|I never cosplayed form Disney princess before but when I shown some of the dolls and the concepts for them from ( Street-Angel)I instantly loved Tiana 's dress. |
I did orginally wanted to Snow white but I thought Tiana would would be perfect for me ^^.
Also a god excuse to make a poofy ball gown :D Unlike th actually doll, I will add elements of my own to elaborate on the design to make it more pretty such as addying diamantes on tonetting and layer it over the bottom half of the dress.
Wish me luck!
Wig (Posted 13th September 2012)
Now, the wig I was stuck between buying a pre styled curly bob or to use a long wig and create the volume by cutting it make wefts to insert into the base.
Skirt section~ (Posted 15th August 2012)
Skirt part I found slightly more difficult, as I was not sure how many meters to use for the circle skirt. I used a renaissance circle pattern and added extra panels just in case. However, the length was way too long for me and t needed to altered with a hoop skirt on. luckily I had some assistance from My mum,who helped me out cut any excess fabric way whilst I stood on a chair:3
bodice leaves + skirt leaves (Posted 5th August 2012)
After sewing the leaves ,I proceed to stick on ivy green gems onto the area with fabric glue and used a hairdresser to speed up the process.
Leaf designs (Posted 20th July 2012)
I had no idea how I was going to make the leaves and fit them neatly on to the bodice to create more shape.
Bodice (Posted 18th July 2012)
I bought 10m of light green satin as I had never made a ball gown before, and wanted to extra careful in case things went wrong. |I had used the wedding pattern previously for my Pandora cosplay and used a base bodice pattern to get started. I didn't have a dressmakers dummy, so I had to guess my measurements and apply it to the pattern when drafting out the mock version.
