Aeris lives (and dies) again in painfully realistic recreation of iconic FF7 scene

Why? Why would you do this to me, Sarah Quillian Scott? It took 18 years for the hole in my heart from watching Aeris die to heal, and now you go and bring back those memories with your beautiful cosplay that, in a show of supreme dedication, features shots of you slipping into a watery grave. It's too much, I tell you!

Okay, in all seriousness, this scene of Aeris' death is not only supremely realized thanks to wonderful costumes and lighting, but Quillian is also selling prints for a mere $10. Morbid as the subject matter may be, the photos are also beautiful and worth considering if you're an avid Final Fantasy 7 fan. If nothing else, maybe they'll help tide you over until we get more information on the Final Fantasy 7 remake.
