With the remake of Final Fantasy VII on horizon, cosplayer Kalisi_vamp has debuted her incredibly accurate take on Tifa Lockhart, bringing the character to life in stunning detail.
Final Fantasy is one of the most legendary gaming franchises in the world, debuting back in 1987 when the first title released on the Nintendo Entertainment System. Since then, Square Enix has released 15 installments in the main series, capturing the imagination of players across the globe for over three decades.
For many, Final Fantasy 7 is the pinnacle of the series so far, full of characters that players really gravitate too, and cosplayer Kalisi_vamp has decided to show her appreciation for Tifa Lockhart with an incredibly accurate cosplay of the eco-terrorist.
In the game, Tifa is the strong love interest of Cloud Strife, the game's main character. Part of the AVALANCHE eco-terrorist group determined to take down the evil Sephiroth who is intent on destroying the planet, the childhood friends reunite as she tries to keep him safe after noting a shift in his personality, eventually helping him defeat the villain once and for all at the epic conclusion of the game.
With the fiesty bruiser, who uses her fists to deadly effect, playing such an integral part in the story, it's no surprise that Kallisi_vamp wanted to cosplay as her, and revealed her almost perfect recreation of the character on Instagram.
Not only has she perfectly recreated her recognizable black-and-white-top, but Tifa's pleated skirt is also present, with the same braces that hold it up, and even the exact same belt, complete with a perfect replica of the buckle. Kallisi_vamp's cosplay is excellent from head to toe, with the classic red boots even featured for fans of the series to enjoy.
While the outfit itself is complete, she admits the cosplay isn't totally finished yet, with a makeup test still to do as she perfects the entire look, which she says is an "honor" to create.
Lockhart's bravery, strength, and independent nature has seen her described as one of the best female characters in gaming, and with players set to meet her again in March when the Final Fantasy VII remake launches, Kallisi_vamps cosplay will surely add even more hype to anyone excited to get their hands on the game.
