Full shot of old Rydia costume

Full shot of old Rydia costume - Final Fantasy IV - Rydia
Just for posterity, I upload this. ^_^

This is the first costume I ever cosplayed in. It was made for ACen 2003 by myself and limebarb. Barb roped me into cosplay by promising to help me with this costume, because it's the only character I've ever felt strongly about. ^_^ I hadn't seen a Rydia cosplayer at all when I began this costume, but I'm so happy that now there's so many because she rocks hardcore!!! (The only other cosplayer I'd seen do an Amano costume at that time was Duncan's Locke, and I was heavily inspired by his awesomeness.)
I didn't finish the leggings in time for ACen, and I was too lazy after that to ever add them. ;_; That's about the only thing I dislike about it. This year, when Barb wanted to do an Amano costume (Rosa - to go along with my Rydia), we decided to completely redo mine to be more accurate to the original.

I still love your old rydia costume to death. I love both of your Rydias~ They are so different, you can't compare~ <3 (Plus I like the more natural make-up with this one)

This costume looks good, but isn't it remarkable how far you have come?!

Rydia! <3 I think I have a picture of you wearing this at Acen 04. Brings back memories it does!

I just wanted to say... You two have totally inspired me to put together a Terra for Ohayocon. ROFLMAO. I wanted to do something else, but I think I might do Terra anyway. Not one with easter grass for the wig either!
