On way to distant worlds



Costume Information

I absolutely love Garnet and i've always wanted this dress. I'll be buying a petticoat and building the dress around it as i hate patterns xD.

Other reason i'm doing this is because J-Po has yelled at me and is making me cosplay Garnet lol xD Loves you Jac

Planned for distant worlds, if I get it done in time is a different story xD x.

Bought 8 metres of white cotton today (yes i've chosen cotton, that's because i don't want it to be shiny and cotton is easier to embroid xD) so i guess i'll be putting this in progress now! =D x.

Complete! I didn't have time to do the armour or waist bit. I did do the crown but it kept falling off and i wasn't really happy with it so i just left it xD. I will remake this version of garnet one time but not for a while. I had really lovely comments from people as well and i got to meet nobuo in this dress so it's all good!! =D x.

Skirt - Upper Layer (0%)HighPlanned
Wig (100%)MediumComplete
Armwarmers (0%)MediumPlanned
Crown (10%)LowIn Progress
Necklace (0%)LowPlanned


Dress complete (Posted 2nd November 2011)

I completed the dress last night but wasn't able to do the crown, necklace, armour on the gloves or the waist bit >.< I think i'm going to drop the necklace and -maybe- even the crown and get all of these bits done tonight *fingers crossed*

Challenge (Posted 1st November 2011)

As i have to go to tamworth tomorrow straight after work i have set myself a challenge to complete this cosplay tonight!! I still have to make the upper layer of the skirt and paint all the rest of the leaf detail on, make the waist bit, the armour on the top of the sleeves, the crown, the necklace and the new hair slide. All of this needs to be done tonight so i have from 6:30pm - 12:00pm, WISH ME LUCK!! =D x.

Started finally! (Posted 16th October 2011)

Because of having so much work left to do with the galbadia uniforms it's been hard to find time to work on this xD But i have finally started on the armwarmers and the corset top. Due to not having much time i'll be painting the leaf design on instead of embroidering (which i will be doing when i do my version 2), I'm obviously nearly finished with the wig and i still need to make the hair clip and crown. I'm not yet sure if i'm going to have armour on the sleeves because i really don't know if i'll have the time =/ but we shall see. This will not be the best thing since sliced bread or anything xD Just for your information
