I LOVE Rosso the Crimson. I think she's absolutely gorgeous and when I started playing Dirge of Cerberus -Final Fantasy VII-, I wanted to cosplay someone from it. My first choice was Shalua, but my sister's friend beat me to it and looks amazingly like her, and my second choice was Shelke, but I'm too tall to be her and the sister of my sister's friend was going to be her. D: Then I wanted to be Nero, but I'm too...um, "endowed" for that, seeing as he's a guy and wears skintight clothing. XD; So, I settled on Rosso, and after that I realised how much I loved her.
On this costume's debut, it wasn't completely finished (I was still up at 2am on con morning desperately trying to finish it!), but I finished what I could and it looked good, in my opinion. :) I got complimented by loads of people on both my costume AND my weapon, so that made me very happy. I didn't think I'd be recognised by that many people, but I was, surprisingly! :D
I've since finished the costume, and the photographs you see here are of the completed version. :) I haven't got many photographs of the completed version, but I've had quite a few people asking me to don Rosso again for Dirge of Cerberus groups, so no doubt there'll be more photographs in the future!
