Cloud lays Aeris to rest. This was probably one of the most moving scenes for a lot of gamers who grew up playing RPGs. With the announcement of the remake, I found new inspiration to not only replay Final Fantasy 7, but to rekindle my love of cosplaying as this character.

Aeris - Adella (Sarah Quillian)

As a HUGE final fantasy fan, I absolutely LOVE this.  I remember playing the game back as a kid and watching her die in disbelief.  I remember having a mix of emotions and then thinking...who the hell is going to heal for me?...and thats when it really sank in.

October 19th, 1997...late Sunday night.

That was the first time I witnessed this tragic, heartbreaking, but magnanimous and beautiful scene. I still remember it (and everything I felt and thought when I witnessed it) like it was yesterday.

20 years later and this is still my favorite scene in all gaming, and Aerith is still my favorite girl from all gaming. You've done them both proud here!

Thank you and your friends for putting this together! Keep up the good work!

this made me giggle so much.  It does look like that I agree.  He has what we call "resting smiling face" which is the antithesis to "resting bitch face" XD!!!
