Maybean Cosplay put a gender bend spin on Final Fantasy VII’s Barret Wallace and the results are outstanding. Every aspect of the costume and her poses scream intimidation, which completely fits the character. In the game, he’s violent and the leader of an eco-terrorist group. The costume is a cool mix of props and armor you’d have to make and items you could find in your favorite thrift store. Maybean found the belt and pouches for her costume from a military surplus store and she made fake bullets to go with it.
The abdomen band was something Maybean made. She crafted it from 2mm craft foam, hot glue, and wire. She posted some detailed making-of pictures on Imgur to show how she created the rivets and added the hooks. You can see a couple of the in-progress photos below.
Maybean has shared more photos of the finished costume here and a few more pics of the ab band here.
