Amazing job on all the details! I just made our costumes this year too(cloud and aeris), and after all the hard work, now that it's over, I feel empty inside ahah!

Thanks for posting the link to that tutorial too, I found her site to be very helpful for next year's idea!

I saw your costumes, and they look great!  The photo shoot is really good too.  I saw the closeup of Cloud's shoulders and thought, "Ah, antiquing: the one quick step that makes everything look KICKASS."  And I know exactly how you feel!!!  I think we should both take our costumes to a comicon to enjoy them a bit more  Grin

@ojy : Thanks for the perspective on the excesses of some cosplayers  Cheesy  I have to say, though, that I found a lot of really helpful information and resources on the forums of cosplay.com and some other LARPing sites.  Cosplay.com has some good tips on selecting and styling wigs, and the tusks I found through a lengthy discussion thread on a LARP site.  I'm not ashamed to benefit from the knowledge and experience of people who spend waaaaaay more time thinking about these things than I do.

The one thing I wish I could have found some insight on was a better way to attach the shoulders.  Both of them are designed as separate pieces from the rest of the armor, and are attached by ropes that hook in on the inside of the pauldrons.  Pugool's shoulders each have one rope running from front to back under the opposite shoulder.  Mine have a rope in front and one in back running from left to right, then another rope on each shoulder that goes under my armpits.  They were far and away the hardest parts of the costume to put on.

There is some awesome advice on the cosplay.com forums, I agree. And, the best suggestion I could give for attaching armor pieces is good velcro.

Fan-freakin-tastic! You did a wonderful job on those. Makes me wish my hubby still played WoW. Well, not really, but it would have made for an awesome costume. Seriously, you did great. Those costumes just look so amazing!

OMG, that freakin' ROCKS.  Like Epic craft-tasticness!  I agree, too, that there's an over-representation of night elves in cos-play and 2D fan art.  About time someone did a bad ass troll chick! 

For the Horde!

These are AWESOME!  I'd thought about doing the same thing with one of my WoW characters this year, but the time and money just wasn't there.  There are no words for these costumes!
