    Sure, the costume looks great… But the woman doesn’t look like Lightning at all, starting with the fact that she’s Japanese and Lightning was clearly designed like an anime character would be: Surprisingly not Japanese. She could at least be glaring like Lightning ALWAYS is :/

    • I don’t think it’s possible to look like Lightning in real life. The
      face is just too… “CG perfect”. But hey… if we wanna get to it; I
      always found she looked Eurasian more than directly Asian anyways. And kinda like Tifa’s appearance from FF:Advent Children, instead of finding
      someone who matches some of the nuanced physical traits (like that
      super-fine jawline Lightning has, or the wide eyes and earnest smile Tifa has), they just found someone with all the common traits you find here — a very “Japanese-idol” look.

    Still no news regarding FF XIII Versus and FF X HD

    • im seriously getting upset about it…

  • *Complains about the shield being too small, and inaccuracies in comparison to the original design*

    So basically they had an event to celebrate the 25th anniversary and shared information many most likely knew? Cool I guess.

    Still bitter bout FFV though.

    So who got to eat the cake?

      What about FFV? edit: the iOS port?

      • Eh, I just expected a bit more. They were all up in arms for FF3 and FF4. Especially FF4.

        • I don’t care about V, but they better make a beautiful, super polished 3DS remake vor VI.. 8)

    hehe cuties and the next video on the playlist was eyes on me woots!

  • The armor looks fine for the most part. I think it’s the face that differed a bit from Lightning’s CG looks; the model’s face is slightly round, whereas Light’s face is a bit long.

    Wait, is she smiling in that pic there? *gasp* Lightning doesn’t smile O___o

  • SpellcraftQuill

    Dark Eidolons come to us!

  • Not a fan of this cosplay. The outfit is flawless, but the lady in it is anything but.

    Better than her Lightning Returns look, that’s for sure.
