Vivi has always been my favourite character from Final Fantasy 9. I love his story and the Black Mage village, and I'd really like to try making his costume one day. It's going to be a challenging project because I want to somehow try to keep his costume in scale- I have a few ideas in mind but I'll have to see what works. This will probably be my first mascot-style costume.

I'm very interested to see what you come up with for the scaling on this! It's one I've wanted to do for a while for that exact reason (to make in proportion)

Lol, I am exactly the same as you and Tofu. I would love to do this but scaling is the problem. You've inspired me to attempt it! Don't know when though. Good luck! I am extremely looking forward to this, Vivi is by far the best FF character.

This is amazing! FFIX characters are so hard to pull off, proportions and all, Vivi even more so, but you have nailed it! I love this <3
