Garnet (Amano) - Final Fantasy 9

In Progress


What can I say? It's Amano!

I was going to do normal Garnet with her white mage cloak but when I typed her in google I came across the Amano version and just HAD to do it! I've already thought out fabric and know exactly what wig I am going to get for her. Hopefully we'll have a wee group going as some of my friends are joining me :D So excited~

The fabric I had picked for her will cost me a small arm n a leg, so first the other cosplays that are easier n cheaper and then back to Amano Garnet

I don't think the Amano vs has this but I'll put it here for now as it is purdy and for Garnet. I spent ages online looking for a suncatcher for her necklace and tbh it wasn't going to be cheap... So as I was walking around the International Market today I found the largest one they produce and like half the price! I was extatic :D so I bought it... Lol!

Re-learning how to do embroidery.

Well because after a specific time I can't use any sewing machinery I decided I'd work on my embroidery for Garnet. So I did a wee mock sketch on my really old Namine dress and got some thread n started to hand sew. It also helped me calculate how long it may take me to do the whole of Garnets top and trousers and I sadfaced xD but hey I'll just have to put a movie or 8 on in the BG when that time comes. Hopefully my practice isn't too awful! XD also it isn't the best image and due to the wefts of cottondrill it was a bit of a pain!
