|Time Taken :||2 weeks|
|One of my current Disney plans. I've always loved Jasmine, and always used to dress as her to fancy dress parties as a child, but I've always put off cosplaying her for two reasons; the first being that I'm way too pale, the second being that Popi Atom did the best Jasmine cosplay I have ever seen and I didn't have the confidence to try to even equal it.|
But since every other Disney girl I love (other than perhaps Meg and Sally)are racially innapropriate beyond the ability of Bronzer and fake tan (Pocahontas, Tiana, Esmerelda, Mulan) or are seriously over-cosplayed (Belle, Ariel), I may as well try Jasmine.
I do however, refuse to do the same green two piece that I see everywhere and that I used to wear as a child, especially since Popi does it best. So instead I'm going to be a bit original and go for an ensemble which I have never seen Cosplayed and also has the added bonus of less exposed skin to have to bronze. If you don't recognise it, it's from the fun scene between Jasmine and the genie where he turns her into all the other Disney Princesses.
The hardest part of this costume is undoubtedly going to be the make-up, since I do not even remotely look like Jasmine, but I welcome the challenge.
Trial (Posted 28th January 2012)
Actually almost done on the basic costume. Just sewing together the lining of the coat and sorting out the trouser cuffs, then all that's left is to accessorise. I will get pictures at some point but that'll probabaly be when I test the belt and necklace, which are currently in the drying stage of sculpting.
Coat progress (Posted 7th January 2012)
Finally! Christmas is over and I am now allowed to sew things again, so I ventured out in the rediculous winds of the outside world to go and find fabrics to get started on this and the other 5 costumes I'm working on right now.
Also, little note: The background in these pictures is the fabric for the blue fairy. I literally cannot contain my excitement.
Plans (Posted 11th December 2011)
Any one that knows me personally knows that I spend a good 2-5 months planning every cosplay in a rediculous amount of detail before I buy materials and fabrics so I don't have to hesitate and leave things till last.
