Aerith/Aeris Gainsborough - Final Fantasy VII Advent Children




Aeris is my favourite female character of all time. I was blown away with her as soon as I met her in the Church for the first time in Final Fantasy VII.

My Grandad called her Jade because at the time I was too young to figure out how to play RPG type games and seriously I've never loved a character more. I'm sorry to all the Cloud x Tifa fan girls, but how can't you see the love that Aeris holds for Cloud and vise versa?

I wanted to get anything to do with Aeris, as I have mostly all her figures nearly now. I think it was for my 14th or 15th birthday, I finally learned about cosplaying and decided to buy a costume. I saw Advent Children Aeris on e-bay and bought it straight away.

When it came I was pretty shocked, it was nothing like the photos that the seller had posted. The pink trim around the dress wasn't on, the buttons were ugly and huge and everything was too big for me. I dunno if it's because I measured it wrongly but yeah, I was really peed off, espically for the price.
I think this costume is going to always be a one I'm going to be constantly trying to make better, because Aeris is my baby.

Possibly in the future I might get the whole jacket re-made as it's not as short as it could be and I don't think the same colour but we will see.

Progress Journal

20th August 2010


The dress managed to get a tiny hole near one of the button holes, of course I'm scared to sew it myself in case it's still noticable so I'm taking it to get sorted along with my Jill t-shirt.

29th June 2010


The wig came back battered a bit ahha! Also it was way to heavy for my head so I've added hair extension clips and made the bangs more up XD It looks a bit better but it still is so heavy >___<

4th June 2010


Finally got my ass to take my dress and jacket to get altered lol.

Jacket is at a different shop as the first place I went couldn't do button holes ¬_¬

Dress is getting tightened and the pink bias tape is getting re-added to the straps, the straps are going to be completey pink so then I can re-use the dress for KH Aeris in the future ^___^

24th April 2010


bought the wig :D

8th April 2010


Emmy (fairyporchqueen) is making my bow for me as I've told Demented kid not to bother as she already has my necklace and wig to do XD

and I have to say the bow looks amazing already! I also bought two more buttons today so I'll have to put them on which I'll probably do in a moment :3

20th March 2010


Going to get some buttons this Thursday, I'm quite annoyed because the shop I got them from might be closing down so if it's closed down by the time I get there will have to buy a totally different button set ¬_¬

7th December 2009


Well I might be able to go to an expo :D So I need two costumes for it, this will be one of them the other Garnet! ^___^

I have found the perfect pair of ugg style boots, with a strap already on, going across the front. BUT they've sold out online, so my bf who lives in Cambridge, nicely said he'd check the shop out next time he was by, because it's HUGE there.

So hopefully I will have them soon, also I have decided I want a wig, because my hair is growing *finally* but won't ever be perfect/long enough so wig will do. Found some cheapish ones, already pre-styled online so thats what I shall do :3!!

Also when I go and get my Garnet costume sorted, I'm going to ask them to fix the dress up, it's still baggy and the dark pink seems to be fraying a bit :3 so even more joy after Christmas <3

Also person I got the bangles comissioned from, are coming along ^_^ she is also making me a better bow so can't wait for them :3!

14th July 2009


Had jacket sleeves made tighter, as they looked really crap baggy, jacket shortened and new buttons! I feel alot happier with the look now, just need to take some picture soon ;D
