|FF9's one of my favourite games, and I've had my Garnet dress for a few years now, so it was time for a change! |
I decided on her short-haired look since I was fed up with my long wig. I found suitable gloves (actually gardening gloves) and adapted a pair of boots. All the white stitching is painted on. I already had the necklace from my previous Garnet costume, and the black choker is just fabric fastening with velcro at the back.
For the shirt, I bought a lovely white peachskin fabric which drapes beautifully. The sewing was very last-minute and didn't go all that well, but that doesn't matter when not much of the shirt even shows!
For the bodysuit I used Kwik Sew 3273, which only has a back seam. I had a lot of problems finding a nice orange stretch fabric which wasn't fluorescent shiny lycra, and luckily flower_sceptre did me a huge favour and got me the perfect fabric! I tried to copy all the seam lines around the chest and at the back (as best as I could determine them from the references) and spent a ridiculous amount of time studying the fmvs and screenshots to try and figure them out. There's a limit to how close I could get due to the lack of references, but I at least have something resembling hers. Similarly, when it came to the leg straps, I did my best to copy what I could determine from the game.
The white mage coat was a simple extra since all I did was adapt a coat I found on ebay. I converted it to zip up, added the hood, and all the red detail, which is felt. It's not completely accurate, but was a easy (and warm) addition to the costume.
