Rikku (Final Fantasy 10/10-2 HD Remaster) – Cosplay of the Day
Rikku is one of the most famous figures in Final Fantasy’s storied history, and for good reason, too. Not only does she have a bubbly personality and killer looks, but she’s also an expert engineer! Add to the fact that she’s basically a cosplayer in Final Fantasy 10-2, then you’ve got all the makings of a great Cosplay of the Day.
In order to psych ourselves up for the release of Final Fantasy 10/10-2 HD Remaster, we’re featuring the young Al Bhed engineer in her trademark Thief outfit from Final Fantasy 10-2. Rikku flashed a lot more skin in this getup, but she’s still the same bright, bubbly girl we knew and loved. She can change into a whole slew of different suits thanks to the use of Dresspheres, making her one of the greatest cosplaying video game characters around.
Samantha, a cosplayer and artist from New York, nails Rikku’s Thief look, all the way down to the boots. As a Thief, you’d think that Rikku would wear simpler, more silent shoes that lend themselves to sneaking around, but a lot of Japanese role-playing games take certain liberties with clothing and accessories. Still, Samantha has to be commended for pulling off the costume, especially the hair! If we ever need to call a Gullwing, we’d dial her first!
See more of her amazing outfits, along with some of the cute jewelry she makes, here on her deviantART page.
