Rinoa Heartilly - Final Fantasy VIII


Rinoa is probs my favourite female FF character along with Yuna & Tifa lol. But ive always loved her costume.

The duster & arm-warmers i was planning on making myself & hope to do so in the future. The awesome Gracey (Graceydarling) was going to get me the same fabric she used for hers but the fabric place has been put of stock for a while now so gracey is very kindly lending me hers ^^

The shorts are being made from some leggings which will be cut up into shorts. I bought them for £3 from Primark. I've ordered some silver zips from an ebay seller as i havent been able to find silver ones ANYWHERE they only seem to sell gold >_> I'll then sew these into the shorts ^^

The skirt is being made using some Linen fabric i found in a denim blue colour which im gona double over so its not see-through. Then im going to sew some silver buttons onto the front which i bought from my local craft store. I also bought some black ribbon to use for my arm like rinoa.

Then im using some boots i orginally had bought for college but are perfect for rinoa xDD Im gona use my own hair although its not the exact style or colour as Rinoa but its still dark in colour & i will have a side-fringe kinda lol.

The skirt is about 98% complete lol, i just need to sew a fastener or hook&eye thingy into the back.
The shorts are also just about done, just need to sew the other zipper in xD
I'll hopefully try an post some pictures soon ^_^

=~UPDATE 2~=
Aside from making my own duster and arm-warmers costume is now complete ^_^
