No regrets when I say I am more than a little obsessed with Final Fantasy VII’s Sephiroth, especially seeing him in this generation’s graphics thanks to the upcoming remake. The one-winged angle was my first video game crush and honestly, that probably explains a lot. The Super Soldier was a source of strife for characters like Cloud (we got puns) while also being the source of massive fangirl swooning all over the world. It’s because of that fandom that I would be completely in the wrong if I didn’t share this amazing female reinterpretation of the iconic character and honestly? I think I’m in love all over again …
The cosplayer in question goes by the name Mythic Roots Design and Cosplay and she is no stranger to iconic characters from games all over. Star Wars, Borderlands, Final Fantasy, she does it all and does it incredibly well! You can find even more of her incredible work right here on her Facebook page.
As for the character himself, here’s more about Sephiroth:
“Before his fall from grace, Sephiroth was one of the most lauded success stories of the Shinra Electric Power Company’s SOLDIER program. A great warrior idolized by the public and infantrymen alike for his strength and discipline in combat, Sephiroth’s many successes in the field of battle during the conflicts surrounding the Shinra Electric Power Company’s bid for global domination led to his status as a celebrity war hero and the poster boy for both the Shinra Military and the company’s SOLDIER program. Learning of his true origins drove him insane, causing him to be driven by a new desire to destroy the world.”
