The Official FFIX Cosplay Thread

I did a search and didn't see one for this game. I went to Fanime as Zidane (a kind of n00b version). Unfortunately, I didn't see any other FF9 cosplayers while I was there. This game seems to be ignored and underrated compared to FF 7,8, and 10.

To start off with, I'm going to completely remake my Zidane costume from scratch. On the one I wore to Fanime, the vest and cuffs were premade. For next time, I think I can make many improvements.

Zidane is a great character, and yeah, FF9 cosplay is rare compared to the other PSX generation FFs, but I think it has become more popular in recent years than it was when it first came out.

I've done Ruby: http://www.cosplay.com/gallery/39877/

And organized FF9 shoots with some awesome cosplayers: http://www.cosplay.com/gallery/42223/

I've done the orange jumpsuit version of Garnet and the dress but I'm currently reworking parts of it. I agree...it really doesn't get much love

I agree. Because it's not a Nomura FF, the following for this game will be less mainstream.

For Zidane, I remember Michi mentioning something a year ago about the pants being wide thigh, narrow calf. Is it easy to find a pattern for this? Also, has anyone had any luck making the belt look like the one in the character illustration?

Me as Quina

Close up

It's fun getting recognized, and I got a lot of hugs...but I tell you, that costume is a bear to put on. And all the cons I go to are in hot weather, so I sweat like crazy. But that's more than you wanted to know. I guess being a swampdwelling tonguebeast isn't all it's cracked up to be.

There use to be a FFIX thread but it dies sometimes. I remember already hearing about FFX just as FFIX came out and the whole idea of PS2 quality completely overshadowed whatever hype IX had. I think it was just bad timing on Square's part.

I'm yet another FFIX fan coming out of the wood work. I already have 1 (soon to be 2) versions of Zidane and a Freya.

FFIX cosplay is indeed on the rare side mostly because it's one of the most under rated FFs ever. FFIX is a great game. I haven't cosplayed from it, but I've always wanted to cosplay Garnet/Dagger. She's always been my favorite character.

Eventually, I'm gonna end up doing Amano Brahne with six (yes six) layers. That will be the day I collapse of heatstroke.

Regular Brahne was a pain and that was three!

IX is my favorite Final Fantasy. I've been Zidane and Kuja, but I fully intend to make a new Kuja costume that I've been planning for years. I want to combine design elements from the game, Amano artwork, Dissidia, and my own ideas to make something really nice. Kuja is my favorite character from the series so I want to really do him justice, and the costume I commissioned back in 2001 won't cut it anymore!

I have some friends planning to do IX cosplay as well, so I hope it turns out. It'd be nice to see some of the even lesser seen characters too. I've been planning one for a long time, but it's so random that I haven't had time to really pick a con for it.

Yep. This is very true. Also, the departure from the sci-fi settings of 7 & 8 and strange humanoid character designs turned some people off from the game.

Nice to see some life in this thread

This weekend, I'm going to start my version 2 of Zidane Tribal so I can get as much done in the next two months before I head out to my study abroad program.
