|My very first costume!|
I had no idea what to do for my first Expo, aside from it had to be Final Fantasy related. I eventually settled on Tifa, since VII is one of my favourites in the series (if not in top spot). I liked the character, plus it had the advantage of being relatively easy to put together. You know, in case the whole cosplay idea turned out to be a bit rubbish.
Yeah, that didn't happen.
Even though it's nothing particularly fancy, I still get a kick out of wearing this. It's my fall back costume for public events, really - I wore it to both Distant Worlds concerts - as you can get around London without too many strange looks...
