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!
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!

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!
There are a lot of details packed into Shiva-Iceprincess’s cosplay. I love the beaded fractal ice pattern on her bodice. If you want to see more of her work (And you should!) check out her Facebook page here.

Oh so blue! This is the lovely Alvyan, and her Shiva cosplay. Notice the touches of pink and the frosty blue lips and brows.

This is Catherine Elefanio, and I love her frosty Shiva cosplay. Look at that silver dusted skin and those eyes! Wow! This photo was posted to DA by Kageshoujo. Shiva was part of her Final Fantasy cosplay group!

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!

Wow. Just, wow. This is Yurai-cosplay, and every single detail of her Shiva cosplay draws your eye. Look closely to see the embellished bodysuit, the manicure, the perfect makeup, and the multicolored dreads.

Olimpia Shiva didn’t just create her Shiva cosplay, she made that massive Molboro as well! That’s impressive! Hit the link to see more photos like this in her cosplay album. I love the little eyeballs on Molboro! You can also find her on Facebook and trust me, she’s worth a look!

This is jj-dreamworldz, and she’s literally covered in icy blue! From the icy eyes to the Shiva manicure, she’s completely encased in frost. See the “ice” shards on her bra top and necklace? This is beautiful!
