Tifa Lockhart (Original) - Final Fantasy VII


Ayacon 2011




Since Tifa has always been a favourite FF VII character of mine, I thought what better way to express my admiration than by cosplaying her. My first ever costume was of her AC outfit (that was a mistake) but I actually prefer her original one, sometimes keeping it simple works;, and it certainly does for Tifa.

Worn at: London MCM Expo May 2009- Saturday
Ayacon 2011 -Friday

Sneaky peak of my new wig!

I forgot how bad i am at wig styling, there i was thinking Tifa's wig would be simple but boy was i wrong. Fringes are the worst thing for me, i end up cutting them too short....which was exactly what i did with this one and made a bit of a mess but somehow i saved it a little. If i get time i'll add some extra wefts to the end of the ponytail but when i wear this i'll also make sure its all securely pinned to my head (in the photo it was quickly thrown on haha) I'm just relieved i finished faffing with it today as i have another wig for a different costume to do next...god i'm dreading it now lol

My stupid 'wig' face always makes me laugh lol

Still in progress...

Can't believe how laid back i've been about this costume, and yet I have under a month to get this finished O_O
Since I'm an idiot i wont be able to purchase the wig i really want for this, I've left it too late for long haul shipping so i'm going to buy the same wig again (as the old one is too floopy)
On the positive, I've completed her top, made it from scratch with some lovely t-shirt fabric, its so soft and scretchy! I tweeked my gloves a little more and am now working on the skirt again by adjusting the length and tidying the hem.

Really can't wait to finish this costume! I love cosplaying Tifa, i just pray i get my wig and find a pair of chunky boots in time.

P.S I had red eyes in this photo, and when i cleaned them up it made them browny. Haha reminds me I also need to get contact lenses.

Tifa Mark II in progress

I thought it was about time I revived my original Tifa cosplay! She's one of my all time favourite FF characters and her outfit is reasonbly comfty to prat around in soo i shall be wearing this at Ayacon 2011. (My first Aya and probably will wear this on the friday)
Anyways, I've been working on her gloves and arm warmer thingys for the past week or so, pulling apart the old ones and replacing bits and pieces...also i finally switched the gloves around as i'd made them wrong before and god it bugged me when i saw photos O_O but now, its all better ^^

I also spent a little time adding some small buckles to my braces, for a little more accuracy, can't believe how easy it was to attach them actually. Next up I need to get a new top as the old one just isn't right...i'll try and make one from scratch this time (as its a really simple top, clearly i was just lazy before) and I'm also on the hunt for some new boots (with more eyelets...3 eyelets look lame) and a new wig as the old one has lost its elasticity...so its basically died....sad times.
