Aeris Underwater - Cosplay

The burial of Aeris Gainsborough from Final Fantasy 7. This is a sequential series of photos recreating in live action the iconic scene. I just finished replaying this part of the game, and of course I cried. I'm so afraid of how it's going to hit me in the remake!

I wonder where Cloud was standing?
