After The Years by Akitozz6 After The Years by Akitozz6
As a big fan of FFVII I decided to try cosplay one of my favourite characters - this photo represents Cloud after events of FFVII AC.
The hardest part of this costume was the sword. Its lenght is about 183 cm and is whole made from wood and cardboard plates. Took me two weeks to successfully finish it xD

Me as Cloud Strife (AC ver.)

This is pretty legit. You put a'lot of detail into your costumes and accessories. Keep up the excellent work.

Ah thank you! :) but this is old version. Few months back I remade this costume so it fits original more :D

Well that's good you've made improvements =p What's your next big costume idea? I think you would make a pretty good Kei (idk if I spelled his name right) from Gantz. I haven't read it in a long time.

I just found Gantz few weeks ago and now I'm in middle of watching series. But good idea nevertheless :) I may try him

It's a pretty good series.  I haven't read much manga or watched anime in a while. The last one I watched was Sidonia no Kishi. I love Tsutomu Nihei's works. Biomega, Blame! and Knights of Sidonia are all excellent mangas. They transferred over his art style to the anime pretty well.

Okay I kinda got off topic sorry haha. Anyways yeah, keep up the great work and let me know if you need any feedback or anything.

This is old version, old costume - back then I though it looked fine but not anymore :D. I remade the costume now so it looks more closer to original - soon I'll upload photos of "upgraded" version :)

oh I see ^^. but I think your cosplay costume is not so bad x). but I can understand, that you think that the costume is not so good, because it is older and the quality of the fabric is not so perfectly, as you wanted it ^^. but I think, your cosplay from cloud is really great and professionally ;). but if you are now better, I would gladly see the remake =D!

Oooo this is great work you have going on here :) I hope your buster sword doesn't give your shoulder a red bruise (Mine does that XD )

It does unfortunately. That sword is quite heavy so I always have trouble to hold it on my shoulder. So I must often take a rest especially at the cosfest :"D

Oh man us and our red bruises XD My sword is like 5'11' like in the game. It got pretty heavy after I was walking around with it, Good thing Cloud is 5'7' (I'm 5 '8') especially when more pictures come replace or join in XD

My sword is almost same long as my height - I'm 6'0' tall and the sword is 5'9' XDD so shorter than yours. But its weight is still killing me :D

Oh man I feel very short compared to you XD Us and our love for characters and how accurate we want to be, only us cosplayers XD Soooo sad all my cosplay buddies are faaaar away ;A; It would be cool to get together and Cloud it up XD We need some Mako enhancement to boost up our strength to carry our ridiculous swords XD

At least you have right height for Cloud :). Personally I think Vincent suits me better (we're almost same tall). And you have right with your cos buddies - my cospartners live too far from me. Thx God for the conventions where can we meet again XD

True. I seriously need to gain some weight - I'm so damn skinny :D

Hikarikun18 Featured By Owner Mar 5, 2014  Hobbyist General Artist
I love your Vincent cosplay and you may be a little tall for Cloud but I say go for it! You enjoy your character and that's all that matters. I enjoy some characters that I'm way to tall for but I cosplay them because I love them XD Oh all the awesome world friends I have yet to meet, conventions are the best bet XD Awwww you don't look to skinny to me XD I need to build up a little muscle on my arms for Cloud. At least a little bit of toning :D

Well done. I'd like to see Cloud actually age though, that being my only complaint about this. I honestly think it's really well done, the design is spot on, the sword looks great, the image it self has been beautifully edited. I just want an older looking Cloud. He has to be pushing almost 30 by the time AC happens. I'm not saying it to be mean it's just I haven't seen it yet. Near as I could tell though that I'm thinking about it It would be difficult to show his age with the way the character was designed by Square. Makes it a moot point really. Forget all that age stuff then.

The picture is fantastic your hard work really paid off it shows a lot of attention to detail and it brings back a lot of fond memories about the game... Except the chocobo racing... I still hate that part with a passion of a million suns. But I loved the motorcycle bit, and you've done a wonderful job.
