^^;;

I thought it was about time she got her own thread. Yuna has one...Paine has one...Lulu has one...EVEN NURGE HAS ONE!!! *-* Rikku is VERY deserving, I say! ^_^

Now. To all my fellow Rikku fans...

I'm sure you've noticed LOTS of inconsistencies, not only with Yuna details, but yeah, they're there with Rikku too. -_- ( this is referring to the 'default' Theif outfit she wears, not posting a pic cuz...well...it's very common. ^^;; )

http://www.geocities.com/limeyaku/rikkux2.html

I've put that together to (hopefully) help us all. -_- Even though it'll probably confuse just as well.

Myself, I decided to go with the bright yellow top, shiny yellow trim, orange tie in front and back. And yellowe thong-strings. ( which are actually just attached to the skirt. *snicker snicker* )

Basically...I've decided I'm going off the in-game version as seen below. *puts on glasses and points with a pointer*

http://media.psx2.com/images/games/ffx-2/ffx2-33.jpg

Rikku's second discovered outfit was the Gunner class. From what I can see in this tiny junky clip I found it consists of a purple halter top-like shirt with her yellow ( now detailed with brown, i think @_@ ) bikini top, over it. She's wearing purple bikini-ish bottoms and a wierd off-brown and blue( ?? ) sideskirt. *point point*

http://images.cosplay.com/showphoto.php?photo=20361

Her second revealed outfit was...dadadaaa! The warrior class. There's LOTS of debate about this one. Personally, I think it's a faded bluey-black with yellow and reddish/pinkish rose coloured stuffs. I dunno. Hopefully there'll be clearer pics soon. O_O *points again to LoneWolfs cool collage thingy ^^ *

http://www.angelfire.com/anime2/Ky0vsIori/rikuchange.jpg

Now. Here we have Rikku-chan's gambler class. Which is a 'barely-there-slab-of-slabs' dress. Like Lebrancs. Actually it looks a LOT like Lebrancs. It's even got a little tattoo thing. And HEY! Rikkus the Clubs...Lebrancs the Hearts...HMMM! ( sakuradayu just pointed out that Paine will probably be Spades and Yuna, Diamonds ) ^_^

http://www.angelfire.com/anime2/Ky0vsIori/ffx2.jpg

YAAAAAAY!!! And MUCH more to look forward to including: White Mage, Black Mage, Popstar, Dark Knight, and....DADAA!! MASCOT! kawaii. ^^

nownow. i know what happened in LoneWolfs "FFX2 costume changes" thread. Im NOT saying im right on anything or trying to sound speciall-er or more rikku-knowledgable yadda yadda. dunt kill me. ^_^;;

ANYWAYS!! Rikku cosplayers come come come post here! ^0^ wee!

I'm already trying to plan Gambler Rikku, it's just so cute and interesting! Though..I really can't picture how her bottoms are .... We definitely need more Rikku pictures! Thank you so much for all the info^_^

Limeyaku
01-23-2003, 06:47 PM
psst psst. *just posted this in another thread but... >_> ... <_< ...*

the easiest way to make something like Gambler Rikku, I think, would be to do what I did for Lebranc.

Basically, make a long, sleek straight dress. Try it on, draw where there are supposed to be holes, then cut'em out and trim'em with biastape.

Ah yes. biastape is your friend. Looks like it'll be especially helpful for Gambler Rikku... O_O or maybe ribbon...for the purple trim stuffs... *^-^* i LUV the yellow/purple colour scheme. SO bright n pretty. *_*

hmm...where the white ropey thing drapes around her neck and collarbone, i'm taking that as the perfect oppurtunity to cover the chest area with dance-tights material. that way the white ropey-half-necklace will cover the top seam. ^-^

for the arm things, i'd use craft-foam since it'd hold shape the best and MUCH less painful/irritating than wire. =P

fishnet thigh-highs, obviously. LOL!

... is that her other leg in the picture? with no fishnet? or is that another drapey part of her 'dress' ? O_o i only see one leg. LOL

thts all the ghetto-hints from me, anyways!! if you start anytime soon, take LOTS of in progress piccys. *very curious* ^___^

I'm prolly not here to say much except that gruuu for changing designs after I finish costume *grugrugru.* At Ohayocon I wore the rikku costume that I had to make from one reference pictures *sigh* which is all I had at the time. I'm redoing it all... as I hope to do most of Rikku's costumes... they are all awesome. The gambler one looks pretty nakey... stupid holiday pudge... anyway. I think Leblanc/branc/whatever had caught my eye, so that might be my next instead of redoing Rikku.

Limeyaku
01-23-2003, 07:57 PM
wahh! Schu!! that was YOU at Ohayocon!! Congrats on being one of the first X2 Rikkus! XD coool! ^0^ good good job! ^_^

Thanks for the hints Limeyaku, that was soo sweet of you! I didn't even notice the white line, but it IS a great excuse for finally being able to cover up a bit ^_^ I'll remember to take tons of pics as soon as I get cash after I go to Megacon (my recent Mylene Jenius costume I just finished has run me DRY). And that holdiay pudge has gotta go before I make that costume O.O

SO....dissappointed....over....losing...thread.
*Sigh* Live and let Die they say.

A character from another game whose costume closely matches Rikku's Gambler class is Bonne Jenet from Garou:Mark of The Wolves.

She has a basically simplified version of Rikku's costume which you can see:

www.gamegen.com/fightgen/characters/bjenet-pose1.jpg
www.gamegen.com/fightgen/characters/bjenet-pissed.gif

Perhaps you can use these as references.Also,there are pictures on here of some girl who did cosplay B.Jenet.

Also,seeing as my other post just DIED on me,I'll post up my Rikku Warrior Transformation Sequence Collage here:

I found some PERFECT ones I wanted to alter but I lots the bid of it....trust me I'm kicking myself EVERYDAY for it...***grumbles grumbles*** but yea...right now i'm just trying to find the shoes...other than that the rest of the costume looks great....The Hair ROCKS : ) Oh yea i'm definately excited.....*.*

Im doing her too! Wee....you know I swore I wouldnt join in and do a costume that a million people are doing, but what the hey, Rikku is just too darn cool. Plus my two chick friends really want to do Paine and Yuna so you can see us at Fanime!

Limeyaku
01-24-2003, 04:32 PM
O_O didnt work the first time after my uber-long post too. -_- ugh.

anyways, i was looking at screenshots, very hard for a long time and drew this conclusion. ( literally XD )

it's probably VERY far off and Id suggest you wait for the official pics if you're making it, but this is what i've got so far... i did this for her theif outfit too just working off the YUNA poster. O_o;;

needless to say, i only got the skirt and scarf right. ^^;;

but anyone wanting to start ASAP and in need of some fellow-rikku fans opinion...thts mine for now. the pants and boots are VERY wrong, im sure, since there were VERY little amount and sized screenshots. kinda...artistic preference. ^^;; with some imagination.

so bleh! here it is.

HEHEHEHAHAHAHAH! i suk VERY VERY bad in paint. ^_^;;;;; i actually drew the whole thing with the line tool. LOL!!!! thats all i CAN do... ^^;; *hides*

Mau, I wanna see Yuna's Gambler Class >D

Mau... I kinda wanna do something skimpy, mau mau!

::hides::

Limeyaku
01-24-2003, 05:55 PM
I think all the Gambler classes might look skimpy so you're probably in luck. LOL! That's what Lebranc is too, i think...rikkus clubs, lebranc is hearts...yuna'll prolly be diamonds...wonder if they'll tone hers down a bit tho since 'it's yuna!!' ...

then again, she IS in hotpants and a tiny slit halter top for her default outfit... -_-;;

you /want/ to do something skimpy? brave girl. o_o then again you obviously CAN with the perfect body n all. XP

I wanna see Rikkus mascot mode *0* BIG TEDDY RIKKU!!! hhehe!

Yuna
01-24-2003, 05:57 PM
hahaha, I know, it's REALLY bad to say that you WANT to do something skimpy... but yeah, less clothing means less work XD

Limeyaku
01-24-2003, 06:01 PM
LOL!!! true true...as long as everythings securly covered i think it's fine to do skimpy stuff. i mean...if women are allowed to walk around topless...at least its MORE than that. XD

i dont understand how they dont freeze though...*ponders* @_@ mindboggling...n yeah, i've actually seen screenshots of them in their FFX-2 gear at Mt gagazet. . . *shivers* *_*

Yuna
01-24-2003, 06:02 PM

LOL!!! true...very true. ^-^;; wish it were the same for me. *is very cold* *-* it was WARM today though. ~_~ bleh...

hrm...just wondering, anyone know how many classes there are predicted to be??

at first i read 6, but i think they've gone over already ^^;; and erilan told me there 30 in FFT... X_x

another thing...is anyone else as scared of the popstar costumes ?? if theyre dressing like this NOW, i really dont want to see what they'll look like as popstars. -_- ... actually, i cant deny that i do...its ffx...i love everything ffx. *_* hehehahaha

Yuna
01-24-2003, 06:14 PM
I just really want to get this off my chest:

Rikku isn't wearing a thong, or at least a visible thong. That sting going around her hips is the string that ties in bows on her skirt.

Done.

OMG, I know! I was getting really pissed off when people were comparing the new FFX-@ designs to those of popstars. I was all, "Ok, these characters were designed like, what, a year ago? Maybe even more! THe game is due to come out in a little over a month, and the character designs are one of the first things that are done with a game, so then, in essence, these popstars should be compared the the FFX-@ characters! >o MAU.

01-25-2003, 12:24 AM
hrm.... nessa, im not sure if you took what i said the wrong way or not. O_o

but by popstar costumes i did not did not did not mean comparing them to christina or w/e . bleh. thatd just be stupid.

but you probably know i was referring to the PopStar job class they have in FFX2 now. O_O im scared of what THOSE will look like.

collie, the pic didnt work for me. =\ maybe its just me? ^^;; but theres LOOOOOTS at playonline.com

hmm...actually ... *holds up monacle (sp?? ) * after much investigating, i think the 'thong' strings arent the ones that tie in front. on a lot of pictures they're different coloured ( ie. the strings are orange/golden yellow and the ties are bright yellow ) but she definately is NOT wearing a thong. you crazy sickos who think she is! *shakes fist at u* i think thatd be TOO extreme for Rikku-chan.

theres proof tho...in one of the first trailers ( with the backflipping yuna ) theres a shot in a white/bluish pillar place and an enemy comes down and the camera moves down n gives rikku a panty shot. -_- and its not a thong. her bum is covered by a normal bikini bottom. ( YAY!!! O_O; *relief* )

but nessa...hmmmm...that thongstring-tie in front idea is very nifty...*goes to try it out* only problem might be having them twist n whatnot once theyre tied. stuped stringy ribbon blah stuff.

heki!!!! look for those cards. but dont rush. lots of time ^_^ LOTS. ehehe ^^;;

I have a picture of Rikku bending over, and its very clear she isn't wearing a thong ^^; also, you can see her back very clearly. I can't find the URL where I got it from, so if anyone wants to see it email me at Kitsune732@hotmail.com and I'll email it to you ^^

Oh, and is the trim on Rikku's bikini orange or yellow?!? It looks different in every picture, so I'm all confused @_@

Limeyaku
01-25-2003, 04:53 PM
nah. im too lazy to put together a site of all her variations. =P all of them are posted in here at one point or another anyways. ^^ if it's like FFT, there'll be near 30 of them though. -_- OH WELL! ^_^ no more no-costume-idea problems for me. LOL!

but at the official site, collie, you can see pictures of most of her variations, including the official gambler one. hmmm...btw, do you have pics of your default outfit? ^_^ id really like to see! ^0^

keep in touch when youre working on the other variations, ne? i think i may need some help. LOL!! and goodluck to you and to all us other wannabe-overachievers. ^^;;

No pics yet. ::kicks self:: It's not good enough to put up anyways IMO if I EVER get the darn link cable from comp to the digi-cam. ^^; I'll wear it to Anime Oasis so I'll have to nab a few pics from someone if they put some on a site. ;---;
And YES! Good luck to everyone. (BTW, Limeyaku I was looking at your skirt and it looks really neat! ((The way you did the X's)) Heh!)

01-25-2003, 10:30 PM
Hey Rikku X-2 cosplayers! Hi, yeah. When you look at the CG of Rikku on the airship, look closely at her "thong". You can see from that that it isn't really a thong, it's just the string that makes an "X" on her skirt.

Here, see the attached image~

Ina
01-25-2003, 10:35 PM
HAH! i knew it, i just wasn't really sure since everyone else said it was a thong...... @_@

Yuna
01-25-2003, 10:41 PM
it's sort of hard to catch, considering the "thong" part apears thicker, but in the CG modle and Nomura's art, it looks the same, the "thong" part and the X on the skirt.

Limeyaku
01-25-2003, 10:53 PM
kitsune-chan, soak the bottom half of the headband in bleach. ^_^ it might fade it out but dont do it unless you have enough material to make another one, just in case all doesnt go well. ^^;

o shush up, collie. ur outfits prolly awesome ^_^ i still wanna see. ^0^

thanks for the compliment on my skirt, btw ^^ the x's arent attached to the 'thong strings' like nessa suggested they might be but i DO like that idea so i might make them like that very soon. ^-^

right now, all i did was punch eyeholes in ( they got sorta bent though ^^;; ehehe... ) and painted yellow string and threaded it through. LOL!!! yes, yellow string. that's my ghetto test-trial version though. i might actually remake the entire thing ( except the sleeves cuz i lurv them XD ) and sell the prototype stuff on ebay or something. =\ that is if anyone would want it. LOL!!!

not trying to start a fight or anything, but i dunt think the string is attached to what ties in front. =\ basically because in a lot of pictures ( especially battles ) the bathingsuit bottom strings are orange ( or an off yellow/golden colour, you choose ^^; ) and the front ties are ALWAYS yellow. yellow yellow, like her bikini top.

edit:::::

IM STUPID!!! HAHAHAHAHAHAHAAAHAHAH! *crazy insane laugh* im colourblind too! the X's in front ARE ORANGE! *shocked outta my socks*

http://www.gameforms.com/games/ps2/ffx-2/media/media12/ffx2-art-rikku.jpg <-- but a VERY different orange than the bikini strings.

http://www.gameforms.com/games/ps2/ffx-2/media/media17/ffx2render3.jpg <-- obviously, square can't choose thiei colours.

http://www.gameforms.com/games/ps2/ffx-2/media/media21/Rikku%20CG%20Model.jpg <-- okiedoke. nessa, im starting to agree with you more. LOL!!!! i HATE square's inconsistencies!!!!!!! LOL!!!

NESSA! *tackle hugs* THANK YOU so much for pointing that out. ^___^ I really don't think i would've noticed that they're PROBABLY attached and i definately wouldntve noticed they ARE orange. YOU FIXED MY COLOURBLINDESS THAT I DIDNT KNOW I HAD! Yaaaaaaayyy. That helps make my costume just that much more accurate.

then again, with all the inconsistencies, 'accuracy' of this costume is gonna be in the eye of the beholder. YAY! more room for artistic preference! ^_^;;

http://www.gameforms.com/games/ps2/ffx-2/media/media16/ffx246.jpg <-- .... -_- the top doesnt tie up in the back?? HOW IS IT POSSIBLE TO GET ON THEN!?!?!? The black straps look like LEATHER and as far as i know, thick leather straps would look somewhat strange tied up as a halter.

*SIGHSIGH* must alter that now. might as well remake the whole thing, like i sort of planned to. LOL

thanks again nessa. ^____^

Yuna-X2
01-25-2003, 11:28 PM

I bet you it's cause it's supposed to be swinsuit fabric like lycra and we all know how much lycra stretches no matter how tight you stitch it....tha'ts probably how it doens't tie. ^^ Good luck~ when are you planning on wearing yours? I missed it

01-26-2003, 12:41 AM
i suppose, but even lycra bikini tops have buckles or something on the straps for the backs like that. not just straight across. O_o wierd. but they're just characters and can do/look however they want. -_-

besides, where would the fun be if there were no tricky/challenging parts to cosplay? ^^

i'll be wearing it to Anime North btw. ^^

Schu
01-26-2003, 11:23 AM
One idea for the straps on Rikku's "halter top" is you could make two leather straps that come up to about your shoulders, then put a piece of stretchy comfy black lyrcra or something in between, so it's comfy on your neck, and the leather straps will lie flat.

Limeyaku: would you mind if I was to post a link to your images you've found? I'm trying to put all the links I find together on my site, if for nothing more than my convenience... thanks, I'll keep checking this thread or pm me if you like. goodluck with your costume :)

Limeyaku
01-26-2003, 01:59 PM
SURE! I think it makes cosplay /that/ much easier for us Rikku's if there's a nice collaboration of links. ^___^ go for it!

All I have to say it THANK YOU!!

01-28-2003, 10:25 PM
Yes I am!! lol at Otakon....but I am not doing their movie or TV series outfits, I found a really obsure (but neat!) design of these weird outfits, I think maybe it was their first design for the movie but I'm not sure. I'm looking for an Eriya (if anyones interested PM me lol) but ANYWAY...BACK TO RIKKU!!!

Schu
01-28-2003, 10:41 PM
yeah... the first time I tossed them all into frontpage, some didn't show, so I put the ones I thought weren't in there... and however odd it was, some came out twice, I tried to catch them all, but oh well. *grin* Yeah, I'm all up on popstar gear. *searches for pictures*

I'm too lazy right now to sort them out into links and by character. If only my house had the t3 connection I'm on right now ;_; oh well...

01-29-2003, 02:26 AM
About the bikini top, doesn't it tie in the front? It could be like a front clasp bra of sorts how you put it on, then just do up the laces... At least that's what it looks like to me ^__^

Limeyaku
01-29-2003, 02:33 AM
yeah. the two breast pieces are seperate in the middle and the orange tie is double threaded through each of the pieces to hold it together. ( up through the bottom two from the bottom, criss cross down through the top holes ) it hangs loosely before it ties in a bow though, which really defies the laws of gravity quite well. =\ LOL!

I have a feeling there won't be a singer Rikku. It's probably just my imagination but I THINK that maybe Yuna is the only one who'll sing as Popstar.... but they might also have the funny dancer thing for battle? Or maybe all. I dunno. I'm just writing out what I think COULD happen. ^^; Is anyone else planning on importing a copy when it comes out to see what it's like?

Edit: Oh wait....that's popstar Rikku?? Weee! Forget all what I said above then. ^^;;
~*~Collie~*~

Limeyaku
01-30-2003, 06:05 PM
you can't import. =\ well you CAN but you can only look at the case till it comes out here in NA. like DVD players, the region coding is different and imported games won't play unless you have the Japanese driver installed ( which is probably pricey. O_o )

if im wrong, then yes. i probably will. LOL

btw, yeah, i think its safe to say that that's popstar rikku. ^_^ she's got the same black laces ( but around her legs instead of yunas arms ) and all that frill. XD wee!

Collie
01-30-2003, 06:09 PM
(I have a modded one. ^^) I speak no more for I don't know...um, if it's even ok to speak of it? ::Can't remember:: Bleh but anyways.. a little pricey.

I'll post when I stumble across something of Rikku. ^^;

Edit:I want to see Paine's Popstar one now...... ^^; (Thanks Limeyaku for the pics and such also!) It makes me want the game more and more.....

Ok, if that is Popstar Rikku with the same shirt as Popstar Yuna, then I am so ganking my friends shirt to use!

Yuna-X2
01-30-2003, 11:04 PM
I'd definatly say everyone gets popstar, and that is Rikku's popstar costume. In the video, you get about.05 of a second zoomout of Yuna on a stage, and there are 2 backup singers, Rikku and Paine probably.

Limeyaku
01-30-2003, 11:07 PM

Something Lulu
02-04-2003, 08:39 PM
Okay, she was first, but you can't deny that there are similarities in the way they look. I just think it's funny. Besides, Rikku's style is way cuter. ^_^

Sana-chan
02-04-2003, 09:47 PM
They even said in a magazine that the two looked similar lol. I think it's funny, and like Alexis said, Rikku's still way cuter XD.

*is furiously working on Gambler Rikku* I wish there were better shots of her back ;.; Has anyone noticed that the top parts that come over her shoulders just sort of...disapear... and then it looks like the whole top is connected by a band straight across her back? O.O Or have I just lost it? ^^;

Daitenshi
02-05-2003, 03:47 PM
Myabe I'm alone on this..... but I'm waiting for the game to come out before I spend all that time and money on any of her costumes ^^

Limeyaku
02-05-2003, 05:14 PM
i think you might be. LOL

personally i think there's WAY more than enough reference to make her default outfit. You're not going to get much more than what we've seen already.

Same goes for gambler, i highly doubt they'll release official pictures of her back -_-;; and all that's seen of it is her transformation and whatever she does in battle, which has been shown already too.

as of now theres not too much to go by for popstar, but it looks relatively simple anyways.

the only one im worried about to start now is gunner since there hasnt been that many clear shots of it.

i think most people are doing it NOW because they can. ^_^ same for me. and im a rikku addict, of course. and also, by the time next december rolls around she'll have been sickeningly overdone. ~_~

PretearWink
02-05-2003, 07:27 PM

02-05-2003, 09:12 PM
If you download hte movie with yuna singing you'll see back of costumes. dunno about gamler, but you can see ^_^ there's also another costume of Rikku that's a yellow top with a purple tie

Limeyaku
02-05-2003, 10:02 PM
actually, i think its a purple halter and a yellow ( white frilled ) vest. ^_^ she wears the purple halter with gunner too.

i THINK thats what it is anyways...s'waht it looks like to me. ^-^

Yuna-X2
02-05-2003, 10:18 PM
Yeah, I think it's purple with a orange one of those blue leg things Yuna has.

PretearWink
02-07-2003, 03:20 AM
I think that's popstar Rikku because of the spray of confetti at the end of thr transformation, it just makes sense with the feathers for white mage and fire for black mage, etc. At least to me :p I think it's a two-toned high-necked, no sleeved shirt that is dual colored orange and purple with the frills seperating the colors. I never thought of it maybe being a tie or something before O.O Squaresoft needs to get its butt moving when it comes to getting us cosplayers official artworks :angel:

SuthrnBelleChan
02-07-2003, 07:19 AM
The one with the leg thing is GUnner Rikku. I'm tlaking about the outfit with a Yellow crop top, a purple tie and a purple skirt. Pretear, it only looks like a tie to me i guess o_O lol watch the video though, it really seems like it. And YES Squaresoft needs ot get a move on! I gotta work on my routine for Popstar Yuna!! :P I can't put together my performance until i see everything -.-


BTW, i'm comissioning a Rikku, and I need someone to explain real quick... How do you put on gromets? gromets are like the silver rings that are on holes on like corsets and stuff. I was just wondering ^_^

looke like she has the same halfskirt as yuna but in her "colors"

Carmila
02-07-2003, 04:22 PM
I have a feeling that we are never going to have to worry about "oh another such and such Rikku" because there are so many incarnations of the character in FFX-2. Not like the gillion Yuna's that have been spotted over the last year or so at cons everywhere. I guess when you've seen one, you've seen them all!

Kas

The trick is to make yours good. That way instead of "Oh.. another ghetto crappy Gambler Rikku." people will say "Wow! Nice Gamber Rikku." ^_^

There are plenty of pics out so far, but I like playing the game and seeing the costume from every angle, watching how the character moves in it, etc.

Limeyaku
02-19-2003, 11:46 AM
dunnno if this makes any sense but from what i saw ( and started planning ahahaha ^^;;; ) i was thinking red sleeves, with a painted/desinged leather cutout folded overtop and connected at the pointies...leather looks nice painted ( with model paint ) and holds shape pretty well. ^-^

does that make sense? O_o i'm not looking at a pic right now so sorry if the sleeves /aren't/ red or whatever. ^^;;

02-19-2003, 02:12 PM
That makes sense, but I'm afriad to start without better pics. But wow, I bet your sleeves are gonna look awesome! :angel:

i hope so. *_* im excited to paint gold detail on the black leather.

02-19-2003, 10:33 PM
Elle and Lime i understnad both of you ^_^ but alas I too am gonna wait for more pics, cuz we dunno what it looks like in the back. ANd remember(i dunno who this was sorry ^_^) but someone cosplayed Yuna when the only pic out was of her back so the eprson didn't know there was a symbol on the front. I'm not insulting that person, i'm just saying that I say how Square did soemthing like that with pics so i'm waiting for more ^_^

Collie
02-19-2003, 10:52 PM
7.7; I didn't wait for a backshot of my Rikku X-2 costume before I made it. The only problem with my costumes was the fact that I had no shoelaces in my boots. ^^;; But now I do. Sometimes it's fun to just make it with one screen and rely on your own intuition. I did it, and it was fun correcting my mistake. ::shrugs:: But then again I am able to spend a little cash, here and there on cloth.
~*~Collie~*~

Limeyaku
02-19-2003, 11:02 PM
i guess it also depends on controlling your own motivation and excitement to cosplay that particular character in that particular outfit, you know? ^_^

personally, i don't think the back of the costume will end up having a big smiley face or anything LOL!!!! it's relatively the same as Paine's with a buncha colour differences, and from the trailer, Paine's was plain on the back. I mean...how much COULD there be anyways?

and not many people take pictures of the backs of your costume.

then again, it's all personal preference. ^-^ I'm going to get stuff for my sleeves and that...macaroni skirt thing ( i dont know WHY i call it that @_@ ), like collie said, it's not hard to alter minor things later on.

meh! *shrugs* ^_^

i just hope they get the official pic up this week...err...correction...i hope they get a LOT of official pics up this week. ^___^ lots of rikku! ^0^

Collie
02-20-2003, 12:05 AM

Limeyaku
02-20-2003, 05:26 PM
i was thinking bout the tights myself....2 seconds ago when i was looking at the picture. ^^;; what i'm planning on doing is just making tubes ( SMAAAAALLL ones so they stay up good XD ) with pink and green stretchy fabric. i'll probably end up putting elastic throught the top just for extra hold-up safety ^^

i dunt think it should be too hard...im more worried about finding stretchy material in those colours...for a good price. x_x

SuthrnBelleChan
02-20-2003, 05:27 PM
I'm thinking get some knee high stockings since they'll already be made for that, and sew the fabric over them, but i do like your idea better. Maybe she'll have some cool shoes to cover the bottom good ^_^

I know where that Japanese Rikku got her bikini!!

I saw it in Shibuya 109 (in Tokyo), but I didn't get it because it had orange on the egdes.... and at that time Rikku's pics only showed itas being all yellow.... arrrrr....... *cries* I wish I got it >.<

Limeyaku
02-26-2003, 09:22 PM
i thought her bikini looked a little TOO professional *suspicious stare*

carolina, i'm gonna check out a 'bead store' around here that i never knew about apparently...and it's just ALL beads ( one from australia is $45!! O_o ) but do you think they'll sell out of them where you got them anytime soon? O_o tht might not be too good. LOL and i took lotsa screens of gunner rikku!! ^^ enough to make it from!

http://images.cosplay.com/showphoto.php?photo=25100&papass=&sort=1&thecat=998

the blue pant leg scares me...and making all those buttons ( like what held her blue ribbons up ) scares me too. -_- the white trimmed ( ? ) purple underwear, also scares me. LOL i think it's enough to start from anyways...i have a feeling they won't release official CGS of all the outfits anyways...gonna hafta wait for the players guide scans...if they're even in there. X_X

daitenshi.. O_O u lucky butt. u shoulda bought it! LOL! but yeah...it's actually only orange in some pictures, in others, it's yellow...in MOST it's more of a yellow, other than in battle. ^^

There's gotta be somebody here who could CG all those pics together. ^_^

I just remembered I'm supposed to be making an FFX-2 Rikku wig for Sana-chan's birthday in April. (She already knows so it's not a secret or anything.) Hopefully I'll get some good pics to post here. It's actually pretty funny, since I was originally going to cosplay as Rikku instead of Lulu but I didn't want to have to make or wear that wig. Oh the irony. ^_^

Hmmm..... I was wondering if someone could post links to all of Rikku's outfits? I've seen a few here and there, and when I saw the poll I was really hoping for links to the costumes =/ I still haven't sen popstar, white mage, warrior, or gunner ^^;;;
Thanks!!!

Something Lulu

I can help you out with warrior. It's the only one I have saved on my comp of the ones you mentioned. I think White Mage and Popstar were listed somewhere on this thread. I'll skim through and see. (The pic I'm attaching was posted a while back by The Lone Wolf and I happened to save it.)

EDIT:
Gunner Rikku as posted by Limeyaku

Maybe the plot has something to do with like...alternate worlds, kinda like Spira vs. Tidus' summoned Zanarkand; It wouldn't surprise me at all if new Tidus guy/Lenne are actually parallels of Tidus and Yuna from some alternate world/dimension that gets entangled with Spira's existance.

Yeah...that's right...*walks away confused*

03-07-2003, 06:28 PM
i think that's really tidus, i mean, this is TWO years after ffx, his 19 by now, and he does look older (gawd his HOT) anyways, and since yuna has to be under different indenties since she's famous now, could REN = Yuna ???? right?! O_O that's mah theory ^^;;;

or, that tidus look alike lost his memory or something and thinks his tidus or something ?_?

er yeah ^^;;;

I'm new to cosplaying angd making the outfits and such, but I really want to makea Rikku X-2 costume. I've decided to go with the main outfit that's been released in magazines and has the most pictures online, but I'm not sure just the amount of material required to make it. x.x With the headband, bikini top, sleeves, and skirt-thong (I'm not acually going to wear a thong. I hate those. Straps attached to skirt.), I'm really unsure...

...which is exactly why I STILL, as much as I love the outfits, disapprove of FFX-2. It's the classic sequel; ignoring plotholes, or using drastic, illogical or ridiculous plotlines to get rid of them. FFX wasn't MEANT to have a sequel, and they're doubling back on themselves to bring back Tidus, attract fanboys with skanky outfits, etc...


...and the sad part is, I bet I'll love the game anyway. x_x

I dunno, I still dont think it's a thong. Looking at the angle of the straps from behind, they wouldnt meet in the right place for it to be a thong bathing suit. I sitll think it's a string bikini =p

Um, honestly, that Sphere looks like it came from the time when they were being held in Bevelle after Yuna was arrested for treason. There is absolutly no evidence that it's anywhere but at that scene. He's in water, he's behind bars, and he's explaining why he did what he did. Show me where, on any website, that Tidus is REAL. If that were the case, then you can throw ALL of FFX out the window, which would leave absolutly NO premise for FFX-2. Facts are facts. You can't change them. THat guy is NOT TIDUS. HE'S A WANNA BE. LOOK-A-LIKE. POSER. HE-IS-NOT-TIDUS. To me, he doesn't look like Tidus. Tidus rarely looks incredibly serious, RARELY. it INS'T him, not matter how much you want it it to be, it isn't. If it is, then I think FFX-2 is the worst fucking sequel EVER created. If that was Tidus, I would rip my FFX-2 Yuna costume to shreds because I wouldn't want to be associated with anything so contradictorary and something that took the entire storyline away from its predesessor.

03-10-2003, 03:23 AM
Holy... well I think that there is a chance it can be him. If SquareSoft was going for being realistic, then there would be no magic, there would be no beasts attacking, and the Final Fantasy series would suck. But the game is not realistic, and anything can happen. Did you know he was a dream through the whole game? No, it was a plot twist. OBVIOUSLY Square is going to throw us another, and it will obviously involve Tidus. That is one reason people like these games: they are unpredictable. I know that is why I like it. Did you even see the VERY end, after the credits? That little scene with Tidus in the water swimming away can then make anything possible. Where was he? Where was he going? We don't know yet. We won't know until the game comes out. Tidus could have gone to another world. He could have been given some sort of 2nd chance cause he sacrificed himself and the dreaming to save Spira forever. I have actually seen that idea floating around a lot of places.. I forget where... but, whatever... It's not fair to start ripping apart others ideas. You know no more or less than the rest of us, so their idea is just as possible as yours. ANd if it ends up being Tidus, it will be a shame, cause your Yuna X2 costume is good.

Okay, first of all, you need to include spoiler tags for when you post things that could potentially spoil anyhting for someone else.

Second off. Tidus was a DREAM OF THE FAYTH. There IS NO MORE FAYTH. If there was still Fayth, Yuna could summon, and entire premis of the ending of FFX would be, again, thrown out the window. IT'S NOT TIDUS. I'm not saying Tidus couldn't come back, no, that's not what I'm saying at all. I love Yuna and Tidus, and I love them even more together, but the fact remains, that THAT GUY WITH REN IS NOT TIDUS. If it was, the game would be shit, and I wouldn't believe it for a second. Yes, FFX is NOT real, but it has a certain reality in the game itself, even though it defies our perception of reality. It would be totally STUPID and ridiculous if Tidus just suddenly appeared again. FFX-2 has to have a plot. Finding a way to bring Tidus back is one of the accpects of the plot. Further, the entire idea that Tidus would come back and NOT feel a dramatic connection to Yuna and not have this drive to find the part of him that Yuna is, and to be with Ren, it fucking ridiculous. That would be the worst defilement of Tidus's character ever. Tidus found Yuna for a reason, they are connected, even in dreams, they are coonnected. To totally dismiss that connection for a stupid Yuna wanna-be pop-star makes sick, and if that's the case, then I want nothing to do with FFX-2, AT ALL.

Yes I saw the end credits, but that can be percieved any number of ways. I percieve that as the closure of the game; Tidus finally being at peace with himself and his father. And YES, FF games are unpredictable, so why the FUCK would they make something as predictable as showing concept art of Tidus so early? Did they have Yunaleska artwork out before the game? NO I have the artbook where all the art prior to FFX's release was recieved from. Don't try me on FFX sweetie, I know what I'm talking about.

I have to agree that this new Tidus-look-alike is not Tidus. If you take a look at Chappu, took him to a hairdresser, and bought him some decent clothes, he'd be the best Tidus cosplayer out there :p But, that of course is all in speculation, no one knows anything for sure at this point. ^^

As for if Tidus can come back, well, it has been awhile since I played FFX, so my theory might be wrong, but, wasn't one of the reasons he was able to stay with Yuna for that time he was on Spira because he had had contact with Sin? Sin to me seemed a bit like Superman; his powers were kinda made up as they went. Next thing you know Sin will be able to shoot paste out of it's eyes and sinspawn will be robotoic ninja's. :p Sin's 'toxin' was SO vague throughout that whole thing, Square could easily make something up with Tidus and Sin to get him to come back. And even if they don't, I hope he does, Tidus and Yuna belong together ^^

Also, the aeon thing, isn't there a part in one of the trailers where you see Yuna, Rikku, and Paine in front of Bahamut and then Yuna stands in front of them with her hands out and Pain pushes her back? I might be having a fit of glaucoma, but, erm, I thought that's what it was ^^;

Yep yep, it's Dark Bahamut. Yuna screams "STOP!" Because if you notice where they are, it's right above the blitzball stadium in Zanarkand. That's also where she gives the performance, and where Yuna and Tidus are when they're running (notice the blitzball flags hanging from the ceiling).

I don't know. Personally I just want to wait for the game to come out here instead of fighting over theories. We'll all find out in due time, so calm down a little, everybody! ^^

You can see Chappu at the Farplane in X...I don't think it's him... then again, they never really explained WHAT the farplane was. Oh well...back on topic, yes?

RIKKU! COSTUME! :D

If anyone has a Gadzooks near them, in their current bikini stock, they have a white bikini with yellow/orange trim. If it was dyed, it would be the PERFECT non-falling-apart Rikku bikini! It's pricey though...but hey, if people like Wink are willing to spend over $100 on a glove, I'm sure SOMEONE would find it alright to spend $50 on a decent top...

I think that Sins's "toxin" was just a story Yevon made up to explain the shock that people when through after loosing so many people they loved. Like, how men in various wars gor Shell Shock, along the lines of that premis.

As for Sin's powers, Sin never randomly gets new powers, Sin just gets more explained and involved. Sin, since the begining of the game, was the one connection between the Fayth's dream and Spira. Auron, being dead, was able to ride Sin between the two worlds because he was an unsent. What isn't explained is how the the Sin before Jeckt was able to find the pathway into the Fayth's dream and find Jeckt within and bring him into the real world/Spira. In my opinion that Sin before Jeckt was going not only after Jeckt, but after Tidus as well because Tidus always had a stronger connection to Spira and it's people then Jeckt did. Some how Yu Yevon's influence over the Aeon inside Sin wavered and Sin found its way into the Fayth's dream, and the cycle began. From Jeckt, to Auron, to Tidus.

Many things in FFX are implyed more then they are said. You have to talk to like *everyone* to get a compelte picture on certain things and simply have a vast experience in the game itself. It's like FFVII. One can NEVER understand FFVII their first time around, there are so many things that aren't said, that require knowledge and understanding of the background of each character to understand.

Further, the entire idea that Tidus would come back and NOT feel a dramatic connection to Yuna and not have this drive to find the part of him that Yuna is, and to be with Ren, it fucking ridiculous. That would be the worst defilement of Tidus's character ever. Tidus found Yuna for a reason, they are connected, even in dreams, they are coonnected. To totally dismiss that connection for a stupid Yuna wanna-be pop-star makes sick, and if that's the case, then I want nothing to do with FFX-2, AT ALL.

Yes I saw the end credits, but that can be percieved any number of ways. I percieve that as the closure of the game; Tidus finally being at peace with himself and his father. And YES, FF games are unpredictable, so why the FUCK would they make something as predictable as showing concept art of Tidus so early? Did they have Yunaleska artwork out before the game? NO I have the artbook where all the art prior to FFX's release was recieved from. Don't try me on FFX sweetie, I know what I'm talking about.


EDIT:
:confused: Well, I made some mistakes in responding to the above, and once again, my words have seemingly betrayed my intentions. I was surprised to have found such a passionate debate brewing here on a costume forum (where I would have expected in game chat or maybe even serious discussion) and I got caught up in it unexpectantly. I have removed the original post here and will probably go make use of the rant board for my first time in its stead.

...and then I asked for some on-topic help, but I don't think I have any real desire to pursue that matter now either.

So please continue about your Rikku business, everyone. Sorry about the disturbance.

Woo, debate debate ^_^ I agree, everyone is right because there is no one truth to how you interpret a game. It's sort of like a poem, you can speculate to the author's intentions, but what makes the poem great is what it signifies to you^_^

Anyway, back to our beloved little Al Bhed^_^

I was thinking about making my Gambler Rikku cards out of sheet metal or soemthing like that. Does anyone have any ideas where I could buy small rectangles like that pre-made or should I just go ahead, take a trip to Home Depot and start a-cutting?^_^ It's just that good sheet metal cutters are like 20 bucks where sheet metal is like 2 @.@

> I was thinking about making my Gambler Rikku cards out of sheet metal or soemthing like that.

I would not do that. Sheet metal is very cutting, and even if you use a good metal file, you would need to file the edges nice and rounded if you don't want to accidentally injure yourself or others. Especially with something you will handle a lot.

I'd just go with cardboard. It would be easier to paint designs on it too. (Sheet metal hates paint.)

PretearWink
03-13-2003, 03:24 PM
Ah, good point^_^ The paint would chip right off and I'd probably kill myself or others with it considering how clutzy I am ^^; I guess I'll stick with cardboard and spray paint it metallic looking^_^ Thanks for the advice^_^

If you have a problem with the mods, take it up with me personally and don't hint at some sort of impropriety on the message forum just to force them to have to defend themselves against some sort of implied, abuse-of-authority rhetoric.

Acknowledged, sir. Didn't have a problem really...I simply encountered something I wasn't expecting to and then felt bad for getting off-topic myself, which is not why I came to this thread, as I said. So I guess the intended light-heartedness of that lead-in to my actual request for Rikku help was misread. I honestly apologize to anyone who felt they needed to defend themselves. I actually thought that people would just ignore one of my FF spiels yet again instead of respond to it.

So I won't say any more on this here. But, now my desire to help my sister with Rikku's props is diffusing... X_x* Sorry about that, Troppy. Looks like it's probably up to you. I got too many cosplays myself this year for me to make something I don't even have proper refs for.

Troppy
03-15-2003, 11:47 AM
argh, I'll make them if I can, Yui...now that we got a certain skit approved, a LOT OF PROP-MAKING is going into that, and I'd be lucky if I even have time... I also ran into a lot of trouble with gun-making and...argh, argh, argh. x_x I'll try though...but only after I know everything for MYSELF is secure.

Yeah, I'm selfish like that. Go Rikku.

im so happy *_*

i'm gonna be making all the rikkus one day...one day...just as soon as i find stretchy NICE yellow material. ~_~ i think i might use more of a golden colour for the bathing suit since its as close to yellow as i can find around here since im making it out of REAL bathing suit material so it's wearable for actual swimming. ^_^

crap. everyone else's rikku stuffs are so good. T_T im gonna hafta work extra extra hard! ^0^

YAY!

1st - Dark Knight ( NOT fencer/warrior )

Limeyaku
03-17-2003, 02:21 PM
and....2nd...Whitemage Rikku.

im not really impressed with this one...it's pretty much EXACTLY the same as Yuna's except for a few minor pattern changes. and it's longer and has a turban like thing instead of a hood. meh...oh well. i'll make it anyways. ^_^

argh...i wish we were allowed to /upload/ screenshots. i feel terrible spamming like this. ._.

yahoo and that though, is just WAY too much of a hassle to upload at...n then all you guys would have to copy n paste everything. x_x if that'd be better though, lemme know, okay? ^-^

or is there a way to add multiple attatchments??

ANYWYAS!!...bwuahaha. she has Yunas wind staff. XD

Limeyaku
03-17-2003, 02:24 PM
and 3rdly....this...thing.

aeon class? mascot class? overdrive? i dono. but it's wierd. o_O she looks like a Zora ( from zelda )...

erm...

is it possible to alter a CHAIR? LOL!!!! ^^;;

Troppy
03-17-2003, 04:35 PM
wow, that monster-rider thing is SCARY BEANS... O.o;;

and as for her with Wind Rod...grr, that makes me ang-yyy...I purposely made Wind Rod to be different from other Yunas, now Yuna doesnt even use it in X-2...*shakes fist*

Limeyaku! *worship* *worship* Thanks so much! I'm contemplating on a Dark Gunner Rikku in place of the Sephiroth. It's about time I cosplay, not crossplay. XD

I'm still very much confused looking at the pictures, though. Is her top haltered or something?

[Edit: From what I can see, it's basically her default outfit MINUS the scarf and the triangle-top bikini, PLUS the red violet stockings with black bands, the blue/yellow side-back skirt, the purple gloves and the purple top which I am not sure what it is exactly.]
