Feathers on my Breath. by cupcake-rufflebutt Feathers on my Breath. by cupcake-rufflebutt
Character: Terra Branford from Final Fantasy VI
Seamstress/Model: Tess [cupcake-rufflebutt]
Photography/Editing: Jack Liu [alucardleashed]
Location: Otakon 2011

Construction Notes:
I decided to bring my original Terra costume to Otakon on a whim, not having worn her in about three years. Long story short, I am so glad I brought her out -- otherwise I'd have never been able to collaborate with Jack on these photos, all of which are incredible! It is so wonderful to work with a photographer who knows the character and, despite the fact that we were both sweltering in 100+ degree heat on a rooftop in the middle of Baltimore, was somehow able to capture a shard of Terra's personality. I am hopeful we will get to work together again!

Thank you! I'm really hoping to do at least one west coast convention next year. I have a lot of friends out that way that I haven't seen in ages.

I've been to San Diego and that's about it. I've generally stayed in the Southwest. Never been to a convention of any kind, I'm sad to say :(

Can I please use this picture in a video of Terra that I'm putting together? It'll be a compilation of clips and images set to an orchestral remix of her theme. I will ink to you and credit you if you say yes. What do you say?

They're just fake eyelashes, LOL. You can buy them with rhinestones along the lash line.

I've said it before and I'll say it again:
You are the best Terra I have ever seen and I think the best that has ever been done and ever will be done. ;) (Or at least I THINK I've said that XD)
Your costume is flawless down to every detail on the dress, shoes, gloves, nylons and even the hair and make-up. And you capture the very look and feel of the character in all your photos.
AS far as I'm concern (even though that probably doesn't mean anything XP) you ARE Terra come to life. :clap: :heart:

Oh my goodness, thank you so very much. I do feel like, no matter how many version of Terra I cosplay (and I have quite a few planned), I'll always be chasing the ghost of this first costume. It's inspiring to see it so well-loved, but frustrating at the same time. n___n;

BnGJessie Featured By Owner Mar 23, 2012

It's not just to costume mind you, (though it was perfectly done ;)) but it's also the make-up, the hair, your expressions and simply the overall look and feel I get when I see the pics of your cosplay. I think every version you do for Terra will be just as good. ;)
