Cosplay: Tifa KH2 by Risachantag Cosplay: Tifa KH2 by Risachantag
Photography by ...and there are more awesome photos of me and Cathy yet to come!

For comparison, Tifa's official character art picture can be found here: [link]

I made this outfit for Wai-con 2006, where my group won first prize for the best skit! ^_^

A lot of work went into this, though probably the hardest bit was the pleated half skirt. I used black vinyl for most of the costume, and unfortunately it was impossible to iron, as the plastic would melt! ...so the pleats were all made by making a line of hot glue between the two sheets of vinyl then folding it into shape as the glue set.

There are still a few things I'd like to fix up, though. I found some better buttons shortly after and con, and I'd still like to do some more styling on the wig.

Why no ribbon? Because this is the Kingdom Hearts 2 version of the costume; Aeris is alive, therefore, no ribbons. =)

Time: Two months, on and off, though much of the time was spent looking for material.
Materials: Black vinyl/pleather, white nylon (?)

I'm probably going to be repeating some people, but this is just an amazing job!
I plan as cosplaying as Tifa for this year's AKon but having difficulty with it. I have the shoes and ribbon, but the outfit itself is being a pain. Do you have a pattern or tips on how you did this, or even do commissions? It's the best Tifa cosplay I've seen :)

This is definitely one of the best Tifa AC/KH2 costumes ever made, and you make a good Tifa to boot!

The reason for the lack of a pink ribbon was because I was cosplaying the Kingdom Hearts 2 version of Tifa, along with an Aeris and Yuffie (as Aeris wasn't dead, there was no pink ribbon). Good luck with your version!
