I wanted to make something new for Niagara Falls Comic Con 2014; but nothing too crazy since it was my first con in 5 years. I still had my Rikku wig, and found her freelancer/no dressphere costume from Last Mission on the net while browsing some cute Rikku outfits. Simple yet effective - perfect!! It was my first time gradient-dying fabric; something I totally want to continue doing for future costumes. This costume also greatly improved my hand-sewing.
Everyone loved my chocobo on a stick :B
