Squall Leonhart by Simanion Squall Leonhart by Simanion
Not art, just a new ID. Childhood (Final) fantasy come true - Squall from FFVIII. Kinda lame, I know. But just indulge me. If there's one place to post this crap, it's on DeviantArt, haha.

I'm not normally a costume-based player but my friend had a themed party: game characters. I grew up with Final Fantasy and was obsessed with VII-X (I'm just...confused by everything post-X). While my older brother played FFVII and I watched, FFVIII was the first I played, and my first proper introduction to RPGs. I don't really game any more, ever since I started taking art more seriously and would just feel guilty that I wasn't spending time on that instead. But these games will always occupy a special place in my...thumbs.

So for the party I just threw together stuff I luckily already had. The faux fur was a leftover from when I was a Viking. The sword I cut from pieces of cardboard and held together internally with a metal ruler and butter knives. Lol. I was pretty impressed with myself for that.

This game never gets old and neither does the cosplay about it. Great job.
