CosBlog # 77: Lightning Farron by Eclair
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 Character
The character is Lightning Farron from Final Fantasy XIII-2.
I 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.
Well, 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:
I wore the costume at a convention in October called “Romics.” My friend and I did a photoshoot at Lucca Comics in 2011.
