About this Costume
Construction Details:
The duster, wig styling, arm-warmers, and boot straps were made by me. The shorts, skirt (altered by me), and tank-top were made/from another cosplayer- Crystal Likes.

At first glance, this might look like a very easy costume but the duster was actually pretty difficult for me. Finding the right rib-knit fabric was a long process. I found it in a cream color and it took me 5 dye trials (a week) to get it close enough. I had blue hands by the end of it.
Personal Thoughts:
This is actually my second go at a Rinoa cosplay. I made my first one in high school for Halloween but it was terrible and did not do her justice. Final Fantasy VIII is my favorite game, so I'm really hoping I got it right this second time around.
