Vidia
Tinkerbell movies

Cosplayer: FuriePhoenix

Status: Complete

Condition: Not Set

23rd May 2012: COMPLETE! Will move into complete section once I get some nice photos of it, but yeah... ITS COMPLETE!!!!!!! Oh my god, I am sooooo thankful for it being completed in time you would not believe!! I finished it up this morning/afternoon before lunch. As for the wings straps, I'll shorten them once I put them on on Sunday morning after breakfast as it will be easier for mom to yank the straps back from the harness once I'm wearing them, and shorten them that way, than it would be to guess how much I need to shorten them by.

I'm now super eager to wear Vidia and prance around pretending to fly.... very fast lmao! I did also make the hair bangle out of some bendy wire that is covered in purple fake fur type stuff....I cant remember the name of the things but their crafty things and a good color for her hair bangle. I just didn't take a pic of it before I packed it in with the wig and into my small weekend away suitcase. So good to know I wont need a huge suitcase for expo this time round... okay I'm now rambling on and off topic.... lol!

Just gotta pack my wings into a seperate bag and my top into my small case and I'm done! PHEW!

15th May 2012: make up test Sooo I attempted a make up test, I quite like it but I'll probably make it a tad darker on the eyes on the outer corners and such.

My webcam totally washed out the make up test, but I'll put it up on here anyway so you get a JIST of what I'm aiming for. I was bored and decided to do one, now I know Vidia will DEFINITELY be at expo!

I used:
Concealer
Foundation (liquid)
Powder foundation
Bronzer
very light pink eyeshadow
beige eyeshadow
light bronze eyeshadow
mascara
eyeliner
brown lipstick (though will use a pencil lip liner when i do it properly- i was too lazy to go into another to get one!)
pink/natural lipstick

ad pretty much in that order.. though I did my mascara first as i can never do it neatly and have to correct any mistakes lol

25th April 2012: front of wig I went with this amazing wig and ponytail extension for my Vidia wig because it was a reasonable price of £22 instead of the £25 its sister company was charging for it.

Also it's got a great set of bangs to style into Vidia's without having to do too much to it. I wont get the big volume high ponytail that Vidia has or the parks can get, but I didn't with Meg and it was still fine! SO yeah... this is the wig I've bought.

18th December 2011: items for wings I'm gonna be getting these thick durable but flexible plastic sheets from paperchase to make the wings out of, as I found them in there the other night and was really impressed with them. So when I can afford to spend money on this costume (I'm REALLY wanting to make this wings!) I'll be getting them.

I also just found on their site some silver glitter that I will use to do the 'veins' in the wings to give them glistening effect.

15th December 2011: top WIP So I've sewn up the top (hemmed it all up), so now I gotta figure out how to the back 'flap' so the wings can fit on underneath the top, but out out through the back to give it a natural 'real' look. So basically the wings come out through the top, but the straps are hidden underneath the top.

I also gotta get some material to make the collar detailing and of course make the leaf skirt/bottom detailing on the top. I'm thinking of doing the leaves so they attach to the top instead of doing it in a skirt fashion as I think it will be easier.

Then I gotta do the leaves on the leggings and get some shoes and of course that dreaded wig and the wings themselves!

10th December 2011: mom's work = aladdin's cave of wonders! I don't know what I'd do if mom ever left her work HAHA!

Well she only and went found a long floor length dark purple (same colour as Vidia's vest) at her work today and brought it home for me to turn into her top!!! And because it's so long, I can use it to make Megara's top waistband on her dress!!! Possibly both if I'm really lucky and don't mess the top part of it up for Vidia! YAY!

So it means, I can start work on Vidia a lot sooner than I ever imagined!

6th December 2011: lucky find! I swear within cosplay, my middle name should be lucky haha!

So I was browsing around Primark today and was mooching around the clearance rails when I found purple skirts that were down to 50p!! The colour will really work for her feather/leaf design on the bottom of the top and the bottom of her leggings, so I got two of skirts to use for them yippee! I figured it would definitely be cheaper to do it that way, than buy a load of fabric from a fabric store. All I have to do is cut the skirts up into 'feather/leaf' shapes and work on them.

22nd November 2011: Top If I make the top from scratch completely. (Depends if I can find a decent pattern anywhere really and if I feel confident enough to make it from scratch)

I'll be using this material: purple velour velvet like they do in the parks and then use maybe purple/pinkish pipe cording or something similar to do the leave veins on the jacket. I think this fabric will just look more luxurious and be comfortable. If not (it also depends on funds) I'll go back to my original idea in the first journal for her top. OR buy a purple velvet coat/jacket and edit that into Vidia's.

22nd November 2011: wig So I've been looking at wigs whilst I'm waiting for the last minute on a bid for a Re-L costume piece on ebay, and found this one wig.

I know the front is wrong length wise, but to make the ponytail noticable from the front, I was gonna cut off the length from the front and somehow attach the wefts I cut off, and add them on the top of the ponytail on the top of the wig. So it adds volume but in a light-ish way. It's the only way I can think of to be honest. ^_^ SEE PICTURE.

I know in some shots Vidia's hair looks purple-ish or blue-ish but looking at my doll and in most pictures, her hair is in fact Black, it just has that multicoloured shine that a lot of black hair does actually have when sunshine hits it. Oh the glory of black hair haha!

21st November 2011: recycle cosplay! My god it just occured to me tonight, that I still have my body forming purple leggings from my Kaoru cheshire cat cosplay knocking around so I can use them to turn into Vidia's!!!

Mom gave me an idea for her vest- get a purple long sleeved top from primark two sizes too big for me so its fitted- but not skin tight and edit it. Then I figured out HOW to edit!

Cut the sleeves off, and use one sleeve to make her collar, then with a fine brush I can paint all the leave veins onto it and then with scissors make little snips into the edges so it looks like hers. It's a start definitely if I dont come up with anything else.

For the feathers I'm gonna get some white fabric (unless i find the right coloured fabric) and dye it and cut out each feather shape individually, paint the designs on the 'feathers' and snip down the sides to give them a more 'real' look. I can do the same for the half feathers on her leggings.

Then get some purple pumps for her shoes. The hardest task will be her wings and wig. I'm now really excited to do this costume! Yay i get to be a fairy!!! Ooh... and her ears...gotta fathom that out
