Red XIII or Nanaki has been one of my favorite characters from the hit game Final Fantasy 7 since I played it mid- 1997. I was excited to do this character, and also lend my Zack outfit to a fellow friend.
I am asking for crit because I don't feel like this costume lived up to its potential. A lot of it was inspired by the imagery below, and I could have put more brain work into a more original design in that case. I attempted to take liberties to make it different, but I feel like I barely pulled through, the entire costume felt like it was a disappointment by the end of the time wearing it. I won't be re-wearing it, and since I feel this way about it- I don't think i'll ever attempt to make something to make up for it. Since I feel this way, in the future I am going to try to make up for this lack of ingenuity by creating original character designs based off a few of the characters I love from series that...well no one knows about. Hopefully by then I can pull out a few designs that are worthy of notice. I just feel like i need a Prozac when I reflect on this particular costume. LOL. That whole month was a terrible time in my life, and I was struggling with doing anything with my hands, since it was the beginning of my injury.
I'm really happy that time in my life is over.
Took the pictures.
