As I work my way up the timeline of FF games I stumbled upon FF3 and really thought the red mage characters were adorable. I wanted to try my own version of this type of character so I redesigned it to my liking. I kept the color scheme of the original costume. The pants and corset were store bought and then I added my own embroidery patches to it. The hat is made from a sheet plastic base that had red satin overlayed and glued on it. It was not so hard to make but somehow I love wearing this and feel like its going to be in my cosplay closet for the years to come. Its so stylish yet iconic!
