Rinoa Heartilly (Original Design) - Final Fantasy VIII




Sarmander, Ino and myself thought it'd be fun to do a little cosplay for Distant Worlds. I wasn't really sure about going in full on cosplay, weren't really sure about dress codes etc, so we best concluded to do a more dressy versions of something the FFVIII gals might wear. ^_^

The dress I made was designed by moi, I had to come up with a very quick sketch/design there and then in the fabric shop after seeing what kind of fabrics were available! The majority of the design was pulled from Rinoas blue duster. I'm pretty pleased with the result as I was really pressed for time. ^^ Whew!

You keep uploading this stuff and I'm gonna keep abusing the comment button. This Rinoa-inspired dress is so elegant, but it also says something lighthearted and airy with the gauze hem and featherswirl design. Good character translation/association! Also, I know you broke time to make this garment live and that adds and extra dimension of awesome. I do like the idea of your group attending in ninja-character-homage-cosplay. So classy.

Ahaha. Sorry. I have such a backlog. XD Thankyou! Yes I'd like to do more 'ninja-homage-cosplay' in future times, maybe cook up something more challenging, it's actually quite fun! x3

don't apologise, apologizing for uploading coolthings makes no sense! Definitely you should ninja-homage-cosplay more characters in the future.

Awh man, many thanks guys. ; u ;' Your lovely comments have settled my worries! The main thing I started to question myself on was whether it's reflected the character at all.
