Is continuous resurrection "the fate of a monster..." or maybe "...the fate of a God"?
Sephiroth from Final Fantasy VII Advent Children Complete has been an ongoing project for several years. I have been cosplaying for six years now, and five years ago was the last time I dared to wear it with pride. The costume was incredibly crappy back then, and when I saw the pictures, all confidence left me. In the years that followed I was never happy with the costume. I steadily made parts of it, then everything, until this Abunaicon. I'm still a far way from being a perfect Sephiroth, but finally I feel like I'm getting there. I will continue to improve this costume.
There is a SOUND SYSTEM hidden in the shoulder pauldrons. It continuously plays Sephiroth's theme song, the OneWingedAngel, wherever I go. I would sneak up to people and stand behind them. They would hear the themesong, turn around and I would be grinning. It was lovely! There was also some hip shaking mid-photoshoots as funny songs such as GonGaga www.youtube.com/watch?v=Lf2Sc8…
I really enjoyed this con and the attention I got as I hadn't really expected it. The costume is still incomplete after all. I hadn't planned any photoshoots but two lovely friends grabbed me and took photos! <3 Seeing these pictures back, I feel so happy to be able to portray this character with pride again as opposed to how I felt before!
Sephiroth is my favourite character. I will definitely cosplay him more in the future. as Sephiroth

This costume is completely self-made. If you have any questions about it, feel free to ask!
