Trabia Garden. by cupcake-rufflebutt Trabia Garden. by cupcake-rufflebutt
Kate [sumredthings] as Selphie and myself as Rinoa. Photo taken by Junior Berry [Refractor Productions] at Otakon 2007. This weedy little box garden is one of my favourite photography locations at Otakon, since it is usually left well alone by the crowds and absolutely lovely for pictures. It reminds me a LOT of Trabia Garden, except... we look WAY too cheerful to be wandering through Selphie's destroyed home. ^__^; Both costumes were constructed by myself; we each styled our own wigs.

Please no critiques/criticism. I'd like to keep this gallery happy! <3

Aw, that's very sweet. I have no idea how I ended up with a Rinoa face (out of all the characters I've done, she was definitely one that I never anticipated looking like), but somehow genetics worked in my favour. XD

I'm sorry, but I had to say it xD With only just slight exception to your face being a bit wider and your wig having a bit more volume, you could MOST DEFINITELY pass for Rinny. I love that costume, I wish I could have it xD

I do have to disagree about the wig, as Rinoa's hair is extremely full in the Nomura art. One of the things I was particularly picky about was finding a wig with enough body and buoyancy. Flat and too-straight Rinoa wigs make my heart cry a little. And I can't rightly make my face more thin, so I find it a little unfair that you would critique that. But thank you for the comment, nonetheless!

I haven't seen any of the original art for VIII, so I dunno what any of them look like like that.

And I really am sorry about critiquing your face, but it was the ONLY thing that, to me, was short of being fully, entirely Rinny. I felt bad thinking it, but I pointed it out anyway. =\ Sorry.

You know, I've never seen a person who'll be SO similar to SO many characters... My sincere compliments. ^______^

Hearing that makes me so happy! I always try so hard to resemble the characters, right down to the shape of their eyebrows.

And you're very successful in that (just like you look and see an alive FF or anime character) ^____^

It's seen that you put your heart to your works and this makes them so great. No, really ^_~ You're my favourite cosplayer at the moment. One more time - incredible! ^.^

It's right in front of a major hotel, too. People just don't poke around as much as I do, I guess. XD Thanks for the comment!

Looks very much like architecture one would find in Gardens/Trabia, great find for photos always seem to be the places the crowds don't frequent :D

Lovely Rinoa to boot!
