Thumbelina - Thumbelina


AyaCon 2013


This film has come up in conversation a few times recently, and so I decided to rewatch it. I FORGOT HOW UTTERLY AWESOME IT WAS!

SOooooooo this, coupled with rereading the fairytale a few times has led me to wanting to cosplay this in the near future. It's a nice simple design so I may make it if I need a quick costume, or something to work on during uni.

Because the wig I'm using is a little darker than Thumbelina's hair, I'm going to use fabrics to match. So it'll look more like the DVD box art than in-movie colour-wise.

Shirt made from cotton jersey, sleeves stuffed with toy stuffing.
Corset made from duchess satin, using an adapted pattern.
Skirt made from bi-stretch (same as Ariel)
Forget-me-nots made from felt, with yellow fabric paint centres and sewn onto green lacing cord. They look delightfully rubbish and I don't even care XD

Worn at Amecon with SakuraHana as Cornelius. Please watch the video of us in the Omake! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kwyiPqXNZPU (it wont embed)
Also worn at Midlands Expo 2013. It was great fun, other than that wearing ANYTHING that dangles (hair, capes etc) at an expo is asking for trouble. This is now soley a con cosplay.

To be worn at Ayacon 2013 as part of a non-Disney princess group!

Ooh, Thumbelina - that sounds great, I'll be interested to see this one finished! :D Though how will you be doing the hair? I wouldn't think they'd make wigs that long XD

I already have a ginger wig, so I will probably just buy a ponytail extension for that c: It hopefully will make the ponytail look fabulous and layered :)

Is done. Made from teal duchess satin :) I now have a chain of forget me nots drying on a hanger, along with a forget-me-not hairband Consider this cosplay DONE

3rd June 2012


Despite my color scheme being more box-art-y, I've gone for more in-movie sleeves as they look cuter. The result is rubber-ring-arm-bands apparantly Am quite happy with them, especially because if I get tired I have pillows on my shoulders to rest my head on XD

9th May 2012


Started on the skirt today. Juuuust had enough material to make a full circle. I intended to make it so it would be one piece, but not enough fabric to do that so there will just have to be two seams rather than one :c Full circle skirts are the best. Swooooosh 14/5/12- finally finished hemming this darn thing. Must be at least 5 metres circumference :/ But so swoopy

7th May 2012


Purchased a loooooong ponytail to match my wig so that I have crazy long hair :) Oh word, why do I love the crazy long hair people
