When limebarb decided to make a Rosa costume from the same game, I decided to redo my first Rydia costume. I wanted a decadent, over the top look for the new version; something that reflected the style of Yoshitaka Amano's artwork - unpredictable and detail oriented. I wanted to do something completely insane. Well, I managed the "insane" part because this costume drove me crazy.
