Final Fantasy VII: Tifa Lockheart

Tuesday, March 23rd, 2010


If I were a judge in a cosplay contest and I see her as a contestant, the contest has ended before it even began.

The looks, figure, and costume is very similar to the game itself.  Tifa Lockheart is actually Cloud Strife’s, the main character of FF VII, childhoood-friend-turned-ally when the universe decided to have Cloud and his party save the entire planet.  During the game, when you read between the scenarios, it seems like Cloud is torn between two women.  But come on, how can you say NO to a girl like this? Seriously Cloud.  If Tifa’s part of the choice, she definitely has to win.  How can Tifa even compare to to Aerith (the other girl) when it comes to fighting skills, childhood memories you both shared and the FIGURE DEPARTMENT?! :D

Final Fantasy VII: Yuffie Kisaragi 02

final fantasy vii cosplay - yuffie kisaragi 02Aside from her original role in Final Fantasy VII, Yuffie has made several other cameo appearances in the game franchise. In the Dirge of Cerberus, she helped Vincent and aided the WRO in their fight against Deepground. She also encountered Zack in Crisis Core and enlisted him to help her find treasures in several of the game’s side missions.

I can say one thing, she’s pretty daring to be wearing Yuffie’s clothes during Winter Comiket. Thanks again to Somiya for sending this in!

Final Fantasy VII: Yuffie Kisaragi

unknown cosplay 016 And then there was 16.

I never thought I’d be posting so many different anonymous cosplays here in this blog. But I’m really curious to know who these cosplayers are and what series they’re cosplaying from.

Her headband reminds me of Naruto, but I don’t remember any ninjas like her. I could be wrong though, since I’m not all that familiar with Naruto.

Thoughts? Guesses? Please leave them at the comments section, thank you!

EDIT: Thanks to Anime Illusions’ Snoozer for the reference pic showing this is Yuffie from Final Fantasy VII!

Final Fantasy VII: Aerith Gainsborough

final fantasy 7 cosplay - aerith gainsboroughFirst, I have to say… This girl looks like the same cosplayer as Felicia of Darkstalkers.

Makes me curious to know who she really is… But I unfortunately have no leads.If anyone can point me in the right direction, I’m all ears!

Anyway, Aerith, the flower girl of Final Fantasy VII who turned out to be the one who can summon the only force capable of repelling the ultimate destructive magic handled by Sephiroth known as “Meteor”. She unfortunately perishes in the game, but most Final Fantasy VII fans still see her as an icon of the series.

That weapon she’s holding look like it’s really made out of marble. Awesome job with this cosplay!

Final Fantasy VII: Reno

Sunday, January 6th, 2008

final fantasy 7 cosplay - reno Reno is well known as the comic relief of Final Fantasy VII. He is a member of the Turks or Department of Administrative Research, a group that perform covert operations on behalf of Shinra. Though his way of wearing his Turks uniform portrays him to be lazy and arrogant, he is actually very skilled in using his weapon, the Electro-Mag Rod, and takes a lot of pride in his work. He also loves to gossip and is a pretty good helicopter pilot.

Quite an impressive cosplay of Reno. One can actually feel his arrogance through the photograph. I wouldn’t be surprised if he accidentally steps on Rude’s sunglasses again though…

Final Fantasy VII: Tifa Lockhart 02

Wednesday, October 17th, 2007

final fantasy 7 cosplay - tifa lockhartI think I may have found a nice rival for the Philippine Tifa Lockhart.

I mean… really… she’s… “wow”.

Anyway… Tifa Lockhart is Cloud’s childhood friend. She is one of the head of the group called AVALANCHE, who’s main objective is to destroy Shinra.

Based on technicality, this cosplayer does not have the low, pony-tailed hair with the dolphin-like end… But really… Can you complain about such a tiny detail?

Final Fantasy VII: Tifa Lockhart

Tuesday, October 9th, 2007


A recent game convention in the Philippines known as the GX-Con hosted a lot of cosplayers in the event. One of the best looking cosplayers was Tifa Lockhart from Final Fantasy VII. She was interviewed by the White-haired Journalist�from

Tifa Lockhart of Final Fantasy VII.� Need I say more? She’s one of the best Tifa cosplayers I’ve ever seen.� She’s very kind, not turning down anyone who wanted to have a picture with her.� If she becomes an actress, I definitely see a bright future ahead of this girl. - White-haired Journalist

This is definitely an impressive cosplay. She looks very nice even though it’s not a studio-type, professionally done photo! It’s brilliant!

I just wonder… If that’s the White-haired journalist beside her, then why isn’t his hair white? ^o^
