Yeah! Halloween! Raye, have you got a pic of the base for the pinwheel? I'd like to add it to things I have made for others or in this case, partly made.

@FFGamerGirl - Thank you so so much! ^_^ I am so happy to have been able to go on stage, i just hope i did the scary vampire justice! It's hard to keep in character ^^ So pleased the wings looked good :) The biting pose is exactly what i was trying to give so glad it came accross well!

I had so much fun in this cosplay :) some of the most fun in cosplay ever!

Your Yuna was so beautiful btw ^^ I caught a glimpse of you up close and your detailing is very well done!

Congrats! Can't wait to see more of your work ^_^ I have put Ashe up now as i want to do more FF girls!

@FFGamerGirl - I am going to make Ashe next ^_^ lots of work though!

And yep i saw you, believe me i was very tempted to get you - it would have been quite funny seeing Vampire Rinoa chase Gunner Yuna - everyone would shout 'gun down that fiend!'

by Raye-chan on Monday, 8 November, 2010 - 22:07

what game is this from, this version or was it your own version of her. it was great =D

This was my own creation ^_^ tehe - Rinoa does get possessed in the game itself but for Halloween I wanted to make her evil ^^ so Vampire it was!
