The Escapist Wants Your Final Fantasy Cosplay!

The Escapist Wants Your Final Fantasy Cosplay!

image

If you've ever taken pictures of yourself wearing a SOLDIER uniform with your hair gelled up in huge spikes, we want to see it.

If there's one thing we here at The Escapist have noticed since we've been posting galleries of cosplay from the shows we attend, it's that our community really digs well-done costume work. With an upcoming issue of our weekly magazine focusing entirely on the state of the modern JRPG, we thought it would be appropriate to publish a cosplay gallery for one of the longest-running - and certainly the best-known - JRPG series in videogame history.

The only problem is, we just don't have enough pictures of Final Fantasy cosplayers in our existing galleries. So, that's where you come in.

If you'd like to be featured in our Final Fantasy cosplay gallery, please send a picture (or a link to a picture) of the costume to editor (at) escapistmag (dot) com with the subject "Final Fantasy Cosplay." If you would like to include a link to an online cosplay profile or a short comment or two about the process of making the costume - difficulties, techniques, etc. - you may do so.

Some quick rules:

*Please send in your own work. No grabbing random images off the internet and pretending they're your own. If it isn't an image you took yourself - or an image of you in costume - don't send it in. If you can properly source the picture, you have a much higher chance at being chosen for our gallery.

*No huge images. If you attach an image rather than sending a link, keep the file size reasonable. Resize the image if you need, because they're going to end up resized anyway. Nobody likes getting 3MB attachments spammed to their email.

*You may not be selected. Depending on how many submissions we get, we may not use all of them. If you send an image in and don't get selected, our apologies, but thank you for contributing!

*Keep it worksafe. This one should be pretty obvious. No porn, please.

We look forward to seeing your costumes! To everyone else, look for our Final Fantasy cosplay gallery the week of November 8th.

Awesome.
Though the costume shall be terrible, I'm going to be Squall for Halloween, so I shall be sure to send my picture in ^_^
Now where did I put the masking tape for my gunblade...

Just out of general curiosity, how many people do actually send in Pornography when you ask people to send stuff in, including the film festival?

OT: I love Cosplay, and want to do it myself. Currently debating on what though, but doing a Final Fantasy character might be a bit too much of a leap for me.

Calumon: I bet I'm harder than them!

Well I'm not gonna participate in it, but I'd love to see the submissions. Especially the Lightning cosplayers, I've barely seen those!

I would totally send mine in, did Advent Children Cloud a few years ago (make that 6 years ago) and have pics of it... but the pics aren't that good, and I'm a bit too embarrassed to send them in... I still might tho. =X

I hope to see more 13vs cosplay this year. Hey Are u guys counting kingdom hearts?

...Fun! but...

Tell me when you guys are asking for Metal Gear Solid cosplays. Me and my group shall be waiting.

-Big Boss

When do we have to send in pictures by? I might just make a costume or something for this.

Will be definately submitting my Nero the Sable cosplay.....

I'm going to have to buy a lot more belts and hair gel for this!

I nominate myself to be the judge of what is pornography. So please send me any pictures that may be raunchy with a telephone number and timetable of dates you are free for me to personally view the outfit and inspect for any traces of pornographic....eh-pornilia. I will then give the ok and you can send it in.

I ask no reward for this heavy burden I lay upon myself, only that in latter days some may speak a kind word of my name when so many speak ill. For I am a humble servant of the greater good and lived in the shadow of giants....

I'd be Sazh...but I'm not black enough.

O.O

Jack, have you been monitoring what Calumon does on the internet?

Ah, the Escapist, last safe haven for wit, where it can escape the jokes about everyone's mother and the "your a newfag" mentality. God bless those people keeping up the servers in North Carolina.

Also, Calumon probably isn't as hard as Lono Shrugged wants to be.

Anyways, I wish I could make an FF costume, but I look more like Junpei from Persona than any FF character.

That actually wasn't sarcasm. Everything I quoted there was actually quite entertaining. Posts like that are why I love this website.

Sorry, it was really hard to tell if your being sarcastic or not when you can't hear the persons voice.

It's cool. And I will now, ressurrect the fun:

FF cosplay huh ? If I died my hair white I could pull of Cecil Harvey. As good a time as any for me to try my hand at cosplay I guess.

It's a shame it's only FF cosplay. I was going to be Hei from Darker than Black for halloween.

I just forwarded this to all my cosplayer friends.

Haven't done FF... I did go to a con as Riku in KHII, though. But I don't think that counts.

Hehehehehe I am the giant Moogle! Fear me puny mortals! >D

the escapist needs to improve its taste...alot.
