Final Fantasy VIII
Last Updated: 07-23-2009
My friend Parker (who was constructing a Squall costume) called me up one day and asked if I might consider making Rinoa's blue outfit so that he would have another Final Fantasy VIII character to walk around with at A-kon '99. At the time there was very little FFVIII artwork around the web, and I had a really difficult time figuring out exactly what Rinoa's blue outfit looked like ^^;. Thankfully though, I stumbled upon a Japanese website that featured tons of screenshots, and was able to complete the costume accurately. I'm really happy with the final result, especially the skirt!
DUSTER: This was made using See & Sew pattern (#5990). I deviated from the pattern slightly in order to make this garmet better resemble the one Rinoa wears. The wings are painted onto the back with pearlescent white paint.
BIKER SHORTS: Bought at 'TJ Max'. I sewed the zippers onto the shorts.
SKIRT: I made this without a pattern, and painted the skirt with several shades of blue paint to give it the same look as Rinoa's skirt.
SHOES: Bought at a store in Fort Lauderdale.
ARM PIECES: I made these without patterns out of the same material as the duster.
ARM TIE: Made without a pattern.
RING & CHAIN: Found in my jewlery box ^_-.
