Musician Gackt is the closest we'll get to a real-life Final Fantasy character. And this hug pillow might be the closest you get to Gackt.

He really looks like a Final Fantasy character! And according to Gackt, FFVIII's Squall Leonhart was based on his appearance.

What's more, Gackt not only did the theme songs for Dirge of Cerberus: Final Fantasy VII, he also voiced Genesis Rhapsodos in Crisis Core: Final Fantasy VII and lent his image to the character.

His latest single Akatsukizukuyo (Day Breakers) is the theme for Square Enix's latest iOS role-playing game 3594e.

Via Twitter user vamparckt, here is the bonus life-sized hug pillow that comes with the premium edition of Akatsukizukuyo (Day Breakers). You can, apparently, unzip it.
