Cosplay Wednesday – Final Fantasy VII’s Tifa Lockhart

Cosplay Wednesday - Final Fantasy VII's Tifa Lockhart
Final Fantasy VII is now out on Steam! This JRPG gem may have taken 16 years to make the jump to Valve’s platform, but there is a reason fans still play it to this day. Many still carry a torch for Aerith, but this cosplayer would rather show her love for AVALANCHE fighter Tifa Lockhart.

Australian cosplayer Katyuska  “MoonFoxUltima” has been a longtime fan of Final Fantasy VII. Hooked on the OST, she mentions on her DeviantArt:

“It’s been so many years since Ive played this game and it’s so easy to forget how great of a game it was. Like any game as soon as I hear the music all those familiar emotions come back and it all a sudden feels like I finished it yesterday.”

Showing her appreciation for the game, she originally donned her Tifa costume when she was 14. Rather than do something overly feminine with her shots, she decided to go the action route in these shots, Meteor-striking and cheering like the best of them. Ironically though, her favorite Final Fantasy title is Final Fantasy VIII.
