|Cost :||so far about £4|
|I did have this pretty much finished, but i out grew the skirt shamefully lol. Now all i have is the white top and the braces. But one of these days it will be completed!|
UPDATE: Decided to put this into the 'in progress' section as I found the top I had gotten years ago. Now all I need to do is find the braces and get the wig and boots. XD!
UPDATE 2: Will be doing this for Kita now as I cant afford to do Lightning... again.... XD!
UPDATE 3: Should have put this in complete ages ago but I didn't. WHOOPS!
UPDATE4: May re wear this for Hyper Japan on the FRIDAY as I cant get Re-L finished in time. Only a maybe though, as I'm still in two minds whether to cosplay on the friday or just wear my hipster ariel or something thats halfly cosplay lol

everything done apart from... (Posted 18th March 2011)
Everything is pretty much done apart from her arm warmers which I&amp;#039;ll do later on today for something to do, and I&amp;#039;ll need to re glue on the little grey &amp;quot;studs&amp;quot; to her boot armour and elbow armour as some of them have come off. I&amp;#039;ll do the gluing on the Thursday of Kita in the hotel room though so they dont get damaged in the transportation of them!
Oh yeah! With 2 weeks to go before Kita I have decided I want to add her earrings to the costume which is typical of me! But I failed so epically on making them, that a lovely friend of mine who is experienced in making jewellery and earrings, will be making them for me instead and giving them to me before I go to Kita! YAY!
UPDATE: Armwarmers complete!
UPDATE 2: I got my earrings for Tifa from my lovely friend yesterday and they're perfect! Woo so now this is definitely 110% complete XD So looking forward to wearing Tifa at Kita its craaaaaaazzzzyyyyyy!!!
Braces continued and progress (Posted 21st January 2011)
So I've good head way with this costume!
Everything is done apart from getting the right socks, getting a belt, doing the armwarmers which I'll be making out of incredibly thick tights that my mom said she has laying around somewhere that she doesn't wear anymore, so once washed they'll be perfect! And it saves me money!
Now.. onto the braces:
But other than that my cosplay is like 90% complete!!
I add my crappy phone piccie onto this journal, as I'll upload better quality ones later into the "gallery" section ^_^
Braces (Posted 19th January 2011)
With thanks to the amazing FairyPorchQueen, I now have the accurate braces for this costume! I bought hers from her and received them this morning!
So now I just got to do her extra long arm warmers, finish up her 2 bits of armour, and buy and style the wig. WOOP! I was thinking if I can figure out how to do it, I'd add the red tips on the bottom of her hair as I haven't seen anyone do that yet.
Skirt WIP and more (Posted 11th January 2011)
I bought the most perfect base black skirt today from Primark for £2, it just needs shortening to Tifa's stupid "length" of a mini skirt haha!
Will be adding photos tomorrow when I can be assed to take them with the top together.
I found fantastic boots today in a store called priceless shoes, but they didnt have sizes any bigger than 13 (junior boots!) but I went on their site just now and they do a size 5 in the same boots!! So I got them! Nice and cheap! They're a tad shiny but I think they're plausible for Tifa's. If anyone has ideas on how to make them less shiny I'll be happy to hear them!
Now I just have to either find my braces I got years ago, or get new ones, buy the wig and style it, do the armour on the boot and elbow, do the armwarmer and I'm going to commission the amazing FairyPorchQueen for the gloves as I have NO experience in glove making at all!
