Aww you look so beautiful already, this will look pro for sure can't wait to see it. ^^ Do you mind me asking where you got your wig from? :) either my friend or myself will be cosplaying frozen sometime and I'm worried about ordering a wig and not getting the right colour!

Progress Journal

Blouse+Skirt progress

Slowly getting there~ I just need to finish the Bodice so I can complete the blouse design...just that and the cape/hat to go T//T~

15th March 2014

Mittens~

First time making Mittens~ (The lighting in my room makes these look way bluer than they actually are ._. )
They're not perfect but hopefully they will look OK with everything else (I'm going to die from heat haha...)
I used Fleece fun's mitten tutorial to make these~

10th March 2014

Skirt finished~

Finally finished painting and adding the details to my skirt.
I used purple Taffeta for the hem details as the park versions of this costume seem to use a similar fabric,Melton wool for the main skirt and hand painted the patterns with the help of stencils (I'll eventually add embroidery detail to this)with acrylic paints.

Skirt pattern painting~

Just the steps I went through to paint my skirt pattern on~ I would have loved to have embroider these on but I'm such an embroidery newbie, and I don;t have much time , I'll definitely add some in the future!

9th March 2014

Skit Templates/Stencils

I decided making a stencil would be the best option to get all my skirt patterns even whilst painting them onto my fabric.
I also made a template for the scalloped pattern around the hem of the skirt too, making sure the smaller leaf pattern fit nicely between the peaks of the purple trim.

Clasps finished~

Completed clasps~

Cape clasps

My second try at working with Worbla~
I tried a different technique this time, instead of forming the Worbla over foam I decided to try mold it around a clay original to get the clasps to match as much as I could.
The original sculpt is made out of Sculpey (I made them a little bigger to match the Disney park versions) and baked to set.
I then tested the mold out a couple of times before I got two I liked (my first attempt I forgot to place the ball on the tip of the heart-shape before i started priming haha)I also added some like "bridges" in the back to attach them to the finished cape.
I then primed each piece with 3 coats of PVA (I tried with more but I found the PVA took away some of the details when it got too thick)then painted them with a base silver coloured acrylic.
Then I just added a little bit of weathering, shadows and highlights and added gloss to seal everything in~

Thanks to Jo(Darkshine) for helping me out with Worbla shaping when I kept messing up haha <3

Boots WIP-02

Painted over the white pen lines with venetian gold acrylic paint and sealed~
Wow it was super hard to paint this onto each boot and make them look similar, but I think in the end I got as close as I could!

15th January 2014

Boots WIP-01

Boots design sketched out in white pen.
Also painted the heel to match the boot design a little more~

31st December 2013

Fabrics~

Base skirt fabric (It's a super nice soft wool, I wanted to try get accurate fabrics for this),I'm still waiting on samples to arrive for the purple/blue to put on the bottom of the skirt.
And black and gold suede-like fabric for the bodice (again I wanted to pick something that would seem more accurate, and the park version of Anna's costume look like it uses a similar style fabric for the bodice)
Plus a bunch of embroidery thread, as I wanted to try giving embroidery a go for the skirt/bodice details (though I may still paint them on depending...)

4th December 2013

Wig/Contact Test

Finished sewing the blonde into my Anna wig~! So i tested it out, I'll have to figure out how to wrap some of the hair around the base of the pig tails like she has in her design~
