perfectly_purple - 16th December 2009
Awwww that's a cute design! Did you draw it yourself??? I can't draw for toffee! So jealous >.<

...I am tempted to do a Refia Christmas version now...

Zelda avatar

Zelda - 16th December 2009
We are looking for cosplayers to do final fantasy christmas versions for may 2010, not for the whole day obviously but sasashie plans to do a calendar. And obviously we are looking for other characters, you don't need to do anything major to the characters normal costume, a bit of tinsel here and there and maybe a christmas hat hehe, or make a complete costume like me that still resembles there normal costume hehe, so what do you think? Would you like to join hehe, where looking for one character for each ^__^ and i would love you to join.

perfectly_purple avatar

perfectly_purple - 16th December 2009
I do have a design in mind and I will be Refia anyway for the HUGE FF group that Sasahie is organising...I might put pencil to paper this week and then let you know!

Damn you tempting me when I have so many cosplays I want to do ;P

Zelda avatar

Zelda - 16th December 2009
Awesome hehe, well i will set up a topic for it soon, so i will hold the place of refia for you until you let me know hehe ^__^.

And cosplay ideas like this are just to cute how could it not temp you ^__^ and it will look so pretty to.

May post a phew pictures of my wig tommorow i have treated tinsel though her hair to so her long twirl has little bits of tinsel shining.

Shiro Hana avatar

Shiro Hana - 16th December 2009

Shiro Hana avatar

Shiro Hana - 17th December 2009
Ok, ok - I've put it up provisionally ^^ but I haven't added an avatar for it yet but won't be able to add to it till next week (sorry for the wait) :(.
I guess you could add me if you wanted updates on it: I just don't want to costume spam the board.

Why am I more excited about doing this variation? xD

Christmas in May? Are we mad? XD - no!

Zelda avatar

Zelda - 17th December 2009
Oh sweet your going to do yuna hehe sounds amazing, may i ask do you plan to base the costume on a dressphere? If so which one, ohhh i bet yours will look so pretty hehe ^__^.

Im going to buy some tinsel tommorow, some nice silver or white for a phew other places of the costume, but i can't tell you hehe you will have to see when i put some piccys up hehe ^__^

Shiro Hana avatar

Shiro Hana - 17th December 2009
Short answer: yes

Long answer:
Well, initially I did think of something like the Songstress as that can be easily altered. Then I thought, maybe a Festive Floral Fallal as I'm already hoping to make the original? I don't know, I think any of them could be easily christmas-ified.

Zelda avatar

Zelda - 17th December 2009
Ohhh sounds really good hehe, i can't wait to see and i bet it will look so so pretty =].

I will probably wrap up some boxes all pretty so we can all look like were holding gifts to =].

Sasashie avatar

Sasashie - 17th December 2009
