Italian Deviant Artist/Photographer LarsVanDrake is the man behind this most recent Caius Ballad Cosplay from Grains of Eternal Paradox.
If you’re not familiar with the character, he’s from the Final Fantasy Saga (XIII-2 to be exact) and FinalFantasyWiki describes him as:
Caius Ballad (?????????, Kaiasu Baraddo?) is the main antagonist of Final Fantasy XIII-2, who has engaged his fated rival,Lightning, in an endless battle on the shores of Valhalla. Caius is an important figure in both Noel Kreiss’s past and Serah Farron’s future.
Caius is the immortal Guardian of the seeress, Paddra Nsu-Yeul. Having lived since before the War of Transgression, he protected Yeul from any foreign threat. Because his efforts to change the future shorten the seeress’s life, he now seeks to destroy the world to end her suffering by killing the goddess Etro.
Now that you’re a little better acquainted you can check out this mind blowing Cosplay below in what is some of the most elaborate work I’ve seen in Cosplay. Really, this sh*t has left me smacked in the gob!
