Costume Information

Finally i got to cosplay Tifa!
I personally feel i look alot more like her than any other character i have cosplayed.. Maybe? I love being Tifa.

As much as i hate the lack of confidence i have in this cosplay, im very pleased with the way it turned out.

The costume isnt made from scratch. Its made from clothes i found in charity shops etc and altered. The gloves though are stuffed by myself, and boots painted.
Im very pleased with how it turned out.

UPDATE- New skirt, arm warmers, boot adjustments, wig styling, new armour!

I didnt know my groin was in the picture untill i uploaded it :S
And i like the picture so i didnt want to take it off? hopefully it didnt ruin it too much? Just try and ignore the groin-ness. Silly short skirt!! The other pictures i have tried to cover with my arm, i thort it was a Tifa pose which was why i did it, i had tights on too, im sorry if i offended anyone! :(

by FairyPorchQueen on Thursday, 14 May, 2009 - 13:16

I honestly don't see how the shot entitled "Victory" shows any more of the costume than the other two shots in the same pose. That's the shot I have the most issue with, it just seems unnecessary to me. The other shots aren't as bad, but they're still a little dodgy. I'm sure you can get that pose without the panty flash, I've seen quite a few cosplayers do it.

Well the angle is compleatly different for a start? And my legs look less stumpy, as Tifa has very long legs :S there are thousand of shots from the game where you accidently see her underwear, and they are white which is even more obvious? If it really bothers you i can blur the groin out? I mean you cant see anything, it probably wouldnt of looked as bad if i hadnt worn tights... but it was very cold.

You make a beautiful Tifa. The wig is amazing, I am looking for a similar one for my Pocahontas costume do you mind if I ask where you got it from (I spent a stupid amount of money on one already I was very disappointed with the quality)
Can't wait to see this at the Expo!

oooo Pocahontas yay i love that film! ^__^
The wig itself isnt too bad, unfotunatly its not great quality either, and moults quite alot, so its very delicate but if your not sort of pulling it around too much it should be ok :) but It was only 75p from ebay, it came from china which is why in the end the postage cost about £13 i think it was, which still isnt bad for a wig of that length and it actually fits my head(i had a very small head)
I hope this helps :)

Cant wait to see you either :)

Have to agree with Kazz, less tights/pants shots would be good, I think the angle is a wee bit inappropriate especially when the site caters to younger viewers. The over all costume is better than many, perhaps a brown wig though?

I agree with what my friend has said to me, some people are paying to much attention, and its barely noticable, he didnt even notice untill he saw what she wrote. Tbh its tifa, thats whats shes like i didnt purposly do it, and my sister wouldnt of tried to take a sleezy photo. Younger viewers susly wouldnt be paying attention to that anyway? There are far worse things for them to see on the internet.

But anyway thank you for your input platinum, The wig is very dark, it has a very very slight brown to it :)

These will also be the only pictures i will have up of this costume i think. As i probably wont be cosplaying with it much.

Yeah I didn't notice at all until i saw that post lol, She's right it's Tifa were talking about here the skirt is really short yeah but its accurate and true to the game :3 What about the people that cosplay as Yoko? lol thats child friendly?. Awesome cosplay btw.

Great Tifa. I think you really look the part. I have to say though I do really agree with Kazz. The other photos look great but I find the one that shes mentioning a little wrong. I understand that its close to the character but agree it may cause probs for younger members. Other than that great cosplay you have it spot on.

Great Tifa!

It's far better than the one I threw together in a couple of days - a last minute additional costume for Amecon so it's not as nice as yours.
I looked around for red lace up boots but couldn't find any so I ended up wearing black ones - I didn't think about painting some!
Doink! XD

Well done you :-)
