Rapunzel - Tangled


Kitacon IV (2012)

Disneyland Paris' official Rapunzel's royal seal of approval




I've wanted to cosplay a disney character for ages now and have ended up choosing punzie xD

I want to do the Disneyland version of the hair (half plait/half free-hanging) and hope to achieve the thickness of the wig using hair alone so it looks natural and I can sling it on my shoulder or down my back whenever I want :3

Hopefully should have this done for the ball at Kita! ^^

Now fully complete with the underskirt and wig done.
Took a photo to Disneyland and showed actual Rapunzel my costume and she loved it saying it has her royal seal of approval and is worthy of Flynn's smoulder. Made my life. <3

It's so nice to see someone doing the embroidery instead of using the easy way with paints and such! Can't wait to see the finished version <3

Still in Progress

Why, you may ask. Because I didn't get to finish off the embroidery around the skirt or make her braid. This will be done before May Expo.

Attaching the skirt

So today I attached the main skirt and the front panel together and came across a small problem. The front panel is somehow shorter than the rest of the skirt, which is weird because I used all the same measurements . . .
I'm hoping to sort out the problem at the waist band, but that may involve unpicking some of my embroidery T_T WHYYYYYY?!

HALLELLUJAH! That took way longer than I thought it would ¬_¬

Embroidery Fun Times

Oh yeah, I'm being all accurate and embroidering ALL the patterns around the skirt. Lord help me . . .

6th March 2012

3 hours later . . .

Three hours later and I have lost the will to live. I can pick this up tomorrow. -_-

I was right about pattern not completely fitting together, so where it didn't work out, I simply filled in any gaps with a suitable shape/pattern or even just dots. xD Ah well, it works.

Skirt Panel Painting Start

Sooo, time to get down to business. I've got this stuff called Textile Medium, which makes Acrylic paints into fabric paint. I mixed pink, blue and silver together to give the decorations the metallic tint that the embellishments on the skirt have.
I'm not painting the pattern accurately, just an interpretation of what it could be, so it may not fit together properly, but ah well. I literally just grabbed a paintbrush and doodled, think it's turning out pretty well so far. ^^
(Changed the date to make the journals go in the right order ¬_¬)

Bodice Fabric

Found some lovely soft fabric in the scrap pile at my local market which was so perfect for the bodice ^^ Hope to be painting on the patterns soon.

8th August 2011

Wig Start

Well I figured this wig would take a while, so I might aswell start it now . . .

I've bought the base wig so far, which is a long wavy blonde one. This will be the inner part of the wig, giving it it's volume and thickness, hence the wavyness :P

It still needs a brush through as it's been sat in a plait for a while, but yeah, here is my base :3
