Anna (Winter clothes/LE Doll inspired) - Disney's Frozen

Complete

MCM London Comic Con October 2014

Masquerade Winner - Liverpool MCM 2016


 


Because Luminescence and I are indecisive fools who can't pick which sister we want to be.
So we're both being both.

I've taken a lot of inspiration from the LE doll, especially with the sparkles and how the skirt looks! If I can't own the doll, I shall just have to become it haha!

I'm so happy with how this costume turned out, even if it does try to choke me with the weight of the cloak... it took me forever to source pink wool but I found a gorgeous cashmere blend by pure chance on ebay.
The embroidery has been a very long and laborious task. TECHNICALLY I haven't finished yet, but I've marked the cosplay as complete because it looks finished enough I can get away with it haha! I will finish one day....

Thank you everyone <3 @Hotshotshan: I'll be wearing her on the Saturday of Expo (not my best decision haha)! She won't be 100% complete in time for then, but I'm still super excited to wear her for the first time (in foreeeeverrrr)!

New cloak clasp

Finally got round to making a new clasp! I sculpted elongated hearts out of milliput and stuck them to the original clasp. When dry I painted them with silver metallic nail polish (forgot to buy paint haha), then carefully sketched the design with black sharpie before using a teeny brush to fill it with black nail polish.

Skirt embroidery!

One daaay this cosplay will be finished! But today is not that day... Desperately trying to get as much embroidery on the skirt done in time for Wales Comic Con! At the very least, I want to get the designs on the scallops done!

Frantic sewing

Once upon a time I was good at planning cosplays and finishing them well in time for events... WHY HAVE I LOST THAT This past few days I've been working on the cape, following Adree Cosplay's fabulous tutorial (it's been so useful!), except I am an idiot and have decided to stitch all the trim rather than fuse it on with interfacing... welp

Boots and wig

WHERE IS THE TIME GOING ARG I completed my boots and wig this week! The boots are ones I bought in a random shop in Liverpool. Trying to find PLAIN black boots with a very small heel was surprisingly difficult! I painted the gold designs on with fabric paint (sketching them out beforehand with white gel pen), and a red/pink acrylic paint has been used on the heels and soles. Not that great, but I suck at painting so I'm proud. The wig is a Coscraft Jeri in Dark Strawberry Blonde, and the streak is from a pack of Milkmaid Blonde wefts. It hurt to cut the Jeri wig, IT'S SO NICE. The resulting plaits are lovely and thick though, so it was worth it! (the picture is mirror flipped so you can see the bangs on the right side so I look hella weird haha)

Corset/embroidery 2

Just over a week later, and the first section of embroidery is done, and the stabiliser removed! I'm really happy with how it looks, even though there's a little puckering on the bust (inevitable as I was sewing a flat design onto a curved surface, noob error!). So far I've used satin stitch, woven spider's wheels, and heavy chain stitch. Hopefully now I'm in the swing of it and the big bit is done, the rest will be plain sailing from here!

Corset/embroidery 1

Slow progress is slow! I'm really happy with how it's turning out though, so it's worth taking it slow c: The corset is made from velvet, and lined with plain lining fabric. I combined two patterns to get the shape and length I wanted: Simplicity 1910 and 2757. I haven't added the boning or lacing yet, as I want to see how it looks without first. THE EMBROIDERY oh god send help. I started out by drawing around the front of the bodice on paper, and then sketching out the pattern so it would be to scale. I then traced all the designs (in the right colours) onto pieces of fabric stabiliser and tacked the main piece onto the bodice. Fun and essential tip: YOU CAN'T USE A HOOP ON VELVET! It crushed the pile, causing irreversible and ugly 'hoop burn'. So I hooped a piece of tear-away stabiliser and tacked the bodice onto that. This way I could keep the velvet taut without the dreaded hoop burn! It's a lot more extra work to keep hooping, tacking and removing the stabiliser, but I think it'll be worth it. Fabric stabiliser is amazing. The stuff I bought just tears away once I've completed a section (I took out a piece to show this) with a bit of careful force. I'm going to look into cheap alternatives in the future, but for this project, I'm sticking to what I know will work!

Mittens

I have mittens! My mum very kindly knitted them for me (I did ask her to teach me haha) and then I added some sequins and beads in a sort of snowflake pattern Sparkle sparkle~
