cosplay.
I hate cosplay
