Description
This is the white dress that princess garnet wears at the end of final fantasy IX. Absolutly love this outfit - its so big and fun to wear. The accesories need some work but the dress itself is fully finished.

Even though I love this outfit, I couldn't believe how many hours I spent embrodering the leaves into it. But I'm glad they are finished.

Easiest Part - making the skirt shape - just used lots of squares.

Hardest Part - well the embrodery was the most boring but the headdress was the hardest - originally used fimo but this was too heavy and broke - have now tried foam and silver spray paint but I don't think it looks as shiny as it could.

Planning to get a wig forit at some point

Update: 5/10/2010
Have invested in a wig for this cosplay at long last in order to rewear it. Shall also be making the necklace she wears in the opening cut scene.
Will upload wig photos once it arrives :)(wig cost £23 off ebay :) )
