|My parents bought me this costume for a birthday present - it is secondhand, bought from Phalor/Claranee - her costume entry is here (http://www.cosplayisland.co.uk/costume/view/49769). As you can see it had been commissioned - I don't know off who, I will ask when I get the chance. I saw that she was selling this and I've always wanted to cosplay a Disney princess, and I much prefer the blue dress to the pink, and it was the right size, so tada! I had a wig that I could use for this but it sadly got too tangled to be re-worn - but it was too long and yellow and not-great quality to begin with. So I will be buying a new wig. I already have two pairs of blue shoes I could wear, heels and flats - I will have to make the necklace, but that shouldn't be difficult. Not sure where I'll wear this, perhaps October Expo.|
Wig has arrived (Posted 21st August 2013)
And it's gorgeous! Will hopefully style it soon.
Necklace failed :( (Posted 27th July 2013)
Sadly once I spray-painted the necklace the detail disappeared into a big blobby mess and I couldn't fix it so I've made another plain necklace (which is so much easier to put on) and hopefully that will dry pretty. I've also ordered a wig from cosplaydna on ebay which is apparently good. I went for a more sandy beige blonde than golden yellow blonde because I've ordered a yellow-blonde wig before and it was just too yellow and unnatural and didn't need to be that bright. Also in the actual film especially in "Once Upon a Dream" you can tell her hair is more sandy than gold. I don't know how easy it's going to be to style but I've looked at some "fluffy bangs" tutorials and I think I know roughly what I want to do. I'll go at it with normal hairspray and hair clay until I have a rough shape worked out and then go in with got 2 b glued.
Sigh. (Posted 27th July 2013)
So work on necklace mark IV has begun.
Mark 1: Cardboard that turned out too creased to look good.
Quickly losing patience with what should be an easy accessory!
