First of all, my skill set and level of quality evolved over the past 10 years. I learned how to sew when I got into cosplay, and I am completely self-taught, so, depending on the costume I wanted to make, I had to learn new skills and evolve in my sewing and crafting techniques. These days I feel fairly confident that I could tackle almost any costume that catches my interest, but I also want to continue to challenge myself and hone my skills.

I want to make a costume. I want to put on latex and leather and a corset studded with screws, and I want to wear a wig, fake lashes and cupid bow lips in black. I want to move around, tall and regal, and see the world through someone else’s eyes. I want to wear gloves and ignore the heat and the sweat going down in rivulets on my spine under the synthetic material, because I want to be black and shiny and mysterious. I want to be Macabre Toshiya.

I had actually planned this Lightning cosplay very early on, in 2007, but never started it till very much later, choosing instead to debut Noctis Lucis Caelum (FFVersusXIII) first. Sketches, drafts and blueprints weren’t actually worked on until 2009, when I decided (on the very last minute, as usual) to attend an end-of-year event in Singapore as part of a Final Fantasy XIII team.

Thomas Kuan, aka Hexlord,  first started photography back in 2004, when he brought a digital camera to a cosplay event; in 2005 he advanced to a prosumer camera, and finally, in 2008, to a DSLR camera.

This costume was a collaboration with LimeBarb, so she handled most of the fabric work while I did the “hard” pieces (mask, prop, skates).  All in all, it took about 3 months to complete.
