You are looking at a cosplay that was 8 months in the making. Eight months that were totally worth it. You are looking at cosplayer NealBomBad's Cecil Harvey from Final Fantasy IV. You are looking at greatness.

NealBomBad created Cecil Harvey's Dark Knight version using 3D modeling software and then printed the armor on his 3D printer. The total print time took 500 hours.


Then, the cosplayer coated, sanded, primed, painted, and clearcoated the parts. NealBomBad told GameInformer, "The most difficult part was figuring out how to attach all the armor to themselves and to the body suit."

The most difficult part for me is thinking of something to say other than "wow".

Wow. Just. Wow.
