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.

You look so beautiful!!! I was one of the Princess Tutu cosplayers who was not far from you when some random dude spilled his drink all over the back of your dress. I am so glad you were able to get the stains out quickly. You looked absolutely stunning! :love:

I'm so thankful I had such amazing friends with me at the time. <3 If not for them, I may have had to retire this dress already.

I know! I saw the guy spill his drink on your dress and all I thought was..."Omg, and that is bridal satin." But Ackson jumped up pretty quick and helped you. I would have been freaking out.

Naiiki Featured By Owner Feb 25, 2012  Student Photographer
For some reason, I didn't freak out. Even before they jumped in, I just told the guy to "go away." I guess I am too calm for my own good. Haha. I'm so thankful Ackson and my friend were there... I can't state that enough. They really saved the day. :)

If not for that incident, I was going to ask you guys for a photo. Hahaha!

No, I think it was a good thing you were calm and didn't freak out. That's funny that you were going to ask for a photo right before that happened. Right after Ackson finished cleaning off your dress he asked us for a few video clips. That was such a crazy few minutes. LOL.
