Final Fantasy VIII
DescriptionMy birthday is the day after Christmas, so I thought it'd be fun to dress as a Christmas version of Rinoa for the occasion. ^^
Wig: SOON TO BE REPLACED. The wig in the current photos is my slightly restyled Tifa wig. I'm getting a better one, soon. ^^;;
Halo: I made a circle from florist's wire, then wound a strip of cotton batting around it, securing it with fabric glue. I then glued feathers onto that base.
Hoodie: I bought the hoodie at a thrift store, then made alterations. I added the fur trim around the hood, and replaced the zipper pull with a silver feather.
Wings: I bought the clip-on plushie wings in the Artist's Alley of a convention. ^^ I never thought I'd wind up using them in cosplay, but they were perfect for the job. ^^
Necklace: I replaced the rings with jingle bells. ^^ I had the chain leftover from Lucrecia's jewelry.
Long-sleeved Shirt: From my closet. Velvet just seemed right. ^^;;
Skirt: Bought from a thrift store and altered. I opened it in front, replaced the buttons, and added the black ribbons. There are three silver buttons, just like Rinoa's in-game skirt, though not all of them show.
Leggings: The "leggings" are actually in two parts. xD I bought leggings on E-bay, but they were shear when they arrived... So, I put those on, then wore biker shorts over them. Thankfully, it doesn't show in my photos. =D I have normal ones, now. :)
Boots: From my closet.
Angelo: A stuffed dog I've had since I was a kid. ^^;; I removed the tail, sewed down the ears, and added a jingle-bell "collar".
