Cosplayer Yuri Narss, also known as Narcisspuppet, does absolutely amazing work when it comes to bringing his favorite characters to life. He re-creates characters down to the last detail, and that’s evidenced in his recent take on Vincent Valentine from Final Fantasy VII. Photos of the costume are so beautifully done that look like they’re from promotional material. And in case you’re thinking they’re heavily manipulated in a program like Photoshop, guess again. The dramatic effects are achieved with lighting and makeup.
Lexa One Photographie took the photos and served as lighting technician. Yuri shared some information about the costume:
Wig styling: Is styled with spray and cutting.
Cape: Thrown by assistant multiple times.
Gauntlet, gun and any costume related: Has not been retouched. The metallic gold is smooth and exactly as it is in real life.
