View Full Version : Mozart l’Opéra Rock
03-26-2011, 03:21 PM
I'm curious as to how many people know of Mozart l’Opéra Rock, and if any of those people have considered cosplaying for it. It's definitely a challenge, but the outcome would definitely be worth it. I would love to see a Mozart or Sallieri cosplayer... :bigtu:
I was thinking of doing any version of Aloysia, preferably her Bim Bam Boum dress.
A good image of her hair.
My issues are on how to make a flexible cage for the skirt so that it poofs out, yet can pass through doors. Her hair also looks like a pain in the ass to style.
Anywho, share any Mozart l’Opéra Rock cosplays you plan to do or have already done! :toothy:

my friend and i are obsessed with MOR and have attempted cosplaying salieri and mozart XD despite being not even remotely french/caucasian at all... yeah. haha.
there are a few MOR cosplayers around too, came across this absolutely gorgeous nannerl cosplayer once but i can't remember her name!
totally looking forward to seeing your aloysia cosplay! never seen anyone cosplay her before (possibly because it's so challenging) but it would be so, so beautiful. :D

Oh god, a thousand times yes! This show deserves to be cosplayed. And Waka, you and your friend's cosplays are freaking amazing!

I've been dying to do Aloysia, as well! Definitely on my dream costumes list! And like you, I'm looking into the Bim Bam Boum dress but it definitely presents some problems. Like that hair piece. I've saved SO MANY pictures of it but I feel like I'm still not very close to figuring out how the hell it's attached. I know the front is Melissa's real hair as it changes every performance and I'm sure the rest is in a bun under the large oval dome but how the hell the rest of it works, no clue.
And of course the panniers/hoop skirt is its own challenge. I've been looking into historical costumes for refrence, best bet may be to look over the historical costuming section of the forums here. They're probably going to be the most knowledgeable.
Sadly, most of the costume research I've done for this leads me to the conclusion that it's just to expensive for me to tackle right now. There are approx 1,500 mirror tiles from my counting/estimates on her BBB corset and even in bulk, that amount's not cheap.
SO, I may do her black Don Juan/C'est bientôt la fin dress instead. Buuuuut challenges, still! That tricorn. Anyone have any tips/ideas on how to make that hat?
Also, there are quite a few Nannerls and Contances over on DeviantArt. And I know there's an awesome Mozart and Salieri over on the flourm (http://z15.invisionfree.com/beautiflo/index.php?showtopic=338). I have yet to see a bad MOR cosplay, guess it's just a super talented fanbase <3

Wait a second...the flourum? I have two siblings on there! I think they use the screen names rodroralen and Arimaz, but I could be wrong. I might have to make an account there, since I've heard a lot of good things about it from my sibs and I am already informed on a lot of the inside jokes.
As for the cosplay, I've been saving up money that I'm going to use for whatever cosplay I prioritize at the moment. I did look up mirror tiles online and looked at a few prices. That is already about 24$ from what I've researched. The hair also looks like hell and I'll probably request for one of my more talented friends to assist me with that. And as for making or finding a hoop skirt cage? That looks like it will be about $300. So it looks like I'll have to put off this cosplay for a while, which bums me out a little.
As for the tricorne hat, there are quite a bit of tutorials online for making simple ones. However, none of them are quite as exaggerated as Aloisia's. There must be some way to manipulate the pattern to make it shaped like that, but I'm not sure how to do that.
For now, I will have to satisfy myself with the clay figures of the cast I'm making. That might be as close to cosplaying for MOR as I can possibly get for now.

Haha, you should definitely join the madness! Everyone there's wonderful and quite a few shenanigans. =)
I've seen a lot of tutorials for cheap hoop skirts that only come to about 40/50$, they just wouldn't be very flexible so walking around at a con may be hard. Maybe worth looking into? http://masquedcosplay.blogspot.com/2009/09/how-to-make-hoopskirt-for-under-40.html
But yeah, since everything costs so much it might be a while til I can finish an Aloysia costume. One day, though! At the moment, if nothing else, I will have those feather opera gloves! I love them so much and they're definitely in my price range at the moment. $6 for opera gloves, $10 for feathers, totally doable. The rest of the outfit might have to be pushed off for other costumes, though since it is so pricey and I have no immediate plans for a con to wear it to, either.
Theory for the tricorn: Foam shapes covered with fabric and some sort of hair clip/contraption on the back. No clue if that'll work but it's my best bet so far.
Clay figures? Very awesome, I'd love to see them whenever you finish them!
