My Rapunzel Costume for MNSSHP-FINISHED! Pg 3

Hello! I am new to this board

First, I hope this is the correct section. It seemed the most appropriate to what I am posting but I could be wrong.


Anyways, DBF and I are going to MNSSHP (Probably October 30th, but we aren't sure yet. There are 5 of them during our trip!)

I am going to go as Rapunzel from Tangled. If I have time to make it, I will make him a costume so that he can be Flynn Ryder

Anyways, this is us:





This is Rapunzel's dress:





This is my progress so far:



The fabric is just cut out and pinned together. I haven't sewn a stitch yet! That is today's project, to start sewing.

This is a closeup on the fabric:



The pink flower printed fabric wasn't what I wanted, it's too pink and not enough purple and I used exactly the same fabric on the skirt panel and the bustier, but it was the best I could do after spending at least 10 hours in different fabric stores (I went to five of them! Two JoAnn's and 3 separate independent stores...I didn't shop online because I wanted to see and feel the fabric in person, and requesting a sample would have taken too long) In the end, it's not like I am competing in some fancy costume competition where my fabric choice will be scrutinized so I'm not too worried about it. I'm just sad it isn't very purple! lol!



For the wig, I bought four separate wigs and am going to attempt a tutorial I found on the internet for making a wig for the braided version of her hair that she wears in the end of the movie.


This is the wig, all four exactly the same one:

This is what I am going to do with the wigs:






Anyways that's all I have for now! I look forward to posting my progress!

Since my last post...

Well my last post was only 4 hours ago but this is what I have done since then:



The skirt is almost done. I need to shorten it, add lace to the hem, and I will do embroidery last, depending on how much time I have when I finish everything else.

Awesome job! The fabic I think is very pretty... and it goes well together! I am sure no one will mistake you for another character or say "hey that's not the fabric in the movie!"

It looks super awesome! And you seem to be having fun with it! That's all that matters

Also, DBF will make a great Flynn Rider. He has Flynn's eyes!

You both look fantastic! I'd love to know *see the instructions* how you made the wig.

Thank you! Here is the tutorial I used: http://echoing-artemis.deviantart.co...al-1-205175201

It was expensive and time consuming to make the wig, but it was fairly easy. I'm crafty but it was my first time doing a wig.

Thank you! If I were to make these costumes to sell they would take about 3 months each and I would have to charge over $1,000.00 to make it worth my while for both materials and the time it takes to make so I don't think that would be possible but I appreciate the compliment

Thank you everyone for the nice replies...I can't wait until it is done either, lol! I went to my parent's house to get the wigs yesterday and OMG THEY ARE HORRIBLE! They were NOT the color of the picture, they were this awful yellow/orange color and I sure am lucky the seller takes returns because there is NO WAY they will work for this costume. I contacted another seller on ebay and asked if they could give me a small price break since I want to purchase 5 wigs from them. The color is MUCH better, but the wig isn't as long and looks a little thinner so I would need an extra wig.



This is the wig I am looking at...see how you can see the lacing in the wig? It shouldn't be a big deal since I will have 5 of them with plenty of fibers to cover up any bald spots, and a huge amount of fake flowers to also fill in. I am just in PANIC MODE right now, totally freaking out...

There are other wigs that I like better but I need to buy from somebody in the US so that I can be sure it won't get caught up in customs and take forever to ship, and I also need to keep the price under $80. I am already temporarily out $80 from the last round of wigs I bought. It will be refunded once I return them but that's going to be a couple weeks


AHHH...lol I am totally freaking out here.



I might get this one. It would put me over my budget by about $20 but hey 20 bucks is 20 bucks...I can deal without it. I will go to the grocery store today and cash in all my change at the change machine so I can buy my wigs today, LOL.

I hope these ebay sellers write back to me soon. I am leaning more towards the second wig, but the seller doesn't say anything about combined shipping and they want $7 for each wig...I asked if they could do the $10 flat rate priority mail box. That way I know I will have it this weekend or the beginning of next week. I am really freaking out here! LOL
