Time Taken : Started: September 2010. Finished: July 2011

Description
Drawn by Firnheledien on DeviantArt.
I was looking for different designs for characters and came across this for Rinoa. I fell in love with it instantly and knew I had to cosplay it. If anything, I might be able to start it next year, what with costumes coming to an end really quickly. Millenia will probably start earlier then I thought she would, which might leave me some spare time to be able to create another costume. This would definitely have to be the costume I want to work on.

Moved to In Progress. Seems like I'm doing quite a bit of it!
Is going to be used as a back up costume incase either one of my two other costumes aren't done or need fixing.

Never realized how long it's taken me to nearly finish this costume. Nearly a year. xD Can't wait to finish it!

Aaaand it's finished. Basically anyway. Just need to iron the boot things and attach a claspy thing onto them and it's finished. Though the wig I'm using for this has gone walk abouts. I need to find it.

Normally I’m not too keen on fanart versions of costumes but this one I love! It’s going to look so pretty! Nice boots too, they really go well. I still have my boots from my epic fail Rinoa cosplay (great for the current snowy weather I might add!) I don’t pull off the fresh faced and innocent FF girls very well but I’m looking forward to seeing more progress on this from you!

Thanks guys! The boots are actually from my old Rinoa costume and since I'm not using them anymore, I might as well use them for this!

Thanks. ^^ The artist that designed it has been disapointed quite a few times by people who said they would have done it, but didn't actually do it. Which is quite sad really. D: So, I hope I can impress her with this!

I know, it would've kept Squall company at least. :3 If she was, I would've loved to have seen her in something like this.

Armwarmers and Skirt (Posted 11th June 2011)

I've hand sewn all the white parts on both the armwarmers and all in all, it's taken me about a week and a half to do both of them. All I've got to do now is get some more white material or try and use some from what I've got to do the detailing on the shoes. Hopefully it should work! *fingers crossed*
Oh. And I also need to sort out the white belt.
