EDIT: This was initially a thread for my Rapunzel cosplay progress. I cancelled that cosplay (Possibly for now, it may happen at a later date), but I have other projects that are cosplay related, so watch this space!

BOO!
Well actually I'm sick but ya know, what better to do than get my bum in gear and post something funky? (I have the attention span of a gnat right now).
Y'all might remember that I attend MCM expo in London every May and October. Last year I made a White Mage cloak based on Final Fantasy 9 for May, and in October I did a FFVII turk one day, me another, and the third I did Poncho Pond from Doctor Who.
Making the cloak in May seems to have given me that boost I needed to want to make a cosplay from scratch.
I got the movie 'Tangled' for Christmas (I've you've not seen it, go watch it, I'm sure you'll like it)
I pretty much fell in love with the character of Rapunzel as soon as the movie started. I've had people say to me 'you should do her with braided hair!'. I don't WANT to do her with braided hair. So. I'm not.
Lots of reference pictures found here >> www.squidoo.com/disneys-rapunzel-costume
So you see there's a lot to do, and it's not all really simple. There's also a flag (Purple with a yellow/gold sun) and a bag being made.
So far I've done the flag, and started the bag. I've also done a mock-up of the detailing on her skirt. I'm just waiting for swatches/samples of materials to arrive so I know what to get. =D
I remember liking birthdays, Getting older is exciting when you're just a kid. But now they're just reminders, Of all the things I haven't yet achieved. << Bangarang - Dave Giles

I'll post some photos of the flag, skirt detail pattern and bag sometime soon.
Yeah ephie! I was really glad I ran across the site! Totally by chance really, I was looking for something different but still related and it came up. Good old google!

Just a mini update with a quick photo of my flag, and the rough sketch of the pattern on Punzie's skirt.

Will you stitch the pattern or draw it on with fabric colours? Will be a lot of work either way, I suppose. Waiting patiently for the next steps!

I'm still waiting for my other samples to come through, of the fabric for the skirt. It's actually embroidered, but I'm going to go with the easier option and use fabric paint. It's what most other Punzie cosplayers have done. There have been a few who've been really amazing and embroidered it on. I'm just not that patient. =D
Next thing I need to do is the bag.

Well I'll have to admit this is looking less and less likely to happen for May.
(FranKo announced a June tour, and I plain and simple can't miss it)
But I do still have the bag all ready to put together.
And I got samples through and have decided what fabrics to get for the skirt.
If it doesn't happen for May, it'll be October. But rest assured I want to do this. =)

One thing I wondered for a while: That dress is quite tight - compared to the white mage cloak you made last time! How do you make sure it'll fit decently? Do you have a sewing pattern or will you just compare it with a blouse that fits you and hope that it'll work out?

Many times the doll clothes I sew don't work out and I have to modify the patterns several times until they do. When I imagine doing more than a skirt with elastic waiste for myself I break a sweat.

Also, don't worry about not finishing it in time for May. I'm sure it will be just as cute in October. ^^

Me and my mum are going to try and work together to make the top part. It'll be a bit of trial and error. And I might have to call on my friend Bexi for help too. She has a proper dress makers dummy whereas I don't. And can't afford one, sadly.
We'll probably use patterns for it too anyway. =)

Have you finished the bag by now?
Bexi sounds like a pro if she has one of those, I bet she'll be a great help.
