Cosplayer Shiya Wind > Costume of Rinoa Heartilly from Final Fantasy VIII
About this Costume
- Construction Details:
- All of my materials were bought in Fashion District/downtown LA, and I happened to find the ribbed fabric I wanted, but in an off-white color. ;; Actually, I have been to a lot of stores to look for the color, but I'm always pressed for time...so I figured I'd just dye it whenever I do find time. I used royal blue tulip dye, and that dyed too light. Then, I used royal blue RIT dye and squeezed out some of the color before completely drying, and it came out just right for me. The wings are painted on with two coats. No patterns were used, just draping. The boot covers and belt were sewn by hand because my machine wasn't liking the material. ;; The wig was a poofy med length wig that I styled and straightened with a flat iron. That's about it. :>
- Personal Thoughts:
- This costume was really easy for me! :> I like this version a lot more than Rinoa's default one. It was very comfortable to wear!
