Princess Tutu

Last Updated: 01-20-2013


Cosplay completely constructed by me (excluding tights, pointe shoes, contacts, base wig)

Bodice and tutu overly are made out of black stretch fabric. Thus allowing the bodice to bend and move with the body. I choose this fabric to give the costume a rcih stage like look and feel. The under overlay is composed of black mesh with ostrich feathers along the edge. I choose ostrich feathers because they are very light and would not make the tutu droop as much as heavier feathers would. The tutu is made out of heavy knit diamond tulle. I handmade the hoop out of thine metal wire so I would have the freedom to adjust the tutu while in large crowds at the convention.

I bought the base wig, then cut and styled it myself. I used got2b spray to get the wig to hold its shape. I will be posting a wig feather tutorial later in the year on DA.

I used an old pair of pointe shoes that I had previously dyed black for a dance show. I simply used black calligraphy ink that you can pick up at your local craft store and use 2-3 coats on my pointe shoes.

If you have any questions please feel free to ask.

If you would like a more in depth look at the construction of this cosplay head over to Deviantart, username TheRestless88, and look in my construction folder.

Disclaimer: I am a classically trained dancer and have spent a very many years dancing en pointe. I highly advise those who have not been properly trained to not try and go en pointe for the simple reason that I would not like to see any of my fellow cosplays injure themselves. Thank you.
