View Full Version : Ponderings on Shiva...

05-08-2002, 08:18 PM
I think it was because I was looking at Kuja's photos and there was...a person...who I assume was FFIX Shiva? Iono. I have not played that. I have only played X and a few hours of VII...

Does anyone familiar with FFX think it would be...trying to find words...eh, let's just say "possible" to cosplay FFX Shiva, seeing as how there seems to be less and less covering as the numbers get higher? I was thinking bodysuit or something ^^; That would be supernifty.

Ali is biased; Shiva is Ali's favoritest aeon in the game...That finger snap! So cool. Literally. Whoo

Hey about cosplaying Shiva from FF. Here are some sites with pictures of other cosplayers who have cosplayed her before. Use these as examples - they are terrific! ^_~ Good luck!

Justin = silly and has to talk to me through Erin.

But Justin is not on AIM for me to pounce him and actually talk to him ;_;

Therefore: Justin! You must go through with it somehow! *strikes a pose* Against all obstacles...

*Ali's good!Conscience (tm) baps Ali* Shaddup, you just want to see pretty guys wearing little clothing!

-_- Sigh...

Ah yes Shiva. Um I think the FFX version it is possible to use a body suit. That hair is just insane though. Her skin in the game is really blue compared to Tristens FFIX one where it was kind of purple. So I think if you found like a light blue body suit it would totally work. I've noticed sense FFIX they've gone thong happy. :schitzo:

Yeah, Lindze's doing FFX Shiva sometime. When that sometime is, is up in the air. Her husband won't let her do expensive costumes right now, cause they're getting broke. XD~ Not as broke as me thoughhh...

I saw her FF8 Shiva and hit the floor. I don't know how anyone could make a costume that amazing and spectacular. Someone has to get her to this board. She's awesome!!!! I'm stumped to this day how she did it. But I certainly won't ask and exploit her costume secrets.

I've been pondering this idea as well, and when I asked around about a custom wig, they all laughed at me ^^;; Shiva of FFX has been done (there's a picture of a Jp cosplayer as Shiva in my "fave Jp cosplayers" album in the images section). I would do what Lindze did which is a fully body suit, and use the necklace to hide the collar. After that, a bit of fabric paint and bikini bottoms and you're set ^_~ And I agree w/ Kuja, they were way thong-happy in FFX ^_^; Makes it kind of hard for us cosplayers, if we want to stay legal, anyway ^_~

Medellia -

If you ever go look at the photos on fansview(dotcom), there was a Shiva at one of the two most recent cons! Ack. Now I cannot remember which one. *digs up lj entry where she babbled about that*
Ooh yes, Animazement.
I am psycho! XD

as someone ELSE who's making this costume ^_^ i think it's awesome that you too are courageous. my only words of "wisdom" *laugh* is to allow yourself LOTS of time. body suit sewing is rough.

i'm sure it'll be awesome when you're finished! if we're at the same con at some point, we should meet and take pics together! ^_^ good luck!

Yep, I saw that one ^_^ I just like Harumi-chan's costume better because she made it unique ^_^ But the Animazement Shiva was nice too, I can't imagine how she kept the body paint on all day 0_o

I've made a Shiva FFX costume (AX 02)

and Lindze has finished her's too (Otakon 02)!

*.* Heeheee~~~~ Aimee rocks! : ) Lindze is Ghetto Shiva~!!! hahaha ><

Shiva has always been my favorite summon... I'm planning on doing one of her versions within a year or so. :D I'm not saying anything more on that.

Lindze's site has information on how things were created, I believe. *blink* Lindze.com? ^_^; I haven't checked there in a while.

^.~ Heehee., her FF8 Shiva head piece was awesome. ^^ the bottom part was all carved from foam. ^.~ It's spiffy to touch....hahaha

I think she's redoing some of her FFX Shiva...I'm amazed that she got all of that done in about a month's time and a tiny budget. @_@

Aimee - well, if you happen to be around the board again - Just thought I'd say, I saw your costume up close at the Pioneer booth. Lots of costumes look great from a distance but are a little shoddy once you get closer. Yours looked fantastic from every angle. Your hard work definitely shows! ^^

Personally I think anyone who does Shiva rocks . . . ^^ I'd really like to do FF3 Shiva (probably from the Amano design) . . . maybe someday.

shiva cosplayers are brave to do her costume *o* it looks tough, but it sure will be a kick ass costume XD
