So my Parks Ariel (redesigned version) base wig arrived today- My opinion? Simply Spot ON. The color is EXACTLY right (thank god, I’m not fond of neon red wigs) and it looks and feels real. It needs some styling and some more fluffing- it’s still got that “I came out of a box feel”. So I’m going to lay it out and air it for the weekend and it should be ready for styling next week! YAY!! Now to sew the dress~
I finally got to go to the Disney Store today! The closest one is 30-45min away and I don’t have a car… so I had to wait until a friend was free enough to drive me there. AND OMFG I wanted to buy EVERYTHING. There was a TON of Frozen merch and I was literally flitting around the store just oohing and awwing at everything. It was super SUPER tempting to get the Elsa crown- but then I found the Tink mug on sale and a comfy pair of Men’s sleep pants in AVENGERS PATTERN. So i just- got a Frozen and TLM bad instead~ I really wanted to get the 10” Flounder plush to go with my Little Mermaid cosplay in the Spring- but they were out of stock. ;3; The good news is they gave me a voucher for free shipping from the website- so I’m going to wait till this weekend and order my Flounder plush, and Elsa crown, and maybe the Elsa doll and shirt??? *giggles excitedly*

SO- as most of you know, I’m in art uni right now and time is tight. However, I have 3 conventions coming up: Setsucon (January), Katsucon (February), and Zenkaikon (March). A lot of my friends want to do group cosplays, or multiple cosplays- but given the time constraints I’m worried I may only have time to do one????
SO- I’d like my lovely follower’s opinions. If you could respond/comment/reblog with your opinions and WHY, I’d be really happy. Yes, Rapunzel and Merida are on there- but I wouldn’t be using either of my prior costumes of them. I would be re-doing them from scratch. IF YOU CLICK THE IMAGES IT EXPLAINS WHAT IM DOING. XD
So I met this lovely faerie at Otakon, and let me tell you, she is pretty fantastic.
She’s also been waiting for this picture for like a month.Her cosplay was gorgeous (all self done), and she’s also one of the nicest people I’ve pretty much met ever. So go check out her blog right now, and see her other awesome cosplays and all the fun stuff.
*screeching* AHHH~ says pretty much the best Rikku ever? Anyways omfg this is an amazing person I met at-con and I’m SO glad I did!!
SO- I’ve been frustrated for a long time at not having a Rapunzel crown. I KNOW, I KNOW- there’s a Disney store one… but honestly after having seen it on people’s heads it’s just- not accurate enough for me. It’s too small, it’s a half tiara, while her’s is a full circle, and quite honestly it doesn’t sparkle and shine and look GOOD enough for me. Yes- I’m a picky bitch. I also looked on Etsy and other crafting sites- and honestly- WOW what shitty quality for such HIGH prices. So after a long time of rolling around all angsty and such- I’ve decided to tackle this monster myself. And finally FINALLY have my movie accurate crown. Because damnit- there needs to be a STANDARD set.
SO YES- I was flip flopping in finding a pattern or making one and then I stumbled upon this children’s princess pattern. And while YEAH the colors and jewels in right place- the proportions were so OFF (I’m starting to wonder if I watched the same movie as the rest of the world. So I threw it into photoshop and BAM here we are on my first test print out. Yeah it looks big on me- but then again Rapunzel’s proportions in the movie are so fictional and inaccurate- no one has a head that giant and a body that thin. It also looks big and heavy because I didn’t go through an cut all the interlacing yet, but dang I’m liking it. So- this weekend I’m going to scout out some metal and I’ve already been scouring the internet for some nice pear shaped crystals… guys I’m so excited- FOR ONCE MY OBSESSIVE SIDE PROJECT ISN’T SEWING!! (Oh, and I bought the CUTEST most ACCURATE Pascal plush today- I didn’t even know such Parks plushes existed- they’re SUCH higher quality than the Store ones!!)
My new room, in my new apartment! Finally moved in (for good) and starting classes at my new Uni tomorrow…. ahh so happy and nervousexcitedwow!
The furniture is all painted by me- it’s Disney wall paint colors: “Periwinkle”, “Tinkerbell”, and “I can Fly!”. And yes- that is Disney Fairies bedding! XD I didn’t bring a lot of stuff for my walls- just my Peri/Tink poster and my Rapunzel poster- so my BFF got me the Disney Princess one from Walmart. And it has MERIDA!! *screeches*
In conclusion- no one can tell my room is that of a 23 year old. End of story.
SO- here is my “concept” Rapunzel so far- I still need to finish the sleeves and hem it tomorrow morning and then BAM done. It was originally a $50 Goodwill wedding dress, but it has been totally re-mashed to make this costume~! The skirt and the corset have really beautiful brocade that just SCREAMS Rapunzel, and so in order to show that off, I altered the skirt to be more reminiscent of her movie skirt (with the front panel). The skirt is MASSIVELY long on me right now, so I look wickedly short haha. So it’s looking like Rapunzel will be done by tomorrow- which means she’ll be wearable for the Renn Faire this weekend~!!!! ;3; (Also- excuse my face, haha it’s 230am and I am DEAD tired)
