Oh, and the fact that her hands and feet are TRANSPARENT. Creative license, ahoy.
I do love a challenge! Been considering Spectra as my final costume for next year's Dragon*Con... I don't know what I'd do about the hands and feet, but I think I have the rest all figured out. It'd just be a matter of work.

You could try either a bodysuit underneath the dress with the arms and legs painted to look like hers, or gloves and tights with the same effect. Just a thought

@Stormraven24: Checked out the webseries before work yesterday, you were right, it's totally adorable! This series has an equivalent addiction factor to MPL:FIM lolz

Well, heck. It looks like I just might put off Draculaura for a while longer. I got an Abbey doll for Christmas.....and I'm seriously considering cosplaying her (just because I want to style her wig and make those arm/leg warmers xD). What is it with me and cosplaying blue-skinned characters? xD

I've made a little bit of progress on my Cleo costume, but I still have a looong way to go! I finished some of the wrap fabric, but I think I might have to make some more. Here's a pic!

You can see a bit of the process in the photo. I used painters tape to make the design on the fabric, numbered them all 1, 2 or 3 so I wouldn't get confused, peeled off all of the 1's, painted that area black with fabric paint, did the same thing with the 2's with turquoise paint, and then just peeled off the rest since my fabric was yellow! ^^ It took a while, but it was so fun to do!
I also was cutting up gold, sparkly ribbon today to use as the tinsely stuff for my wig. I'm excited! ^^

^ That is positively brilliant! I'm going to have to try that method when I get around to making Abbey. I was going so far as to have fabric custom printed for me, but that's uber expensive. The fabric you've got looks amazing, btw!

That looks awesome!


Gathering materials for a Lagoona cosplay right now and my sis is gonna be Draculara. There's so much detail work to do on these dolls that you don't even realize till you start planning out the costumes, and OMG the wigs! Not to mention that all the references are different. The webisodes are different from the dolls which are different from the books. XD

Thanks guys!! ^^

Stormraven24 - Yeah, ordering custom fabric can be expensive, but depending on how much fabric paint you need, and how time consuming the design is, it could be just as 'expensive' to paint it. But, if you have a lot of patience and Michael's/Joanns coupons, go for it!! hehe

I'm almost done with my Cleo wig~~~ I just need to add the gold shiny strands, trim it, and make the headband!

I am sooooo in love with my wig, and I am super excited to be Cleo!!!

Did anybody else see the new doll designs Mattel released today? My favorite is Venus McFlytrap. All that green and pink is just epic!

YES!!! I love Venus McFlytrap and also Rochelle Goyle. Have been keeping myself from purchasing anymore materials for Lagoona since I have about 3 other cosplays to do before her, but it's soooo hard. I wanna work on her now. T_T

I so want to do Draculaura, Abbey, and Operetta. The wigs are going to be sheer hell though.

yay more monster high cosplayers! im about 85% done with my whole Operetta cosplay. Im so in love with her, i wanna do all of her outfits. here's some pics of me and my friend at aod as cleo and operetta(theyre more like closet cosplays because we only had our costumes partially done so i decided against the body paint this time)
http://www.cosplay.com/gallery/225761/

Also before I decided on Operetta I was going to make Lagoona and i have a few pieces i want to sell. a blue body suit, platform flip flops, and a styled lagoona wig. if any one is interested message me, i will send u pics and we can discuss a fair price~ all are brand new and never worn. the body suit and shoes are basically the base, they still need things added to them. I would be happy to finish the flipflops for you and the wig is already styled beach wave platinum blonde hair with ice blue steaks in it
