Anyone got any other pictures? Rikku's FFX-2 design (http://desmond.gaban.com/images/up4597.jpg)

I thought someone here might have been looking for it.

oh wow cooL! It's an interesting costume, ....but I don't think I'd ever wear anything like that...I can't wait til it's released in the U.S. (if ever....that is T_T). Maybe when I cosplay Yuna X-2, someone will cosplay with me? XD

That looks very interesting...
but man, you will see a lot of FF Fanboys drooling over that one.:P

-_-...umm I don't think it would be limited to FF fanboys... more like fanboys...in general

sort of the female version of boxers vs briefs discussion. I think we can all plainly see that Rikku wears a thong >.>

*looks at Pic again* She really does look like Christina Aguilera!
and yeah, she's wearing a thong. wow...I think this costume would be too risque for the normal anime cosplay population, but if somebody does this, more power to them!

Whoa...that's a very accurate description lol. Put some clothes on, Rikku! This is the first detailed Rikku pic I've seen. Thanks, Celine! :) Her hair actually looks kinda cool, and the costume looks *really* easy to do, so I'm sure there'll be lots of new Rikkus out there. I mean, yellow thong bikini, red scarf, blue headband, teeny brown skirt with some yellow pockets and blue boots...the hairstlye looks like the hardest aspect of this costume! :p Well, aside from those weird sleeve things. LOL I don't know why I find this costume so hilarious.

The first pic I saw is the screenshot of Rikku in the ship http://www.rpgfan.com/pics/ffx-2/ffx2-01.jpg. Then I saw a close up of the logo. Looks like all the FF chicks are going skimpy for this game! I'm still waiting for news on the mystery-chick-who-isn't-Lulu...

That might be it. Ohhh yeah, that scarf is really going to make a difference in keeping her warm... LOL

I really applaud the game designers' ability to mix current Japanese teen fashion trend into their character designs. Impractical as it, the scarf is adorable and so very now. Besides, game costumes aren't about wearability or practicality. Her hair rocks!! ^_^

I think this costume would be too risque for the normal anime cosplay population.

I think if the "normal cosplay population" can accept Lum & Felecia, this one won't be a problem.

Especially Final Fantasy costumes! When my cousin and I were working on our Yuna and Lulu costumes we kept talking about what crazy fashion sense the people in these games have.

Very true. And Rikku's costume is more like regular clothes than those two. It's just like beach wear (minus the scarf and boots).

Man, that is such an awesome costume! I would love do do something like that, but I definatly couldn't pull it off.

It looks like she couldn't decide if she was going swimming or skiing.

A scarf and a bikini.......now thats a new one.

There are small strings running up over her hips if you look closely. They look maybe orange or flesh toned. But there's mo way to get underwear up that high with out them showing over your pants or giving you a serious wedgie.

Maryssa

Err, well thats funny since i have underwear AND bathing suits that look just like that which certainly are not thongs ^^;

Koumori

Well, obviously we can't tell for sure (I hope). But the current fashion trend among many girls is to wear your thongs with the straps showing like that - and I believe it's always done with thongs, as opposed to string bikinis (which I think ride a little differently) or any other kind of underwear and I can't believe I'm actually contributing to this discussion.

I do kinda like her hair, tho. But that costume...>_< I don't know what to think of it. It just makes me laugh.

Right, yeah, that'll be my next costume: Me cosplaying Rikku cosplaying Christina Aguilera. Suuuure. I'll look like I was headed to the beach and I got lost and wound up at Anime Expo! I'm not Ryoga lol. Besides, if "Pain" aka "mysterious third character" turns out to be related to Lulu, I want to dress as her. Assuming her clothing isn't as skanky as Rikku's. The pic in the logo doesn't look too promising. >_<

ROFLMAO! Wow, she seriously looks just like her.. o___O I agree we'll probably se seeing a lot of these popping up ^^;;, but it's a bit too revealing for myself.. haha..

Umi
11-16-2002, 03:41 PM
Man I think itd' be a cute costume but er... yeah.... ^o^

Ok so I can't tell for sure that it's a thong but that has been the 'in' style thing for the past year or so. Girls wearing thongs and pulling up the strings over the pant or skirt lines. Tho' I agree from the way it looks it is pulled up it doesn't really seem as if a lot of cloth could cover anything back there.

This thread changed rather quickly from "Hey look at the new Rikku design" to "Let's analyze underwear".... though I think their intention was to go for beachwear here... otherwise... whoa ultra-skanky. heh.

I think that was the point for all three characters :::winks::: Rikku's costume hasn't altered as much as Yuna's has! And if that is indeed Lulu, then OMG, I guess those belts really did get to her, huh

Can you really blame her??? LOL I couldn't even make the whole day with those belts at AX. I ended up removing them so I could walk back to the hotel at the end of the day, because I wouldn't have made it. I wouldn't blame Lulu if after all the stuff that happens in FFX she says she's had it with the belts and wants to walk around in a thong instead lol. (Although if she does that I will definately *not* be cosplaying her.) Maybe the name "Pain" refers to wearing that skirt. I can relate to that! :D

I'm convinced that for every skimpy costume, male or female, there will be someone willing to cosplay it. And you know what? If they're comfortable with it, more power to them.

Oddly enough, I usually don't take photos of the skimpy costumes unless they're also particularly well done. (Or they ask me to.) Of course, I've got a wierd attitude on what I'll shoot.
