Description
@ ShadoCon 2010 in Tampa, FL.



This is my first cosplay and sewing project.

Final Fantasy 8 is a game that really turns me to mush with it's lead characters. They're just so darn cute, and ever since it came out in 2000(I think, I was about 10 years old then), I was forever intrigued! I had always looked at other cos-players and wanted to play dress up too. So finally, years later, I mustered up the courage to try to sew and the will to make time for it all. Overall I think it ended up working out quite well for my first try!

Funny thing is, I was going to originally buy it because I'm taking 17 credit hours this semester x_x. But! I ended up hand-sewing the entire thing (except for the camisole and biker shorts) from scratch. Bought the fabric and dyed it myself about three times to get it just right! Modded some biker shorts with fully functional zippers and bought the black camisole. I don't have the weapon yet, but I'm planning to try my hand at crafting it for Megacon 2011!

Wish me luck ~.~!

This is actually a really good Rinoa, I mean one of the best. You're really nailed the costume so it's pretty much spot on.
