A Thousand Words by xRikku-chanx A Thousand Words by xRikku-chanx
"Wanting to do anything to save someone... I understand how that feels." -Rikku (FFX-2)

I had the absolute pleasure of working with Ger Tysk of Chou-wa Photography and "Breaking All the Rules" (you can find her cosplay book project here: [link] at Acen 2013! I didn't have much of a chance to fix up my Thief Rikku in time, but I am SOOOOOOO excited about these photos! This was a shot I've ALWAYS wanted to recreate from the game. The 1000 Words concert shows the more stoic/emotional side of Rikku, like her personality in FFX. Those memories never left her (for a lot of FFX-2 it seems she's still coping with the hardships from the past) and she connects with Lenne and Shuyin's tragic story. She may be wearing a yellow bikini and acting silly the majority of the game, but she has depth she doesn't like to show...except in moments like this. (Not to mention how lovely the Thunder Plains look when the sun suddenly breaks through the clouds!)

*end Rikku ramble ><*

I have sooooo many photos to post from C2E2/Acen! I can't even remember the last time I had this many to upload! It's really interesting to see how different photogs photograph one of my cosplays (especially because I photographed it as well!). A bunch of yours are in my queue!! ^^
