Whoops, I forgot to write that I have made 3rd Final Fantasy costume this year
The idea was to make simple and comfortable costume to travel, thus - no weapons, no wings, no hoopskirts and such. I always loved Tifa Lockheart, but her FFVII costume... yack. Hate it, really. Than in FFVII ACC there were another much more convinient costume. I loved it! But had no plans to make it.
This summer I decided to travel to Kaliningrad festival, and thus I decided to make Tifa's costiume. To have a deadline I also apply for cosplay party (Cosplay Rush 6).
I've had REALLY hard time looking for appropriate boots. She does have canvas boots BUT on proper white combat sole with heel. I don't get why does everybody just use convers and such, combat soles are much more convinient in battle. Anyway, second complication was the one with her "skirt" (apron and train, actually), 'cause it's made of Cordura (it can be clearly seen in the scene in the chirch when she's fighting with Loz and her 'skirt' seen all across the screen - it's CLEARLY not leather or anything - it's cordura or any other heavy-duty material).
So, my version of Tifa Lockheart Final Fantasy VII Advent Children outfit:
And YES, it's really comfortable to travel and fight
