Final Fantasy VIII
Last Updated: 06-01-2006
From the moment I started playing Final Fantasy VIII, I fell in love with the character of Ellone. She's such a sweetheart, and really the ultimate innocent of the entire story. Cosplaying her was something I've wanted to do for some time, but I never seemed to get around to it; her costume is so simple it often is overlooked for other projects.
That said, when one of my friends expressed interest in accompanying me to Anime Boston as an FF8 character, I suggested Ellone, since her personality reminded me of her. She immediately agreed, and I set about getting the outfit together.
This was a really simple costume to do, since all the peices were basically "found" clothing. The shirt, which is absolutely a perfect match for Ellone's, I found on eBay for $8. The skirt I found for $10; it was the accurate color, material, and style. All I needed to do was shorten it to the 3/4 length. Finally, the green scarf I owned, and I recycled the wig from my Julia Heartilly costume.
