Shiva sisters by neko-tin Shiva sisters by neko-tin
Costume inspired by Shiva sisters

Nix and Stiria are the most vivid characters in the game and I let my imagination run with them. I incorporated a lot of steampunk and mechanical elements :3 It was a real challenge, I redrew leg armor several times to make it more anatomical so Lightning would be able to move in it! 

In third-person games we're watching character's back 80% of the time, so I consider Lightning's behind one of the most important part. That's why I made a low back and a tattoo ;)
 
I don't usually submit my drawings on DeviantArt, because I don't have much time to draw for myself and not for work Т_Т But as soon as I heard about customization contest, I couldn't help but draw several nights in a row still working at daytime.  So now I look like a zombie and all of my sketches don't fit in one collage, but I'm ready to do more just to receive an autograph from Nomura-san!

I know my watchers and fans of my Lightning cosplay will understand my passion and wish me luck)

P.S. I'm not going to sleep another night and draw a second costume for Lightning XD

My second concept - Ifrit Lightning

The mechanical elements on her shield and tattoo are really nice touches; it adds a slight Steampunk element, almost as if she were a clockwork knight. I think choosing Shiva as inspiration for this outfit was a good choice, as it makes the costume very visually interesting. Like I mentioned on another design submission, if I were a woman and had the body for it, I would cosplay this outfit in a heartbeat!

This is a fantastic blending of some of the best elements of the FFXIII mythos with just enough individual touches to make it really unique.

Excellent job!

If you win, can we expect to see you wearing this?
