:bulletgreen:me as Lumina ~all props and costume made by myself
:bulletgreen::camera: :iconhellsign:

It's all begin when we saw Lightning (LR version design) in Dec 2012. My sis :iconepi-corner: really like it and decided to cosplay Lightning again ~ I don't have clue whether I am join her or not. I really want to cosplay FFXIV ~ waiting for more pic references that time.
~Then Lumina announced......(forgot dec/early jan) ~ okay I decided to join her

Both of us started in January :) there were only 4 pics of Lumina that don't help me figure out the design. I just guess and guess XD ~ I started with learning from Lumina main pic. I only figure out inner dress and sleeveless coat base design XD
After E3 demo and E3 offscreen video ~ finally I realized all of her design, except her chain accessories on top of her right stomach.
Thank you to all of friends and especially my sis who gave and downloaded all of pics and video for me TT____TT
I am not lucky with any Lumina resources >.<

My current costume isn't finish yet >.< I still lack of chain accessories, buckles , my wings still not looking good >.< it fell during photoshoot, etc ~ during my photoshoot, My Mom helped me so much ~ She's always be my hero forever TT____TT
all of mistake or lack details will be revise soon. I plan to wear it at AFAID 2013.

btw, I am writing on my blog about this (my progress). you can check here ~ still not finish yet ~ writing about progress/ tutorial really take a time >.<


personality, I am not fans of Lumina. I just enjoying cosplay a new character. My fave chara to cosplay in Lightning Saga is Oerba Dia Vanille. I hope SE give her new design :heart::heart: ~ and I'll definitely cosplay her hahaha...

I hope I can see many of Caius Ballad scene in LR. He's always be my one of fave male chara in FF series:heart::heart:
