Amazing job!! I have a question that I've been asking a looootttt of other Fran cosplayers: how did you get the leg armor to stay up??? Mine keep falling down, and velcro sucks lol.

There are snap fasteners in the back to keep it shut but what holds it up is black elastic bands. Usually two per piece.

I like the orignal photo better... and not just cause its the original.... you captured a lot of emotion that seemed very Fran like.... or as I like to call her "bunnyfair" (Came from watching the original cutscenes in Jap with terrible english subtitles, they called Balfair Bunnyfair and I thought they were talking about Fran...lol... and the funniest thing is that subs were by Enix)

I love Fran, And I'm gonna cosplay her this or next year ;33 ~<33

Do you have some tips for the costume??

And I gotta say, you are one of the reasons why I cosplay her. (I well in love with the helmet you made ;3)

:iconthe-mirror-melts:

thank you :hug:
hmmm tips.. don't use sticky velcro! ever.
make sure the material you use for the helmet is lightweight.
Make your costume relatively easy to get out of because once you put on the long nails everything is so much harder to do.

No, the ones I'm talking about are farther down. They are lace up to around the knee area. They have a metal claw like heel and your toes would touch the floor.
