Good luck! You can do it!
I'm making Cinderella's apron out of an XL t-shirt right now. It was $1, so cheaper than buying fabric from Jo-Anne. Also the bottom is already hemmed for me.
It's not cheating. It's creative problem solving!

Sasha: I got my Rapunzel fabrics from DenverFabrics.com. I can't decide which fabrics should go where. Halps?

http://www.facebook.com/photo.php?pi...8&id=854099811

If anyone looking has not added me yet, please do so! I can't decide if I want to do the patterned outer-skirt and forgo the designs or if I want to use the floral fabric as the bodice/inner sleeve fabric and use the sparkly purple as the main skirt. Remember I'm going for an original twist, not accuracy.


So, for those who hadn't noticed, I will put my two-cents in about the Punzie face character. Her bodice is most likely boned and that outer skirt has interfacing in it for sure (or it's very heavy taffeta). It's not folding like plain fabric; it looks like it has some kind of stiffening agent in it. I suppose that helps it lay flat...I'm sure they did that for a reason. That front tie looks like it's completely for show; it probably zips up in the back and the front always stays how it is. Do you ladies think she's wearing low character heels? Or even flat ones? Because in Tangled, she's barefoot.

@Necro ~ Yeah what you say makes sense and I know pictures I've seen of the backs of some of the other Disney characters all had zippers. So I dont doubt the ties are for show

I think the main skirt should be sparkly purple, patterned bodice and patterned inner skirt.


Okay guys so it's decided that I'm going to do Mother Gothel hopefully for the BBQ shoot w/ Cait. BUT i need suggestions on fabrics/colors and a wig X.x

her dress is like a really dark reddish purple or a burgundy? Or is it Maroon? Oo I can't tell. and Dat wig! X.x

I found a few on Ebay & Amphigory that might work. Opinions?

Necro, Esmerelda is another barefoot character Disney has and I noticed in the parks she alternates between tan flats and purple heels... but I imagine flats are easier to run around a forest in. :P

Sasha: I say go with deep red/burgundy. And any of those wigs would work, but I like the third the best =3


Faraday: Thanks! I think I like the idea of tan flats. That's what I wore for pink!Giselle, but they were flexible, not hard like the heeled character shoes. I need more anyway so I'll head to my dance shop and see what's there.

The only concern I have with the 3rd one is it's labeled a halloween wig >.> so the quality is questionable. I may go with the amphigory one to be safe and cut it a bit to get that edge she had.

A BBQ shoot, sounds yummy. XD Can't wait to see you as Mother Gothel. Great now I'm Hungary! LoL!

I vote for the Amphigory one!

@LDK
Nice wig, I liked the way you styled it.

Ruhi: The Diana wig does look really nice. The third one's nice too. Burgundy or wine might be colors you could use to describe her dress. I can''t wait to see the end result!

Now I need to get to work on my own cosplay... it's rainy outside, so I just want to drink apple cider and read.

Sam- Flats would work. Maybe get a pair in a light purple color to match the dress?

Ruhi- I'm leaning towards the third one too, but if you want to play it safe, go with Diana and tease it a bit to get that body.

Cookie- Hopefully we'll be able to get some good pictures in costume.

And speaking of Rapunzel, I am almost done with her skirt. This is what is looks like now:
http://i272.photobucket.com/albums/j...8/100_6721.jpg
The top layer disconnects right where the zipper is on the side. After that point, I'm going to put snaps on it so it will close very similarly to my Jasmine top. After I finally get the snaps on it, it will look like this, but without my hand there:
http://i272.photobucket.com/albums/j...8/100_6720.jpg
I didn't have any purple bias tape, so I went with pink. Figure it wouldn't matter since that part is going to be covered up by the top.

Cait, I love the colors! You will make such an adorable Rapunzel!!!!


I worked on the Jack head today; my bf sanded it down and I painted it with the sealant. I might need another layer before I can paint it and dry brush the details. It's still quite bumpy and lumpy. Other than sanding and Gesso sealant, do you have any ideas as to what I can smooth it out with? I wish I could like...dump it in resin right now, lol.

I could use some help please!
I was just styling my wig for Cinderella tomorrow when I took out the extension piece and it's not the same color. They're both called color #144, but the wig is dark titian and the extension is light titian with sunny yellow highlights. Do you think I can wear the gown with Cinderella's hair down? Or should I just put the lighter color extension bun on top anyway? I don't know what to do. >_<

Here is the bun color- you can see it's lighter than the first wig I used:

http://www.cosplay.com/photo/2414250/

Here is the new wig I'm using, which you can see is darker:

It doesn't look so bad in the dim lighting of my room, but the pics show a big contrast.
