Hey guys, thought I'd show myself here.
Long post incoming. I'm going to do a mash-up of Regina Mills and the Evil Queen from Disney's Snow White.
Reason for this is my aunt donating her the dress she wed in to my cosplay hobby. (Long story short, she got diagnosed with pancreas cancer, quickly wedded my uncle. She passed a few months ago.) When she asked me if I wanted to have it I didn't know what to say. She said she didn't care if I chopped it up for the material, or used it as a whole.
As I could -never- forgive myself for chopping it up, I started looking for ideas to use it, and this seemed a great idea. It's a lot more modern than OUAT, but in this case I'm not going for 100% accuracy. Picture of the dress: *click*
Regina things I want to put in the mash-up:
- Her hair (the high ponytail in a big 'curl' to the side of her face)
- Her face (think of eye colour, the scar above her lip, etc)
- A heart made of resin with a pulse created from a light (if possible)
- Style of clothing
Disney things I want to put in the mash-up:
- The crown
- The colour of the dress
- The golden 'rope'-belt
- Her heart-box
- Her amulet
For some things I'm still wondering on how to do it. For example, I'd like to include a cloak, but I don't want it to just be black. I was considering layering a black fabric (maybe with a hint of shine?) with black lace, but I'm not sure how that will look.
Also, the Disney-queen wears some sort of ski-mask like thing, while Regina is often seen with some form of lace covering her head/hair. Also not really sure what to do there.
I want to wear this to a masked ball at the end of August, so I've got about a month ... oh dear...
Also, that adds one more item to my to make-list: a mask! ^^ If I'm going for the cape-idea mentioned above, I'll probably make the mask in a similar style.
