Princess Garnet

Final Fantasy IX

Last Updated: 10-14-2010

In February I bought a white gown for a social I was attending. After the social was over, I decided to convert the gown into a costume. I made the necessary alterations, which were basically cutting excess tulle off the bottom of the gown. I took a large piece of white satin material—left over from a previous costume—and sewed a green braided lining onto the edge. I measured the gown and then proceeded to sew the satin material onto it—this would become the overskirt of the gown, and provide the required princess waistline. Next, to produce the green vine and leaves, I took a green fabric marker and drew the leaves onto the bodice of the skirt and onto the overskirt. For this task I used a pattern I printed out myself. To produce the gold lining, I purchased a threaded gold liner and sewed it onto the gown.
For the gloves, I decided to take some liberties, and changed their design slightly. Instead of there only being small leaves on the bottoms of the gloves, near the fingers, they instead creep up the length of the gloves, matching the effect on the gown. Faux gold rhinestones are glued onto the sides, and strings of pearls are sewn on either side of the rhinestones.
Due to the complexity and time-consuming tasks required of Garnet’s elaborate crown, I decided to modify it slightly. The crown I used was actually utilized for another costume a few years ago. A green faux rhinestone is glued onto the crown, and five green glass beads dangle from green thread. A string of pearls also decorates the back of the crown.
The green necklace was purchased at a variety store, and represents the royal jewel Garnet inherits. The white slippers are also used from another costume.
