Amano Tifa: Dark Forest

Amano Tifa: Dark Forest - Dissidia 012 Duodecim - Tifa Lockhart
I cannot thank photographer Tiffany Ho:
enough for this image. She was able to capture everything I had hoped for with this costume.

Special thanks to Okageo:
for his direction during the photoshoot.

This is my Final Fantasy Dissidia Duodecim Amano Tifa cosplay. During the shoot, I was trying to capture an Amano-esque dreamlike and ethereal expression. I was also, of course, trying to put myself in the mindset of Tifa contemplating her relationship. with Cloud. Additionally, the location had patches of foliage surrounded by a lot of dead trees. As this photo was being taken, I was thinking that the living foliage represented Aerith reviving the area.

Nearly everything was constructed by me. My friend Rebecca Davis assisted with the pleather stitching and glove bases because a special machine needed to be used to stitch pleather over craftfoam to achieve the volume I was hoping for. I did the detailing with pleather, swarovski crystals, and puff paint. The armor was constructed by me out of craft foam, metal washers, epoxy resin, and spray chrome.

Great photo, I love the material used, it looks really accurate!

Thank you! I was really striving for accuracy. I made two other skirts before this one...I couldn't find the perfect material. I had to go up to the L.A. fashion district. Fortunately, my friend saw this fabric and I fell in love with it!
