Final Fantasy X-2 Cosplay in Los Osos, California

My mum made this Yuna Braska costume for me about eight years ago as one of my very first anime cosplays (up till then I’d only done sci-fi and Disney related cosplays, and I didn’t know how to work on my own costumes!) but once Jonathan and I started getting into cosplay together, we decided to pull this one out and make Jonathan a Tidus cosplay and do a photoshoot together last year in 2012!

We whipped his costume together over the weekend, drafting the pattern from scratch. We used a combination of fabric, pleather and eva foam for the arm on Tidus.

We took the pictures at Montana de Oro in Los Osos, California. We were hoping for blue skies, but got overcast skies, fog and stormy seas instead, lol. But we had a blast!!
