This is one of two posts on discussing outfits outside of my top twenty Ranka outfits. Many of these could have been in the top twenty (especially Ranka’s white school uniform) but since it’s all just for fun I liked separating it like this. This post covers new stuff in 2012, Sheryl’s best and fan created outfits.
New outfits in 2012
I think its pretty nice that even though the show is over and has been over for a while now they are still pumping out stuff for us fans. Sure it’s for sucking our money away from us but I don’t mind if it’s Ranka. I imagine its going to stop though when the next Macross project comes out later this year(?) so I will enjoy it for as long as I can.
Ranka would be great working in the military! Pretty hard to find a decent scan of this outfit though.
I think this is her best outfit in 2012 if not since the movie ended and I would probably put it in my top 10 if I was going to rank it. It was used for the new years Macross F celebration as well as the 30th anniversary event held very recently in which they made a life-sized statue from it (pictured above). Cute stuff like this just fits Ranka like a glove.
Sheryl’s top 5 outfits
I really did want to put more stuff about Sheryl in all these blog posts but honestly I am just not interested her outfits. Many of them I feel like they tried too hard to sell her although most I just don’t feel anything for so it would be impossible for me to discuss or otherwise rank. I think the reason is I just don’t find outfits as interesting on a character designed to be sexy rather than cute. Anyways here are five outfits I do like!
This was used in the Nyankuri music clip collection for Diamond Crevasse. A very pretty dress indeed, improvement over the one that is used in her Diamond Crevasse concert in the TV series. Partly since her hair is not blue here.
The only good outfit they made for Sheryl in Sayonara no Tsubasa and it was still completely out classed by Ranka’s outfit here in my opinion. I know I am biased about that and I’m not that I am trying to take anything away from it I think its great.
This one was used in the final battle for Macross F in the TV series. I think it’s one of the few I like enough to want to buy a figure of her in it. It just suits her perfectly to me. I like that it doesn’t feel too over flashy but it’s still very cute and sexy.
Best fan created outfits
Ranking the best fan made Ranka outfits was almost impossible. There are so many out there and the quality of the image played some importance too unlike the other categories. In the end I am not really satisfied with having a true top 10 and I’m sure I missed many good ones out there but here is the best of what I found.
What better number one outfit is there than a wedding dress for mai waifu. So there are actually 3 or 4 Ranka wedding dresses out there that fans have created that are just amazing, I picked my favorite for number one to keep the top ten list from being nothing but a favorite wedding dress list. Not much more needed to say about this one, just amazing. Macross F fans can draw some great things.
Since fan made stuff can be nearly limitless and there is thousands of drawings out there if you have a favorite please share with us.
