Information

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

Hannah-Kiwii posted on 13 June, 2010 - 14:05
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

J-Po posted on 13 June, 2010 - 15:40

I really like this Dagger/Garnet--the air racket especially is awesome!

J-Po posted on 19 September, 2010 - 14:19
yey someone likes my racket had to cut apart our chairs to get the leather lol well we were going to through it anyway and thank yoooou

Amy-Lou posted on 20 September, 2010 - 14:04
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 :)

J-Po posted on 21 September, 2010 - 09:03
omg i love you tehehehe you got mythoughts exactly a costume that changes in lights and making it my own :D :D
