Cosplayer Celeste Orchid > Costume of Rinoa Heartilly from Final Fantasy VIII
About this Costume
- Construction Details:
- The top blue part is hand knitted, I cut out the wings on some white fabric and sewed them on the back and used piping paint to outline it.
The arm warmer is knitted and added black ribbon and lace.
The shorts were sewn with the jean flaps and the wings are on both sides. I used piping paint to make the wings stand out more.
Shoes were bought exclusively for this project. At Sugoicon 07 I relaced my boots with white ribbon.
For anime expo 2011, I added two new belts and a lace glove for a different effect. I alwso used a new pair of boots I owned and of course new angel wings
- Personal Thoughts:
- I've got actually sorta two different verisons of this costume... like version 1 with gold laces and boot covers with no double sided wings, and then version 2 actual boots with double sided wings.
This costume was extremely time CONSUMING due to the fact that I took a while to get the boots and knitting the top.
