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.

Yaaay, genuine Legend of Dragoon Shana cosplay!

Though to be honest, it's just not the same without wings.

:wow: This is amazing considering you had only a few weeks to put this together. Shana's armor is really pretty though I haven't gotten there yet. I just started playing LoD and am loving it.

This is one of the first times I've seen someone cosplay this! I loved this game so much it was one of the first games I ever played and it was so awesome! I thought I was the only one, haha. Really nice armor work, that's one thing I'm trying to learn how to do. It's proving very difficult. >.<

You can buy craft foam at most craft stores or online. Also known as Foamies or Fun Foam.

One other question...how badly did wearing this limit movement?
Reply
:iconfirelilycosplay:
FireLilyCosplay Featured By Owner May 2, 2011  Hobbyist Artisan Crafter
Not very much. I couldn't do a lot with my hands because of the gloves, but the armor didn't really hinder me at all. Everything except for the gauntlets was attached with magnets, so it was really easy to get everything on and off and adjust if needed.

Magnets? I smell an internet meme joke here somewhere....

? Not sure what you're referring to... I used neodymium magnets instead of velcro or snaps. Much easier to work with and I don't have to worry about them ripping through the craft foam. Think of heavy-duty magnetic purse snaps.

There was an internet meme floating around somewhere my friends kept referencing, that had something to do with magnets. Sorry, my mind is a bit random. I didn't even think about anything like that, I was thinking something more like a suit. Interesting, probably be easier to wear/make with magnets to attach it all together

I'm almost two years late commenting on this, but excellent effort, and a wonderful job! :) In the unlikely event the fans' fantasies ever came true, I would say that if Sony ever put out a casting call for an actress to play a live action version of Shana, they would be unwise to pass you up. You really look the part here! 'Tis uncanny, madam, and I mean that in all honesty. I would only hope they come up with an equally worthy actor to play Dart opposite you. ;)

Although you have a vast and deeply impressive array of lovely cosplay on display in your gallery, I can't help but think this is your magnum opus, the best of the best...or maybe I'm just biased because I liked Shana so much (curses on Miranda for replacing her! lol).
