Costume Information

Description
Another Rinoa cosplay to add to the list, being a fan I couldn't leave this out! Not really keen on the hair and boots in this but overall the design is rather cute.
I doubt I'll bother with the gunblade (don't really like the design and it's only shown in one image) but if I want a prop I'll use my Dead Fantasy one.

"Late 2004 to early 2005 Square held a competition to see who would make the best fanart following the theme "FFanything-2". The winner would get their design turned into a pixel rendition. The winner of the competition was a video game designer by the name of Dion Rogers aka MUNCH. His submission was a conceptual design for the Final Fantasy VIII character Rinoa Heartilly if she was to appear in Kingdom Hearts II. The art had been dubbed "The drawing which launched a thousand cosplays"."

~Please see my journals for more details on the construction of this costume as well as progress photos~


I'm probably going to cut up my regular Rinoa duster (as I want a new one for that costume) and use it to make this.
