Rinoa Heartilly - Final Fantasy 8 by FireLilyCosplay Rinoa Heartilly - Final Fantasy 8 by FireLilyCosplay
Costume made and modeled by me
Photographer: :iconmindfall:

I was always a Quistis fan when playing Final Fantasy 8. Rinoa just wasn't my type; however she was one of my staple fighters and I respected her for that. I happened upon a wig that I got for a different costume and it was the perfect wig for Rinoa, so I decided to make her outfit, considering how easy it was. The duster fabric was originally cream, which I dyed to light aqua/turquoise. Bicycle shorts were made from Dri-Tek Performance spandex and the zippers installed. Skirt is blue cotton with custom-painted light blue contrast. The wings are made from 3/8" copper tubing, chicken wire, batting, and felt for the feathers (and I will be making a tutorial for these). Boots, wig, and shirt are pre-owned.

I actually found a super nice Squall while wearing Rinoa at Katsucon 2013 and I really hope he finds the pictures of us from :iconm-squaredphotography: - his name is Mike!

This is actually really well done. The outfit matches greatly, her make-up is practically perfect just like her hair. Although I don't see the wings that are mentioned in the comments though..

I absolutely love how you made this costume. The mottled details on the skirt are perfect, the material for the duster is /exactly/ like Rinoa's, and the wig is spot-on. Awesome job girl! :D

Thank you!! I wasn't really sure how to go about making the light blue splotches, but I eventually grabbed some paper towels and some paint and just scrubbed it up. Came out pretty nice!

Somewhere in the time I come home from work and finally fall asleep. More often I put in a full 8 hours (or more) of costume work after an 8.5 hour day of real work, then find some time to sleep in there :D And I still manage to see my friends on weekends and watch shows I like and do fun things here and there!

Will always be my favorite FF girl. Excellent cosplay, from material selection right down to the streaks in the hair. 10/10

I never really got it why he used to be so cold towards Quistis, it was clear that she was totally into him.

I was not a fan of FF8, but the design for Rinoa was always well done in my opinion. You do Rinoa justice, A beautiful woman cosplaying a beautiful character. Just perfect! <3
