BACK TO THE BLACK MOON'S ANIME EXPO PAGE

This odd looking fellow is Vivi the Black Mage, from the Final Fantasy IX game. There were many fans of the Final Fantasy game series in attendance, with a good number of them coming in full costume. The wonderful thing about the Vivi costume was that the eyes actually glowed!

Somehow the maker of the costume had figured out a way to feed the "eyes" with an electric current, and believe me, the effect was amazing! I also saw quite a few fans dressed as Squall Leonhart, the lead character from the Final Fantasy 8 game.
