Rapunzel Dress Fabric

Hi All!

So I'm hoping to cosplay as Rapunzel this summer, and I'm having a hard time finding the right fabrics. Does anyone out there know of a good place to look online? And are there any specific fabrics that people have used to make her dress before?

I hope I can find the right stuff; I have a great group going with me who're willing to dress as Flynn, Gothel and Maximus XD

a few ppl have had their fabric custom printed on spoonflower.com, others have done ebay, lots did their local fabric stores... its a personal preference. mine were from joanns. https://fbcdn-sphotos-a.akamaihd.net...55 8782_n.jpg to get perfect screen fabrics, you will have to custom print it. but the nice thing about rapunzel and all disney princesses is that they are recognizable even if you take liberties

good luck!

Just chiming in, that first seller, sakuratime, her light pattern is likely going to print pink on cotton. It looks very similar to mine and I had to hand dye it upon receiving it to make it look purple. Just something you should be prepared for with the lighter purpleypinks!

Do you guys know what type of fabric would be the best? I don't want to pick something too shiny so that it looks cheap in pictures.
