Garnet Til Alexandros XVII/Dagger/Sarah
Final Fantasy IX

Cosplayer: letmelive

Variant: Orange jumpsuit with long hair

Status: In Progress

Condition: Not Set

This costume has not been worn at any events yet.

17th July 2010: Gloveees Just finished them yey! Progress pictures will be up tomorrow ^___^ so proud with how they've turned out like

9th July 2010: Boots progress My God the boots I bought are terrible quality, I managed to get the loop strap off no problem. It's left some little sewing marks but there un-noticeable if your not close up but the strap itself. The idiot's in the factory who makes the boots glued the strap down near the top so when I pulled it open it also brought some of the paint off. ¬___¬ And when I cut the strap off I couldn't cut it down to the root so it looks like a mess! I am thinking of buying red paint to colour the white bits and I think it will look ok!

31st March 2010: Zentai suit I think im gonna go ahead and get one XD

21st February 2010: 21.2.10 Found some perfect belts to be used for the legs of the suit, only problem buckles aren't silver so will need to paint them or w.e

So now I basically have all the small bits and pieces to get altered altogether, so hopefully after hair extensions this might happen sooner than I thought.

11th January 2010: 11.01.10 Recieved jewel today and it's so pretty :3, might wait till Friday to send the stuff off exictedddd

6th January 2010: Gloves Found the perfect pair of gloves, with one strap and buckle added already :D

So to make sure there the same, I'm going to buy two pairs so I can cut then sew onto the other pair... £20 but its worth it, to get it perfecto!

I don't know when I will buying these because I owe my bf money for FFIX figures ahah, so probably 3 weeks time?

2nd January 2010: 02.01.10 Bought the Garnet figure from the new FF Play Arts line, that just came out as a refrence ;D

Nahh I collect them ahah, if you look on my Mei Ling photos you'll be able to see all my pretties. But this means I don't have as much money for jumpsuit to get altered... ahaha


25th December 2009: 24.12.09 Christmas eve and I've treat myself ;D

Bought the jewel, bought the biggest one you can as most people get one size lower. I've seen other people who've made the falcon claw with the biggest jewel and it looks so pretty :3 Dementedkid also said she would gladly help me make the rest, as I suck at it! So I'm dead exicted, just wait till after xmas :3

I'm going to alter the size of it while the wig and necklace gets done, maybe shoes too.

7th December 2009: 07.12.09 I am planning to get this sorted after Christmas, I have emailed the commissioner who is sorting out my Aeris bangles/ribbon and they gave me a good price for the wig styled. So saving up for that! Also found perfect jewel/crystal on ebay, she also kindly said she'd make the rest of the necklace :3 So that will be happening.

While thats getting made I will go get my jumpsuit sorted out along with aeris things at the alteration shop. I know theres still alot of work to be done, but I want it to look perfect. Finding it hard to find the white buckle parts for the pants part T__T So can anyone help or give ideas?

8th September 2009: 08.09.09 Bought orange fabric today, its not 100% the same but I don't think its that much difference. I'm hoping when I get it altered you won't be able to tell lol ^_^

5th September 2009: Boots arrived And there so prettyful, I really don't want to cut the straps off T___T

But it is for my Garnet, also been playing Dissdia! Zidane sorta mentions Garnet <33


2nd September 2009: Finally some progress Finally bought the boots which are with the photos ^___^

Fabric maybe this week, if my Grandpops want to be nice and take me there ;p

YEY I'm getting exicted lol

People say it's the worst!? LIES! The only people I know who say it's the worst are the ones who dont believe there's any others other then FF7 XO

FF9 is my absolute fave~ I sersiously look forward to this and hope you are going to London Expo October with it XD *Will be Kuja*

I love the wig~

Thanks so much! I know what you mean, I'm a total FFVII nerd but yeah I love all the FF's for different reasons ahaahah >_<

My bf encouraged me to do Garnet, as FFXI is his favourite ^^

I would love to come to London Expo, but I doubt I will, money is tight and I live so far away! Well not that far but train fair's and then hotels, seems alot! I'm definatly going to come one year though so you never know n_n

letmelive avatar

letmelive - 28th August 2009

The boots look pretty accurate to me =D
I know what you mean about the heal, and I'm with you all the way. The heal on my Garnet boots is horrible, and I always end up doing loads of walking at cons...tripping over is easy enough for my in flats!

But yeah, the boots are good.

letmelive avatar

letmelive - 30th August 2009
Thank you ^__^

I think I am gonna go with them because I know you can't get any characters 100% the same unless you make them ahah!

Thank you again!!
