Garnet Til Alexandros XVII - Final Fantasy IX

In Progress

Amecon 2018


 


Final Fantasy 9 is easily my favouritist game of all time and I absolutely adore Zidane and Dagger <3 I squeal internally every time I see other cosplayers together and cutesy fanarts to this day! I just adore them both!!!!

Like many others, not only do I dread wearing orange, but also there are so many other amazing Garnet cosplayers out there so although this was a dream for me I was quite intimidated by all that. Also I had promised myself to never do this character unless I have a partner to go all mushy with <3 Now I have a ton of exp making bodysuits, being cosplaying long enough to stop caring about how I compare to others, got the guy and generally gutsy enough to make such a costume I decided to just go for it!

Hitting my 10 year convention anniversary I jumbled my plans around to hopefully get this ready for Amecon. I would have LOVED LOVED LOVED to do her big dress but maybe that can wait a little until I get enough patience to do all the embroidery (I keep putting Terra off as I found that is something I am lacking a little :'D )

To achieve the ruffle effect on the chest I basically made an elasticated tubetop. The rest will be sewn around it.
