Character: Rinoa Heartilly from Final Fantasy VIII
Seamstress/Model: Tess [cupcake-rufflebutt]
Photography/Editing: Ollie [orobouros.net]
Location: Anime Next 2007

Construction Notes:
My main downfall with Rinoa, and one that commonly plagues Rinoa cosplayers, was my inability to secure the correct ribknit for her duster. You can see in this detailed shot that the weight of the fabric is actually much too thin, though I did manage to find fabric with ribbing semi-comparable in width to hers. I did sponge-paint the skirt myself, since hers has a mottled colouring that I was unable to find pre-existing in denim. Costume and wig constructed/styled by myself.

You make a beautiful rinoa! I quite like the character but then again that's based purely on what I saw of her from dead fantasy xD I have recently downloaded all FF's (I to IX but not III and IV) for ma psp and am working through in order so will be a while before I get to you :/ looking forward to VI the most :3

Oh, you're missing my favourite! FFIV is AMAZING. Definitely play it sometime. (And thank you for the comment! <3)

But IV would cost as much as it cost me for all the others together xD when the price drops xxx you're always welcome xx <3

I have to admit I don't really like Rinoa. But this is beautiful.

I'm not the biggest Rinoa fan, either. I mostly made her because a few of my friends wanted to cosplay from the game.

Thats a very pretty picture. You have such a soft and peaceful expression on your face. I think its the expression that makes me like this picture so much. You make such excellent costumes.
