Hi! Zack Fair is his "mentor", the one who made Cloud became what he is in FF7! That Buster Sword belongs to Angeal (a great First Class Soldier) that had left as a gift to Zack (his pupil) and than Zack left it to Cloud!
thanks a bunch, see i got lost in final fantasy seven after the casino on disk one, and it's been pretty cool up until the dustbowl thief land. it's a go talk to people place but there's random battles so UGH
Honestly, this is one of the best cosplay photos I have seen in some time. It captures the spirit of Zack Fair. Perfectly! Congratulations!
Now I want to go play Final Fantasy Crisis Core again. I wasn't able to finish the game/story before because my PSP broke. I haven't had it fixed yet. I will eventually, as soon as I have money that isn't obligated to flow in other directions. This deviation just gave me extra incentive to make that happen sooner than later.
I'm not even a fan of Final Fantasy 7 but I find this image to be really really great. The lighting and composition, the pose, just everything right down to the fact that it's black and white seems to come together nicely. Very well done!
