Tifa Lockheart AC Cosplay by JialingPan Tifa Lockheart AC Cosplay by JialingPan
Yes its another one of those, it is not a drawing submission. I realized that quite a few people have been putting up collages of their cosplays on dA and I thought, hey why not?

This costume was not made by me. Mostly that is. I did the dissection, the explanation, the modifications but the sewing was done by my tailor Mrs Loh. I have no form of skill when it comes to sewing leather. But I did all the research and the material shopping and hopefully I got it as accurate as possible.

The pictures were taken by Fallen Seraphine.
Pictures were colour editted by me XD

I really love Tifa (I think a lot of you already guessed that) because of her attitude and all. I won't go into fangirly descriptions but I loved cosplaying as her and I love the location we took pictures of this costume at^^

BTW that is not a wig. That is my real hair. My current hair is actually longer seeing that I took pictures of this last year. XD (yeah I'm one of those girls who trim their own hair but don't actually cut it constantly).

Oh well. These collages will be like archives for me. I've got a lot of costumes but not many photoshoots of most of my costumes so I'll only be posting the ones I have photoshoots of^^ Expect to see more soon! And art too. Exploration week is next week. Time to get my butt to scanning half the stuff I've done >_>;

wow really nicely done! :D I'm looking to start a tifa cosplay of my own, but as of right now i'm stumped on what fabric to use ( was contemplating using vinyl but its the skirt that's throwing me off) would you mind terribly if i asked what material you used? :please:
JialingPan Featured By Owner Mar 13, 2009  Hobbyist General Artist
I would think matte thin leather would be the best material for Tifa since according to the book, that's where the animation team got the texture for it. I used think cotton canvas for her skirt like the one in her 3D model.

Thank you sooo much you helped me tremendously! I can't even begin to thank you enough. Your costume was beautifully done and beautifully presented as well. XD; and for the record you really do look like Tifa, one of the best I've seen on here. :D (most don't really try for the hair much at all :< ) anyway, thank you again I'll be sure to post pictures when I get mine done X3.

Awesome Costumes and shots. <3
Quor18 Featured By Owner Sep 21, 2007
You're probably the best Tifa I've seen. Extra props for the hair and material accuracy too; it adds that much more to it.

You pull of the Tifa look nicely... and i'm not gonna be on of those guys to comment just on body figures (like the immature beings they are). Lovin' the outfit, seems like your tailor has some great skills aswell.

Beautiful! Dun know you, but I think I see a little bit of her look in your eyes. You seem...fiercer, though. In a good way ^^ God bless.
DaimyoShi Featured By Owner Aug 19, 2007  Hobbyist General Artist
Very nice, you wear it well.
Treoth Featured By Owner Jun 29, 2007  Hobbyist General Artist
ya! nice tifa! i think the "fight" pose is most reminiscant of AC and the shot where your back is facing the viewer. great job on the outfit too! i agree w/ khknight awesome use of the chuck taylors!

Aurum-aquilA Featured By Owner Mar 29, 2007
this has to be one of the best Tifa cosplays I've seen, not many people look enough like the character their trying to play, but you fit the part perfectly. Where were the photos taken, the background looks similar to the movie scene.
JialingPan Featured By Owner Mar 29, 2007  Hobbyist General Artist
Its the side of a bank actually^^ Thanks for the lovely comment!
Aurum-aquilA Featured By Owner Mar 30, 2007
