update :

will be wearing friday night at fox bar so not in the day time guys :P but you may see a drunk garnet XD

OMG i got a critique on my garnet costume to the singing pic
this is what was said

Critique by * 2 days, 4 hours ago
This is perhaps one of the greatest Garnet cosplays I've seen. It shows so much of her in depth and how she was in the game. It is a spot on costume with the right sort of figure to fit the Princess herself.

The photograph is clear cut and a good angle concerning the pose. However it may have been improved if it were more from Dagger's point of view. This way it may be that the viewer could get more of an insight into her world and troubles if they're familiar with the game.

The only thing I have to fault with this photo is the location, granted this could be the best of a bad situation. But it takes away the impact of the photo which the cosplayer has a hard time bringing attention back to. It would be a more tranquil scene if the location were different but as I stated, it could be that there isn't a more ideal place for such photography around that area.

In the end its the location which lets this photo down, not the technique of the photographer or the accuracy of the cosplay, because both of those can be attributed to being great.



im just so over the moon right now :D

BabemRoze posted on 21 November, 2010 - 00:21
I'd say it's a nice lightish orange :3 but not too light. I can't wait to see this bubba! ^^

FusionRose posted on 21 November, 2010 - 00:22
I don't know what colour to go with coz it's different colours in so many different bits of the game xD I'd say go for the shade that you can find the easiest lol x.

J-Po posted on 21 November, 2010 - 00:32
arrrughhh this is what happened last time and i went whatever gold lmao ive just been on ebay for ideas an found something then i realised the shop is just down the road lmao so i think monday im going hunting for the right colour lmao

MattDark posted on 4 May, 2011 - 22:34
Actually, that works out really well if you are wearing it on the friday, as thats the only full-day that im there. So if you do wear it then, I'll certainly look out for you! :D And dont mention it. I just try and call it as I see it, and I think that this is a great costume, and you really pull it off :D

J-Po posted on 4 May, 2011 - 23:12

how to make a puff sleeve (Posted 8th February 2011)

i was asked by a fellow cosplayer how to make a puffy sleeve well here is my video tutorial :D http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=c1HWxzU9daQ

tempted (Posted 1st February 2011)

well i posted up an image on DA and a comment said think about the cloak.... so ive thought about the cloak i now want the cloak lol so if i have any extra time it will be made :D but may not be made lol

final stretch (Posted 31st January 2011)

ok bits needto be fixed ,
*the bust needs tightening cos it keeps showing my bra
*the hair clip
*i need to make some cuffs cos the arms keep riding up
*the wig i hate wigs now lol
*black neck choker as ive lost my last one :(

youtube entry (Posted 13th January 2011)

i felt like doing a blog about how i made my garnet outfit, i do mention press-studs on the front of the costumes i meant to say riglet studs :( im so silly its in the video bit of this make :D

sooo (Posted 3rd January 2011)

well i was really hoping to have started this by now, but i was pulled down with this awful viral infection so work came to a hault also my material shop isnt open for another week all i need to get is the right materials an cotton then ill get it done quick smart

:D (Posted 27th November 2010)

woot i get 2 days off next week so a trip to the material store and start of on the top. im not sure wether to remake a top or make the seperate things and attach it to the cat suit decisions only thing im not looking forward to are the eyelets they were horrible on the last outfit

the colour the suit (Posted 22nd November 2010)

okay so im taking the easy route this time, last time i really did make it from scratch an that was really really hard graft.

this time im editing so yea, went on ebay and wasnt sure about what the colours would look like in real life, low an behold one place is like round the corner from me, i went they had it in stock and this is the colour ive gone for burnt orange is what they called it i just cann it orange lol

hmmm (Posted 19th November 2010)

in the near future not so near lol i will be trying on this garment to see if it still fits, i remebered that some of the press studs were loose so they will need to be re-stitched hmm the top bust part was a bit small i could remake it for like the 3rd time but it might just do. the pendant still works :D so yea the only thing is the shoes i may need to invest in some with less of a heel but my legs look good in these heels. pain or cosplay lol
