Even though cosplay originates in Japan it does not mean other countries are not interested in the phenomenon. The United States and Canada along with other western countries definitely participate in cosplay but the cosplay costumes are often different. These countries are more interested in dressing up for Star Wars, Star Trek, and Lord of the Rings.
Now that anime, manga, and video games have all become popular in western societies you can see more cosplay costumes similar to the traditional Japanese versions.
One problem faced by people interested in cosplay is that anime characters are often not like regular people. Their bodies are often not proportional especially in the females, which makes it hard to look like the characters exactly.
A series which has always been great for cosplay is Final Fantasy. This anime series has wonderful character development that is unmatched by any other video game. Especially the main characters provide strong emotions that will make you feel attached to them and be interested in Final Fantasy cosplay costumes. Below are short bios about the main characters from Final Fantasy VII-XIII.
He was the lead in FF VII. What most people remember about Cloud is his extremely spiky hair, which is always used by cosplayers. Also he had a huge sword, which was bigger than him. Cloud is not just a onetime character he was so popular that Square Enix put him in Final Fantasy Tactics, Dirge of Cerberus, and many of the Kingdom Heat games. Also he is the main character of the Final Fantasy based movie Advent Children.
He is from FF VIII, considered one of the best games ever made. Squall is much different from past FF lead characters; he was extremely emotional which caused him to be disliked. However, the story of FFVIII made him become a favorite and appear in the Kingdom Heart series.
He is the main character from the old school FF IX. Zidane would never be considered too emotional like Cloud or Squall, he was actually extremely happy and energetic. Zidane is not an extremely popular protagonist but he does have some fans.
He was the main character from FF X. His outfit was supposed to be a uniform for the game Blitzball and was similar to that of football. He has a sad story in the game but is not loved by all fans. Tidus was also somewhat emotional like Squall but had some fans and comes back in the sequel Final Fantasy X-2.
Vaan is the narrator of FF XII. Vaan is a much more mature main character than the past overly emotional characters. He is going to make a cameo appearance in the game Final Fantasy Tactics A2.
Those were the main characters of the most popular Final Fantasy games. If you want Final Fantasy cosplay costumes these characters are probably your best choice because they are well recognized and loved. Final Fantasy cosplay costumes do not need to stop with the male leads however, because every FF game has had an equally important female counterpart also great for Final Fantast cosplay costumes.
