25th March 2012: Okay, so THIS is the final part SILLY ME! I forgot the feathers. NOW it is finished~! XD;

24th March 2012: Final piece The final part of this outfit is now in place. Goggles, modified and attached; CHECK~

14th March 2012: Bits and bobs Boots, shorts, webbing thang and glove. Well, hopefully that should be obvious...!

8th March 2012: Moddy Boots Nearly finished on the boots. Sewing through 3 layers of leather FFFFFFFF my thumbs. T^T

3rd March 2012: CHUNKY Arm bands/belts/strappy things. Oddly NOT as uncomfortable as I thought they would be. If my hands turn blue, though, please let me know~ ^_^V

3rd March 2012: These boots were made for walking But only if you're a size 6. Unfortunately I had to buy a pair that were a couple of sizes too big, since I don't have much choice and time. =/ I'll be modding these completely.

2nd March 2012: Who likes short shorts? ....not me. So these aren't cut as high as they should be, but they're still short enough to be nearly obscene. XD;; Well, I have a lot of ass to accidently flash....*facepalm*
Anyway, this is clearly a progress shot of me altering the shape of the shorts and adding the FUCKNOMOREOFTHISSHIT trim...which I made from scratch....X_X So many hours. Numb.
BUT. The shorts are actually now finished.
All I need to work on now is the boots, gloves and goggles....and worry about my hair.

2nd March 2012: Belt up, Rikku~ Belt complete-o. Pretty happy with it, but took a frustratingly long time to make since it took so ruddy long to source a double-pronged belt buckle. Who'd have thought! >__<;

16th February 2012: Top complete As the titale says. All finished. Made the flappy bits at the back removable, for storage and packing.

2nd February 2012: Top Nearly complete. I've been chipping away very gradually at this top....it looks so simple, but \i've been finding the collar to be a total bee-atch. >_<

14th January 2012: Top so far Just a progress report for the top. It's been a lot easier to make it fit my shape than I thought it would be. Unfortunately I'll probably still have to start again as I made the neck hole on this one far too wide to put the collar around...well, i'll try anyway. (Green shorts pictured are not the ones I'll be using.....unless I have some kinda clothing emergency!)
...Ugh. Flabby mishapen legs are flabby and mishapen. I need to tone up. T^T

29th December 2011: Vest top Making a start on the top.....basically making 2 at the same time as i acn't decide which material to use yet. one is a better colour but doesn't stretch and the other is a stretchy one that's way too dark. Choices, choices!

21st December 2011: Make-up test Probably doesn't seem very different to normal but I DID change things a little. XD Also had to add that little scar/dimple thing and....black out some teeth. LOL! I REALLY loved the idea of ding that, but in practice I realise it makes me look like some withered old hag!!!!
I'm going to need to experiment with that....

Yay you'll be brilliant! Hope you didn't feel like you had to do a FFX cosplay ... but I really always thought you'd make a great Rikku! ^_^

You're going to make a really cute Rikku! I love her costume a lot, so many bits that look like they'll be fun to make :3 Plus goggles!

The blacked-out teeth look cool, though! Also, is that your natural eye colour in the make-up test photo? Even if you don't go with spiral contacts your iris colour is perfect. I agree with Ino that you're going to make a great Rikku.

and it was so, that when all was sewn and done, you do make a great Rikku. Did you do anything to weather the oven-mitt? My eye keeps wandering back to it in the most recent photo, the texture looks really interesting and authentically lived-in. I hope the hair-dying goes well!

Thankyou~! =D

@birds; Thanks so much! XD It's a cotton glove and plain cotton drill that I attempted to dye a specific shade by combining a few colours together. It didn't turn out as planned (it came out streaky and blotchy)...but I'm rather glad, since I actually prefer this outcome. XD; And thanks again!

firstly, thank you for the lovely comment on my Rikku. and secondly- dont be intimidated!!! I'm REALLY kind of freaking about wearing the X-2 costume as I've gained a bit weight and desperately trying to get rid of it in time lol. So definitely no need to feel intimidated by my Rikku!! I dont think I suit her at all!!! But cosplaying her anyway! Also, Your Rikku looks ACEFACE!!! The hair is perfect for this version of her too!
