Final Fantasy X
Last Updated: 07-17-2012
Somehow I managed to be part of little Final fantasy X group as Rikku, with Silkmonkey and Sir Hiki as Lulu and Auron. :3 I actually was wondering, should I be Yuna instead, but her original summoner outfit is soooo overcosplayed. And Yuna is pretty boring character, I think. :p And maybe I also wanted to remind people, that Rikku has also this better Final fantasy X outfit, which is not so slutty... Gosh, I really hate her clothes in FF X-2... xP
Well, I started my project by making her shoes first. Shoes are almost always that part on cosplay, which will break first, so I had to buy very strong, but also pretty cheap boots. And after searching my time in second hand store, I found these great riding boots for 6 euros. I just had to paint them with creme white and brown, and make those pearl and feather ornaments. :3
This was my first time ever, I made pants, but I think, that they turned out nicely. Her top was pretty difficult, īcause I couldnīt find perfect fabric anywhere, so I had to order it from Germany xD But it didnīt cost so much after all, so it was alright. I didnīt have my sewing machine with me for a few weeks, but my cosplay fever was really high, so I took back my old way to make my costumes, before I started to make them with machine. My top has been sewed by hand. It took about 5 hours to finish, when I made it every now and then, but I wasnīt in rush or anything.... And I think it looks pretty nice. Those pearls are also sewed by hand. (quess there wouldnīt be any other way after all xD) I killed my old necklace, cause their size and color were already perfect and cīmon, pearls are pretty expensive to buy. As well as some buckles. Cīmon almost 5 euros/item. Bleh... xP
Her pack wasnīt that difficult, that I was afraid it would be... I bought a little leather pack from second hand store, and just made it look more like Rikkus.. (I sewed an extra zipper, cut some parts off.. etc...) Her belt is from second hand store too... It was ordinary black leather belt, which I painted orange. Then I cut a piece of yellow fabric, and sticked it on my belt. Those "buttons" are made of craftfoam. First time ever using that material, and it was pretty nice. :3 I also used them to those white big button like thing on my shoulders, which I sewed on those blue clothes. (I actually never notice them, so I thank ninnu-chan, īcause I picked them up from her Rikku cosplay xD)
