Cosplayer Shows the Fancy Side of FF7 With Aerith’s Wall Market Dress

April 19, 2022

UK-based cosplayer aequorinn draws all the attention in her stunning deep red recreation of Aerith’s Wall Market Dress.

As a remake of a beloved PS1 game, the award-winning Final Fantasy 7 Remake has sold millions of copies worldwide since its release in April 2020. Of course, its heartrending story and cast of iconic characters have spawned a passionate community of players.

FF7‘s community is well-known for its incredible cosplayers, who bring the game’s characters to life in stunning detail. While many cosplayers show off impeccable craft and photography, few look near exactly like the character they’re cosplaying. Here, UK-Based cosplayer aequorinn is an Aerith look-a-like, stunning in a beautiful rendition of her fancy Wall Market Dress.



aequorinn is a 22-year-old cosplayer hailing from the UK who specializes in cosplaying video game characters. As a big fan of JRPGs, she’s stepped into the shoes of characters ranging from Fire Emblem‘s Byleth to FF7‘s Cloud Strife.

Recently, she shared her version of Aerith’s gorgeous Wall Market Dress on the r/gaming subreddit. Overall, the dress took her over a month to construct, from the cascading ruffles to the flowery bodice. The multidimensional fabric adds depth to an already intricate look, resulting in a gown fit for a heroine. Additionally, she styled the wig herself, using a combination of heat, teasing brushes, and a lot of stronghold hairspray. Despite all the materials needed to carefully craft the hairstyle, the hair still falls in pretty, soft waves.

The Wall Market Dress is a clothing option found in the Wall Market chapter of the Final Fantasy 7 Remake, where you accompany Aerith on a mission to infiltrate Don Corneo’s mansion. One of three dresses, Aerith’s Wall Market look is dependent on the number of side quests the player completes – the more quests finished, the fancier Aerith’s look gets.

This deep red gown is the most elegant look, decidedly more dramatic and fancy than the other three dresses. While not difficult to get, it does require the player to complete six side quests to get this lavish look. That being said, it’s entirely worth it to get a glimpse of this gorgeous design.

Final Fantasy 7 Remake is available to play on PS4, PS5, and PC.
