HDC Cosplay used some magic and turned himself into Final Fantasy’s Black Mage. With pieces like the hat, the cloak, leather accessories, and the staff, the costume required a variety of skills to tackle. HDC Cosplay built it all from the ground up and started with a sketch (pictured below). He had to do things like make the wire frame for the hat, sculpt the hat, stamp and paint leather, and more. HDC Cosplay used LEDs to make the Black Mage’s eyes glow, as well as the crystals on the character’s staff.
You can browse a couple hundred photos showing the construction process for the Black Mage costume at Facebook.
