Garnet has been my favorite heroine for quite a long time now. For many years she has inspired me with her bravery, self-sufficiency and elegance balanced with her strong will and love for adventure.
There was a time where I grasped through the darkest depths of confusion and misery in my life. Somehow of all the few things that could bring light into my world, thinking about FFIX, and Garnet’s inner-beauty had the power to give me the strength I needed to become brave and realize my own beauty. She is a most wonderful princess that lives in nebulous dreams, and has helped realized how much more I am in reality. We share similarities of once living in lost worlds, Madain Sari being a fictional incarnation of Lemuria-Atlantis, two continents that sunk due to various disasters before recorded history (I wrote a small essay on FFIX’s correlation to them here).
I may not be drawing more fanarts of her for a while, as life is moving in an even more magical direction now which I invite you to share, especially if you dabble in the esoteric! But before saying goodbye, I had to express my appreciation for my favorite princess one last time. 💛
Process of this
My coworker needed a Khaleesi wig for a halloween costume so I braided one of my spares! I did not photograph the back yet because it is very inaccurate!
im a bad person who thinks bad thoughts like ‘ew what is that girl wearing’ and then remember that im supposed to be positive about all things and then think ‘no she can wear what she wants, fuck what other people say damn girl u look fabulous’ and im just a teeny bit hypocritical tbh
I was always taught by my mother, That the first thought that goes through your mind is what you have been conditioned to think. What you think next defines who you are.
