Why this character ? : Rinoa is my favorite character, she's spirited and strong. I have such a passion for cosplaying Rinoa ♥
^_^ She's the reflection of myself and my life now I love her so much *_*
Costume details :
BLUE RIB KNIT: found at home and dyed in the right color.
BLACK SHORTS: black zippers with silver metal teeth for the zippers, and sewed them into the shorts. But they have no function. XD
BLUE PATTERENED FABRIC: for cheap from Mondial Tissus. Fits my bottom perfectly, and the silver buttons are functional.
THE DUSTER: was patterned after my pattern. I had just enough ribbed fabric to make the duster and the armwarmers. I studied screenshots of the outfit many many hours figuring out the patterns and right sizes and stuff. =P
THE HAIR: it's my true hair well styled, not a wig ^^
TANK TOP: from Cora. Last remake the 02/08/09 now it's perfect because it's sweet heart scoop neck top.
NECKLACE: from eBay, resize with a new necklace but same rings.
BOOTS: from Gemo. Buckles done with silver belt buckles, and black elastic.
WINGS: paper, PVC pipes, scotch, hot glue
GUNBLADE "Vanishing Star": base : wood / deco 3D : plastiroc / colors : white acrylic peint and black bomb.
Note : Remake of my Dead Fantasy (Ver. 1) Costume little remade, new gunblade and... GIANTS WINGS !!! ♥
Original game: Final Fantasy VIII
Combat style: Sorceress
Weapon: Vanishing Star & Silenced Tear
The genesis of Rinoa Heartilly, Sorceress of Time, can be found in these words. Rinoa again takes up arms to fight with his own GUNBLADE called Vanishing Star and a boomerang propelled by a crossbow attached to his arm improved Silenced Tear.
As a witch, she has an infinite capacity and devastating magic beyond even her control.
