Costume Information

General
Cost : a lot
Awards : London May Expo Expert category entry
Time Taken : 3 month

Description
This costume was created in gold just because I thought a queen would go for gold, i know i would :P plus i had a lot of toing and froing yellow orange...yellow gahh
how was it made:
with a lot of blood and tears lol


after flack i got for this, it only goes on for requests currently pictures are being composed as me as garnet in this gold outfit by a talented artist, because he asked very politely to use my pics. mmmmm i really enjoyed making it from scratch and i mean scratch no body suits or anything and 5 meters of gold fabric. this will always be a treasured costume so it will never be sold :D mine all mine lol




april 2011
after going to kitacon i found out that my outfit was actually entered into the expert category of the masqurade at london i really didnt know this. so it basically means it was good enough to be judged to enter the euro cosplay and as it was my first fully made costume im so chuffed and really cant believe it.


i think now im not afraid to make body suits from scratch if they thought it was good enough to be in EXPERT then i feel confident to make another one :D :D :D :D :D :D :D

awww thank you yea me and my mate was up all hours trying to figure out how to do it, hopefully ill find the place i put it and take a few pics :D

by J-Po on Sunday, 13 June, 2010 - 00:10

I was a bit unsure about your choice of colour when i first saw the photos, but not all of us want to wear bright orange, and as you said, gold IS a lot more princessy. So well done you for doing something different =D It looks good.

Either way, this is a really well made cosplay and you look great =) Well done =D

This is fantastic, all the the thought that went into it with the shining pendant and racket as well!
The gold suit works really well. It still looks orangy/yellow in certain lighting, but that bit more special in others; keeping to the theme, but making it your own :)
