Lulu is a commanding black mage from the Playstation 2 game Final Fantasy X. A powerful magic user, she is strong, confident and independent. The guardian and older sister figure to the summoner Yuna at first she comes across as a little cold and distant, though throughout the game she shows how warm and caring she truly is. Long before the game came out I wanted to make this costume, I knew the moment I saw it I wanted to make it. When I finally played the game I was so pleased to discover that she was in fact an awesome character on top of the fact that she had an AMAZING outfit.
This costume was made for and debut on the Saturday of the 2007 Fan Expo Canada. This was my first real attempt at recreating a game costume, and I think it turned out fairly well. I attended my first convention in this costume and I have to admit it was a bit of a sensory overload. I could not have even begun to imagined the kind of attention this costume got. This costume was entirely crafted by me, including the wig which was made from a hairnet and piles of loose hair. I spent a very long time trying to find the right colour leather look fabric, and though I love the colour the fabric I used was far too heavy. I also didn't detail it the way I would have liked, as I left myself only a couple days to make this costume. This was and still is my dream costume, so it will be remade at some point in the near future.
Though I wore this costume to only one convention and one small photo shoot, it is still a costume I care very deeply about. Quite a bit of work went into this, and though it will not be worn again it will always be remembered.
