Costume Information

I originally wanted to to Tifa from Final Fantasy VII but my friends insisted that i did Aeris, as we had a sort of 7 group which consisted of Zack and Sephiroth so i decided i would and do Tifa at another time.

It was a very fun costume to wear, And i felt it went successfully, i loved being Aeris and having her crazy hair!

I have completly re-made most of this costume now(remake is shown in my photos) so it is much better than the one i had before!
I am slighty annoyed at the fact that i forgot to put the ribbon on the bottom of my plat for this shoot, But its ok.Its a shame that my contacts this time werent bright enough to work atall for the photos.

This costume is RETIRED.

The hair made me laugh, oh square and your super spikeh fringes.

Less leg though please, I doubt Aerith would walk around sectors showing that much, she'd be taken to the brothel and sold for 5g.

Silly square and their impossible hair!!

Note; Aeris has a huge slit up the front of her skirt where the buttons arent done up, i didnt get my legs out, they came out because of the slit up the front? Thats what happens when you sit down doesnt happen when i stand :)

You make a great aeris can see youve put alot of effort into the costume ^^,
I dont see a problem with the split? That is what she has after all. I think it all looks great ^^
