Between her facial features and the hairstyle, she looks like Nakazawa Yuko to me. You'd think the leather would detract from that, yet it doesn't at all.

I'm not sure what the physical advantages to having your garter clips go all the way up and around your neck would be, but it's certainly interesting! Dress in careful order, ladies. ^_^

Omg I really hope I end up liking her character because I SO wanna cosplay her. She's got this whole 80s punk rocker chick thing going on, and I just love the costume. She just screams "80s" with the leather and chains and the hair but she looks so cool. @_@ I am in awe of the coolness of this costume. And it's not as skimpy as the others lol, which is cool.

*stares* I don't like it =/ It's interesting, and I like her shawl-thingy, but overall.... meh. Oh well, not like I was gonna cosplay her or anything (I still want to wait for the game so I can see Rikku's other outfits, although I looooove the one that we've all seen).

Anywho, now that I look at the katakana...
Pah-E-n. Makes it sound more like Pine....
if they wanted it to sound like Pain they would have done something like "Peh-E-n".. and stuff. Eh, just another thing to wait for when they start writing her name in romaji ^^

This is your first warning. Talk like that is not acceptable.


I don't like this Pain character design at all :( I think she has a very male body. It's hard to see her curves so it makes her look under developed.. like she has no womanly curves. It might just be the belts that go around her waist. It's very unattractive IMO. It's almost Sailor Starfighter ish.

Daitenshi
12-15-2002, 02:22 PM
....at least the Starfighter's had curves.
Although I noticed and have been wondering about her lack of chest and curves. She appears to be taller than the others, yet is quite under-developed. The body is just feminine enough to keep it from being a guy...I think.

Eh, it's alllllll about the costume changes *_*
Maybe her hair will change as well XD

BlueLady
12-15-2002, 02:27 PM
Hmm she doesn't look very manish to me.. more like all those super thin slightly androginous ( I cannot spell that sorry) models from the mid 80's.. Kinda the same genre as Grace Jones's character from the james Bond movies..

Tenshi
12-15-2002, 02:40 PM
I think one of the reasons I liked her character design so much was because she isn't curvy. I mean, when was the last time we saw an FF character that wasn't curvy? I think Terra. I like to see characters I can pull off, at least shape-wise ^_^.

soshi
12-15-2002, 06:35 PM
Aeris wasn't curvy.. nor Rinoa (well, not really) or Selphie, nor Yuna or Rikku..

.. I don't think Freya counted as curvy either. =P

PretearWink
12-15-2002, 07:04 PM
I actually have half her costume just laying around...seriously...garage sales have the WIERDEST stuff sometimes...but I don't like her design. She looks like she's going to be a whiney, poser, wannabe bad-ass with some lame vendetta who is rebelling against 'daddy' or something. >.< But, who knows, I could be way wrong, but that's the impression I get from the costume,her expressions in the article, and on the official japanese website for FFX-2, which is hella sweet by the way^_^

If we all based our opinions on, say, Tifa, by what she wears, we'd be horribly mistaken, but....I guess we'll just have to wait and see^_^

I'm more of a Rikku girl myself^_^

Hmmm, yes I'd heard she was either "Pain" or "Pine." From what you said looks like Pine might be more accurate.

I really just hope they do something good with her personality. She looks like she might have the potential to be a very cool character.

TyJILDown
12-15-2002, 11:13 PM
Well, if we're talking about a character who is tall, thin, not busty, not very curvy and a bit manly...this is PERFECT for me when it comes to looks ahh! I love the whole 80's look so I would adore to cosplay as this character...just need to make sure I like her personality *begs*

Sometimes when women are exstremely active and work out a like the ab mucsle will make them loose their waist, giving them that straighter look. The same goes for breasts. The muscle there will be very fit there by making the accuall fat of the breast less, hence making them smaller. Another little fact, women who are exstremely active/work out greatly will sometimes *stop* having their period because their body uses its rescorces for other things: muscle buidling, enderace, ect. so this can sometimes lead to women beiing under developed. Just look at Olympic athetes.

Tenshi
12-16-2002, 12:46 AM
>.>;;; I guess what I *meant* to say was a very straight body type. Some FF girls aren't as busty as others but they at least have a feminine body type. Pain/Pine looks like Pink, body-wise. Anyways, I like her design. I don't care if it looks a little mannish, she's still neat-o in my book ^_^.

Ooh me likes the charrie design. For the same reason I like Lulu in FFX... it's a different female archetype than I'm usually used to seeing. Here's hoping her personality doesn't fall into the same-ol' same ol' category. *crosses fingers*

Something Lulu
12-16-2002, 11:40 AM
I think the outfit is really cool, although I wonder about that shawl/wrap... It looks like it would make it rather difficult to move her arms, let alone wield a sword. I kinda like the hair, though... I've been experimenting with styling wigs lately, and it's actually kind of fun! Although for this one I'm sure I'd need my stepdad's help. I can't wait to hear more about her character, and also more about her character design.

by "dyke" i ment manish. i hope no one took offense to that because it seems to me that some people agree that she'a rather manish looking. no curves, boyish hair, boyish outfit...

I mean come on people, if I said "he looks flamming" about some guy character no one would care o_O what's the difference between dyke and flammer?

--Uhhhh. Wow that can be taken really rudely. I hope you're either gay yourself or were joking or something.

Yes, I do like girls.

Nine
12-17-2002, 01:57 PM
Just because she has short brown hair she looks like a lesbian? Well... then my theroy of having all 3 girls was right!!!!!! XD lol jk

If you said a male character looks like a flammer no one would make a big deal about it because "flammer" isn't as known and offencive as calling someone a "dyke". If you called some male character "queer" then that would be another story ^^; Yeah, calling something a dyke is quite offencive, especially when on the internet because when there isn't any body language or tone in what you say, people assume that you mean it in a bad way. ^^;

I think Pine looks wicked, and I hope her name stays Pine - because I hate "Pain" for a name -_-;;

all the masculine lesbians I know really don't care one way or another about the word dyke. it always seems to be everyone EXCEPT masculine lesbians who get offended. ^^;

Same with gay guys, they don't care if you call them queer or not (at least all the 49085395 that I know). Anyway, yeah, I didn't mean any offence to it...she just looks like...well...a manish lesbian type person..aka dyke. *shrug*. and theres no way i COULD mean any offence to the lesbian community because i likes the girlies too.

and her short brown hair is not what i think makes her manish ^^; its her overall look.

"She is said to be a cruel person, who does not reveal her feelings to others."

For some reason my first thought upon reading this was "So she's a bitch? Okay, cool." She just *looks* like a badass. I love it!

That's why I said what I did earlier to cutekawaii.. I don't get offended by 'dyke' if girls that like girls say it, or if it's meant jokingly, but I really couldn't tell how she meant it when she just posted a one liner like that.. it sounded offensive. ^^;

Pain/Pine admittedly looks the type, but, eh, you can't always categorize by looks. Foofy.

Limeyaku
01-03-2003, 04:33 PM
Hmm...I just read somewhere that she was meant to be designed as a cross between a female Squall and Fujin.

After I read that, yeah. O_O She really does look like Fujin, but her hair is more browinish and going up instead of down. And the whole leather thing I guess can relate to Squall + the big sword = sort of gunblade.

Also, from the screenshots I've seen and from what I've read, Lulu introduces Paine or suggests that she travel with Yuna. However, Paine and Lulu are apparently /not/ supposed to get along too well in the game. O_O

Again, it's all just what I've heard, read or seen, so we shall see. ^_^ But yeah...I like her! ^0^ She has a /very/ pretty face. Really well defined n whtnot. Her eyes especially. ^-^

I don't know why people always want a curvy character to be in the FF series. Personally speaking, a change of character is a good thing. I've never seen a character like Paine before and it's wonderful that Square is trying new things -- considering that in Japan, women don't really have power. Paine seems to have lots of power and she seems like she would be just as badass as Auron was.

If you want curves and a feminine feature, look at Yuna or Rikku. Paine's a different story and I'm sure many people like her. Barbie doll style is fading away! In comes the butch reality! Go PAINE!

:D

I think that tough badass-ness is part of what makes her look so cool. I was looking at the illustration of her and she does seem to have some curves there, but they're not so emphasized, which is cool. I really love this outfit, and I can't wait to see the others she'll have.

As for Otakon, if I go, I will most likely have a Paine costume that I can bring with me. Unfortunately, it's only a few weeks after I get back from SDCC, but I'd be able to get a ride with one of my coworkers.

Yuna as a pop star? ..oh dear. And I loved X and all the characters and blah blah blah... I just hope the characters stay true to form and that everything is happy and good. ^_^

As for dykes, YAY! *kisses her boyfriend* dykes kick ass ^_~ *pokes her QAF dvds*

and, just for the record, Aeris might have curves on her ass, but the boobs are definately lacking. ~_~ it's ok. Tifa had enough to cover the both of them. ^_~

Oh my...I was just about to ask where I might be able to find cheaper pyramids, studs, and skull paraphernalia (so far, only found www.hottopics.com and www.leatherworks.com).

But uhh...after seeing those pictures...hmm...perhaps a reconsideration is in order. I'm almost tempted to do more than one of them...

I've never really "cosplayed" before, and the only convention I have ever been aware of is the San Diego comic con [my "c" button is broken and I have to copy and paste every time for the letter...sheesh], so are there any recommendations for a first-time cosplayer to attend?...preferably in Southern california, but if anything else is worth going to...I'm all for it.

Anime Expo. It's a lot of fun, and SO many ppl cosplay. It was my first real cosplay experience and it was great. It's in Anaheim this year. I fly all the way out from NY for AX and CC. ^_^ I'm tempted to cosplay more than one of the outfits, too. But I've decided to definately do her default one, and I have enough pictures to work from, so I'm starting on that.

First one I've seen, too. @_@ Wow. She did a pretty nice job. Once you break the costume down it doesn't seem *that* difficult, it's just a matter of putting everything together the right way. I just have to keep reminding myself that I thought Lulu would be the most difficult thing ever, but when you actually make it all it's not that hard. I think the belts (and then walking in them) were the most annoying aspect.

Do you think they're going to come out with official Paine jewelry like they have for Tidus, Yuna, Squall, etc?

Hmmm, I just noticed that Paine and Zell have very similar hairstyles. Pretty much the same, except her hair is longer sp it does a little more. I'm not saying there's any kind of connection between them, I just think it's interesting.

Although it would be cool if she had a tattoo like that somewhere. ;)

I've been thinking a lot lately about how Yuna has a popstar mode, Rikku looks like Christina Aguilera, and LeBranc has been compared to J.Lo. So now I've been wondering if Paine has a popstar mode (lol). She doesn't seem like the type, especially when you compare her to ppl like Aguilera and J.Lo. But if she did have one maybe it would be a little more Debbie Harry or old school Madonna. From her looks I can *kind of* see her as some kind of punk-princess singer type. Or maybe I just think it would be funny so I'm picturing it lol.

Slightly off topic, but, thinking that I probably don't have her figure to wear her "skimpier" outfits, I've finally decided on making Paine's knight outfit for AE and CC. The more skin to cover the better (:D)

(recap) http://www.playonline.com/ffx2/images/ab_dress2.jpg

This will be my first armor costume, but I'd say I have enough time to work on it. Plus, my general criteria for my costume-making in particular is "it's not a costume unless you can't walk in it." I think this fits well in my category considering the series of uncomfortable outfits I've made. I've already started buying materials to make the body cast during my Spring break in March. I am an armor-amateur, so I'll be following the basics of the how-to section in www.bioweapons.com and some stormtrooper armor web site (I forgot but will give credit later)...ooooh I can't wait!

Sure it is! Picture it... you, all Rikku-ed up with the braids and clothing (or lack there of in this game), arms waving in the air as you run away frantically from the rabid squirrels. The picture is taken, your mouth open in mid-scream as you plead for help and sancuary from the demon furry rats from hell...

Sounds worth the picture for me! lol

whoops, I feel like an idiot now, I was talking about cosplaying Beastmaster Paine, and I just now saw that you said Rikku. >_<

But it still works out that way. Provided Beastmaster...I mean, Monster Trainer Rikku is somewhat covered.

Damn, that *would* be a funny picture lol. I'd be more likely to throw something at them than run away, though. (That sounds like a more Paine-ish thing to do, so maybe if I cosplay Monster Trainer Paine I'll go out and throw things at squirrells, and that will be their "training." ^_^)

that's one of the reasons I disagree with the class system used in FFX-2...Yuna and Rikku had their roles. Yuna is NOT a thief or a dark warrior, Rikku is NOT a white mage, etc... Paine was made to be the darkness in the group; leveling out the perkiness of the other two, etc. I really liked that about her characters, and her original default outfit as well.

The Popstar outfit, while nicely colored, is just character-warping... o_0 I'd like to see it done, but...the concept is odd.

that, and it reminds me of Elton John. XD

That's only where they specialized (think overdrives). Anyone in your party could learn other things, like; stealing, black magic, white magic, flee anything on the sphere grid. Now it's like that, except no grid. Blah. I'm sure if they suddenly taked away the classes alot of people would be pissed. 7.7; And THAT is my 2 cents.

When they first released pics of Paine (in her black outfit) I thought she looked cool because she was all decked out in black and looked like a badass, and the red and silver accents really went nicely with her look. But pretty much every other outfit they've shown has been very colorful (excluding her knight outfit), and the look just doesn't suit her. So a lot of her outfits end up looking somewhat odd on her (at least to me). I think they should have kept to a color scheme of very darkly colored outfits for her, with pastels at a minimum. Does anyone else agree?

Granted, the pictures that are out now don't show most of Paine's costumes very well, so I'm waiting until there are better ones before I think about cosplaying any of them. So far the one I like most after her default one is her Monster Trainer outfit, but what I plan to do is wait for better pictures of everything and then change the colors of them. For example, thief mode in different/darker colors, or any other one (that I like the design of but not the colors) all in black with color accents. Right now I only know which ones I would *not* cosplay, so that's narrowing it down a bit. ^_^

EDIT: Hmmm, the gunner outfit is kinda nice (or maybe I just like the guns? lol), and at least it doesn't have any pastel or neon shades.

When they first released pics of Paine (in her black outfit) I thought she looked cool because she was all decked out in black and looked like a badass, and the red and silver accents really went nicely with her look. But pretty much every other outfit they've shown has been very colorful (excluding her knight outfit), and the look just doesn't suit her. So a lot of her outfits end up looking somewhat odd on her (at least to me). I think they should have kept to a color scheme of very darkly colored outfits for her, with pastels at a minimum. Does anyone else agree?

Yeah, that's what I was saying. Thief/Popstar seem too perky to fit her, almost. ^^; But the sleek look of Gunner matches her image, I think. I love Paine's design. I think when I play, she won't be changing classes more than necessary. XD; But Dark Knight fits her very well, I think! All decked out in Persona style armor. :O!

When Yuna's Dark Gunner outfit came out, I thought it was so pretty that I actually thought about cosplaying Yuna just so I could wear that outfit. lol (I think I just like the colors...) So I don't know how I missed noticing that Paine's is almost the same! Okay, so there's some major differences, but it still has that pretty blue and purple skirt so now I want to make it lol.

Does anyone have any better pics of Paine's Dark Gunner outfit? I'm considering making it now but I'd like to see some better pictures first (if there are any lol).

That White Mage outfit is cute! (Finally, another Paine costume I really like lol.)

I've been thinking about the wig, too. I think I'm just going to have to beg my stepdad to do this one for me. So far I've cut and styled 3 wigs and I've gotten by with just some advice and demonstrations from him, but I've always had long hair and I know nothing about doing stuff with short hair, especially if it involves being "up." >_< I'm going to show him pics, ask what kind of wig I should look for, and what I should do to it. If anyone is interested, I'll post whatever I learn from him here. (I hope to visit my mom's this weekend, which means I can show him pics.)

And thanks to everyone who's been posting screencaps! It's greatly appreciated. ^_^

Gambler is kinda cute but very...naked lol. I've decided I want to make her default outfit (Warrior) and one other. I'm not sure what yet, but I've narrowed it down to Dark Gunner, Trainer, and White Mage. I'm going to start working on Paine after AnimeBoston, which is in 3 weeks, so all my time, energy, and money has to go into finishing my costumes for that.

Well, I set up a really basic page with pictures of people who have cosplayed as characters from FFX-2 as well as some reference shots from the game/artwork. It's just for visual reference, and in no way am I trying to start a gallery or anything big like that... so if you see someone you know who has a picture on the page, please know that the only place I'm posting a link to it is on here. Otherwise it's just being used by me and my three other girl friends who will be making the other costumes.

Figured I'd pass the link on to the rest of you guys. =)

I care TONS about them...the fact that you're creating them is friggin' fantastic. ;D Did you see the pics of that other Paine costume? I pulled those from the Japan Yahoo Auctions page... those things are nuts. That final full Paine costume went for almost $400 US! SHEESH!

Did you sew/attach the red suspenders to your shawl? I think I'm going to go with the metal pyramid studs for the shawl but I realize it's going to be a ton after they're all on... so that's still in debate.

Thankies for the complement ^___^ I'm starting to hate it right now cause my fingers hurt from so much hand sewing on it ^^; but I'll get over that.... I have a love hate relationship with most of my costumes that take a lot of work, namely Mana. (dear god did I ever wanna throw that one a side and never finish it)

I seen the other costumes that you pulled ($400 for a Paine costume?!?!?!?! man I should sell mine after AN) but to tell you the truth (weeee image leaching) this is all I've been using so far:
http://www.freeq.org/cheryll/ffx-2/index-paine.jpg

My suspenders are just that suspenders, their not attached to any thing. The bra/tube top, belts and (hopefuly, I still haven't made them) the shorts should hold them in place with little to no two way tape. For my armor I used this really neat sliver pleather that gives a matalic shine when a flash is used in pics, found it for a whole $5 a meter too! Then I added them all with a little stud in the middle to keep them in place. The whole thing weighs like 2 pounds max i think, it's the heavest part so far and it doesn't even weight that much...

if you wanna use killer tehn go right a head, i don't think I'm posting another pic of her untill she's sanded casue she looks kinda ugly right now -_- *waits for het snow to melt so that she can sand it*

positivespace
04-09-2003, 03:25 AM
Are you using pleather for your entire costume? I found this upholstery fake pleather stuff but there's this annoying fuzzy backing on it that I don't think will feel to great against bare skin (like vinyl will fee any better, right?)

Is there such a thing as stretch pleather?

Lemme know how Killer is going! I'm excited to see your finished sword... I bought some balsa wood the other day so my Dad is going to help me make the sword out of that. *crosses fingers*

Minakolabelle

yeppers, mine is all pleather. I found this neat real feeling stuff in Toronto's fashion district, but it's soooo hot to wear; I had a glove on last night for about 10 min to take pics and it was all ready sweating in it. XD

There is streatch pleather, mine has some stretch to it, one of the reasons why I bought it, so that I can make the boot covers and gloves out of the same material.

You can find stretch pleather around for pretty good prices. I got mine at a store in the Garment District in NYC that specializes in stretchy fabrics. It's "washable Skinsoft PVC" and it's stretchy, soft, and easy to sew in a machine. And only $7/yd. I'm using it for everything now lol. I plan to do the red suspenders in different parts.

You can tell! Killer is looking gorgeous lol. ;)
Next week I'm going to allow myself to actually start working on Paine, since AB will be over.

A question for those of you who have used your real hair for Paine, or who have wigs already. What sort of wig should I get to style it? I'm thinking maybe a chin or shoulder length wig in the right color should be fine, because it gives me enough hair to work with and chop away at, if need be. I've never really had short hair (it's almost sitting on length now), so this is going to be an experience. >_< I'm guessing I should get one with bangs, and then use massive amounts of hairspray or gel in combination with my flatiron to lift the top, and then flatten the sides? Does that sound about right?

Minakolabelle
04-13-2003, 12:22 AM
your best bet would be to get one of them short chin lenght bob wigs and go from there. I have short hair, check my insanity pics if you wanna see it, that is cut on odd angles. you might wanna add har to teh bottom to hide the wig cap if your anal about that sort of thing like I am.

If your going to be using hair spray for it, make sure you get the cheepest hair spray possible..... it works better then most more expensive ones. another thing I learned with working with hair spray ona wig is use the hairdryer on low heat to make the spikes stay better.

Oh, btw I just uploaded the 95% done pics of Paine in my gallery if any one wants to see them

I am starting my White Mage Paine costumes asap! I got almost all of the fabric for it and I plan to get the rest in the next few days.

I've taken as many screenshots as I can, I think I've figured out all of the designs..... I hope! lol The circle design on the hood I still am unsure about. I'll leave it to last and if I have to, I'll just make it the same as Yuna's and use Paine colours hehe. Paine's designs seem to be the same as Yuna's just different colours!

I am trying to figure out the colour of them trim on the bottom on her dress, on the ends of her boots, on her shoulders and the part on the top of her undershirt where the white holes are. They look either navy or dark purple to me!

The only thing I'm kinda worried about is the collar..... it seems the trim around her robe goes around the back kinda raised and then her hood is after that..... Also making thigh boots won't be fun lol

But I'm sure I can pull it off, the costume isn't too difficult just will aquire a lot of painting!
