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!

Final Fantasy XIII Cosplay: Lightning (Yuzu Inumachi) Cosplay 23 MAY 2010

Probably the most important protagonist to step out of the Final Fantasy game world since Cloud, today Cosplay Sundae gives you: Lightning (without the thunder of course)!

Don't ask me about the hands. I don't know what I'm meant to be doing with them!

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 Lightning, formerly known as Eclaire (or Claire if you’ve got the American release) Farron.

In an attempt to emotionally reinforce herself and step away from her tragedy after the death of her parents, Lightning cast aside her birth name and went on to become a sergeant of the Guardian Corps. Originally seeking out the Pulse fal’Cie Anima in order to try and save her sister Serah whom the fal’Cie had turned into a l’Cie, things became a little more complicated when the fal’Cie went ahead and transformed Lightning into a l’Cie herself, with the power to summon the Eidolon Odin!

A very independent and determined woman, Lightning does sometimes give off a hint of a compassionate side, though it is difficult to see through the smoke given off by her awesome gunblade known as Blaze Edge – basically the combination of a gun and a sword, the one collapsing over the other, and the gravity control she’s gifted by the device worn on her thumb.

Agile and acrobatic in combat, Lightning is certainly not an opponent you would wish to come face to face with!

The star of today’s Cosplay Sundae entry is a cosplayer going by the name of Yuzu Inumachi and as you can see, this Japanese girl has gone and got it right, pulling off a great looking costume complete with gunblade and the attitude to match!

Nice! :)

Alright, that's more like it. Don't mess with me security type people!

Final Fantasy XIII Cosplay: Hope Estheim (Sakazaki Yuuko) Cosplay 25 APR 2010

Okay fine, it’s a girl masquerading around like a boy for today’s Cosplay Sundae, but she pulls off the role so well that you really wouldn’t care, now would you?

Damn, I hope I remember where I parked the car...

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 Hope Estheim.

Hope is a fourteen-year-old boy with a penchant for using collapsible boomerangs in battle. His mother was killed during the Purge in the battle against PSICOM and as a result this young boy harbors an intense grief-induced rage. Of course, this isn’t all that great a thing when you take into account that his Eidolon is the holy-elemental summon Alexander – a huge transforming fortress in Gestalt Mode that is able to blast anyone and anything from afar with its multiple cannons!

Sakazaki Yuuko is her name and this Japanese cosplay lady has put together a great costume here that captures the detail and fairly Western look of the character pretty damn well. There isn’t really all that much else to say, other than great job boy – or should that be girl? ;)

Cosplaying must be hard work. Time for a sit down to rest up then!
