Costume Information

Rikku has been one of my favourite characters for a long time, but most of her costumes are really skimpy so have been in to much of a panic over cosplaying her, But im starting to get some confidence back so i think im gunna do the versions i really want to do of her. This is one of them, In my opinion, all the black mage deigns are epic! I would like to have a go at yunas black mage at some point to, but rikku socking in this are just <3 WANT!!!! XD.

I think with all the varients i want to do, im just gunna have to do a full rikku con weekend haha XD, anyway don't know when i will do this as i already have 3 versions of rikku planned for this year, maybe for october if i have time :/. . will have to seeeeee!!

"Im gunna put you in a cast, and i don't mean the broken bone kind GET IT!!"

Great work here. As odd as it sounds, I love that hat. Just gotta love a hat like that, but the rest of the costume looks great as well.

To-Do List



Wig progress (Posted 21st May 2011)

Here is some wig progress, The plaits were done by me, by taking hair from the ponytail extension itself, and then glued into place.

The beads are made of homemade playdough i made myself along with food colouring :3
