Tifa Lockhart is a fictional character in Square’s role-playing video game Final Fantasy VII. Created and designed by Tetsuya Nomura, she has since appeared in the fighting game Ehrgeiz and made cameo appearance in several other titles.
As a member of the eco-terrorist group Avalanche and owner of the 7th Heaven bar in the slums of Midgar, Tifa is the childhood friend of Cloud Strife, the protagonist of the Final Fantasy VII, convincing him to join the group to keep him close and safe. She later assists him in saving the Planet from the games villain, Sephiroth. Named the pin-up girl of the “cyber generation” by The New York Times, Tifa has been compared to Lara Croft as an example of a strong, independent and attractive female character in video games. Media have repeatedly praised both the character’s strength and appearance and described her as one of the best female characters in gaming.
When developing Final Fantasy VII: Advent Children, co-director Takeshi Nozue had difficulty developing a framework for Tifa’s body that was “balanced, yet showed off her feminine qualities.” Her outfit was also redesigned at this point, with emphasis on expressing those qualities, while still being pleasing to the eye. A white tank top with black zipped up vest covers her front, a pink ribbon wraps around her left biceps, and boots cover her feet. A black buttoned-up skirt covers her thighs, and she wears shorts beneath, with a piece of cloth similar to a coattail extending from the back of the skirt’s waistband and ending at her ankles. While her gloves remain, they are worn only during the film’s fight scenes. Her hairstyle was changed to end at the middle of her back, with the removal of the dolphin tail from her original design. This alteration was because of the difficulty of animating her original length of hair, as well as problems that arose due to its black color and lighting. Tifa is a very cool woman. I have describe her outfit above clearly, and cosplay fans can do as it!
