12 Shiva Cosplays

Shiva has made an appearance in almost every Final Fantasy game. We featured the sisters Nix and Stiria in our Geeks on Wheels post and I’m still impressed with those cosplayers. Yes, they do become the Shiva cycle! Today we’re covering her more common summoned look, the Ice Queen, with her massive blue dreadlocks. I love this look, and it’s a really hard cosplay to pull off! That is an enormous wig and the brave cosplayers below would probably all say the same thing… it’s not easy to wear!
unveil_the_summon_by_z_a_h_r_a-d5nvmgh Z-a-H-r-A spent about 40 hours creating her Shiva wig. It weighs about 10 pounds and is made completely out of yarn. Wow! Hit the link to see more shots of this cosplay. I love her attention to detail, and that icy background!

the_goddess_rises_by_gerodere-d5and2a Honestly, I can’t pick my favorite part of Gerodere’s Shiva cosplay. Look at the almost pearl like quality to her blue body paint, the ice on her face and chest, and her gorgeous Shiva wig.

BONUS! Gerodere was amazingly cool and posted a Shiva wig tutorial! If you’re interested, you can find it here!

shiva_blizzaga_by_urbanballerinaesq-d39di7l Christina Rose has the most gorgeous blue skin in this light. Hit her link and check out her Shiva album for a really detailed description of how she pulled this off and take a second to check out her Facebook page for more of her work. She posts lots of fun wips but it’s the cosplay photos that are the real treasure. It’s a fantastic, over the top cosplay collection!

  • I think part of my weakness for 1940s hair is how *neat and pretty* it is at the same time as it's *securely stowed.* Pin these styles well enough (and maybe even pomade them a little, I don't know), and you don't have to be terrified of wind. You can go on about your business without forever worrying about your hair. And that's. ~relieved sigh~ That's worth somethin'.

  • I hate victory rolls, beehives, and a lot of pin-up hair styles for this day and age, but some of these are JUST low-key enough to be used on occasion

  • If you don't have bobby pins, try it with two hair ties. Start by pulling the back half of your hair into a high ponytail using one tie. Then, pull the rest of your hair into a larger ponytail around the first. This will give you the height and pop you are looking for!
