Its been a while since I last wrote a feature for this column, I hope this is worth the wait. Here we're combining two of my favorites, one of my favorite cosplayers, "Marie Doll" Maria Ramos, and one of my all-time favorite video game characters, Tifa Lockheart from Final Fantasy 7. The pairing of the beloved Final Fantasy heroine and the increasingly popular local model was an obvious choice. Within seconds of posting her newest cosplay photos, courtesy of Matt Trevino, Maria's fans flocked all over them.
You can view the pictures for yourself in the slideshow above, as well as Maria's other cosplay photos on her website.
