|Im taking a trip through time and replaying all the old Final Fantasy games. During my playthrough of FF2 I
really fell head over heels for this Scallywag Lady! I love Reilas character design and her attitude. To make
things better I needed a good summer cosplay for these intense Tokyo weather changes so I knew I wanted
to do this for the summer season. It would save me from dying from heat exhaustion.
Some of the costume is store bought and some hand made. If I had to give it a ration it would be almost
50/50. The bra and hipscarf I found online through a bellydance shop but the rest I had to come up with on
For the Turban, I bought a sunhat at the local dollar store and cut the brim off so I could have the dome
mesh as a mold. I sewed wefts of fabric right onto the sunhat top! The legs and arms were pretty straight
forward, having sewn basically square panels into tubes and then fitting them with white ribbon. The paldron
is once again air dry clay and decorated with swarski rhinestones. Belt and holder for the accessories were
hand tooled leather by yours truly.
I am so happy with this costume and how it turned out! Its so easy and works great for the summer!
