I am a long time Final Fantasy fan. And in all FF series my absolute favourite character is Oerba Yun Fang. I really love her; she's strong, independent, reliable and beautiful woman, who always protect her friends and literally will tear down the skies to save loved one. And she's kinda badass
So I wanted to cosplay her as soon as I've seen her in FFXIII (her first appearance on screen is just WOW. As is her reunion with Vanille
). It helped that my friend Luckydakk planned to make Vanille, so I think that was Destiny in motion here
I re-made the costume twice, for 1st time I realy had no time to finish it. There are a high level of detalisation in FFXIII costumes, and there are also problems with fabric and materials selection thanks to renders which show the texture of all the details. I re-made my Bladed Lance twice, also.
Most of the problems were with saree border, which I was forced to make from scratch in photoshop (not 1 version of saree border ornament in web is correct, imho) and then order fabric print. Also, her sandals were a pain, as was Bladed Lance. But I managed to finish it and I am SO happy I have a costume of my favourite character ever! Even more happy that I have my Vanille and our photos together
So I'll be posting photos from our photoshoot of FF girls, my Fang and luckydakk's Vanille
