I'm a super big Final Fantasy nerd (and I know I'm not the only one here), so seeings something like this come together was really awesome! You can clearly get the vibe of both Cloud and Rikku, and...to put it bluntly, Deanna looks hot! (Yes, Dea, you look hot). I think the most impressive part of this is definitely the sword. Yep. For sure.
Traditional X-2 Rikku
Rikku is definitely a popular cosplay in the convention world (especially for....well, hot girls) so I think some people kind of look down on it sometimes, but not everyone can pull off the right attitude for Rikku. Dea definitely gets it! Rikku is someone who will really fight for everyone she loves while still following what she believes in, and Dea is most definitely the same....so it's pretty appropriate that she did this cosplay!!!
I'm just including this picture because it's cool. SO COOL.
Laura (the girl on the right!) is doing a Lightning/Cloud crossover from one of his outfits from Kingdom Hearts!
There's so many cool, creative Final Fantasy characters our there, plus hundreds of crossovers like Dea's Cloud/Rikku that I'm tempted to try....the real problem is choosing which one to do first.
I'm still leaning towards Selphie, but Tifa and a few other characters have always been my favorites, so I'm not sure where to start!!!
