Description
Kairi's Valor form that appears in Dead Fantasy II complete with Oathkeeper and Oblivion Keyblades.

I chose to make it because I always seem to have a lot of fun when there are keyblades involved in a costume and when I saw this (having done both of Kairi's costumes from KHII) it seemed like a great idea. My friend Fyria then decided to join in as Rinoa from the same thing.

The hardest part was the keyblades, working out the design to scale then all the layering, detailing and painting. The easiest was probably the dress it's self. There are a few changes from the original Pink Version but I just used the other dress, shirt and bag as the pattern for the new one.

It was so much fun to wear, the Kairi in Dead Fantasy is a little bit more baddass than the one from Kingdom Hearts II and I enjoyed being able to pose with Fyria. I'd really like to find some other characters from Dead Fantasy - The DoA characters if possible as it would be great to do a shoot with some.

Thank you guys! I think I'm going to try to take it to London Expo this year in May... But they Keyblades can be a little tricky to transport by train so I shall see. It would be awesome for me and Fyria to have some pictures with other Dead Fantasy people at some point.
