Final Fantasy X-2 Alchemist
I’m going to ignore that they’re supposed to be alchemists. They’d fit right in as extras in Mad Max. Or maybe in a gun fighting roller derby? Yuna’s color scheme made me think of Robotnik from Sonic the Hedgehog. I don’t care for her bulky swiss cheese wheel shoulder pads. Paine’s gun is large and in charge, but those orange panties say “here’s my crotch!” It’s very distracting. Rikku’s outfit is pretty similar to Paine’s, but her hair kind of works with this for once. Good for you, Rikku.
This looks like some kind of Goodwill hodgepodge of their Gunner, Warrior, and Black Mage outfits, creating an even worse eyesore than any of those were alone. Yuna looks like she’s in the process of being digested by a robot. Paine’s orange crotch has blinded me as well, Erin, and the pink suspender outlines aren’t helping. Rikku’s colors actually work here and she’s a thankfully toned-down version of everything terrible the other two are doing.
Not sure why Paine’s gun is so much bigger than the other two. She’s already got the “here’s my crotch” action going on. Neither is as repulsive as the pink straps. I agree that Rikku pulls it off best with a more pleasing color combination and less audacious shoulder pads. Shoulder armor? Metal things on shoulders with holes in them.

Useful job, but the clothing is ugly as sin. Also, I don’t understand why Nomura didn’t take the opportunity to put Rikku in her original outfit from X and have the other two based off of that. I guess given the implication of dresspheres in game, it wouldn’t have made sense, but still.
That’s a clever suggestion–maybe all the orange is some sort of homage to FFX Rikku? A terrible, terrible homage.
