I like it. Especially the boots that you used. Where did you get those from?

However, Id have to say, the arm bow thingamajig is a bit short; it actually starts right at her underarm and ends just past the wrist. And the blue part on the boots is a bit too square; I know that hers kinda round off into weird shapes at the bottom. ( I know, I know, Im being picky, Ill stop)

I really like the color you chose for the wig. And the shirt, it looks like you used a real bikini top.

Very nice! Especially the top, like R1KKu said. The only thing I see really is the hair. It's ... too organized? If that makes sense. In the front where the braids come over the blue bandana, they just seem to lay to prefectly, and to come down a little far. Heh... being nit-picky as well. At least you know it's good, cause we have to go for tiny things ^_^

yeah i know the arm things slipped alot but in the game it actually rests above her
wrists. I made sure they are the right length but when we took the picks i let em slip too low. The wig was a hard labor of love..yes the braids are far too low but i wanted to be able to use the wig for something else. Thanx about the top i've been told mix things..but overall i think its pretty good for my first real costume. I appreciate everyones input thanx

:D

What you can do about the arm bands is, get some elastic and measure it so that its snug against your skin near your shoulders,sew it together, and then you could just attach it to the arm things with like 3 or 4 stitches. That way, it wont bunch up the fabric. Thats what I did, and they havent fallen off yet. And the shirt, I used a bikini top for mine. Yes it was expensive. I think thats the best way to go. If you went with making your own, just be sure that you have it sewn properly, or you could end up losing your top. =O

Being your first costume, Id have to say that you did a very good job overall.

the scarf is a little off. It has to be longer and the colors need to be stronger/brighter. The arm things were already mentioned and so was the hair. That's all I say but overall keep up the good work! Vey lovely rikku indeed ^^

AHH! i apologive i got them at a thrift store >_< tehy were black i whiped em down with nail polish remover and spray painted them white *use spray paint that has elastic qualities* i think i used one call fushion. i made the blue parts out of fabric with something to stiffen them up then hot glued them on. USe shoe goo insted because hot glue comes right off. anyways i hope that helps

Let me start of by saying that you make one of the cutest Rikkus around! But I do have a few tid bits of advice for you that I haven't seen mentioned yet. I know it's nit picky but I think that your boots go up a tad too high on your legs, but they do look good! As for the scarf (which I know was mentioned earlier), maybe try using a different style of knit sweater that is a tad longer, and try adding some red dye into the gradient effect? The only other thing I would suggest is try to have the braids actually attached to the hair rather than the headband, but I know that that's not exactly an easy task. Rikku's hair is crazy! It just looks a lot nicer and more realistic when the braids actually come down from the hair and over the headband. That's just a little pet peeve about rikku hair i have heh.

i love how it came out! like the sleeves, like the top and the attitude itss awesome! The hair looks slightly off.. but i dont know how... The scarf is alittle waay too short.. and the only other thing i noticed was the skirt looks a bit long but then that could just be me (im having the roblem of trying to make a skirt so accurate right now that it ended up looking right on to the character but not quite covvering my bum >-< so ill leave skirt lengths alone) overall it looks great! ^-^
