Raine Loire - Final Fantasy VIII




I love Raine so much! There's always something about strong and confident women I love ;) plus she's the only other person in the game (apart from Squall) referred to as the "commander".

Although her outfit is very simple it makes me want to get it exactly right even more. I don't just want to throw on a white jumper, blue jeans and yellow hairband and call myself Raine. I want to have her earrings, wedding band, anything else really as dead on as possible.

The earrings I've bought aren't the exact shape however but they're very similar. I hope the jumper is good enough since I bought it for cheapsies on eBay and it's technically a size smaller than I am. However if I'm honest it's my boobs that would stop it from fitting XD

But yus :D Everything is bought for now and I've edited the earrings so they're clip-ons (since I havent got pierced ears).

I'm very excited ^^

Will probably be taking pictures with FusionRose when she's completed her Julia cosplay =D

- Will be wearing this for May Expo 2012 on the Friday to go with Fusionrose's Laguna, numta3's Ward, and warriorteddy's Kiros :D they'll be doing the casual outfits so I can finally get some shots of my Raine! I'm gonna buy a better jumper as well and since it's winter I think I'll be able to find another one easily! yay!

Finally got a couple of photos :D It snowed very heavily last night again and I didn't want to pass up the opportunity ^^ I did want Rinoa pictures too but I thought I'd save that for when Phee could visit - Since the photographer for these was my mum (bless her =D). She look horrified when I asked her but I think she did a good job ^^ I think I might get another jumper coz this one isn't very comfy and a bit too short in the arms. But we'll see =]

19th November 2010


Everything's arrived in the post now and everything fits =D I've edited the earrings to clip on so it's alll good. I've noticed her shoes are just some black boots type so I'll wear my Rinoa boots :) Pictures up soon hopefully

Wedding Ring

I'm confused over the wedding ring now...I can't find good enough pictures to tell whether or not it has a little diamond on it. I've tried watching it also but still can't tell >.< can someone help? =[

Everything Bought!

So I've bought everything I need for her now :D I think a cosplay for £25 is pretty good! Not everything has arrive in the post though. I'm waiting for the jeans and the clip-on findings so I can edit the earrings. But then voila! And I'll try and get pictures asap.

Bits and Pieces

So tomorrow I get paid and I can buy some of the smaller things like the earrings and wedding band. I've found some good ones on ebay ^^ The jumper I was going to get is rather expensive imo so I'm going to find a cheaper one but luckily coz it's winter if I bought a jumper my mummy won't tell me off for buying it :] I just won't tell her its for cosplay mwahahaha
