Tifa Lockheart (Version 1) - Final Fantasy VII/Dissidia 012 Duodecim



Photos

 


Information

This costume all started when my my brought a top home that i thought i could edit for tifa, and i did XD.

I love tifa in final fantasy VII, she is amazing, kind and strong, i always loved her in the game, her personality in advent children really put me off her.
I do like her outfit in final fantasy VII though even though some people don't understand that tifa only wears something like this because she was meant to be the opposite of aerith in appearance XD.

Lol i thought this costume was going to be easy, but it seems to be harder than i originally thought.

23/1/10 - I love this version of tifa, and have been working on her costume for a couple of weeks, so finally today i have put up some progress pictures, Tifa may end up going to kitacon if fusion can't go to kitacon as i have already brought my ticket there and have to go ><, Terra won't go to kitacon if fusion can't Because basically the plan was for me to do in game Terra and for her to do In Game Celes from final fantasy VI, but if fusion can't go then there is no point in me taking terra and she will be put aside for a photoshoot. SHall have to see i guess.

29/01/10 - And a photoshoot for this costume has been comfirmed and will be done by the awesome TheMagicalLucy, so thank you so much ^^.

This Costume was worn friday night and sunday for kitacon 2

Zelda posted on 10 December, 2009 - 17:55

thats an awesome earing :D

Zelda posted on 31 December, 2009 - 16:11
Aww thank you, though it is rather heavy XD.

FairyPorchQueen posted on 1 January, 2010 - 19:48
aww hehe well it looks great im sure it worth the discomfort! ^__^

Zelda posted on 1 January, 2010 - 19:49
Lol all i can say is, it better be XD. Will start on her gloves hopefully.

FairyPorchQueen posted on 1 January, 2010 - 19:56
hehe Im sure it will be ;) Aww i loved doing my gloves so much fun lol

Zelda posted on 1 January, 2010 - 20:04
Lol well your tifa is amazing and i can't wait to see it at expo, only problem i have with this costume is the lack of clothing XD.

FairyPorchQueen posted on 1 January, 2010 - 20:13
Hehe thanks :) needs a wig upgrade though! Which is in progress atm. Argh yes!! its scary, i havent worn it in public yet going to be scary stuff >__<

Zelda posted on 1 January, 2010 - 20:19
You have nothing to worry about, you look amazing in your pictures, and your going to look amazing on the masquerade compared to me, as i will look like an orange XD Oh your doing a different wig for your tifa? or you just working on the same wig?

FairyPorchQueen posted on 1 January, 2010 - 20:29
eeee i just need to get my belly a bit more toned and i will be much happier hopefully..her short skirt is a bit scary though huh?! I find that my braces make it ride up ahahha. No no! i think you will look lovely, you make a great Tifa, and a great Aeris of corse! Well the wig i have is very good, but not long enough :( im hoping the one i have my eye on will fit my head perfect like the one i currently have!

Zelda posted on 1 January, 2010 - 20:33
Yeah her skirt ><, lol if she was real i would ask "how on earth did you battle in that outfit XD" And thank you that's sweet, though in may it should be fun wearing an orange bodysuit lol XD. Oh is it not long enough? =[ well it still looks amazing to me, and yeah lets hope it fits, the first aerith wig i got came from china so they make them small, so the wig was king of painful to wear ><.

FairyPorchQueen posted on 1 January, 2010 - 20:43
The suit wil be well worth it ^__^ shes too cute i do love Garnet, are you doing long hair? Not quite long enough sadly,i want it longer haha, will cover me more!! I hope it does, wigs are always to big for my head and cover my ears and make it hard to hear, and really hurts them after a while :S i have a freakishly small head so small will be good ^_^

Zelda posted on 1 January, 2010 - 20:47
Garnet will be fun to do hehe, should be fun on the masquerade together, and yes i will be doing her with long hair because i love her long hair ^^, gotta start making the blue clip to wear at the bottom of the hair, and then a gold one for sunday when i do queen garnet. Will you do the dolphin tail at the end of your new tifa wig?

FairyPorchQueen posted on 1 January, 2010 - 20:51
oooo i cant wait! Yea her long hair is lovely! Oooo cant wait to see some pics of that :D I will be doing the dolphin tail ^__^ maybe not to the extent of hers in the game hhaha, might have to be a bit more toned down, bit more realistic?

Zelda posted on 1 January, 2010 - 20:54
Yeah her hair is lovely. . . just like tifa's lol XD, and no matter how you do the dolphin tail, it will look lovely! I can't wait to see your new wig, sounds so exciting ^^!

Zelda posted on 23 January, 2010 - 10:50
Hehe, I can't wait to get started on the wig ^^ and now the suspenders are done and are exactly like tifa's. I can't wait to see some progress of your tifa to ^^. I Think FairyPorchQueen was my inspiration for this costume, i adore her cosplays especially her tifa ^^.

sjbonnar posted on 23 January, 2010 - 11:48
Looking fantastic so far ^_^ But then, you make an amazing Tifa anyway!

Zelda posted on 23 January, 2010 - 11:56

Zelda posted on 23 January, 2010 - 14:31
Thank you so much ^^, it's no where near as good as yours though, hoepfully the gloves will be sorted out soon, as there looking a bit big for my hands, and the wig will be done once the base wig gets here and the other bits for it. ^^

The Tifa Returns

Ahhh yes i have decided to rewear her for one of the days of London mcm expo otober 2010 and maybe for the cosplay fever launch party. Last time i used an immense amount of hairspray for the dolphin blow. Now i know how to do the dolphin blow and keep it up ^^ so will be cleaning the wig up a bit. And re adding velcro to the places it is required =D.

To be warn with my friend who is redoing barret for me again ^^ yaaaaaaay!!

Tifas foot guard

Made the same way as my tifa arm guard, paper mache, and cardboard, this sticks by velcro which is on the foot guard and the shoes i will be waering as tifa, at least once there painted.

23rd January 2010

Tifas arm guard

Made of simple paper mache, cardboard and a layer of soft foam so i could bend it into shape before paper macheing it. if anyone wants to know then do feel free to ask me, after a couple of layers it was strong enough and when i wear it . . it so rock hard it really does feel like armour! Once it was dry i painted it, painted some 3d round stickers, and stuck them ontop for the effect tifa&amp;#039;s arm guard has. Now i have to put velcro on the ribbon i have attached to the arm guard so i know it will stay on my elbow without coming off and breaking &amp;gt;&amp;lt;.

Tifa Ref

Now loads of people do tifa different waya, because there is 2 main pieces of official art of her, same as aerith. The official art from back in the Ps1 game, and the new official art of the characters in high definition, I am basing my tifa on the old official art or known as the original. There are many differences between the old and new art, and i love the dolphin tail at the end of her hair, so i have to do original tifa ^^.
