Final Fantasy XIII
Lightning

The assignment was to create a few costume elements (vest, lighted armor, boots, gloves) for this character, and her sword as well. I made the shoulder armor out of craft foam coated with styrene, and el wire (which I inserted into slots that I had cut into the armor--this was the part of the shoulder that glowed like neon. I could turn the el wire on and off by means of a battery pack that I had attached to the underside of the armor.) I made the sword out of wood, craft foam and styrene. (Alas, it does not transform like the sword does in the game.)
