Rydia of the Mist III by Dessi-Desu Rydia of the Mist III by Dessi-Desu
Character: Rydia of the Mist
Series: Final Fantasy IV
Photo taken by :iconthebigtog: at Katsucon 2011
Costume and make up: made and done by me

Oh, this costume... It's such a pain to put on, but it's still a pretty special costume. It's my first cosplay that I ever took seriously and poured a ton of work into. If I ever wear it again, I'm making some adjustments on it to make it easier to get ready, but I would like to eventually make Amano styled Rydia.

During past conventions, I wore a feather hairpiece that wasn't accurate to the artwork I was referencing. I leveled up a little bit with my cosplay abilities and casted the headpiece out of resin :3

Amazing cosplay! ^^ Have you find the cloth already painted? I would like to do Rydia and I wonder if I have to paint the cloth by my own =) thank you!

This is very, very impressive. I was recently at a con looking for a successful Rydia cosplay and found only ONE. But this blows THAT out of the water. Beautiful attention to detail. The wig is tasteful and not over the top...and the garment itself--WOW.

Excellent work--and as a fan of this character, I absolutely love it even more :)

I love your Rydia's cosplay ;_;. I saw it months ago, it's perfect. I mean, I think this is the only cosplay of Rydia that it isn't made to look like a bitch. (Yes, I think so, LOL ._.). I want to do this cosplay, but it's too difficult for me n-nU I hope that I can do it for the next year... ;A; (Sorry my bad english, but I'm from Spain xDDDDDDD Spanglish rlz :_D)

THANK YOU!! Someone finally got this costume right and didn't make it over-the-top with a huge wig. Looks phenomenal. Very elegant.

You are quite honestly the best Rydia cosplayer I've ever seen. She's one of my fav ladies in the series but a lot of cosplayers have no real idea what her outfit looks like, and as so often happens with cosplayers some of them just don't look the part. You not only got the outfit perfect but you look like her (very pretty I mean, not to be creepy). Not sure if the hair is dyed or a wig, but either way it looks great too.

Very good job.

These were my thoughts, as well.. Seen way too many costumes that just look ridiculous. Rydia was a very simple and understated character, which is what made her so beautiful. Hands down, my favorite female character in the series.

Awww, I was literally being stopped for photoshoots the whole entire time I was wearing this x_x; It was quite tiring. Two photoshoots I had scheduled for myself grew into like 5 or 6 XD; I wish I could have walked around the actual con in it more :<
