Selphie is an energetic, spunky and slightly clumsy transfer student at Balamb Garden. A powerful magic user Selphie is filled with many talents that lie deep beneath the surface. Eventually becoming the pilot of the Ragnarok Airship, Selphie is definitely more than meets the eye.
This costume was made very spur of the moment. I always liked Selphie, she was rather annoying and seemed like quite an air head, but right from the get go she has insanely good magic and has the potential to be one of the strongest characters in the game. I ended up with a wig that worked perfectly for her (it was actually the wig from the Paper Bag Princess costume) so I styled it up and just happened to come across the perfect yellow fabric at work, for a really good price at that, and I also managed to get a free drapery rod that I ended up turning into the nunchakus. So this costume really just ended up falling together without any real stress or effort in finding things. It was however insanely complicated for what it actually was. I took some of my own artistic license with a few of the details of her costume (such as the boots, zipper pull, and necklace) But I am however very happy with how it turned out and I absolutely love the pictures Kevin took!
