Cosplay: Tifa by Risachantag Cosplay: Tifa by Risachantag
^^ Yay! It's me in my Tifa costume! After Swancon and Wai-con I ended up with a few good photos. I'll put up some of my best friend and sister's costumes soon too!

Here's the official character art for comparison: [link]

This is certainly the most difficult costume I've made so far. The gloves were the hardest bit... closely followed by the elbow guard (I love how it came out though). And no, that's not my real hair! :XD: The braces are the one thing I didn't make myself, as I didn't have any leather working tools.

Materials:
Top & Arm warmers- lycra
Skirt - imitation leather
Gloves - Pleather (^^; The type normally used for table covers) & paint
Elbow Guard - Knee guard base, foam, craft foam, spray paint & model paint

Time: It was made over about two months. I'm not sure what the actual hours were, but needless to say a great many hours were put into this.

Haha, I get asked that a lot! They are second hand Doc Martins, found on eBay. They're not cheap, but there are some knock-off brands that look similar around.

Love it! I'm making a Tifa cosplay as well, and I just wanted to know where you got your braces from. ^^;
(Looks amazing!)

Back when I made this costume, I hadn't learnt to work with leather yet, so I commissioned a local leather maker to make the braces for me.
