Final Fantasy X/Dissidia: Jecht

Thursday, July 8th, 2010


Blitzball prodigy, plus manliness, plus a laidback appeal—these qualities make Jecht one of the more popular villains in the Final Fantasy series. Legendary blitzball superstar Jecht appears in Final Fantasy X as the main antagonist and in Final Fantasy Dissidia as a warrior serving Chaos, the God of Discord. He appears as a tall and muscular bronzed man wielding a nasty black sword, possessing a penchant for liquor and a tendency to drink too heavily. While actually kind-hearted, Jecht comes off as overtly cocky and arrogant, referring to himself as the “Great Jecht” and occasionally proclaims himself to be the best blitzball player there is.




Well, the man was a blitzball celebrity, after all—famed and legendary for refining his own blitzball technique “Sublimely Magnificent Jecht Shot Mark III” (or simply “The Jecht Shot”)—until his career hit a slump and he resorted to drinking like a maddened drunkard. Jecht is also the father of the FFX protagonist Tidus, who claims to hate his dad for putting him and his mother through difficult times, and for leaving him under a lot of pressure living up to the blitzball phenomenon that was his father, Jecht.


Jecht is unsympathetically critical of Tidus, but he does so to push his son to try harder and disprove him. The cosplayer, Defran, chose to make the “bronze god” come alive and he does so marvelously!




Check out that nasty flaming sword!

Final Fantasy X: Yuna 05

final fantasy x cosplay - yuna 05

Nomura Tetsuya designed Yuna with hibiscus flowers as her name depicts. Her name also means “night” so her weapons are empowered by the moon. Yuna also has heterochromia, which explains her different colored eyes; her blue eye comes from her half-Spiran bloodline and her green eye comes from her half-Al Bhed bloodline.

Beautiful cosplay! Good location too. I wonder if she had a hard time keeping her hair fixed? Thanks for sharing this!

Final Fantasy X: Auron

Thursday, August 21st, 2008

final fanatasy x cosplay - auron This 35-year-old unsent warrior monk for Bevelle whose attack to Yunalesca led to his death, Auron is Tidus‘ Mentor and Yuna’s guardian. He kept his status of being an unsent a secret, although there were a lot of suspicions raised when he refused to enter the farplane at Guadosalam. He was eventually laid to rest when Yu Yevon was finally defeated.

I can’t believe how accurate this cosplay is! I love the costume’s details and the cosplayer’s attitude. Nice job!

Final Fantasy X: Rikku

Wednesday, January 23rd, 2008

final fantasy x cosplay - rikkuTechnically, this is the 5th Rikku I’m posting on this blog. But I didn’t label the post that way because she is the first Rikku I found who cosplayed the X version rather than the more popular X-2 versions.

Rikku is perky and optimistic. She has a close friendship with Tidus, as they are quite similar in their personalities. Since she is an Al Bhed, she suffered discrimination from the Yevonites, but this didn’t change her positive outlook in life. She did whatever she could do to save Yuna from giving her life with the Final Summoning.

I think I like this costume of Rikku’s more than the X-2 ones… I’m not entirely sure why that it. But I think a lot of people will disagree with me on this.

Final Fantasy X: Yuna 03

Tuesday, August 28th, 2007

final fantasy x cosplay - yunaI was surprised to see the response of people from Sanriotown with my Cosplay Blog. But I didn’t think I could get to feature a Sanriotown Member as one of the cosplayers..!

I came across this picture from Luty’s Blog and immediately emailed her to ask if I could feature her. She sent me her original photo. She happily accepted my request, and this is what she has to say about her cosplay:

And the very last?

Is Yuna, from FF X! This one i?ve made everything!! Cutting, sewing, painting little flowers! It was a lot of work, but I love to do this kind of thing! And here you can see that I was with sore eyes too, like Raein?. XD

From: Luty Mishima

Very impressive! One of the best home-made cosplays I’ve ever come across! And her sore eyes doesn’t really show on this picture…

Great job, Luty! I hope I get to see more of your cosplays soon!

Final Fantasy X: Lulu

Thursday, August 16th, 2007

final fantasy x cosplay - luluThe black mage of the Final Fantasy X game, Lulu (or “Ruru” in the direct Japanese translation) carries a dark past within her, being once the Guardian of the fallen Ginnem. And now her duty falls with Yuna the Summoner and her team.

Lulu’s character design breaks the common connotation of a typical black mage character in the Final Fantasy series, making her a favorite amongst cosplayers…

This picture blows me away. Although I believe this girl is actually a professional model with a professional photographer. None the less, it’s quite impressive, though I had the impression that Lulu’s make-up would be darker than this… This cosplayer doesn’t give that “dark aura” that Lulu gives.

But maybe that’s just me…
