Lightning’s armor from Final Fantasy XIII

Last year, a client asked me if it was possible to realize the armor of the character Lightning from Final Fantasy XIII.

The client was a guy and as a result he wanted armor that was fit for a change of sex of the character.
First I made flatter the breastplate, to give it a more masculine cut,

then together with the customer have decided to turn the skirt of feathers in a cloak that covered only the back to the legs.

For the mantle have been used white goose feathers in large amounts.

In order to achieve the desired effect of a full armor bracelets are composed of two parts: the lower part fastens with straps and above that attaches with Velcro to hide the seams.
This trick has been used for the plaques on his shoulders.

Unfortunately, the color of the armor was very compact, so you can get a better effect metallic shadows that you see have been given by lighter strokes directly on the armature

Here you can see the final result.

I remained quite satisfied … unfortunately I have not had any news of my client, but I hope it was happy with the result as I do, and I heartily thank him for giving me this interesting project commissioned!
