Cosplayer VintageAerith > Costume of Aeris / Aerith Gainsborough from Final Fantasy VII: Crisis Core
About this Costume
- Construction Details:
- FIRST COSTUME EVER and I realized I never uploaded it here. Copied and pasted from my Coscom entry made in August 2008:
This was my very first cosplay, and no, it was not handmade--this was before I knew how to sew. xD The dress is comprised of a tank top and a sundress, layered on top of one another. I hand-dyed the cording/pink backing for the neckline and the lace accents for the skirt, and my mom and grandmom handsewed them on, along with the flower appliques on the strap. My mom also sewed the bow after I drafted it, and I painted and altered the shoes.
I'd like to thank SakuraWigs for donating the wig and sponsoring me and my friend Kyle in our press coverage of 2008. Couldn't have done it without you!

- FIRST COSTUME EVER and I realized I never uploaded it here, so wha-bam. Copied and pasted from my Coscom entry made in August 2008:
"Wow. My first real cosplay. It was an incredible experience, to say the least. I really wanted to cosplay Aerith after I finished Crisis Core: FFVII. I'd always been attracted to her as a character, but never really had a real reason or motivation to like her all that much or to make her costume. She was so sweet in Crisis Core, I decided I had to go for it. I also ADORE the pairing of Zack x Aerith, and looked forward to creating a costume from the game where it originated."
