Final Fantasy XII Cosplay: Fran (LittleBlondeGoth) Cosplay 07 JUN 2014

UK cosplayer Angel Martin, better known by her cosplay alias of LittleBlondeGoth, pulls out all the stops by grabbing her bow, strapping up, and bringing to life Final Fantasy XII’s fierce Viera warrior Fran for this excellent cosplay entry.

Final Fantasy XII Cosplay Fran  by UK cosplayer angel martin aka littleblondegoth 1

Fran is a Viera warrior, mechanic to the Strahl, and Balthier’s copilot. Like all Viera, she is exceptionally sensitive to the magical Mist that permeates Ivalice, and is affected by it on three separate occasions: in the Tomb of Raithwall, when Judge Ghis heats the Dawn Shard in his airship’s engine, and when she is in the presence of the Sun-Cryst. When the party reaches Giruvegan, she can detect the Mist nearby has cooled and is less intense.

She also happens to be the oldest of all the Final Fantasy XII characters despite her youthful appearance, thanks to the longevity of the Viera people.

Fran once lived with her sisters Jote and Mjrn in Eruyt Village, the secluded Viera settlement in Golmore Jungle, but became restless and desired to see the outside world. This was a major source of conflict between her and the other viera, especially her elder sister Jote, who served as the village matriarch. Fran argued that although all Viera begin their lives in the forest, they are not necessarily bound to remain there to the end. When the party encounters an impassable Viera barrier on the path through Golmore, Fran is forced to return to the village and ask for help. She learns from Jote that their youngest sister Mjrn has run off to the nearby magicite mines. When Fran finds her and brings her back, Mjrn reveals she wishes to leave Golmore, but Fran advises her against doing so, relating how her own independence has cost her her family and the ability to commune with the Wood.

Fran accepts that she is now part of the Hume world, and asks for a confirmation from Jote that the Wood accepts her before she leaves. In Revenant Wings, Balthier and Fran are searching for the Cache of Glabados.

Fran was voiced by Nicole Fantl in English and by Rika Fukami in Japanese. She also appears in Itadaki Street Portable.

Final Fantasy VII Cosplay Tifa Lockhart by american cosplayer Bunny Ayumi 1

Tifa Lockhart is a player character in Square Enix’s role-playing video game Final Fantasy VII. Created by character designer Tetsuya Nomura, she has since appeared in the fighting game Ehrgeiz and cameo appearances in other titles, as well as the CGI film sequel to Final Fantasy VII, Advent Children and related games and media as part of the Compilation of Final Fantasy VII series. As of Advent Children, Tifa is voiced by Ayumi Ito in Japanese, and by Rachael Leigh Cook in English.

A member of the terrorist group AVALANCHE and owner of the 7th Heaven bar, Tifa is the childhood friend of Cloud Strife, the protagonist of Final Fantasy VII. Convincing him to join the group to keep him close and safe, she later assists him in saving the planet from the game’s villain, Sephiroth. Elements of The Compilation of Final Fantasy VII later touched upon her character further, such as the film Advent Children in which she attempts to convince Cloud to let go of his self-imposed guilt and move on with his life after Sephiroth’s defeat.

Named the pin-up girl of the “cyber generation” by The New York Times, Tifa has been compared to Lara Croft as an example of a strong, independent and attractive female character in video games. Sources such as IGN and UGO.com have repeatedly praised both the character’s strength and appearance and described her as one of the best female characters in gaming, while Play named her the “most adored” of the Final Fantasy series’ female characters. In 2007, Dengeki PlayStation named her the eighth best fictional character all time to appear in games for the Sony PlayStation.
