This Final Fantasy XIII-2 Lightning Costume Is Electric

In Final Fantasy XIII-2, Lightning is a skilled knight. Cosplayer Lyz Brickley has done a fantastic job at re-creating the character from her long pink hair to her armor. She looks like she walked out of the game! She made her armor from craft foam, and it looks so much like metal it’s hard to believe it’s another material. Lyz helps the foam become sturdier by using cheesecloth:

I use cheesecloth on the backside of the foam to make it sturdy. You basically glue the cloth down and then do a layer of glue over it (like how you would fiberglass something :D) Then I coat the front side with several layers of watered down mod podge, but that is more for sealing the foam. I use spray primer before I paint it too. I don’t advise fighting a battle in it, but it looks sturdy enough.
