Odette (Lake)
The Swan Princess

Cosplayer: BabemRoze

Variant: Lake Dress

Status: Complete

Condition: Not Set

7th April 2012: Dress :D (without belt) I forgot to put the belt on when I tried it on B: but I love it :DD It's good size and floats behind me :D as you can see its a tad see-through so I'll wear a vest underneath :D but I adore this!! Now just need to edit the necklace and she's done! <3 (excuse my neice in the corner xD after she saw me in it she followed me around and wouldnt leave me alone :P)

3rd April 2012: Phee works her magic again!! :D Phee has completed the dress! :D She's gonna add the gold bit onto the belt and yay! I love it and can't wait to try it on! :D The sleeves will puff up more when I wear it obvs :B Now I just need shoes and to edit the necklace and she's done!! Yay!!

31st March 2012: Phee I've currently left everything in the capable hands of Phee xD I suck at making stuff and until I get better this dress is really way too advanced for me. Phee came round to start working on the sleeves today and has taken it home so she can work her magic ;3; I love her~

18th March 2012: Dress Ref It's getting there! Phee came round and cut out the pattern for me since I was getting confused. She then applied that to the material and we tacked it (her more than me xD). I've now blitz it through my sewing machine. My stitching isnt 100% but I'm having Phee come and help :D once thats sorted I just need to make the sleeves and belt and hem it all and she's done!

20th February 2012: Materials I know you cant really see it very well. But this is a teal and a dark teal cotton for the sleeves and a white viscose for the dress itself :D

5th February 2012: Wig and Make up! Ah! :D I got my wig a week or so ago and I can't thank Nomes enough! It's the perfect colour, length and style I wanted! I might find a way to straighten it the smallest bit but apart from that it's perfect! For the make up I've just done a very simple top eyeliner with a flick. Mascara, a bit of blush and then some lipstick. The one I'm wearing isn't the lipstick I want to wear for the real thing. The one I want to wear is a plum shade but I couldnt find it >< as always my eyebrows will be thinner too >XD So yeah :D I'm happy.

28th January 2012: Necklace to Edit I saw this necklace and thought "Somewhat perfect!" I dont think it's a locket. But I'm going make a swan shape and stick it on the necklace. Then I'm going to use gold spray paint to paint the heart a darker gold leaving a swan imprint in the light gold behind. :D I hope it works!

13th January 2012: 3rd Time lucky? This amazing beauty was found by Nomes! :D I'm hoping this one will be the perfect one! I'm terrified it'll turn up darker than the picture and once again I'll have to buy another wig @_@ but if all goes well this seems the perfect style and length! Just a bit of a faff with the fringe and it should be okay. As said the other wig isnt a huge waste as I can use it for one of my other costumes ;) I just have to straighten it (and it's heat resistant yay!) So sorry for all the journals about wigs but if this goes well this shall be the last one xD

11th January 2012: Curse of the Wig! I swear this is getting ridiclous D: My first wig never showed up and now this wig turns up and it's brown with blonde. I've emailed the seller so I'll let you see how this turns out. I've got plans for this wig if they don't want me to send it back. So hopefully things will be okay in the end. And if they dont sort this out well third time lucky =/

10th December 2011: Favourite wig? Okay so the first wig I bought for Odette the seller was a scammer and so I didn't get the wig and eBay wouldn't help me get my money back ¬_¬ so I'm looking into buying another (obvs). I can't decide which one to get. My favourite is number 2 but I think it might end up too dark. And I'm scared 1 and 3 will be too light! grrr! It's really hard finding her shade :(

FuriePhoenix avatar

FuriePhoenix - 7th December 2011

BabemRoze avatar

BabemRoze - 7th December 2011

Wig 2 looks almost identical to the one we bought for my sister's Odette costume (you can see it in photos on my Anastasia costume), if that helps.
The two-tone fibres make it look really nice and natural, and under bright lights it's not too dark at all. Would definately recomend that one.

BabemRoze avatar

BabemRoze - 10th December 2011
Brilliant :D That wig looks really gorgeous and she looks beautiful! It was my favourite choice so I'm glad I know what it looks like on someone :D Thanks so much <3!!

Candystriped avatar

Candystriped - 10th December 2011
I'd figure wig 3 - just my personal preference as it seems to have the weft of hair that drifts accross her face

FuriePhoenix avatar

FuriePhoenix - 10th December 2011
wig 2 definitely

Pandora-Chi avatar

Pandora-Chi - 12th December 2011
Oooh if you have not got the wig already I really like wig number 2 - it's not only got the perfect length for Odette but it has two gorgeous shades of blond that isn't too too dark - I know this cos I've got that exact wig which I wore in my journal entry for Battle city Mai if that helps X

i love the fact you went for viscose fabric for the dress, its a perfect choice for something like this as it will flow beautifully. Looking forward to seeing it completed! ^_^
