While many cosplayers show off impeccable art and photography, few look exactly like the character they’re cosplaying. Here, UK based cosplayer aequorinn is an Aerith lookalike, looking stunning in a beautiful rendition of her fancy Wall Market dress.
THE MAGNIFICENT COSPLAY OF AERIT FROM AEQUORINN
aequorinn is a 22-year-old cosplayer from the UK who specializes in cosplaying video game characters. As a big fan of JRPGs, she’s put herself in the shoes of characters ranging from fire emblemby Byleth for FF7Cloud Strife.
Recently, she shared her version of Aerith’s gorgeous Wall Market dress on the r/gaming subreddit. Overall, the dress took her over a month to construct, from the cascading ruffles to the floral bodice. The multi-dimensional fabric adds depth to an already intricate look, resulting in a dress worthy of a heroine. Plus, she styled the wig herself, using a combination of heat, teasing brushes, and lots of hairspray. Despite all the materials needed to carefully craft the hairstyle, the hair still falls in lovely soft waves.
The Wall Market Dress is a clothing option found in the Wall Market chapter of the Final Fantasy 7 Remake, where you accompany Aerith on a mission to infiltrate Don Corneo’s mansion. One of three dresses, Aerith’s wall market appearance depends on the number of side quests the player completes – the more quests completed, the more sophisticated Aerith’s appearance.
This dark red dress is the most elegant look, decidedly more dramatic and whimsical than the other three dresses. Although it is not difficult to obtain, the player must complete six side quests to obtain this lavish look. That being said, it’s definitely worth having a look at this beautiful design.
Final Fantasy 7 Remake is available to play on PS4, PS5 and PC.
