Final Fantasy X-2: Paine, Rikku, and Yuna

Wednesday, February 11th, 2009

final fantasy x-2 cosplay - paine, rikku, and yuna / yuripa

With Tidus’ disappearance, Yuna sets out to find clues to lead her back to him with the help of Rikku and Paine. Although Yuna and Rikku have changed their lives to live in a more positive lifestyle, their companion, Paine, is more emotionally distant and prefers to keep her past a secret from the two.

You have to love the location and the characters’ poses on this photo. Wonderful job on the props too! Great work!

Final Fantasy X-2: Yuna 03

final fantasy x-2 cosplay - yuna 03The kind-hearted summoner changes for after the events in Final Fantasy X. Yuna still puts others’ needs before her own, but she becomes more open and direct, looking up to Rikku as a sort of role-model. She even picked up Rikku’s expressions such as “disasteriffic” and “oh, poopie!”; something the younger Yuna wouldn’t have dreamed of saying.

Yuna still seems to be one of the cosplayers’ favorite character to cosplay even though the game’s already somewhat old. I love seeing different versions of Yuna from different parts of the world.

EDIT: Thanks to Raiku for the Deviant Art Link!

I’m not sure if Koffel is the cosplayer or the photographer of this image since I found it in a random website, but if anyone would like to point me in the right direction where this is originally from, please do let me know!

Final Fantasy X-2: LeBlanc

Monday, October 6th, 2008

final fantasy x-2 cosplay - leblancWell, I’ll be.

I believe several people speculated this to be someone from Final Fantasy, though I’ve never really gotten her character name. From what I know about this image (aside from it sitting in my old hard drive for a while now), it was taken from PC Online and she’s a character from an MMO game.

Other than that, the background of the photo looks the same as Aerith Gainsborough’s from Final Fantasy VII. Taken at the same time in the same venue maybe?

EDIT: A huge thanks to Nathan for commenting to let me know that this is LeBlanc, the leader of LeBlanc Syndicate from Final Fantasy X-2!

Final Fantasy X-2: Rikku and Yuna

Wednesday, September 17th, 2008

final fantasy x-2 cosplay - chibi rikku and yunaOr should I say, “chibi” Rikku?

I’m not sure about Rikku having a songstress outfit; I’ve never played the game before. But they’re very cute though. I wonder if they’re sisters?

I think Yuna’s hair needs to be a little bit more flipped. I really like her boots though. Great job on this, and thanks for sharing!

Final Fantasy X-2: Yuna

Saturday, August 2nd, 2008

final fantasy x-2 cosplay - yunaI can’t believe, of all the Yuna’s I’ve featured in this blog, I’ve never featured a Final Fantasy X-2 version of her yet!

Yuna is the leader of the infamous Japanese craze, YRP or “YuRiPa” as one would call it. The events in X-2 occurs after Final Fantasy X and Yuna becomes a gunner and a sphere hunter. She joins Gullwings with the hopes of learning more about the sphere keeping a young man resembling Tidus prison.

I think I prefer the younger Yuna from Final Fantasy X than this one. I’m not entirely sure why. But this seems to be the more popular Yuna of the two. Nice cosplaying!

Final Fantasy X-2: Rikku 05

final fantasy x-2 cosplay - rikku 05

I have a feeling this Rikku maybe the same as this one. Although I’m not all that certain… The costume has a lot of similarities though.

I found this from Baka Yumii’s Flickr… And since I’ve spoken about Rikku in five separate occasions already, I wouldn’t want to bore you all. But do you think this cosplayer could be the same as the first one I posted?

final fantasy x-2 cosplay - ying dong as rikkuOh my gosh, wow, I can’t believe I totally missed this!

Here I was looking for some awesome cosplays and I didn’t notice Ying Dong of Sanriotown was the legendary Rikku cosplayer!

I say legendary since I’ve seen this photo a long time ago and I always wondered who this girl was! I saw this image in Ying’s Flickr Account and read this caption:

That’s me! Full set of images can be seen at

That is so awesome, Ying! No wonder you love cosplays so much! You make such an awesome Rikku! I hope you do more cosplays and share them on Sanriotown!
