Rydia of the Mist IV by Dessi-Desu Rydia of the Mist IV 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

I just realized I don't have images showcasing my footwear on this costume. This costume was my first experience with bootslip covers. Considering that it was my first time making them and I used a non-stretchy fabric, I'm pretty happy with how they turned out ^^

Daily Deviation

Given 2011-03-19
"The artist's artwork catched my eye at first glance, and this cosplay's a wonderful example as to why! Rydia is a character with a beautiful costume, which was in my opinion gorgeously represented here, with all those details and this dreamy atmosphere, so characteristic of the game..." Rydia of the Mist IV by ~Dessi-Desu ( Suggested by Gwendolyn12 and Featured by KubusRubus )

Absolutely gorgeous!! How did you make the leggings/boots? I can never figure these out for any of the costumes I do. :/

Ack! This is a bit late, but thank you! The leggings and bootslip covers are seperate. There are several bootslip cover tutorials online. This one by Firelily is very helpful [link] The leggings are made out of stretch fabric, so they were a bit more forgiving. I just took a couple measurements of my leg and made a pattern from that. Good luck!

It's a great costume of an excellent character (love that game); it's really just too bad it couldn't have been worn on a model that understands the concept of facial expressions.
Same face. Same face. Same face. Same face.

I hate to say this but cosplayers DON'T equate professional models. I made the costume, so I'm the one wearing it because I was the one that poured all the effort into it. I can't create magic and be mind blowing at everything straight from the start. I haven't been cosplaying for very long either. Maybe I'll do better next time, but for now you may want to read in the description if someone requested a critique or not. I go through my batches of pictures, after shoots. I'm well aware of my shortcomings. Many cosplayers start off unsure of themselves in front of the camera, including long time veterans.
