Princess Garnet til Alexandros XVII
Final Fantasy IX
Last Updated: 07-28-2011
Final fantasy IX was my third final fantasy, Iīve ever finished. (After Crisis Core and final fantasy II.) And I always loved Garnets princess dress... Itīs not too girly, nor too bitchy... Itīs very elegant and pure. I really had to try make it. :3
Well, first I had to buy a hoop skirt. I found one from ebay. It was really good one, and cost about 25 euros... And I can also use it with my future cosplays :3
I used white silk-cotton-like fabric and this dress ate it about 6 meters xD I donīt want to even remember, how much it cost overall... :P At first I wondered to embroider those green leaves... But soon I found out, that it was very troublesome, and I wasnīt pretty good at it xD
So, I decided to simply paint them, And it was soooo much easier. Though my paint-brush sliped few times, and I had to convert dress design a little bit to fix it :,D well, I think it looks pretty good, so I donīt mind...
Jewelry has made of modelin glay, silver spray, and glass diamond. (which was such a pain to find xP)
This costume was also supposed to be my main costume and I also wanted to go to cosplay single contest. But I had very bad luck with me the whole saturday... xP It was raining the whole morning, and water ruined my costume totally (it was all wet and dirty after walking a short trip to Caribia arena, where the contest was supposed to be.) But later I was told, that there was pretty much cosplayers, whose costumes was ruined because of bad weather. Well, at least I wasnīt the only one. :p I also worried about my costume so much, that I forgot my gloves home before we left.(Which was pretty far away, so we couldnīt go back to get them. Thatīs the reason, why I donīt wear my gloves in most of my photos. ><) Gosh, how stupid can one human be... Well. I had a bad morning, but it didnīt ruin my day totally. I had pretty much fun. :3 And now I also understand better, how my dear friend Viveeh must have felt, when she couldnīt go to contest in Tracon V with her awesome Masane cosplay... :p
If you have anything to ask about my costume, please Iīm at your service. Except if itīs about my pretty crown. Silkmonkey made it, so ask her about it :3
