Aerith Gainsborough

My Aerith Gainsborough costume was made in early 2016 and worn alongside Carl Martin’s Cloud costume. We debuted these together at PAX South that year. Each of us made our own costumes and props, while both of our wigs were styled by Malindachan.

I documented the making of my Aerith costume through a detailed tutorial series. Check out the videos below for a closer look at each part of the costume! We also filmed a behind-the-scenes video of our first day wearing these costumes, and our photoshoot at PAX South.
