Bollywood Final Fantasy Summons by etaru Bollywood Final Fantasy Summons by etaru
An amazing group of friends had an idea of doing Final Fantasy summons/creatures in original Bollywood style outfits, I had to get in on it! Having chosen the challenging to interpret and somewhat hilarious Cactuar, I had think of a design and stick to it, less I went crazy with tribal Bollywood ideas, especially when the sari I ordered online never arrived. I decided to take inspiration from Aishwarya Rai for the wig and makeup, and stick with sage greens, golds and whites to represent cactus flowers and needles.
The bodice is patterned by me from a darker green brocade, and used leftover for an accenting trim on the bottom of the skirt. The skirt was made from taffeta and accented with organza draping around the mid section, complimented by green and white rhinestones in lines like little needles. The sari was my favorite part, it was decorated with hundreds of crystal rhinestones and green and white flowers like the delicate blossoms on a desert cactus. The jewelry was purchased on Ebay, and I made a headband with three gold needles like King Cactuar.

I was incredibly happy to be a part of Dia and Umister's Bollywood Final Fantasy summons group, and was nothing short of impressed with the talented ladies who were involved with it. Plus, none of the colors clashed or overlapped, and each design was uniquely its own!

Top to bottom: Shiva, Phoenix, Siren, Carbuncle, Cactuar, Sylph, Odin
