Final Fantasy IX- Princess Garnet by VandorWolf Final Fantasy IX- Princess Garnet by VandorWolf
This photo is old. I cosplayed Princess Garnet back in 2009 and it was definitely a challenge. I had never done any sort of embroidery or detailing like that before. Nor had I ever sewn a dress like this. I spent four days doing the detailing alone and my hands were so cramped up by the end of it. Looking back at this costume now, I hate it lol But I was so proud of the effort I had put into it and considering that I was just learning to sew, I was happy with the results. I've had a new version of this costume for almost a year, but haven't gotten any photos in the new version yet. Hopefully soon! Until I do, enjoy this skeleton in my cosplay closet XD

Wow, You make such a pretty Garnet! <3 And while you're not completely happy with the costume now, I think it's so great considering you were just learning to sew when you put it together! I really do love all of the detailing that you put into the dress. too, definitely alot of work.

How/ where did you learn to embroider? I want to do it for a future cosplay.

:iconvandorwolf:
VandorWolf Featured By Owner Jan 6, 2013
I taught myself. I had no idea what I was doing XD I drew on the design with pencil then went over that with my machine. Make sure you give yourself a lot of time when you do it!
