My very first western cosplay! THE SWAN PRINCESS!!!!!!! GAAAHHH I loved this movie as a kid! When I was like, 7 years old I used to pretend I was Odette. x3 Now I can be, I guess??? HEEE~ XD
This costume didn't take long to make at all (again) only 2 days. Although I hardly had to do anything on the second day, it was pretty well done. :/ The first day just ate up my whole evening, but I had lots of fun making this dress. ^__^
One thing that WASN'T fun about making this dress was making the dress. LOL that doesn't make much sense I know! (After saying I had lots of fun making this cosplay) It was fun after getting though the hard parts. The hard parts? MAKING THIS DRESS ON --MYSELF-- AND WITHOUT A PATTERN TO GO BY! **SCREAMS!** I don't have a mannequin. So I had to measure it on something, lol. I figured it out though, even though it gave me a headache. (really.) :P
I had to redo the sleeves two times. The first time I couldn't get them to go 'poofy' at all. (such a big waste of fabric!!! and $$$!!! *sobs sobs*) But the second time I got the right amount of 'poofiness'. and I'm glad, because I hardly had any of that material left! Poofy sleeves like Odette's take up a CRAP LOAD of fabric!!!
So yep... I know it would have been far easier if I had a pattern to go by, but I didn't. :( Teehee? but I still did it, AND DARN I'M PROUD OF IT!!! >W< RAWR!
The total cost for this costume was a little bit more than what I wanted to spend: $39.
That's also inclued with a new wig I bought. I was hoping to only spend $33 in total, but I went and bought a material that I REALLY liked at a fabric store. (the green material) and since it was new it cost me more.
The white material I bought at my favorite thrift store, it's lovely! and was only $4.50, which I used up for the whole dress.
The wig I bought new off of ebay (my first time buying from there!) and cost me $28. I like it a lot. :) I'll def reuse it for other cosplays I have planned out.
I love this cosplay.~ And lookie look, it's not Final Fantasy. HEEHEEHEE! XD *hyper* I think I'm getting mighty annoying now, so I'll stop typing here. Take care~
