Esmeralda (Gypsy Girl White Peasant Top Costume) - The Hunchback of Notre Dame


Hyper Japan Oct 2010

Third Prize, Sunday Cosplay Contest, Hyper Japan 2010




I designed this costume for EOY 2005 (which stands for the End-Of-Year Cosplay Festival) held at the Golden Sands Resort, East Coast in Singapore.

I love Esmeralda from The Hunchback of Notre Dame, especially the white peasant top costume with the long blue skirt and purple scarf embelished with gold coins.

I chose all the materials myself and had a tailor help me to sew the main dress together. Then I hand-sewed her fuschia head scarf and sewed all the gold coins to the purple skirt scarf.

In 2005 I didn't really have the confidence about my bodyshape to carry this costume off properly, but time has helped me. I got my parents to send over the costume and when I wore it last year at Hyper Japan 2010, I won 3rd prize in the Cosplay Contest on the Sunday :)
