Final Fantasy XIII Cosplay: Oerba Dia Vanille (Kotori) Cosplay 20 JUN 2010

Surely one of the cutest game narrators you have ever encountered in a game, today’s Cosplay Sundae entry takes a peek at the FFXIII girl that everyone seems love, Vanille!

Ssh, don't tell anyone, but my back really hurts from holding this pose for so long!

Final Fantasy XIII is of course the thirteenth installment of the hugely popular Final Fantasy games series, and as was expected, it was pretty much a runaway hit. The game (as have almost all its predecessors) introduced some great new characters for the fan’s to play around with and today it is the turn of Oerba Dia Vanille.

Vanille if you’ve played the game, is a mysterious but upbeat young girl who wears her red-brown hair in pigtails for some or other reason. Coming from the Oerba Village situated on Gran Pulse, Vanille was among those who were exiled from Cocoon and who was subsequently rescued by Team Nora. Stubborn but with a loveable childlike innocence, Vanille is also extremely compassionate.

Her weapon of choice is a foldable fishing rod with multiple lines that can be reeled and used to attack enemies with. Needless to say, that is also exactly why she rather prefers to keep a safe distance and attack from afar with magic based strikes instead!

Her Eidolon is Hecatoncheir which is a multiple-limbed Earth Elemental summon, who has the ability to transform into a pilotable bipedal mech armed with machine guns.

I don’t recognise our Japanese cutie who goes by the handle of Kotori and who has taken it upon herself to cosplay Vanille in this particular shoot, but as you can see there has been a fair bit of effort put into getting the costume and the detail right, as well as just pulling off the character herself.

A great job and excellent example of cosplay done right, wouldn’t you say? :)

Oops, almost forgot to smile for the camera!
