I'm just wondering, has anyone here considered creating an orignal class for Yuna, Paine or Rikku? Like, whip master Rikku, or lawyer Paine (*shudders at the thought of a lawyer class*)

o_o; Why? Have you? ^^; Goodness, it's not even out here and people are making up original classes? *dies* Okay.

It would definitely be hilarious if it happened, although I'm sure whoever did would have to spend a majority of the day explaining who they are to the rest of the public. ;D

I think Rikku's default outfit could almost apply for GoGo Dancer Rikku... just lose the scarf and get some heels. ;D

Paine's already on the Dominatrix tip. LOL

Well, I didn't start yet, but I had to do a costume design for drama, of one of the seven sins. I made Lechery, and thought it would be a cool FFX2 class... just not labelled lechery, make it something else. I just wondered if anyone else did the same thing.

I made one out of an old dance leotard! Enter: Band Yuna!

Yeah...the leotard had music notes on it, so I made it skimpy (XD) and carry my flute around when I wear it!

Yuna-X2
04-13-2003, 04:37 PM
lol, thats cool! I can imagine it now. Hehheh, replace that stick thing with the flute, change the flowers to music notes... heehee, awesome.

where are you going to cosplay your original, yuna? i would sooo cosplay rikku or paine if it were an original thing. cuz the established are being terribly overcosplayed. but with reason, cuz they look great, but done to death nonetheless.

I actually thought up a lawyer Rikku this weekend lol, more so i was bored and i made a pic of a a Business style suit of Rikku's theif class, i'll post pics soon

I'm going to totally be hated by all for raining on the parade here but...

aren't there enough classes already? I mean, the existant classes cover so much ground; light, darkness, colorful, drab, plain, ornate, nekkidness, coveredness, I'm sure you could find one you like instead of making an original and then going through the painstaking process of explaing who "you're supposed to be" to everyone at a con that asks. x_x

Plus, joking or not, I think a lot of the whole "put on a business suit and call yourself an original Paine!" would be seen by a LOT of people as sheer laziness...

I'm sure your designs would be cute, and I'd love to see them, but wearing it to a con....I don't know how I feel about that. As EvilMoogleQueen said, "Too much creativity could be a bad thing..."

04-16-2003, 09:01 PM
Oh no, I definatly wouldn't wear them to a con or anything. I already have a list a mile long of actually costumes to make. I would never have the time to make them. And I agree about the putting on a business suit and passing it off as orignal would be just lazy. I just thought it would be interesting to see if anyone else had thought of it. I know that, in the last Yuna thread, we were mentioning about how Yuna almost was beating Barbie for different jobs, and we predicted a Malibu Beach Yuna... and then HotSprings Yuna turned out to be an actual costume...

Dudes if i had the time and money i would do...

Punkstar Paine hehe... not like she doesn't look like a Punk but eh... some changes here and there... there ya go

Hmm.... Summoner Rikku? ever wondered how RIkku would be as a summoner?

Devil Hunter Yuna... ok i just played Devil May Cry -_-''

Summoner Rikku? Interesting idea!

Nine
04-26-2003, 04:37 AM
Male Stripper Yuna! XD yes that's perfect.

I wanna make my own original class... I'd put thought and originality into it though~!! ^^; People wear original creations to cons all the time too.. I think its really cool to see original characters cosplayed, especially if they're pretty :)

Yuna-X2
04-26-2003, 06:51 PM
I think it would be so much fun to make a prom dress themed around a Yuna idea... It would have the big long medieval-like sleeves, and a really detailed flower design around the skirt... has to be purple, obviously... hrm... I should make that one day..

Marianne
04-27-2003, 07:11 PM
I say, if it looks good, is genuinely creative, and you can pull it off...go for it. Who cares what people think?

As for the answering of questions regarding who you are...it would be wise if you kept at least some of the original aspects, definately their hair and some design/color elements just so you are recognizable enough to avoid silly questions. And it's good to leave some of their imaginations up to themselves - some people like "getting the joke" rather than having someone spoon feed it to them.

Nine
04-27-2003, 07:45 PM
What about designing classes for those characters who were just left to rot?? Like Gambler Lulu, Singer Kimahri, Trainer Wakka, Dark Gunner Auron!

Marianne

Ooooh...how about PREGNANT Lulu...hah

LOL....Paine as a Lawyer. Talk about a "Powerful Litigator" Man, thats so funny, its great.

I see Yuna as a Kindergarden Teacher. She seems like the type who could be around and work with Children

I cant picture Rikku in any type of career, yet.

I'll post back.

Yuna-X2

Rikku could be a welfare millionaire. Thats what I wanna be. :)

I'm planning to do a variation on the pop star outfit... make it all goth and lacy... I think there are too many classes tho..and many to find sumthin you like.. And some costumes would be seen as sheer laziness i.e- Casual dress yuna, prom date rikku ...bleh~

Yuna-X2
05-03-2003, 01:36 AM
A prom one wouldn't be lazy, IMO. I'm in the process of making my grad dress, and I can just say that making one of those is NOT for the lazy. But if you mean wearing a yellow dress and saying you're a Rikku, then yeah, that just sucks.

BabiiYunie
05-03-2003, 07:28 AM
im thinking, skater yuna, skater rikku and skater paine lol. I'd love to do skater yuna! But I havent exactly got a perfect picture in my head of what they would look like

True true..thanks for clearing that up ^____^ I can understand what you mean tho...I made my prom dress and that was absolute HELL! What I meant was going to JCPenny and pulling some dress of the rack and saying, I'm prom date rikku! and your dress has no kinda element of the character...

Yuna-X2
05-03-2003, 11:27 PM
When I hear the words 'prom dress Rikku', I keep imaging Rikku in one of those Lil Kim dresses... or lack there of dress. lol. But I should draw out my idea with the Yuna prom dress.... it would be pretty....

"Hi, i'm Hooker Yuna Barbie!" o_O; Buy for only $19.99 when you purchase Firefighter Rikku, Shoney's Waitress Paine, Garbage Man Wakka, and McDonalds Manager Tidus! Would you like fries with that, sir?

Anyway, I think it would be cool if you kept *some* of the original aspects so that people would *somewhat*recognize who you are. Even if they couldn't without you telling them, it wouldn't be that big of a deal. I mean, there are going to be people at cons dressed as characters you might not know because you haven't watched that particular anime. Not everyone has to know who you are for them to appreciate your craftsmanship.

Muaha.... *wonders if she could convince someone to do a Popstar Tidus* >3

Muahahaha! D00ds.... Yuffie suggested Popstar Bliztball team... but what about Garage Band? Buahaha.... *pictures Emo Tidus*

yeah... I mean, there's not supposed to be "Doctor Yuna" or "Lawyer Paine."

it's supposed to be FF classes...right??? So gambler, mage, summoner, thief, etc. is fine... but I agree, it's overboard with like, "Malibu Beach Rikku." okay??

Yuna-X2
05-05-2003, 02:37 PM
It's just a bit of fun. I mean, if you want to take this all seriously, go ahead... but it's not ment to be serious.

Oh, should we call it "Malabu Beach Yuna", or "Hot Springs Yuna"? Cause there is SUCH a difference between the two. :/

And watch, when you walk into otakon, you'll see someone dressed in lab coat with a blood pressure cuff, and when they walk by, you'll see Yuna's ponytail thing hanging down... LOL

I wouldn't put it past people to not do something like that... I'm just bracing myself for the best...or worst.

Soon enough I'm going to go to AX and see someone cosplaying as yuna who cosplaying as rikku who is in a pop-idol outfit and doing lines on the glass table in the lobby. Or better yet, maybe someone will cosplay as yuna crossdressing as squall and holding a really big gunblade to compensate for smaller things. :)

FFX-2 beach volleyball was bad enough.. are we gonna see a "FFX-2 characters night out on the town @ AX03" thread too? gee, why don't i just throw on a yuna wig, lingerie, and some KY jelly and make some hot FFX-2 action at AX too? Ooh Oohh!! *raises hand* If I wear a yuna wig and some cute fully PJs, will I be sleepy-time yuna?

holy GOD people. you all amuse me so.

Holy negativity. Its too bad you all take everything seriously. Like, come on guys, it is all just fun. Do we remember what that word means, fun? I mean, for some people, the idea of designing a costume is just as fun, maybe even more fun as just copying one. I know that I prefer to make a costume my own as opposed to be the same damn thing as everyone else. This thread didn't ask "Hey, lets all make orignal classes to take to conventions!" or "Hey, lets turn FFX2 into Barbie!". Although, I bet half of you felt that FFx2 was "overboard" with the dress spheres, so I'm wondering whats the difference really, except for the fact that one is in the game, one isn't.

So I'm sorry for asking if anyone else here has any imagination. I can see that the majority of you are confined to making costumes that have been predesigned, which is a shame and a waste of many of your talents I bet.

I've been following this thread for amusement value, but I have to speak up here. I resent the implication that those of us who do not design original costumes are less talented, or using our talents less well, or have less imagination, than those who don't. I don't consider translating designs from a screen to reality to be "confining," and I'm quite proud of my sewing skills AND all of the creative problem-solving, adjusting and customizing that make it possible to make an animated costume real.

I further note that the completed costume in your own gallery is a reproduction of one from a video game.

05-08-2003, 05:02 PM
woah woah. ^_^;; i think what Yuna-X2 meant was that if others completely refuse to even try to design something of their own, she thinks it would be a waste of talent.

i really dont think she was saying " people who dont invent their own things are lazy and unimaginative ", but rather that she thinks we're all very talented and should be more open-minded and creative, otherwise she'd be insulting all cosplayers and the activity of cosplaying all-together, including herself which really makes no sense. ^_^;;

*back on-topic*

>>If I wear a yuna wig and some cute fully PJs, will I be sleepy-time yuna?

actually...i think as long as whatever you create has a reference to the character, then yeah, sure. ^_^;; i mean, if you have her wand symbol as buttons or the zanarkand logo plastered all over them, then why not? XD *starts getting several several several....cosplay ideas*

Yuna
05-08-2003, 06:16 PM
If people can have the creativity and option to chose to do this, then others can have the option to not approve. There are enough FFX-2 classes to choose from, so if you want to create your own, be prepared for critisizim. If you don't want to deal with it, then don't do it.

Lady Ava
05-08-2003, 06:49 PM
What if you saw a moditfied version of Yuna's normal summoner outfit? My sister gave me this beautiful doujinshi with all the FF characters in a medivel revamp of their outfits. Its the same outfit, just a few things added onto it. I am planning on doing the one for Yuna because its a pretty remake of the original summoner's outfit. So, calling it "Medivel Yuna" would be suitable for it. I guess:thumbsup:

LMFAOOO!!! MUST!! NOT!! WET!!! PANTS!! LAUGHING!!!

That is great! XD Amazingly hilarious! I feel so loved!

In reply to what Limeyaku said, that is exactly what I meant by keeping original aspects of the outfit. What's wrong with "sleepy time yuna" if you did it like that? Now "bath time Yuna", i.e. a towel, would not cut it.

And as Yuna said, if you're up for the challenge, go ahead and try an original class. Just be prepared for a lot of questions and explaining to people who you are. If you don't want to be doing a lot of that, I would stick to the original.

Yuna-X2
05-08-2003, 07:15 PM
Limeyaku is exactly right in seeing what I am saying. I think everyone on here has LOADS of talent. I mean, I look at the pictures of your costumes and I'm in complete awe. And I know that some people do think that making an orignal costume when there are so many to choose from already is just crazy or odd. I guess it is just hard to maybe translate sarcasm or something when it is typed...

Ah well. I didn't mean to offend anyone by making them think I said they have no talent...

*Back on the orignal topc*

I LOVE THAT PICTURE! Hehheh, Burgerking Tidus, classic.

This is the design I've been coming up with since someone said the idea of "Prom Yuna". it's not completly finished, and its just using the orignal FFX costume idea with the purple, yellow and white. I also made the straps cross over the chest like the white thing in the summoner costume, and I'm working on drawing the vines all around the bottom instead of just one side. I'm still trying to figure out how to incorperate the symbol off the main wand/staff thing onto it... maybe just as earings or something... yeah.

Ick....I just shuddered at that remark. No one should have to worry about creating something without someone standing over them judging it unless they themselves, asked for the approval. I really hope that's not what you meant.

Yuna
05-08-2003, 08:08 PM
No, that's not what I ment. No where in my statement did I say anything about gaining anyone else's aproval. Critisism, yes, approval no. There is a destincct difference. I also never said anything about someone judgeing something. No one's telling you NOT to create your own thing, it just seems silly to many of us because there's already a plethora of costumes on can make without confusing the masses even more. If you're going to make any costume at all, ever, you better be open to critisism, or else don't cosplay.

Ihrie
05-08-2003, 08:16 PM
Well, critisizm and and judgement go hand in hand really, judgement can be good, and so can critisizm, just like they can both be bad. I just don't think anyone should have to deal with negativity about their cosplay, because no one else really has any place *saying* anything negative to the person about. Everyone's free to think and feel how they want to, but sometimes it's best to leave some things unsaid for fear of hurting someone's feelings ^_^

Yuna
05-08-2003, 08:22 PM
Okay, you're missing the point of this thread. This thread is asking what you think about FFX-2 original class cosplay. People are stateing the opinions, they're not attacking anyone, they're just saying how silly they think the idea of original FFX-2 cosplay is. However, they're being met it negativity by certain members who want to do that cosplay. This thread isn't about judgeing cosplayers, cause I could argue to the death that everyone is a critic, but that's not the point of the thread.

Many FF fans are against the idea of a sequal to a said FF game period. This means those fan who aren't, and thus cosplay it, are going to be critisized by those against it. Now, creating your own costumes that aren't even official to an already exstremely controversial game is opening up a HUGE can of worms. People are going to critisize whether you don't aprove of critisism or not.

Ihrie
05-08-2003, 08:51 PM
I'm not missing the point. And I'm not trying to attack you in anyway, so don't feel that I am.

I just don't feel that people's own personal cosplaying ideas should have to meet with people's critisism. The question was, I was wondering if anyone here considered creating a class. Not if anyone here LIKED the idea of creating a class. Which of course is still an acceptable thing to say. I just think things like, it's too barbie-ish are kind of insulting to what they're trying to do. And that's my opinion. And people creating classes shouldn't have to feel like they were just compared to Mattel. If someone takes that seriously and takes offense they have the right, they shouldn't be prepared to defend themselves on something that was anti-the topic of the thread.

Miyu
05-08-2003, 09:01 PM
OH MY GOD! THE POINT! WE'RE MISSING IT!

here's my opinion: i don't care how much ya'll like cosplaying FFX-2. it annoys me. its overdone, and this thread is proof of how huge the cry is for putting an "original" twist on cosplaying the characters.

here's and idea! FIND SOMETHING ELSE TO COSPLAY! wow, that's an incredible concept. O_O holy shit, i think we might be on to something here....

ok so MY point is that you should ALL just STOP cosplaying FFX and FFX-2 to please ME, because I said so. :D

hahhaa. *dies*

Ok, ok, c'mon now ^_^

1) Some people feel that making original FFX-2 designs are convoluting an already huge myriad of costumes. Also, that if you're going to do something controversial, prepare to get critisized.

Rebuttal to 1) Just because you CAN critisize, doesn't mean you should. If you don't like what they're doing or saying, then why not just not say anything? What does it prove to take the time and energy to put down their ideas? I think it's a waste since it only thing it could accomplish is to hurt someone else. They aren't going to listen because it makes them happy and they're having fun. Why not just let it be? What would it hurt even if they did commit some cosplay faux pas? Are people THAT anal these days? o.o Cosplay is for fun, not beaurocracy and rules! Let's not forget that!

2) Some feel original FFX-2 cosplay is a creative and funny take to a bubbly and almost-making-fun-of-itself game.

Rebuttal to 2) Bah, I have to say I agree^_^ It's already been stated here that craftmanship is what counts^_^ If you throw on a dress off the rack, then yeah, that's lazy, and you should be shot, ne?^_~ But hey, people make up their own manga characters and don't mind explaining who they are all day long^_^ Plus, I dunno about you, but I wouldn't mind telling someone I was Denny's Busboy Tidus with a straigth face and walk away XD Because, the MAIN POINT, is that this is all in fun^_^ It's not hurting anyone, it's not upseting anyone, it's all in fun. So, even if you DO grab a yellow dress and become Prom Rikku, after we're done with the hot oil and the flogging, at least you'll have the fun of wearing it for awhile^_~

3) Some feel that FFX and FFX-2 are overcoslpayed anyway.

Rebuttal to 3) Hell yeah they are^_^ But, who cares?^_^

*applauds* wow. thats very very very well said! XD

and cosplay shouldnt matter whether the character is overcosplayed or not, if i like a design or really love the character imma do it anyways and most of us will. and chances are people will still take your picture and say how nice it is.

hey, I have an idea! Why doesnt EVERYONE just accept that everyone else has an opinion! and that they always will! and that everyone can't agree all the time! and someone will always have something negative to say and we should deal with it! and someone always has something positive and supportive too, and we should be thankful! so we shouldn't preach! and we should all go eat ice cream and sew instead of turning this thread into a huge 60-minutes-esque debate of death with the same, redundant points repeated over and over, okay? :D

God, I am so resisting the urge to preach here, really. I'm seriously digging my nails in my skin to keep myself to exploding. It's just amazing how it's all fine and dandy for people to all LIKE something, but it's a totally different story when people don't. Don't ask for opinions if you don't like that not everyone is going to have the same opinion as you.

No one is telling you NOT to cosplay an original version of any character, people are just saying what they think of it. No one is judging the cosplayer, they're judging the idea. Personally, I think it's a defimation of Yuna's character to see some cosplayer walking around as "Laywer Yuna." All the classes they have in the games have a purpose. Even the songstrus class - it's a support class which means that it can cast status effects on enemies and/or cure status elements on your party. WTF would Lawyer Yuna do? Badger the feind to death? But that's just my opinion. I'm not telling NOT to cosplay it, I'm just saying I think the idea is rather stupid. If it floats your boat do it. Don't jump down my throat, however, because I don't like it and I say so. Not everyone liked going to war, but we did it anyway reguardless of how many people thought it was shit.

Okay, you're missing the point of this thread. This thread is asking what you think about FFX-2 original class cosplay.

Actually, it was asking if anyone had considered it...

So, how about this, lets not be asking if you think it's right, wrong, or any opinion on the idea of doing it, perhaps it could just be to show costume ideas, instead of the thread just going on as flame after flame.

I really like the picture of the Burger King Tidus. I think it's cute. Some of the ideas at the beginning of the thread are really funny, and definatly not ment to be serious. My faves are the Band Yuna idea, Colourguard Paine, and Summoner Rikku... oh yeah, and my all time favourite is definatly the Boyband Blitzball Team.

However, that still touches on what people think of it. You can't ask, "Has anyone considered doing this and that?" and not expect people to post what they think. This is a public message board where people have the right to say what is on their mind and what they think about the ideas presented on the forum. You can't expect everyone to be perfectly ok with everything, soemone's always going to have a conflicting view, and it's their right as a denzien of cosplay.com to post up that view. Some of the people on this board need to grow some skin and be more tolerant of other people's opinions.

I just did a lil bit more work on my idea of a Yuna formal dress. She has sleeves now. *oooh, ahhh* ^_^ I didn't want to change the neckline I had created, so I just made them off the shoulder, and they would be really sheer.

Whatca think of the design so far? :)

ok... my 2 cents

one post said: "So I'm sorry for asking if anyone else here has any imagination. I can see that the majority of you are confined to making costumes that have been predesigned, which is a shame and a waste of many of your talents I bet."

i think that it takes a hell of a lot of creativity and imagination just to take a 2-D design and make it real. i'm pretty sure that we all choose to make the costumes that we make because we like the way they look. we like the designs, and want to bring them to life. but the best part of cosplay is the fun. it is FUN to do, and if it wasn't then it wouldn't be so popular.

i agree with yuna when she said that 'no one was telling you not to do it, they were just telling you what they thought of it'. all we are doing is telling you what we think of it. you asked, and you got answers. personally, i think that if you have the urge to make your own design... that you should make your OWN design of your OWN personal character instead of dressing up FF characters in barbie clothes.
i'm not going to be told that i'm "wasting my time" by not making up my own designs of characters that don't need anymore designs. i like the costumes i choose, there are plenty to choose from, and i'm happy with them. i don't need to do what you do to be concidered talented.

it's your choice to ask what other people think about your ideas, but you can't expect to only hear positive comments. you need to think of both sides, and be ready for negative remarks. it's called opinion.

ahhh... i feel better.

Aaaaw, I love your design, Yuna X-2! It's adorable^_^

I'm designing a summoner Rikku for fun....an Al Bhed summoner @.@ LOL, hey, it's an 'original' class, isn't it? ^_^ If Yuna hadn't had to destroy all the Aeons in X, there probably would be a summoner class in X-2^_^ Ok, so if she hadn't destroyed all the summons in X....well...it'd would have been game over....^_~

Yuna
05-10-2003, 03:14 PM
Wait... doesn't an Al Bhed Summoner go against everything the Al Bhed stand for? O_O; lol, anti-Al Bhed, pro Yevon Al Bhed.

BabiiYunie
05-10-2003, 03:15 PM
lol, that is true, an al bhed who doesnt want the summoners to be sacrificed go out and sacrifice themself

Yuna
05-10-2003, 03:19 PM
I'm not even too sure Yevon would except an Al Bhed as a summoner... they wouldn't even let Rikku into the temple until they knew she was a Guardian... but then I degress. Maybe for a religious orginazation such as Yevon, having the hethens sacrifice themselves is better then the loyal.

Well, if we're going to get into gamer politics, Yuna went anti-Yevon considering:



SPOILER

Yevon WAS Sin anyway ^_^ So yes, if the Al Bhed wanted to be 'anti-Yevon' and destroy Sin which IS Yevon...I suppose a summoner Al Bhed isn't THAT far from maybe being a reality in some incarnation of the FFX world^_^ Ok, maybe not PROBABLE, but then again, what in the FF worlds is completely probable anyway? As for Rikku not wanting to be a summoner, ok. But, Rikku didn't want summoners to keep dying for no reason since she believed that machina was the answer to defeating Sin. But to die in place for Yuna? Die for a cause as powerful as friendship and family? I think she would. And anyway, it's not for these FF political reasons I want to do this, but because it would be fun, creative, and interesting to me. Not to anyone else.^_^

Yuna-X2
05-10-2003, 08:55 PM

Accually, Sin was the armor that Yu Yevon wore. Yu Yevon was the being who "created", I guess you can say, the Fayth. He created the Fayth, the Fayth created the Aeons which in turn made it possible for Yu Yevon, and Sin, to always be reborn. As Yunaleska said, Yevon, the religion, was a false teaching, a guise to give people false hope so they could be controlled. The Al Bhed didn't belive in the teachings of Yevon, there for could not be controled by it's laws. So, if an Al Bhed, who is one not by force, but by choice, chooses to become a summoner, they then are no longer an Al Bhed because the entire rite in which a summoner endures is under that false teaching Yevon spews to give people false hope. The Al Bhed don't believe the false teachings and therefore have no false hope. So, my point repeated, an Al Bhed who became a summoner would no longer be Al Bhed because that goes against everything that the Al Bhed fight for and believe in. Now, that isn't saying that they aren't AL Bhed by blood, because they still are. Here we get into the question of: would Yeven even allow an Al Bhed to go deep within their temples and become a summoner? To marry an Al Bhed and to be an Al Bhed guardian is one thing, but an accual summoner is quite another. Summoners, like Yuna says, are kind of like Spira's ray of hope. People know everything about a summoner; EVERYONE knew Yuna was Braska's daughter, so I can't imagine those faithful to Yevon and its teachings, like Wakka, would allow an Al Bhed to become an Summoner.

I'm not saying not to do that costume, it is a cute idea, but you wanted to get into FFX -game- politics, so there ya go ^^()

I don't think we're gonna see eye-to-eye on this one^_^ To each his own^_^


Anyway, I was thinking about making it all out of vinyl with Rikku's 'signature' colors: yellow, orange, and dark purple, I believe^_^ (Someone correct me on that one if I'm off O.O) I'm gonna mix together the designs of Yuna's and Rikku's original costumes with Yuna's default costume and old summoners like Rydia....hmmm...I'll post a pic as soon as I draw one up^_^

Yuffie! Omg, you have to make your thief Yuna! We'd be awesome together^_^

yuna has a theif costume already. O_o;; you knew that though right? *thought u did* o_o it's actually a really popular one since the design is pretty original and neat n stuff *_* or are you making a yuna....other-theif? ^_^;;

It's not really fair to say an Al Bhed can't be a summoner since well....Yuna was half Al Bhed and she was THE summoner.

Also, it's possible for an Al Bhed to go against what most Al Bhed believe since, they are only a race, not a religion, and I'm sure they don't all think the same, like robots or anything. It's possible for an Al Bhed to be a summoner, and believe in Yevon, in theory, a person can believe in whatever they want and go against the flow of the entire tradition of their race...but.....Rikku didn't flow with the whole summoner thing.

I must admit.....I want to see the costume.....

Hey,
I have my own idea for Yuna how does this sound rhythmic gymnastics Yuna!!! Will be complete with two twirly ribbon thingies..(gomen...I have no idea what they are called). But that's my idea...other include but are not limited to:


cheerleading Yuna
robotic Yuna
goddess Yuna
kung Fu Yuna
summonmaster Yuna (hint: for all those who played the first Lunar!)
Hippie Yuna
Modern Yuna (yuna in todays fashions)
Cat Girl Yuna
Super Genki Yuna
Yuna the summon (if yuna became a summon)
Gothic Yuna

Ermmm...that's all I have for now....mainly all the ideas that can come from a tired brain....

Yuna-X2
05-22-2003, 02:53 PM
Out of that list, I like the sound of Yuna the Summon the most. It would take a bit of thinking. Like, you could go right into it and figure out what element of magic she would be and stuff...

sakura yuna
05-22-2003, 06:02 PM
Hey Yuna X-2,
Ummmm...Yuna she would be hmmmmm....let me think *hears wheels turning in her head* ah hah! she would be the element of water (do not confuse this with ice). She would kind of have the ability like Leviathan...sorta but it would be cooler...hmmm....what would I call her attack? Well she would have lots of different spells and two ultimate attacks...

Spells:
Water
Watera
Wateraga
(has the ability to learn others like Aero)

Ultimate Attacks (kind of like limit breaks in FFVII):
The Deep: yuna creates water torpedos/missiles about seven at the enemies causing mild damage and then follows up with a tsunami wave that causes heavy damage.

Aquatic Nightmare: scene changes to an underwater scene and yuna appears in a more aquatic attire hurls water balls exactly twelve at high speed causing good damage and then follows up with merging with Leviathan for an attack that is caused by Leviathan's body slam along with wrapping it's body around the enemy(s) and squeezing them..this causes very heavy damage.

I dunno....just kind of like my idea just more elaborated upon...change whatever you like......I just don't have time to elaborate on it anymore...so it's kind of rushed...

Yuna-X2
05-24-2003, 08:15 PM
Woah!! I love that detail you put into the element! I think that that information could really help on creating a costume, cause then you can match the colours and fabric to the element. I would imagine that the costume would be flowy and loose? Maybe blue... Heehee, I really like that idea, :)

05-25-2003, 03:15 PM
