Cosplay model Liz Katz was back to doing what she does best on Tuesday, posting a new picture to her Instagram account and showcasing an outfit dedicated to a well-known character. For her most recent update, she dressed up as Tifa Lockhart from Final Fantasy VII. The snap seemed to get her more than 1.2 million followers fired up.
In the photo, Katz appeared to be posing in the comfort of her own living room, based on the furniture that could be seen in the background. She posed at the forefront of the shot, bending over with her hands on her knees and staring seductively into the camera. She gave her followers a good look at her ample cleavage, which was accentuated by her low-cut white t-shirt and the black straps that framed it.
She wore her blond hair — which was just slightly colored with light pink highlights — down and parted in the middle, the locks resting on her shoulders. The post showed a glimpse of the anime-themed tattoo the model is well known for among her fans. Katz covered both her forearms with black sleeves and sported some red and white leather fingerless gloves and wristlets. Those accessories helped her look more like Lockhart, one of the main characters of Final Fantasy VII.
Dedicated fans of the long-running series know Lockhart is a strong-willed woman who runs a bar in the slums of Midgar by day and is a freedom fighter for the group Avalanche by night. She is a central player in the fight against the game’s main villain, Sephiroth.
Because of her strong-willed nature, players fell in love with Lockhart and it appears Katz shares that affection. In order to complete the look, the model wore short black shorts that were nearly identical to the ones the iconic character sports. For the caption, the cosplayer payed homage to the character’s story.
Six hours after posting the picture, Katz got more than 50,000 likes. Many of her followers took to the comments section as well, voicing their appreciation for the new outfit.
“This is what the daughter of Tifa and Cloud [the main protagonist of Final Fantasy VII] would look like. Good genes,” one fan gushed, while including a number of emojis to show their excitement.
“Curious what blue dress Tifa would look like on u,” another wrote, referencing a separate look Lockhart is known for in the games.
“Your Tifa cosplays have always been my favorite next to your Tomb Raider’s,” admired a third user.
