Costume Information

Description
Final Fantasy X is my second favourite FF game (after VIII of course) and I think the The Sending at Kilika and the scene with Tidus and Yuna in the forest spring are two of the most beautiful cut scenes in the FF series.
I want to cosplay Yuna as I love her tradtional (with a modern twist) outfit and her pure strength of will to do what she believes is right, to not give up her journey despite knowing what will happen to her at the end.


My skirt will be more of a purple shade than blue.


"Gentle but strong, Yuna completed strenuous physical and mental training on the Isle of Besaid, following in her father's footsteps and becoming a summoner. Now, she faces a difficult pilgrimage across the lands of Spira to collect Aeons and gather strength for the Final Summoning that will defeat Sin and bring peace to the people of Spira.
As a young girl living in Spira, the "spiral of death," she has experienced firsthand the despair, destruction, and desolation that Sin brings to the people. Yuna is a kind-hearted, loyal, honest and polite humanitarian who strives to see the best in others and has a strong conviction to complete whatever task she feels is her duty to perform. She is incredibly naive, always believing the best of people, and often places the needs of others above her own, often considering her needs secondary, or less significant, than the needs of others. Described by Auron as "serious to a fault" she would often hide her feelings of fear, sadness, and desperation while encouraging others to express themselves in her place."

~Please see my journals for more details on the construction of this costume as well as progress photos~


The skirt, obi and sleeves will be commissioned.
I plan to make the rest of the outfit and her summoning staff myself.

Thank you ladies! I hope I pull her off ok ^^

Freddie- I know you are planning Lulu for Distant Worlds but when next do you think you will wear her? I hadn't planned on doing this for a while but if you don't rewear your costumes much I might have to make it sooner XD Earliest I can do is Kita I think, there's always private shoots too though =)

Journal

Boots (Posted 5th January 2013)

I don't think her boots are a suede type material and I don't like the grips on the soles and heel but these were in the sale and I knew I would regret not buying them if I struggle to find anything better in the future.

Costume on hold (Posted 27th January 2012)

Lost my job today so sadly had to cancel my commission with Tab. Im really gutted about it =( If I find something quick I can hopefully do this for Ame instead.

Yuna's bracelets (Posted 15th January 2012)

She wears 2 bracelets on her right hand. One is silver with plain, chunky links and the other is made of beads, some say pearls but in references they look more silver to me. The beaded bracelet hangs quite loose and is more likely to be seen outside her sleeve than the other.

I shall prob search ebay for similar ones.

Yuna's rings (Posted 15th January 2012)

It can be difficult to see them at times (I squint and zoom at every available image lol) but Yuna actually wears 3 rings.

On her right hand she wears a silver wishbone ring on her middle finger and a silver band with a dangling flower on her pinky. You used to be able to buy replicas of these 2 rings (shown in the image) but I cannot find them now =( I can get a plain wishbone ring on ebay, it just doesn't have the gems. The flower ring may be difficult...

On her left hand she wears a silver band with a turquoise/aqua gem on her middle finger. This is the ring most people seem to miss. I don't think i will have an issue finding this one.

Main outfit commissioned (Posted 15th January 2012)

I have commissioned KhaosKreator from Khaos Kostumes (http://khaoskostumes.com/) to make the majority of the costume. He will be making the skirt, obi and sleeves. The skirt and obi will be fully embroidered. I decided to get the sleeves commissioned as well as I haven't attempted gradient dye before.
This will be expensive but I know I will end up with a beautiful and good quality costume.

I shall be making/buying the rest of the costume myself including her summoning staff.
