—In-Game "Help" Description.
The Festivalist(お祭り士, Omatsuri-shi?) is a dressphere in the International and HD Remaster versions of Final Fantasy X-2. Before the release of the HD remake, the Festivalist was also known by the fan-translated term Festival-Goer. It is based on a design sent in by an eight-year-old fan for Square Enix's dress designing competition advertised in Final Fantasy X-2 Ultimania. The dressphere is acquired in the beginning of the game, on board the Celsius, when Yuna talks to Brother.
Each girl wears festive Japanese-style clothing, and has a pair of weapons, one used for regular attacks and the other for unique abilities (unique abilities are named after the weapon used for it).
Yuna wears a long light pink yukata with dark peach circle, heart, and triangle designs as well as white moogle designs. Her obi is white with green hearts, red and blue circles, blue lines and a single large red heart. Her sandals are black and pink. She wears two silver and red temari on each wrist, which she uses for regular attacks and can deal two attacks at once. For her special attacks she uses her sandals; she kicks them off and they explode releasing a spell. Her fireworks color is pink.
Rikku wears a light blue kimono top with darker blue circle designs as well as black and white Cait Sith designs. It is fastened by a blue ribbon bow and her sleeves are attached using red thread. She wears light blue shorts with darker blue circle designs and pink heart designs. She wears light blue sandals. Her orange goldfish are held in a clear bag tied with a yellow bow and a blue ribbon and the cotton candy is white. She uses cotton candy for regular attacks. For special attacks, she uses the goldfish by letting it out its plastic bag to attack the enemy. The goldfish change color depending on the attack chosen. Her fireworks color is green.
Paine wears an open short-sleeved blue happi with pink lining and white spiral designs, as well as a tonberry design on the back. Under the happi she wears a white bandage-like top. The happi is tied around her waist with a white ribbon bow. She wears tight, blue shorts and white tabi, a pink and white headband and a black choker necklace. She has a yellow chocobo mask on the right side on her head. Her fan is blue with pink line designs as well as a large red and white circle design. She uses the giant fan for regular attacks. For special attacks, she uses her mask, which she throws like a disc. Her fireworks color is indigo.
Yuna's abilities are unique in that the specific ability chosen is random, dependent on how the sandal she kicks off lands: the sandal landing face-up corresponds to the lowest level spell, face-down to the middle level spell, on its side to a high level spell, and on its heel to the highest level spell. The lower level spells are more common, and the highest level spell is very rare. For Fire Sandals, the spells are Fire, Fira, Firaga, and Firaga 2. For Ice Sandals, the spells are Blizzard, Blizzara, Blizzaga, and Blizzaga 2. For Lightning Sandals, the spells are Thunder, Thundara, Thundaga, and Thundaga 2. For Water Sandals, the spells are Water, Watera, Waterga, and Waterga 2. For Flare Sandals, the spells are Sleep, Berserk, Break, and Flare. For Ultima Sandals, the spells are Silence, Blind, Death, and Ultima.
The Festivalist dressphere returns and multiple copies can be found on the ground inside the tower or bought in shops. It increases Attack, Magic and Accuracy by 1 point per each level. It has a relatively high HP growth. Its regular attack range is one tile ahead of the character.
The dressphere image of the Festivalist is the fan Paine uses to attack.
The last firework that explodes when the girls transform into this dressphere resembles that girl's Mascot outfit: Yuna's moogle, Rikku's Cait Sith, or Paine's tonberry.
Paine is the only one not wearing shoes but tabi, Japanese socks mostly worn while wearing traditional kimonos or pre-modern times. Unlike modern socks, the wearer's big toe is in its own section and the other four share one.
