• Cosplay update – Elsa from Frozen Update #2

So I’ve been working slowly on the cosplay mainly because I have no deadline! That’s right, I’m not actually doing Elsa for a con, but rather just for the joy of getting back into cosplay! So, that goes to say that progress is going, but it’s going quite a bit slower than my usual break-neck pace. Here are some progress pics from the last couple of weeks of working! I’ve also included some interesting detail pics of the bodice construction in my article on Seaming, Finishing and Lining over in the articles tab!

Front Full Small

So since my last Elsa Update  I’ve been busy working on trying things I’ve never done before, like corset boning, making my own shape wear, and trying to get a darn strapless bra to stay up for more than 2 minutes!

That last one is still an ongoing struggle, but here are some pictures of my completed bodice (pre getting sequined to high heaven), a not-so-successful makeup test, and the cursory completion of my under-dress!

The Bodice is basically finished! I do need to add a better zipper and fit it a bit more at the top, but I've completed the garment!

This is what it looks like off and laid out on the table. I still need to do one more pass with a really hot iron to fuse the stabilizing in the front panel!

Dress Final No Hem

This is the underdress I’ll be wearing for it! I’m planning on attempting a reverse dip-dye to achieve the gradient that her skirt has. Afterwards I plan to do some embroidery with silver thread to give the skirt that shiny vertical-line icy quality that shows up in the high res source shots.

I also know that I did mention a shameful makeup/stand-in wig test. This part… needs work. And as this step is simply lacking, I’m going to include only very small pictures! Once I get the proper makeup down, and have my wig in hand I might make a full post about it!

NO JUDGEMENTS! 😛
