Terra/Tina Branford (Dissidia) - Final Fantasy Dissida


I adore Terra!!! i do i love her in Final Fantasy VI and i love her in dissidia though in dissidia she is made out to be a bit more of a wimp lol XD. Anyway i want to cosplay her, not to sure whether i will do green hair or blonde, if i do her blonde version, i can get away with using my own hair XD.

I love terra! And she is just so under cosplayed! I loved doing Amano FF6 version, and i am currently working on ff6 normal and esper form. So i thought i would cosplay her dissidia version to. Her dissidia version was pretty simple however it took a lot of time and the waist sashes were doing what i wanted them to do, so i will again get better pictures of this costume when i have time.

Hair - Hair is my own natural hair, it was nice to use my own hair for the cosplay, and was easy to style =].

Cape - Cape was simple enough to make, i got some white cotton, took the measurments of my back and cut it, then half of it was put into dark purple dylon dye, and then the other half in the sunflower yellow dylon dye.

Dress was tricky as i have a small waist but big bust o.0, dress was made to my size, then taken in at the wait area for the fitted affect. Detailing was done with dylon fabric paint, which was mixed with the shade of white otherwise they turned out to dark on the dress XD! The gold trim at the bottom was done via just hand stitching as it was to delicate to stitch with a machine.

Armwarmers - Were made with a stretchy polyester fabric, Made to my arm length, cut and then again hand stitched, They were then paointed the same way as i did the dress.

Tights - The tights were just a white pai i bought, which were then just coloured in with felt tip, i ended up wth the flower pattern all across my legs, and do not wear them in the rain @@ XD!

Boots - Boots were bought, then for the top red bit, i used craft foam, glued them to the shoe and then painted them the same colour as the boot and added the gold trim. The flowers and gold design were painted the same way, Need to find a better gold that does not chip though.

Sashes (Pink one) - The pink sash was made via cutting a piece of fabric out, then cutting the diamonds out and fabric glueing them onto the sash, my advice to you is use pink stretchy fabric, it will give you a better fit as mine was not stretchy fabric at all.

Sash (Purple one) - The purple one was made the same way as the base pink one, The white stripes were cut out of a white fabric and then stitched onto the purple sash, again my adive is get stretchy fabric other they won't fit very nicely.

Hair clip - Terra has a purple cross like hair band in her hair, all i did was get craft foam, cover both pieces in purple fabric and then stick them together, and then stich onto a hair band =].

I love those boots! the colour on them is lovley a really nice sort of faded cherry oxblood red. Good find! I find myself torn about Dissidia. Some of the designs look great, like Terra. I'd love to do one of the ff girls from the earlier games but I find myself not wanting to do Terra and like ref art is....few and far between for the others it seems >_<

Looking good~ I like the pattern on the tights. The belts are looking good too. I love the boots~

Zelda posted on 2 August, 2010 - 20:34

Terra's waist Fabrics/Belts

Using my dissidia book i studied terras waist fabrics so i could get them as close to accurate as possible, Seen from the picture she has 3 main ones to start with (from top to bottom) First one is pink with purple diamonds across it, the middleone is just a plain aqua colour and the bottom one is purple with white stripes. Underneath them all she has a plain yellow one to, and the fabric by her dagger has nothing to do with these waist fabrics, there seperate fabric attached around the dagger. Working on the purple one with white stripes as this one will take up the most time. hopefully with any luck it will be finished tonight ^^.
