^ :thumbsup:

The costume is marvelous, but I think the stockings need to be a little longer. And the shoes don't really look like Rikku's. But great job! :thumbsup:

heh thaqnks for the complaiments and constructive criticism everyone! okay so, leggings and hat are a bit off. anything else need some adjusting? I did think that hat was alittle off i wanted to redo it anyway cause i didnt like how the fabric paint made it look. thanks for the input everyone and if anyone else has anything else to add i would greatly appreciate that too! ^-^

Very nice. The colors are very close to the actual outfit, and your use of different fabrics is excellent especially on the sleeves. Good job for a first costume. That 4 months sure was worth it.

Good luck on any other costumes you make, especially Rikku dresspheres XD

I think I was most impressed with the little armor thingy you did on the skirt. I have friends thinking about doing that exact costume and they were a little perplexed on that particular part. The only thing I can think of wrong with the outfit is the size of the hat's brim, and witch's hats are natoriously too small.

I think it looks good, same comment as the others about the hat. But the costume is beautiful, good work!!

I love the stockings, i think theyre adorable. The hat could be bigger yes. I also think that the staff could be a little bigger too. The paint job is beautiful, but the stick part could be about a foot or so longer. Great job, and it was fun seeing you at Anime Boston!

The thing about the satff is it was made for me, i painted it and everything but i had a very nice sub at my school who has his own woodshop and while he has no idea about what this crazy thing called cosplay is, he agreed to help me out for free! Though, im not sure how he put it together so i couldnt really add on to it and i think it would be an insult for me to be like "can you fix this?" heh i can do much about that. As for the hat im planning to redo it completely, bigger size and a better look huzzah!

The legging need to bee a tad longer and the hat bigger. Besides all that, it looks great. But even if you don't change those aspect, I think it looks fine the way it is.

Hmm, my only comment, aside from the others mentioned, is that the tights are yellow/the purple-maroon color. It might be the lighting of the pictures, but the "yellow" of your tights looks a tad bright green, instead. They're hard little buggers though, I know!

Wow...it's soo good. All I would say is that the head needs to be bigger but of course that's been said already. But really, really amazing job. It looks awesome.

I really liked it! The colors work great, and as an over all costume it's marvelous! I think that the hat could be longer as well, but it still looks fine! I love the staff as well! heehee. You make a very nice Black Mage Rikku. ^_^

hehehe why thank you for the compliments! about the legging color, it is a bright green in all the pics i've seen though they are alittle off in color becuase the crappy selection at the fabric store....
