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

I LOVE your dress so far and I'm incredibly jealous! I think you should carry a frying pan... LOL!

Please keep us updated on your progress as you work on the costume. I would love to see the final look.

There's nothing I love more than the marriage of Disney+sewing!

It's beautiful! I can't wait to see how it looks when you're finished. Such a creative idea with combining the 4 wigs.

Thanks for the encouragement and kind words everybody!

I did some more this week. I have a good portion of the top done! Here it is so far:



All in all it is coming along nicely...


This is what I have left to do:

Top: Sew lace on the bottom, re-do some of the eyelets, attach the long sleeves

Skirt: Shorten and hem it, decide what I am going to do for the design (embroider or fabric paint...embroidery would be nicer but I don't know if I have the patience lol!)

I also need to make the petticoat.


I started working on some parts for the wig but I need my main four wigs to come in the mail before I can really go to town on that part of the project, lol!


I haven't got any shoes yet...she doesn't wear shoes in the movie so it's all up to me! Whoo!

I was thinking pink ballet flats.

They have these at Target:

Hello! I have an update, whoo!

I've been workin' pretty hard on my costume.

The top is mostly finished, right now I am just sewing on the long sleeves-but besides that it is DONE! Whoo! I need to iron it though, because I accidentally sewed some of the boning backwards and it is wonky lol...hopefully ironing fixes it, or I will have to re-do that part!



I also took apart the entire skirt last night, and added two panels to it. I thought it was too "stiff" and not "flowy" enough. And, I also found this lacy fabric that was the exact same color as the purple satin I used. So, I bought that and layered it on top of the contrasting layer on the skirt. I'm really happy about this, because now it is more accurate to her dress! Whoo! As you can see in the pictures of her dress, the fabric on the skirt is a bit darker than on her shirt. Now it's not completely the same color...


I get to work on the wig soon too They all came in the mail yesterday. I had them shipped to my parents house, though, because I have two kittens...and trust me....it's hard enough trying to SEW with kittens around. I don't want to think about the destruction they would cause when they see 4 wigs hanging around LOL. So I will be working on that at my parents house when I visit them...


Anyways this is the back...you can see the lace and buttons and zipper lol.
