Jr. aka Rubedo
Xenosaga Episode I
Well, I've absolutely loved Jr. ever since his opening line in Xenosaga Episode 1. I can still remember it even though I haven't played the game in years. xD YEAAARS, I SAY!! (I bought the game when it first came out).
"It was very dark...and the wind howled horribly around her. She felt as if she were being rocked gently, like a baby in a cradle." LOL yeaaaaa....I think he was quoting Moby Dick, if memory serves...
ANYWAY, I love Jr. so much!! If he hadn't appeared after that annoying-ass battle on-board the Elsa, I'm pretty sure I wouldn't have beaten the 1st game...lol >.>; I was getting SO friggin' upset 'cause I got stuck on that stupid fight. But Jr.'s character had me glued to the game and I fell in love with the franchise. <3
I love him so much that it was SO hard for me to choose which of his designs to cosplay...
I REALLY love his trench coat, so that was a huge factor in my decision to go with episode 1's design, but his coat in the second episode is super cute too. ><;
And his jacket from Episode III is just plain epic...
Who knows? I may end up making the others too someday if I feel so bold. But until then, I think I'll just focus on his first outfit and try to really put my love of this character into it so that it shows. :3 'cause he really left an impact on me.
Oh, and also, I don't think I'll be going with the game's bright-ass colors..lol I'll have to look up some reference...but I'm thinking of a more faded-green look for his pants rather than bright green on bright orange. x.x; The design on the back of the trench coat, I'm thinking crimson and gold, white and black (obviously). And I'm thinking of a bloody strawberry type wig. I don't even know if that type exists LOL but something that looks almost pinkish-red in the sun, but is a deep red in the dark. ;)
Eeeeeeee!! I'm excited about this costume now! xD
There are no photos in this costume yet.
