If you walk into a costume shop and say you want to see Final Fantasy costumes, they might roll their eyes at you. If you walk in during the height of costume season, you might get laughed out of the place. There are a number of things that you should know, first about costumes in general and secondly about Final Fantasy.
Costumes are worn for a number of reasons. Some people only wear them once a year for Halloween, while others wear them frequently. These people might choose to go to Cosplay conventions and events. Cosplay, of course, means costume play. Everyone dresses up in the characters and costumes of their choice.
There are dozens of Final Fantasy costumes; it is a wide category of costume looks that range from warriors and rulers to vixens, fairies and even more. Costumes can be dark and sinister looking or bright and airy. They can be heavy and cumbersome to very bare and alluring. For every costume choice, there are just as many options for makeup and for accessories, hairstyles and more. The only limit is your imagination and your bravery. If your mind can dream it and you have the fortitude to pull it off, then any costume will work for you.
When you walk in to a shop and ask for a vampire costume, you know just about what you will get. The same goes for a cheerleader, a superhero or an animal. But, if you are a brilliantly creative person, you might take all of those things and make your own creation. How about a vampire cheerleader, for instance or a superhero dog? That is the advantage of being more creative- you don’t have to end up worried that five other people will look the same when you arrive at a party or other event.
Because there are no set rules and the Final Fantasy line is ever expanding, there is no way to list all of the options here. A costume shop can give you some advice and may even be able to give you the suggestions that you need to choose the right one for you. Base your decision on what you would be comfortable wearing and how you feel about wearing revealing clothing or carrying certain weapons. If you are new to the world of cosplay, you might consult someone who is more familiar to make sure that you will fit in and be comfortable. Confidence is one of the most important aspects of your Final Fantasy costumes.
