Costume Information

Description
PLEASE LOOK AT THE GALLERY I HAVE TAGGED MYSELF IN BECAUSE REASONS
Damn CI;'s photo limit of 12 ;_; I want to upload so many more but I can't so yes, please look at the tagged photos as well!

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

Frying pans are awesome weapons.

Finally saw the movie, and I really want to work on this more! James (devil_trigger) bought me a Pascal plush for my birthday so I have a chameleon companion ^^ Also debating on how to style my wig. As much as I want it loose with 2 small braids at the top, I'm increasingly tempted to go for the thick braid.

While this isn't going to be 100% accurate, I'm pretty happy with what I've done so far. I've altered the bodice a little so it's more flattering on me (hopefully). The top and skirt are separate, for ease of putting it on and wearing.
I am terrified of having bare feet for the duration of wearing it (being trodden on, standing on/in something or splinters...) BUT I CAN AND WILL DO IT

CREDIT WHERE IT'S DUE 8D: Thank you so much to my mum for helping with the sleeves, and a mazzive thank you to Holly for helping brush the wig and to Zoe for styling it so beautifully for me ^^ Couldn't have finished this without you guys!

Wearing this was great fun, but I'm not sure what I'm going to do about the wig: it kept getting caught on all the buttons! I think from now on, I'll keep it in a plait except for photoshoots and brushing. Having bare feet at an expo wasn't as bad as I thought it would be, though my feet were so filthy by the end! Will be taking cleansing wipes next time!

Worn at:
Manchester Expo 2011 with Insomniatic Cosplay's Disney Princess Group
London Expo October 2011 with Sakurahana as Mother Gothel
Amecon 2012 with MadameLapin as Flynn Rider and Street-Angel as Mother Gothel

*please look in the journal and my dA for more photos, WHY CAN'T I HOLD ALL THESE PICTURES*

saw about the wig and you not thinking youd get an accurate one, but a bit in the film her hair is platted with flowers in you should do that or google the disney world version of her to see her plate hope that helps

Derp photo montage (Posted 15th August 2012)

I just dont have any room for the amount of photos I want to upload, and I just love these ones so much!
So here are some glorious glorious derpy faces
Street-Angel as Mother Gothel, MadameLapin as Flynn Rider, photos by Martin

Wig S.O.S (Posted 27th October 2011)

I forgot quite HOW tangled the wig got at Manchester (no pun intended), but with the help of my bemused flatmates, I've managed to get it looking presentable once more. It's going to stay in a plait forevermore so I shall buy some flower clips tomorrow to spruce it up a bit :)

Dots (Posted 27th July 2011)

I decided to do the dots on the skirt pattern after all.
I REGRETTED IT SOON AFTERWARD
Handsewing 130+ small dots... never again

WIGGGG (Posted 25th July 2011)

IT IS DONE
I AM SO HAPPY WITH IT 8D
THANK YOU SO MUCH HOLLY FOR BRUSHING IT WHEN I GOT TOO STRESSED
THANK YOU SO MUCH ZOE FOR STYLING IT
I LOVE YOU GUYS

still not done the wig (Posted 24th July 2011)

IT'S THE NEW SCARY PART
But other than the wig, EVERYTHING IS DONE 8D So grateful to mum for helping construct the sleeves, and help me with putting the skirts together (needed more then 2 hands XD).
Will do the dots on the pattern this week, seeing as Eilonwy is p much done now (not sure if I'm still wearing that to Manchester though)

Getting there (Posted 19th July 2011)

THE PATTERN ON THE SKIRT IS DONE

Minus all the little dots though, as I want to get Eilonwy done, and the dots aren't THAT important.
Mum has kindly taken over the sleeves for me as they looked shit when I did them and got really upset/frustrated about it. I made the componants, she’s putting them together to make it look gooood

Will have a go at styling the wig tomorrow *scared*

Over the weekend... (Posted 17th July 2011)

I STARTED THE PATTERN ON THE SKIRT imstillwellscared
Also spent a few hours doing minor edits/fixes, such as the sleeves and lace panel

Abouuut 1/4 done with the skirt pattern, but need more stuff

Progress (Posted 13th July 2011)

So very close now!
Need:
-a little more ribbon for the sleeves
-take in the corset to make it fit better
-skirt pattern (I HAVE A PLAN NOW)
-wig styling

skirts (Posted 12th July 2011)

The skirt is pretty much done (did the petticoat today), I just have to do the patterns >.<
THIS IS WHAT I HAVE BEEN DREADING
I may do the sleeves tomorrow instead and worry about the skirt another day (i.e RUN AWAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAY)

Take a climb, sew a dress! (Posted 10th July 2011)

More progress!
My wig arrived last week (I was away), and I've been itching to get working on this again after going to Disneyland XD Will be wig styling sometime in the next few days
Sooo I've started putting ribbon all around the edge of the skirt, to get the most labourious bit out of the way~

Bodice 3 and stuff (Posted 25th June 2011)

The bodice is all done, except for the 6 pink buttons, which I will get on Monday. All the lace and ribbon took forever!
Made patterns for the puff sleeves and the skirt, will make them tomorrow probably
Bought a new lightweight frying pan and my wig yesterday.

SO MUCH PROGRESS I AM HAPPY

Bodice 2 (Posted 3rd May 2011)

Took a hammer to it today to put in all 22 eyelets (yes I am that sad that I counted how many eyelets there are on her corset...) It was oddly satisfying.
All the pieces are tacked together now, and the pink bits of the seeves made (though one sleeve has gone missing)

Now excuse me, I'm watching the Little Mermaid :')

work (Posted 11th January 2011)

Started working on the bodice today, and my material combination seems to be working so far ^^

Shopping done? (Posted 9th December 2010)

I went on a bit of a mad shopping spree for fabric and I think I have everything I need now.
Purple duchess satin for the skirt
Couldn't find lilac broderie alglaid for the corset, so I bought lilac cotton and asome really nice embroidered sheer fabric instead. It will work (hoping)
Lots of white and pink lace, and pink ribbon
Pink and purple satin, and pink stretch for the sleeves

amongst other things. I think I'm ready. ALSO the disney store are apparantly now stocking Tangled merch... time to get a Pascal!
I may need a different frying pan though as mine is pretty big and heavy....
