Yuna is a playable character in both Final Fantasy X and Final Fantasy X-2. She has a Berserker look where she dons animal skins and fur and cosplayer Amie Lynn built it over the summer for a cosplay event in Costa Rica. The costume features armor components, horns, gloves, and a bodysuit. It requires quite the mix of skills to make. She used foam for the armor and gloves. Here’s how she made the helm and shoulder armor:
The armor was made in several steps. 1)Cardboard base. I eyed everything which is why the horns are a little asymmetrical. 2)Expanding foam. Wait 1-2 days then start carving! 3) Papermache 4)Paperclay 5) Sand, sand, sand!! If I had more time this is where I would have filled all the low spots and grooves to have a smoother finish. In some photos the high and low points are very noticeable. 6)Prime and paint!!
She made the bodysuit with built in nude nylon sections (always an option if you don’t want to bare your midriff or other skin), and the patterns on the bodysuit were added with spray paint. She used light coats and says it’s easier than painting the pattern on by hand.
