Costume Information

For Insomniatic-Cosplay's Disney princess group ^^ I cant decide whether to be Rapunzel or Eilonwy so I'm planning to do both XD

The forgotten Disney princess. I find her hilarious XD
I love her character in the story of the black cauldron (recently read it) and rewatching the newly rereleased DVD of the disney movie made me love her even more.
I wonder if I can get a Gurgy plushie...

First worn during an evening of Ayacon 2011
Worn again at Fushicon 2011
Due to the collapse of the KH group at Midlands, I wore this again because I love it so much XD With Devil_Trigger as Taran
To be worn yet again for an evening of Amecon 2012. This is the first time the costume will be worn with a wig :)

Black Cauldron was my favourite Disney movie as a kid and I don't even KNOW how many times I've read the Chronicles of Prydain!!

I love you so much for doing this ~<3

Yuup ^^ The only series I've read more than Prydain is Harry Potter ^^ Dammit, now I wanna re-read them

ALSO, Gurgi plushiiieee!!! that would be the cutest thing ever. If you get one, be sure to feed him much munchings and crunchings :P

I was debating whether to dig out my Link sword from the CosplayCuboardofDoom for you to do heroic poses with :) Let's watch Black Cauldron when I come over for Disneyland!

Aww thank you everyone!

@Furie: It's suprisingly simple to make and is so comfy ^^ I think the hardest bit was trying to tame all the chiffon and get bias binding round the edges (never going to attempt to hem chiffon without bias ever again lmao)

Pretty much done (Posted 24th July 2011)

The skirts are done, mum sorted out the sleeves for me (so grateful ;.; Gotta work on mah sleeve skillz)
Not sure if I'm still wearing this for Manchester, but will definately be taking this to Fushicon and maybe Aya!

Back to work (Posted 20th July 2011)

With Rapunzel nearly done, I figured I should do some more on this.
Put the red on the top and the pink on the skirt, and remade the sleeves. I tried attatching the sleeves to the top, but I SUCK AT GATHERING AND ATTACHING GATHERED SLEEVES. Tomorrow I may have to get madre to help me (she's used the same pattern before)

Top (Posted 24th April 2011)

Started on the top today. Made two as the first one screwed up epically (wrong size, managed to put a hole in it, spilt juice on it >.<). The second one is much better now c: Just got to do the hem and the red

Shoes (Posted 11th February 2011)

To remove the temptation of buying this for other costumes, I bought some black ballet pump type shoes for this today c:

Headband (Posted 20th December 2010)

I made it today~ It's just a hoop of black velvet ribbon XD

Fabric shopping (Posted 23rd November 2010)

Started buying fabric for this
So far I have.... Navy blue t-shirt fabric for the top, white fabric for the skirt and sleeves, pink chiffon for the overskirt, red fabric for detail and black velvet ribbon for her headband
