Vayne Carudas Solidor Cosplay by wormboy212 Vayne Carudas Solidor Cosplay by wormboy212
Tekkoshocon '08

Vayne Carudas Solidor, Emperor of Archades and the Archadian Empire

Final Fantasy XII

This was a DeathCom Multimedia shot of my cosplay for this year's Tekkoshocon. I chose Vayne because I thought my face fit his to a degree and because his armor was not only extremely challenging as a costume but also really really well-designed and beautiful.

The costume was a chore to walk around in and parts of it were a nightmare to make, but I still hold that it was worth every second.

To my knowledge this is the first Vayne cosplay to implement real scale-mail in the design as opposed to a quilted vest centerpiece using sparkly fabric or painted fabric or the like.

There are nearly 400 scales and the patterning for every piece was done by hand. The armor plating was coated and sealed/painted foam rubber which was layered and shaped to fit. Everything is attached either using jewelers' pins or velcro, depending on what they are attaching to. The hair is natural.

You can see more of the cosplay in my cosplay.com gallery at [link]

OwO VAYNE has finally been glorified by a cosplayer! This is amazing! Now you just need a little Larsa to be brotherly with!

Bad ass man. You make the character come to life the way the others can only imitate. I loved seeing you at the Con all dressed up, it was faaaaantastic. Make sure that you don't slack off for the next cosplay... or else *garglin' motion with fingers*
