FFVII 10th Anniversary by peannlui FFVII 10th Anniversary by peannlui
This is to commemorate the tenth anniversary of Final Fantasy VII's first release in Japan on 31st January 1997. I'm sticking this up a day early, as it's likely I'll completely forget to post it on the day (lack of free time with my studies), but here we go!

The twist here is that I've put the characters in American Civil War costume (and other outfits of the mid 19th century) - I thought it'd be a neat change from Yubinbasha-esque kimonos or - d'oh! - a massive birthday cake! %) Maybe they also represent the opposite views of customers after FF7's advertising hype in the States?

I am hugely welcome to comments, and thank you. :D

This is really rather clever. Looks like you kept Yuffie in a kimono, though. Makes sense, since she's from Wutai. :)

I like these clothes ! That's really better stuff that the goth-dark-SM clothes they wear in Advent Children. Cool drawing, Cloud's and Cid's expressions are great, too. Congratulations.

Actually, I found out that it is NOT the tenth anneversary of FFVII yet. If you look closely, you will see on the game box the true date. Next month. Near to my birthday!
October 9th might be the birthday of Final Fantasy VII.

Thank you!!! :)

I modelled the costumes on what soldiers and officers wore during the American Civil War... Vincent's outfit, since he is actually older than he looks, is modelled from the American War Of Independence era. O_O
(Trivia: The Shinra are dressed as Confederates! XD)

Yeah, I know. :D I've included the entire cast, dead alive and otherwise, as well as the people who've brought them to where they are today. Speaking of Aeris, did you notice the bandage around her stomach..?
