About this Costume
Construction Details:
Rinoa, technically, is not in Kingdom Hearts. However, when Square held a competition for Kingdom Hearts character designs, CG artist Dion Rogers entered the contest with this version of Rinoa. . . and won. Thus began the legacy of the drawing which launched a thousand cosplays.
Personal Thoughts:
I, like many, adored the design - its fun, its fresh, its clearly Rinoa, and it matches Kingdom Hearts' Leon (Squall) so well. This year, I finally got the oppertunity to put this together.
