Debuted at Katsucon 2012! I pulled this costume together in five consecutive weekends. That was pretty stressful... There are things I am definitely going to redo for ACen.

You can find this costume featured in videos on YouTube!

Beautiful dress! May I ask how you got it to be so full looking? I'm having issues with a hoop skirt not being enough for a giant dress, and wanted to know if you used something else.

Isn't she?! :) I'm glad people cosplay this version of her so often, even though you don't see it much in-game!

Beautiful cosplay.

I'm looking at getting a wig a similar color (By the way, I love seeing Garnet with dark brown instead of black. She's dark brown >.>)

I am planning to use it for Princess Azula (Craaaazy version) and I was wondering since you own the color I'm looking at if you would reccomend it for her?

Thank you!! I like her with dark brown hair as well. :)

Hmm. I'd probably go with black for Azula! Her hair doesn't seem too brown to me.

I'm likely going to resolve to dye it a darker brown but especially in the episodes where her hair is jacked up and she's crazy it looks brown to me. Besides, black would look horrible with my complexion. It would look very fake.

How dark does the brown seem in person?

I saw you at Katsucon! I'm so sad I didn't get to come over and tell you how gorgeous your dress was. You were hanging out with my friend Han who was Dagger at the Saturday photoshoot, I believe. Amazing job :heart:

You are so beautiful in that dress!
I saw you dance in it on a few videos from the convention and i'm still in awe from seeing it.
I nearly fell in love. Seriously!
Your dancing looks passionate, fluid, natural.

The dress is just gorgeous, i hope that the spill mentionned in the comments was the worst thing to happen to it. I've seen a much more complex dress almost torn up after one day of convention (but the girl was running around for con tasks, somehow not surprised).

Anyways thank you for being so gorgeous. Your dancing made my day.
