It’s time to reveal the winners of our Lightning Returns: Final Fantasy XIII outfit designing competition! We received lots of amazing artwork from the fans and I was truly impressed how much effort you guys put on these outfits. Thank you all who participated to this competition!
Due to due to high quality and passion of artworks choosing the winners was very challenging. To me you all were the winners and I would have sent you all something if I only had . The least I can give you is my gratitude and big respect. You all are stars. But like in any competition, there can be only a few winners and this time we have two of ’em.
Choosing of the winners: In this competition the visual talent didn’t play most important role but the idea of outfit itself did. I also tried to see how the outfit would look on Lightning in the game. Choosing the winners was very demanding but I finally after week of thinking came up with a decision. Here are the results:
An agile and easy to wear outfit created for the most expert soldiers in Luxerion, perfect for moving on the most challenging environments.
The inside of its jacket is covered with comfy Niblet fur, (fur ball monster in LR:FFXIII) but its special design doesn’t make it too hot or cold. The wearer will always feel comfortable.
Note: The scarf tied on lightning’s left arm is a ragged piece of its guardian corps cape, that reminds her of its origins as a soldier.
Locked Ability: “Evade”
Passive Ability: “The Right Method” every time you successfully evade an attack, you recover some ATB.”
WHY? When I saw these outfits, I immediately fell in love with the style and art direction both designers had chosen. The great amount of visual details and description met the requirements of this competition. To me, both outfits looked like something Lightning would wear. It fits her personality. The garbs also combine cool elements from futuristic and punk looks, which I am very fond of. That’s how they fought their ways to the top of this competition and become the winners.
Other outfits will also receive attention later this week but we will reveal more about that project later on. Thank you all once again for participating in this competition.
