Hello all! Im having major trouble figuring out how in the heck I would make the top! It doesnt even look like she's wearing a bra (Which I actually wouldnt mind as long as anything was saging or see-through, LOL) Any help? Has anyone actally even done this cosplay? I know alot of people do Rinoa, but not the Dion Rogers design. (I found the ordinary costume too plain.)

Any help/advice would be greatly appreciated

And for those that dont know, this is the Dion Rogers design

*__* I've never seen that Rinoa design. Wow, it's so cute. Reminds me a tad too much of Gunner Yuna, but still, it's terribly adorable. What's the story behind it? Is this something that was actually considered for Rinoa, or something made by a fan?

You could do like a built-in bra thing? In any case, it looks like there are cups there holding the thing up.

When Kingdom Hearts came out and some of the FF characters were redesigned for it, Dion Rogers came up with this fanart version of what Rinoa might look like if she appeared in Kingdom Hearts, based on the FFX-2 designs. She did such a good job that it led to a lot of rumors that Rinoa was going to be in KH2! ^^ At any rate, the design rocks so much it has been cosplayed numerous times either as the "Dion Rogers" or "Kingdom Hearts" version of Rinoa:
C.Com Gallery: "Dion Rogers Rinoa" (http://images.cosplay.com/searchgallery.php?si=rinoa%20dion&what=allfields&name=&when=&whenterm=)

It's really neat, and I plan on doing this version at some point as well.

At any rate, for the top, I would take a skin-colored or black strapless bra and build the top around it or attach it to it to hold it up. ^^

Ahhh, neat. ^__^ Makes sense now that you explain it, LOL. Thanks a bunch! May have to add this to my list of future cosplays.

Who all has cosplayed the Dion Rogers Rinoa? I could search Cosplay.com galleries but they've been down forever and google's no help... I was wondering what the back looked like.

I'm actually thinking about making that design just so I could wear it around. I'm pretty sure the back is just the blue vest, black lace at the bottom and a little black showing at the top, with painted on wings like the original Rinoa, or that's how I'd imagine it to be >.>

There's another artwork of Dion Rogers' Rinoa somewhere with a gunblade too, though I don't know where ^^'

I never seen Rinoa like that. The Dion Rogers or Kingdom Hearts version of Rinoa is so cute it makes me think about cosplaying her in the future.

For reference, here's the creator's website: http://www.rainyblueday.com

There's other angle shots there, too! (No back shots, though)

Here's a backshot. My friend sent all of the reference images of this design a looong time ago! I plan on doing it sometime next year! XD

AH thanks! You guys are so helpful! But again about cosplayers here... the only person I can remember the name of with a Dion Rogers Rinoa was Sana-chan but I can recall there was at least one more.....Gah I wish the search function would hurry up and make its return!

I'm working on one myself. Though I'm doing a few modifications with it since I don't think anyone would want to see my fat tummy poking out of it. I'm just wearing my black Rinoa tank top under it, and I'm adding some white lace under the black to help it stand out a bit more. Longer hair is also more flattering on me, so I'm using my existing Rinoa wig. Other than that, I'm keeping the design the same. I also really want to make that gunblade! I've been dying to make a good prop out of wood. So that'll be a lot of fun!

Hmm..I wanna do this but I wanna do an evil version of it (You know..instead of being blue with angel wings,how about red with devil/demon wings..) :D

Nooooo I meant I'm completely remaking mine. The top is horrid!! So I shall be remaking mine out of the things it SHOULD be...haha I used organza instead of lace for the most part on everything but the top...which is regular lace. Yeah people don't take my advice or any ideas I put on mine cuz they are totally wrong.

oh wow thanks a ton! that backshot helped! :O

I'm currently working on this costume :) my friend bought some of the ribbing for a Rinoa costume and decided to just give it to me in exchange for making her another outfit. And seeing as I thought Rinoa's normal duster outfit is a bit overdone, I decided on Dion's design! One of my favorite color combos (black+blue) and it has lace EVERYWHERE *o*!

I seriously think that Dion should design all future KH outfits for the Final Fantasy characters, lol. I don't even like Rinoa that much and I'm making this outfit before I even finish my Yuna or Aeris ;x

I'm making this costume for my friend (the Yuffie and X2 Rikku in my gallery). So far...we've got the belt. Lol. We're working on it bit by bit for AUSA, so look for it there! Anywho, check out the Otakon 2005 photoshoot gallery in my galleries, and lemme know if you think the Yuffie wig would work for this costume.
