"Cosplay of Fran from Final Fantasy XII. Proud to say I won the inaugural Masquerade at the Eurogamer Expo with this costume - their first, and mine too! Probably my favourite costume to wear, though I did invent several new swear words whilst making it. Her armour and helm are made from craft foam, coated with black spray paint and ebony Rub 'n' Buff. The corset is more foam armour, 4-in-1 chainmail, and a miracle of structural engineering."
