The Making of Tifa Lockhart Cosplay Costume

In my previous post I mentioned about I'm going to cosplay, no?
After some consideration, I've finally made up my mind to cos Tifa Lockhart. So I started to look for materials to make the costume and somehow I managed to finish it in 4 days. Special thanks to my beloved mom and sister who helped me alot during the process. The sewing skills may not be as good as real tailors out there (cos I was using an old sewing machine that doesn't really function well like how it used to be) but I've tried my best. :)

So this is it. My first try in cosplay costume making.



That's all for the process of costume-making...

Ready to see the final version?

Ta-da~^^v


forgot the shoes...
close-up...

So, what do you think?

It is not perfect but I am quite satisfied with the result. What I fear is not the quality of the costume but it's me who have no confidence in cosplaying Tifa due to my skinny figure. I thought of doing push-up every day to build some muscle and strength but I stopped after a few days cos it was very tiring. You can see how weak I am. Duh.

Anyway, I'm really excited to cosplay for my first time and I hope everything will go smoothly like I imagined. Hahaha :P
