Foreground, drawing of a ribbon with triangular cut-out ends twisting and looping across the page; there is some sort of FF writing or runic design scrawling long the length of the ribbon down the middle of it, as the image is very small, what this design is isn't very clear.]

Motivation

FFV is one of my favourite Final Fantasy games and Krile is my favourite character from it. I want to eventually cosplay pretty much all the main Player Characters from FF5, but I'm going to start with Krile. I also want to cosplay a number of different varations of Krile which I will probably add onto this costume listing as and when I make them in an effort to keep things tidy and together; Dancer class is my favourite class and I'm an aspiring dancer/performer/circus artist irl, so it's as good a place to start as any. I may or may not have plans to cosplay pretty much every Dancer and Dancing Girl variant in the Final Fantasy Universe....
