Description
I'm going to do this for October's expo with ma friends as Mother Gothel, Pascal and Flynn (Eugene) BUT if I can get her done for LFCC in July then I'd LOVE to become Punzie alot sooner! XD!

I want to be Rapunzel because she kicks ass, shes loving, she gets the hottest disney male since Prince Eric and John Smith, I can relate to her, has one of the most awesome animal sidekick AND it means I can walk around in public with a frying pan and no one will question it hahahaha!

Tangled has rapidly become one of my fav disney films of all time and is in my top 4 favs definitely!
(1: Little Mermaid 2: Tangled 3: Peter Pan and 4) Beauty and the Beast)

Also note: I'll be doing the 2ND skirt she's seen in, in the promo pictures released by Disney NOT the one from the actual film as the dress I got is the accurate colour to her 2nd skirt more. So see 1st ref picture for skirt ref

UPDATE: I have started work on this for something to do and I'm desperate to get working on it lol!
If I don't attend October expo, then I MIGHT take it with me to Mickey's not-so-scary halloween party at disneyland Paris if I don't take an Ariel costume with me lol.

UPDATE: Cant go to disneyland paris for halloween anymore... sad face

UPDATE: I really wanna get this completed now for October Expo, I wanna prance as Punzie already! I'm so impatient! But it is sad I don't have a Flynn! Not really an update.. but meh! lol

UPDATE 3: Putting back into 'IN PROGRESS' as I'm now making a cape to wear for travelling and when I get cold at expo lol

UPDATE 4: BACK INTO 'COMPLETE' AS EVERYTHING IS DONE NOW!

UPDATE 5: Rapunzel will be making her debut at a very special girl's 3rd birthday next week!

UPDATE 6: Gonna re wear to EMS hopefully to go with aks_100's Gothel

I can't imagine how weird it must have felt for her once her hair was plaited XD You'll look amazing in this bubble! I knew it was only a matter of time! x

Nomes- It was sheer fluke that I found a base dress with the right fabric! I wasn't planning on getting this started AT ALL until after may expo but then I saw this dress for £3.50.... and well... you get the jist! XD!
Babemroze- Haha yeah it must have felt weird but a huge relief not to carry it round haha!

aww thank you! And I couldn't agree more! She really is a great character as I love the fact she's an independent princess and not all 'so proper and elegent' like the past princesses such as aurora and cinderella. (I still love those princesses though!)

I still do love the older princesses and I can never pick a favourite ^^ and that is very true bout Rapunzel - she's just so sweet and clearly can prove to fight off any 'weird men' in the film ^_~ I LOVE the closet scene the best XD

You're probably in the top 5 of the best ever cosplayed Disney Girls I've ever seen, first you whip out Ariel as a human and mermaid and now you whip out Rapunzel and still manage to look bloody amazing in it. As Nastumi-chan said : the detail is exquisite and you're on of the few cosplayers I know who actually feels like they are in te characters socks, shoes and panties. Well done love

Braid (Posted 21st February 2012)

Oh...my...god after this is finished I am NEVER doing a braid for Rapunzel AGAIN! Seriously... dont even think about asking me to do one again... haha!

I've started work on the braid for Saturday and for Disney on Ice/future princess parties and I'm NOWHERE near completing it in my opinion. I keep looking at it and thinking "oh god it could be so much better" but considering how short the foam is I've done my best.

I still have more wefts to add to it to cover the foam some more, and then I gotta hot glue the wefts onto the foam so its well covered, then I gotta hot glue the flowers onto it. Because the foam is so short the braid has become a mix of the film version and the park's version of it. See photo attached.

Seriously.. I'm needing so much luck with this, to make it look good enough because right now I'm not entirely sure if I like it.... I'm just hoping that once it's finished it will look better than it currently does. The photo at the side shows the disneyworld park Rapunzel and the way the braid is and the images on the sides is my wig... so I'll be going with the film version of the braid (hows its braided up top) and going with the park version with the longer bottom and shorter braid... hope this makes sense!

wig (Posted 20th February 2012)

Oh my... so I've entered Rapunzel into Hyper Japan's COSParade and as I wanted to braid the blonde wig for Disney on Ice and the foam batting arrived the other day, I've decided to spend the next three days braiding the wig in time for Hyper Japan and Saturday's COSParade.

I found all the flowers I bought for when I wanted to braid the wig today and found the rest of the spar wig I bought for the extra wefts, so I'm going to get some skin colored tights, cut the foam into three pieces, roll it up, put them in the tights, sew them about half way down the wig and braid the foam with the main wig. Then with the spare wig I'll use it to cover any gaps there might be, and to wrap a few wefts round the bottom of the braid and to thicken up the little bit that you get when you've finished the braiding... i guess you can call it the little ponytail bit??

WISH ME LUCK!!!

Cape (Posted 18th October 2011)

So something I totally didnt plan to do, but when I found great velvet for really cheap in a market today, I decided to buy 3metres of it so I can make a cape with a hood for Rapunzel, so I dont have to worry about trying to find a jacket at home that will remotely go with my costume for travelling and when I get cold outside.

The velvet is gorgeous quality considering the price (£3pm) and with the 3 metres I got, I have plenty to make a cape and a hood whilst having the fabric doubled over so its velvet on the under side and outer side. I'm not going for the coronation cape she wore with the faux fur trim, but going with my own design as I think Punzie wearing a hooded cape would be utterly adorable, and also its historically more accurate (think Mother Gothel's cape).

outfit complete!!!! (Posted 10th October 2011)

YAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAY!!!!!!!! *lets off streamers and poppers and fireworks and lanterns* HAPPY DANCE!! *Boogie*

Oh yeah, this project is now complete!!!!! I'm so happy- cant ya tell!? LOL! There's two TEENY TINY little bits that I need to alter but they're so minor its like a 5minute bit of work that isnt too bad to be honest. Though I do have to sew up the hole thats somehow appeared in my left sleeve over night. But its all on the seam line of the sleeve so its a case of just re sewing it up.

But yeah, I'm so proud of this costume!!! Now I'm uber excited to wear her with my contacts and wig and my little Pascal safety pinned to my shoulder!! I still got the other side of the flag to finish off but again, its minor... lol

Now to buy some lanterns!! BUt the costume is complete..so its being moved from in progress to complete!

shoes (Posted 6th October 2011)

So after finding my dark pink shoes I decided to use for Rapunzel to save on money, I still ended up buying new shoes today for her. XD go figure!!

I wasn't going to bother though, but considering they ended up being in the sale for £3 in Primark and they are pretty much the same shade of lilac as the shoes Rapunzel wears in the parks (just a matte mesh instead of shiny) I thought I'd get them.

So the picture in the 'gallery' is the picture of the shoes I will use for Rapunzel when travelling to expo and walking around inside. I did also buy some toeless skin coloured tights to wear for photos so I can still be shoeless and "accurate" whilst being comfortable too.

wig (Posted 30th September 2011)

Okay... wiggy wig wig!!

So As you most of you know, I WAS planning on doing her mega braid for practicality, yet when I was doing a dummy run braiding it today after I wefted half of the wig I really hated how thin the braid looked and when I placed the flowers on it, the braid got rather hidden and well.. MEH!

Also, the smaller braids I bought to sew into it have ended up being a completely different shade of blonde to the wig and dont go what so ever! So I can't use them, and I hate the thin-ness of the braid once the wig braided. It just doesn't look right for my liking. Also it's beginning to be really darn heavy, so with the braid it would have left my head before I knew it!

So with all this in mind I have decided to not do the braid for the time being and leave it long and flowing! I'll just have to make sure I got my wide toothed comb with me and gently run the comb through it throughout the day. On the up side though, the bangs have come out PERFECTLY!

Contacts arrived (Posted 30th September 2011)

So my contacts have arrived!! I love the colour! Although they're a one tone coloured contact, but as I got a lighter shade of green compared to my Yuna contacts, I think over my dark blue eyes they will still look quite natural and animated at the same time. Which if it looks how I see it in my head- will look great!

Petticoat and contact lenses (Posted 29th September 2011)

So this morning, I managed to get a pretty good white petticoat with a lace trim already sewn on at the bottom for £5.75 and free postage, so I figured whilst I have the funds, I'd buy it. It also means I dont have to panic about getting one at last minute and it possibly not turning up!

I also bought some green contact lenses from www.coloured-contact-lens.co.uk with a case for £12.43. I've bought from the before (i got my Yuna contacts from them) and though they are really cheap, they're REALLY comfortable for an all day wear. I wasn't expecting to buy them out this pay, but I ended up anyway lol. At least I dont have to worry about them now I guess!

Polystyrene Head!!! (Posted 27th September 2011)

I got a polystyrene head today!!! And for a cheap £2.99!!! Well okay i Lie.... the truth is.. Mom got me the polystyrene as she went out to Penge and found a shop there that specialises in everything wig and hair! So I'll have to add that to the rest of the cash I owe her haha!!

I drew on her and named her Mika after my OC hahaha! Yes I AM that sad! LOL! But it means now, that me and mom have set ourselves Saturday for Punzie wig wefting!!!

Then on 9th October I shall be going to Concertina's place for punzie bodice work to get the grommets put in, and I'll be helping her with her wig(s)! Woop I'm now really looking forward to getting this finally finished!!

Bodice re work (Posted 21st September 2011)

Sooooooooooooooooo because I&#039;m a perfectionist, I have decided to re work the bodice front. ^___^

So I cut out the hook and eye &#039;panel&#039; fastening and replaced it with a lilac panel to which I sewed in, on the right side and fastened with poppers on the left. So I can put the bodice on a lot more easier now, without so much faffing around with hook and eyes. ^____^

So because of this now, it will be easier to now add in the grommets (when I eventually get to Concentina&#039;s place or vise versa) and will be A LOT easier for the lacing to sit in the front whilst looking A LOT more accurate!!

I also managed yesterday to get the sleeve motif completely finished! WOOP WOOP!
