Tifa Lockheart
Final Fantasy VII/Dissidia 012 Duodecim

Cosplayer: Zelda

Variant: Version 1

Status: Complete

Condition: Not Set

17th October 2010: The Tifa Returns Ahhh yes i have decided to rewear her for one of the days of London mcm expo otober 2010 and maybe for the cosplay fever launch party. Last time i used an immense amount of hairspray for the dolphin blow. Now i know how to do the dolphin blow and keep it up ^^ so will be cleaning the wig up a bit. And re adding velcro to the places it is required =D.

To be warn with my friend who is redoing barret for me again ^^ yaaaaaaay!!

23rd January 2010: Tifas foot guard Made the same way as my tifa arm guard, paper mache, and cardboard, this sticks by velcro which is on the foot guard and the shoes i will be waering as tifa, at least once there painted.

23rd January 2010: Tifas arm guard Made of simple paper mache, cardboard and a layer of soft foam so i could bend it into shape before paper macheing it. if anyone wants to know then do feel free to ask me, after a couple of layers it was strong enough and when i wear it . . it so rock hard it really does feel like armour! Once it was dry i painted it, painted some 3d round stickers, and stuck them ontop for the effect tifa's arm guard has. Now i have to put velcro on the ribbon i have attached to the arm guard so i know it will stay on my elbow without coming off and breaking ><.

23rd January 2010: Tifa Ref Now loads of people do tifa different waya, because there is 2 main pieces of official art of her, same as aerith. The official art from back in the Ps1 game, and the new official art of the characters in high definition, I am basing my tifa on the old official art or known as the original. There are many differences between the old and new art, and i love the dolphin tail at the end of her hair, so i have to do original tifa ^^.

I thought you didn't like Tifa very much

Zelda avatar

Zelda - 10th December 2009
I don't like her in advent children lol, i said she was awesome in the game XD

FairyPorchQueen - 31st December 2009
thats an awesome earing :D

Zelda avatar

Zelda - 31st December 2009
Aww thank you, though it is rather heavy XD.

FairyPorchQueen avatar

FairyPorchQueen - 1st January 2010
aww hehe well it looks great im sure it worth the discomfort! ^__^

Zelda avatar

Zelda - 1st January 2010
Lol all i can say is, it better be XD. Will start on her gloves hopefully.

FairyPorchQueen avatar

FairyPorchQueen - 1st January 2010
hehe Im sure it will be ;) Aww i loved doing my gloves so much fun lol

Zelda avatar

Zelda - 1st January 2010
Lol well your tifa is amazing and i can't wait to see it at expo, only problem i have with this costume is the lack of clothing XD.

FairyPorchQueen avatar

FairyPorchQueen - 1st January 2010
Hehe thanks :) needs a wig upgrade though! Which is in progress atm. Argh yes!! its scary, i havent worn it in public yet going to be scary stuff >__<

Zelda avatar

Zelda - 1st January 2010
You have nothing to worry about, you look amazing in your pictures, and your going to look amazing on the masquerade compared to me, as i will look like an orange XD

Oh your doing a different wig for your tifa? or you just working on the same wig?

FairyPorchQueen avatar

FairyPorchQueen - 1st January 2010
eeee i just need to get my belly a bit more toned and i will be much happier hopefully..her short skirt is a bit scary though huh?! I find that my braces make it ride up ahahha. No no! i think you will look lovely, you make a great Tifa, and a great Aeris of corse!

Well the wig i have is very good, but not long enough :( im hoping the one i have my eye on will fit my head perfect like the one i currently have!

Zelda avatar

Zelda - 1st January 2010
Yeah her skirt ><, lol if she was real i would ask "how on earth did you battle in that outfit XD" And thank you that's sweet, though in may it should be fun wearing an orange bodysuit lol XD.

Oh is it not long enough? =[ well it still looks amazing to me, and yeah lets hope it fits, the first aerith wig i got came from china so they make them small, so the wig was king of painful to wear ><.

FairyPorchQueen avatar

FairyPorchQueen - 1st January 2010
The suit wil be well worth it ^__^ shes too cute i do love Garnet, are you doing long hair?
Not quite long enough sadly,i want it longer haha, will cover me more!! I hope it does, wigs are always to big for my head and cover my ears and make it hard to hear, and really hurts them after a while :S i have a freakishly small head so small will be good ^_^

Zelda avatar

Zelda - 1st January 2010
Garnet will be fun to do hehe, should be fun on the masquerade together, and yes i will be doing her with long hair because i love her long hair ^^, gotta start making the blue clip to wear at the bottom of the hair, and then a gold one for sunday when i do queen garnet.

Will you do the dolphin tail at the end of your new tifa wig?

FairyPorchQueen avatar

FairyPorchQueen - 1st January 2010
oooo i cant wait! Yea her long hair is lovely! Oooo cant wait to see some pics of that :D
I will be doing the dolphin tail ^__^ maybe not to the extent of hers in the game hhaha, might have to be a bit more toned down, bit more realistic?

Zelda avatar

Zelda - 1st January 2010
Yeah her hair is lovely. . . just like tifa's lol XD, and no matter how you do the dolphin tail, it will look lovely! I can't wait to see your new wig, sounds so exciting ^^!
