How to Cosplay as Oerba Yun Fang

Final Fantasy XIII is one of the most visually stunning video games I've ever played, which makes it an excellent muse for character cosplay. Oerba Yun Fang is one of my favorite characters from the game; she's good looking, bad ass and she has a really awesome outfit. If you are looking to cosplay as Fang for a convention of Final Fantasy themed party, look no further. Unless you are shopping from the UK or EU, in which case you need to click here.

Oerba Yun Fang Outfit
First of all, you'll need Fang's iconic blue sash outfit, and I've found a beautiful and faithful replica on the right. It comes with everything you see in the photo, but sadly doesn't include any boots. Fret not though, as you can pick up replicas of those here. They're pretty cute!

A must have accessory for any Fang costume is her cool arm tattoo that you can see in the picture above. EileenGalvin has made a stencil design of the tattoo that you can use. Here's a guide on how to use the design on a piece of paper to create your own realistic looking temporary tattoo. Be sure to have some rubbing alcohol on hand in case you don't get it right first time.

Cosplay Wig
Once that is done, you'll need to style your hair like Fang's. Her hair has quite a unique and distinct haircut, which can be hard to replicate even if you already have long black hair, but I've found a wig that pretty closely resembles it which I've featured on the left.

So there you go, a cute Fang costume for your convention or party. I hope you have a tonne of fun dressing up! If you liked this post be sure to check out the rest of this blog for even more fun cosplay and costume ideas for women. In particular, I've done a number of guides on how to cosplay as various characters from FFXIII and it's sequel, including Lightning, Serah and Vanille, so if you are looking for a fun group costume theme, check them out! Pairing up with a friend dressed as Vanille is especially fun.
