Dion Rogers Rinoa
Last Updated: 08-26-2009
This is a remake of Dion Rogers Rinoa. I decided to remake it because I have perfection issues and in my mind the first version wasn't good enough. So, I sought out to make a more accurate version.
I bought the fabric online, it's ribbed like Rinoa's usual outfit which I thought was perfect. The top was pieced together over a week or two. I made sure to keep a reference picture nearby to make things as accurate as possible. The wings (both pairs) are painted on with acrylic paint, I had to use poster board as a stencil. Luckily it didn't bleed through ^^;
To keep to the accuracy theme, I purchased a short wig like the Dion Rogers artwork shows. It may look good, but it's not like I wanted. It's too short in my opinion, so I purchased another one (you can probably tell if you look at the different pics). The shoes were commisioned from SetsunaKou, and they are PERFECT! I recommend her work to anyone looking for accurate detailed accessories or props.
Bottom line, I LOVE this costume. I spent months on it and I have to say that I am finally satisfied.
On a side note, I now understand why this design for Rinoa was not put into KH2. Those boots are so uncomfortable! I was in intense pain after only 2 hours of walking or standing. Luckily, I have a high threshold for pain and survived. But damn are those things painful...
