|Originally this was my first ever Cosplay I put together and wore to my first MCM Expo experience in October 2007 <3 It was such an exciting event but the costume was rather half-hearted....and i stupidly dyed my hair black....enough said.|
But years later I've finally decided that i will actually re-make this! I got it out the cupboard recently and all the happy memories flooded back.
Was soo much fun to remake this and wear it again, i got lots of lovely compliments but didn't get many photos, i was stupid not to attend the FF Photoshoot that day. Hopefully I'll get a chance for a little photoshoot some day!

1 week to go.... (Posted 22nd October 2012)
And I have lots to do! I've been busy with any spare time i have making Tifa. I've had fun unpicking and resewing various parts of my old costume, and I'm hoping ti'll eventually all come together.
Quickest Wig styling Ever! Oh my! (Posted 5th September 2012)
I normally spend hours on end fighting with a wig to style it in some weird and wacky way, but thankfully Tifa has a nice straight forward style and cut. All i had to do was part the hair to side properly and trim a few wig strands :) I didn't want to risk cutting the fringe about so i'm going to leave it quite thick for now.
Picking up the pieces and those Darn Boots!!! (Posted 4th September 2012)
Well re-starting this costume has been on my mind for some time, as it was my very first and my skills were extremely simple back in the day. I'd like to make this more accurate and when wearing it get in character more.
