I have a winter version of Princess Rapunzel planned for this winter's gathering in my area. The design is based off of Selinmarsou's design
on DA (I got permission from her to cosplay it). The only difference is I'm going to be making it purples instead of pinks.
Now, at first, I thought I would just do the little cape thing in a velvet. In the store near me, they only have stretch velvet. I don't know how that would work since it's awfully heavy. But then I realized I don't even know what I would make the dress out of anyway. Cotton? Something heavier? Like with Belle
, I always imagined her winter dress included a velvet cloak. But I never figured out what made sense for her dress.
For the cloak, I think there's a decent suiting in purple at my store, but I'm not sure how that would look. I'm kinda stumped here. I feel like cotton wouldn't hang or look right. But what's my alternative other than satin (NO!)?
