Rinoa Heartilly 1.0

Final Fantasy VIII

Last Updated: 02-07-2012

--This version now retired! New version almost complete!--

This was my first cosplay ever. Had some help from my roommate, because I had never sewn anything in my life before, but it was still quite a challenge. I thought it would be easy when I first picked it...boy was I wrong lol.
We had no patterns to go off of, but in the long run it turned out pretty well!
My only dislike about it is that it's slightly too dark compared to Rinoa's color in the cutscenes...however, if you look at her in-game sprite, it's the exact same color. So we can say that I am that version :)
Took the better portion of 3 days to make this, as we really had no idea what we were doing lol. So maybe like 20-25 hours.
Shirt was bought at Old Navy; Shorts at a sports store, we attached the zippers ourselves; shoes at payless; the duster/skirt I made from fabric bought at JoAnn Fabrics; and the necklace I fashioned from random crap I bought at Claire's. When I went to ACen 2010 they were selling Griever rings so I was able to add that to my necklace :)
