Shana - Legend of Dragoon by FireLilyCosplay Shana - Legend of Dragoon by FireLilyCosplay
This has been my ultimate dream costume for so long. Legend of Dragoon is a very special game to me. It was one of the first games I ever played, and I adore it from opening to close. The dragoon armor was simply breathtaking, and Shana's in particular is very elegant and fascinating. My friend Envel asked me after Otakon 2008 if I wanted to get in on some Dragoon action with her and I just couldn't pass up the opportunity ^.^

The entire costume was made in just over 2 weeks, so I was very rushed in making everything. The armor is made of craft foam and hot glue for the detailing, with a few bits of cardboard and vinyl tubing here and there. I did make the wings from painted vinyl, craft foam, PVC, and pink foam (my first real wings ever), but they were too heavy for my wing harness and I didn't have time to remake the harness for the con. But I didn't mind not having them for my costume debut, since they were really heavy ^.^ Hopefully I can get that part figured out soon.

I'm so glad this costume worked out well. I simply love the game and I'm so thrilled that I could finally cosplay as Shana!!

Every time I search for TLoD cosplays I always find myself drawn back to the high-quality costume of yours here. :)

What materials did you use, and how did you get the fine details so well? I want to make an Albert one for myself, but I have huge reservations about how badly I might screw it up. (And apparently I commented in May of 2013, hah!)

This is truly amazing, especially to be done in two weeks. I love this game to DEATH (in fact, I still play it) and want to cosplay as Albert the next time my local convention (Sakuracon) comes around, but...well, how did you make it so awesomely? Not only is the shape of each piece dead-on, but the detail work on the armor itself is stunning.
