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

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.
