*Shiva* as Shiva


Final Fantasy X

Cosplayer: *Shiva*
Final Fantasy X's incarnation of Shiva is an iconic, challenging design. For the game's 10th anniversary in 2012 I finally felt my costuming skills were up to the challenge of recreating this version. After a brief debut in 2012 in which the wig caused excruciating pain, I struggled for several years with how to support the wig properly. After a failed reconstruction attempt in 2015, my third try in 2016 was a success and this costume is finally enjoyable to wear.
