Final Fantasy XIII Cosplay: Lightning (Yuzu Inumachi) Cosplay 23 MAY 2010

Probably the most important protagonist to step out of the Final Fantasy game world since Cloud, today Cosplay Sundae gives you: Lightning (without the thunder of course)!

Don't ask me about the hands. I don't know what I'm meant to be doing with them!

Final Fantasy XIII is of course the thirteenth installment of the hugely popular Final Fantasy games series, and as was expected, it was pretty much a runaway hit. The game (as have almost all its predecessors) introduced some great new characters for the fan’s to play around with and today it is the turn of Lightning, formerly known as Eclaire (or Claire if you’ve got the American release) Farron.

In an attempt to emotionally reinforce herself and step away from her tragedy after the death of her parents, Lightning cast aside her birth name and went on to become a sergeant of the Guardian Corps. Originally seeking out the Pulse fal’Cie Anima in order to try and save her sister Serah whom the fal’Cie had turned into a l’Cie, things became a little more complicated when the fal’Cie went ahead and transformed Lightning into a l’Cie herself, with the power to summon the Eidolon Odin!

A very independent and determined woman, Lightning does sometimes give off a hint of a compassionate side, though it is difficult to see through the smoke given off by her awesome gunblade known as Blaze Edge – basically the combination of a gun and a sword, the one collapsing over the other, and the gravity control she’s gifted by the device worn on her thumb.

Agile and acrobatic in combat, Lightning is certainly not an opponent you would wish to come face to face with!

The star of today’s Cosplay Sundae entry is a cosplayer going by the name of Yuzu Inumachi and as you can see, this Japanese girl has gone and got it right, pulling off a great looking costume complete with gunblade and the attitude to match!

Nice! :)

Alright, that's more like it. Don't mess with me security type people!
