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.

Jillian

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.

Joey

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.

I enjoy them both immensely but I have to give it to the ladies because of the gents over-saturating the pant market with roses.

Who Wore It Best? | Angry Birds Halloween Edition

We don’t typically look at or care about human fashion here at Final Fashionista, but we’re making an exception for Halloween. Today’s Who Wore It Best? competition is between two variations on the Yellow Angry Bird (“Chuck,” apparently) costume: gents vs. ladies, standard vs. deluxe.

AngryBirdsHalloween

Angry Birds “Chuck” Costume


Joey

Obviously my gut instinct was to give it to whoever best captured the “angry” or “bird” look, but they both look so happy. I’m giving it to the guy for at least matching the gaze of his bird costume. Also, 40 pounds!? My god. Are there hidden pockets stuffed with gold in that thing?

Erin

I’m unclear what makes the 40 pound one “deluxe.” 10 more pounds to look just as stupid. I’m also giving it to the guy, for making the cheaper bird head look just as…good? Just as…yellow?…birdy?

Jillian

The guy definitely has a disadvantage here since his costume appears to just be a bird-bib, while the woman’s is an actual suit with a backside and tail. I think his inappropriately happy look is more “Ahh, I’m a bird kamikaze-ing into a giant stack of bricks!” so a third vote for him.


Winner: Gent

Paine looks slightly better here. I like her dark purple top, but again with the cut outs! I like her sleeves best of the three. Rikku has a crazy palette going on; those boots especially are distracting. Yuna…meh.

Scores Paine Yuna Rikku

Jillian

Yuna’s dual vortex sleeves are freaking me out. Apparently none of these girls know what size shirts to buy, and Paine has returned to her hole-punch tailor. Too many colors on Rikku and those tights are bedroom-only, Yuna’s skirt looks like a curtain she stole from a brothel, and Paine’s tally mark cleavage circle might as well say LOOK BOOBS. Paine, only for the honestly awesome checkered pants.

I like everything about Paine’s look except those checkered pants. The studs make them look super uncomfortable. Meanwhile, Yuna looks so comfortable, if a bit breezy. I agree that Rikku’s color scheme is nuts; a few short of a rainbow.

Joey

This was a really tough decision for me. Queen and Deuce are automatically out of the running for making me bored on sight. Also, I don’t know if Queen is anemic or something, but her pose isn’t very regal. Sice has a neat weapon and her pose and expression tell us she means business. Unfortunately, her torn up cape tells me that business isn’t going very well. Cinque’s prissy pose and fancy hairstyle have a nice contrast with her brute force weapon. Here she is in action.

Jillian

Having worn school uniforms for 12 years, I can tell you that Queen is the only one who isn’t going to get expelled for skirt shortness. That said, I agree that her anemic slump is off-putting and her single barrette that’s not accomplishing anything is driving me crazy. I like Deuce’s asymmetrical scarf-cape the best, but her extra bang-slash-mutton chops ruin it. Cinque has the vacant stare of Sansa Stark and the annoying hair of Pippi Longstocking; besides the insanely oversized lamp mace, she’s pretty boring. Sice earns points for fitted knee-high boots on top of thigh-high stockings–legs for days–but the raggedy cape is either trying too hard to be badass, or not trying hard enough to follow proper washing instructions.

Erin

Cinque. Jillian said it before and I can’t help but agree. That hair is the worst. It’s not even a natural style; she had to work to make it look like that. She had to cut and blow out ear-length bangs and then use a curling iron to make two giant ringlet pigtails. Turn that weapon upside down and stick it in a lawn, it looks like a solar-powered garden light. Sice has my favorite overall look–I think I always find white hair on a younger character visually appealing. The tattered cape, cold hard glance, and her overall posture says she’s seen this crap before and is not having it. I also love the boots/stockings combination. Deuce looks like she doesn’t belong, something is too simple. But maybe she’s actually the one to be feared most and that wand in her hands is a WMD. Deuce has the same hairdresser as Cinque…there was a special on earbangs, I guess? Seven, I miss the scarf–you look incomplete. I don’t really want to find out what her weapon does, whatever it inflicts does not look comfortable. I do like her hair, but second to Sice, obvs. Jillian was spot on about Queen’s stupid barrette affixed to MORE EARBANGS…and Joey, I agree with what you said re: Queen and Deuce, the levels of boring here are unmatched.

Joey

You two and your rational thinking about hair! That’s the beauty of ridiculous hair in games! No blow-dryer required! Also you just can’t pass up any opportunity to burn Sansa, huh? In the end I’m going to give it to Cater because these are school uniforms and she’s the only one prepared for academics with her backpack. Even if it is super tiny. Her finger gun pose while holding a real gun in her other hand is so meta I can’t even handle it. Also I like her idle animation.
FinalFantasyType0_Cater

Jillian

Cater is a slightly more interesting Cinque with the backpack and knee-highs, but otherwise, yawn. It’s between Seven and Rem for me: I love the extra layer of ruffles Rem is rocking on both her skirt and jacket, and the balance between the longer-yet-thinner cape. Her dual swords have more style than any of the other girls, especially with their turquoise insets. Seven is doing her own thing, forgoing the cape entirely but keeping a pop of red thanks to the unbuttoned collar of her jacket. She has the only hairstyle I don’t want to shave, and the good sense to wear biker shorts under her skirt. Love her scorpion whip and v-cut boots, but minor deduction for the oversized spaulders. I’m giving it to Seven, in spite of Rem’s guilt-inducing doe eyes.
FinalFantasyType0_Seven

Erin

Cater…bang bang! Finger gun! Pew pew pew! Did she take that pistol off of a dead pirate? I’ve had that haircut in real life and can tell you, it is not cute. As for Rem, I like her Mary Jane shoes and added (modesty?) ruffle. I’m also a fan of a weapon in each hand! Her earbangs border on long layers, so I’ll be a little less grossed out with her hair, but that part down the middle of her hair, with it hanging so long down the sides, drags her whole face down. Does it bother anyone else that four of the girls are wearing (ugly) loafers and three are not? It’s a tossup for me between Rem and Sice, but because Sice doesn’t have earbangs (I will call them “swoopy side bangs”), she wins the whole thing.

If Paine’s robe was longer and didn’t have a hole in it, she would have taken this. I’ll give Rikku an edge over Yuna for a slightly bolder look. Not sure why all three have flame wrist details around their cuffs, though.

Erin

No surprise here, Yuna looks the classiest out of the lot. Coolest staff, no cutouts, no feathers (or is that hair?). Slight edge for 2nd to Rikku, because I really don’t like Paine’s tunic and hood situation.

Jillian

The belly cutout theme on Paine is starting to get old. Does she buy her clothes that way or cut holes herself? Rikku’s crazy turban headscarf is too much, although the detailing on her robe is feisty. Yuna’s is a little too bland. She also appears to have a random tooth dangling from her staff; don’t want to know what that’s about.

The most important part of witch/mage costumes to me is the hat. Yuna’s has the best color and least ridiculous tassel. Rikku’s green/pink color scheme is so distracting and non-black magey. Despite the silly midriff, at least Paine has some black on her.

What is this, Hocus Pocus and everyone is Sarah Jessica Parker? Or worse yet, part jesters? Once again, Yuna is winning (probably by default). No weird stomach cutouts and no tacky knee highs. Earrings go on your ears, Paine. I can’t decide what’s worse, Paine’s dumb pants or the ugly knee highs on Rikku. I think the knee highs.

Scores Yuna Paine Rikku

Jillian

What’s with the tiered straps they’re all wearing in different locations? It’s either a hip-hugger, shredded skirt, or waist-cincher, but not all three. I actually like Paine’s thigh-high bellbottoms, although it looks like they’re nailed into her legs to stay up. She wins for being the only girl that can probably move in her outfit; Rikku’s legs look glued together and Yuna’s going to trip after one step.

Gotta agree on ladies. Sexy yet tasteful from hair to boots. I can’t handle the gents’ neon purple family crest cape.

Ladies. I’m pretty sure his pointy cape would look wilted/floppy in real life. Terrible choice of color for it, too. I like her excessive use of feathers.

These get more offensive the longer you look at them. Agree with Erin on Rikku’s birdness–even she looks confused by this outfit. Paine is all over the place with perma-popped collar, bra peek, and what appears to be thigh-high stockings that match her white shorts perfectly? Yuna’s dress actually looks wearable, love the short ruffle detailing and layered skirts, plus super comfy boots.
