Dream Zanarkands have terrible fashion sense. Take a look at Tidus: overalls, a tight yellow sweat-jacket, and one pant leg longer than the other? Why? His fashion sense is terrible and odd, but this is because he’s 2000 years from the past. Future fashion is a bit more subdued.
Of course, we have some strange designs in future Spira. Wakka wears blue and yellow baggy trousers gathered above the ankle with open sandals. Perhaps this is because Spirans desire a bit of normalcy, and don’t care outlandish things. They don’t have the luxury to have a crazy sense of fashion.
But this doesn’t explain this lady from the Besaid House.
Seriously. What is she wearing?
She has a bikini top, nothing out of the ordinary there for an islander. But why would she need to wear arm sleeves? Is she cold? Why would she, or anyone for that matter, wear just arm sleeves? Quistis and Rinoa from Final Fantasy VIII wear arm sleeves, but it isn’t clear why. I guess arm sleeves bring the rest of their clothing together. Well, the bikini top would suffice, but her arm sleeves match the bottom half of the dress…
The bottom half of the dress doesn’t cover her bottom half. Why? Why would it just randomly expose her cheeks? It’s not that the dress is slipping from her waist; it hangs low naturally. So then, either someone couldn’t sew properly or this lady wanted this dress. She wanted her cheeks exposed.
Even stranger is that the skirt doesn’t cover anything but her legs. That’s right, the vertical banner with bikini strings covers her crack. And her flap isn’t apart of the dress, so it’s possible to lift up. It’s the reverse of a pajama flap.
I’m sure it gets hot in Besaid, as it would on an island. But then, which is it? Is she hot or cold? If she’s hot, does she need the arm sleeves? If she’s cold, wouldn’t she feel a draft down there?
Which is it? Which?
