Oh My God!!! When I first saw this I thought that it was a pic taken from the game (I haven't beaten it yet) and after about thirty seconds I realized that it was actually you! You had me convinced that you really were Rinoa! Amazing!
Yeah, most people (at least where I am) thought that Final Fantasy VIII wasn't too good, but I really disagree with them. Have you watched Avatar: The Last Airbender? It's great and if you haven't watched it, then you totally should!
Awesome I can't see the details very well, but it does look like you did an amazing job with it I think that making the costume is much more than half the fun >< Did you ever get a shot of the back? (assuming you added the wings)
