I love it when people cosplay common characters in a unique way. For one I love that this person chose to cosplay Cloud from Kingdom Hearts considering everyone these days are doing the hotter advent children version. And might I add that it is an amazing cosplay despite this cloud being significantly harder to do. Everything from the spikes in the wig, blue contacts, and rips on the cape were thoroughly thought out and executed beautifully. I’m in love with the armour and the harnesses (which a very big kudos goes out to whoever made them so exceptionally well). I would even wear the gauntlet and the body harness on regular days days out considering how well they were made. Beautiful cosplay and thanks for putting a non-advent Cloud out there for us to enjoy!
“In Kingdom Hearts, Cloud appears in the Olympus Coliseum world. He is depicted with a claw and a crimson cape, and the blade of his sword is wrapped in bandages. Nomura has stated that Cloud’s left arm was inspired by Vincent Valentine, noting that, in this game, the character was supposed to illustrate a “demon-like” appearance due to his ties to the “dark side.” He has been hired by Hades to kill Hercules, but must fight Sora as a prerequisite… Cloud appears later in the Coliseum’s battle tournaments. During the credit roll at the end of the game, Cloud is shown reuniting with Aerith and the other residents of Hollow Bastion in the library after Cid has located him and brought him home.” Wikipedia – Cloud Strife
