This looks great! We'll be looking for you during the party! I'm sure it won't be hard to spot you with that beautiful hair!!!

This is, hands down, the best Rapunzel costume I've ever seen.

This is amazing! My DBF and I wanted to go as Finn and Rapunzel, but I saw the whole wig making thing and said no.. We're going as Jessie and Buzz! Unfortunately, just t-shirts because we couldn't find anything else!

Thank you so much! And definitely say hi if you see me! If I see a mom who is Snow White with a little pirate son I might just safely assume it is you and hope that I am right when I say hi! Heehee

Good luck getting everything done and finding that camera! I'm sure DBF understand you're stressed and will forgive you.
Thanks! I actually found my camera the other night :D :D :D :D It was luckily in a box of stuff in my old bedroom at my parent's house! WHOO! I had to order a new battery charger online though...I paid for fast shipping but I am still nervous that it won't come in time! AHH!

Aww, well there is always next time! I will be completely honest, this is the first wig I have EVER made and it was SO EASY! I was a little worried at first but it was so easy and came out so good! It actually didn't take very long to make, either...maybe like 10 hours total, but that was spread out over a few days so it wasn't bad at all. The worst part about it is that it was expensive to make lol...it probably cost close to $200 to make this wig but so worth it! Are you guys going to be at the 10/30 party too?

THANK YOU SO MUCH! I haven't sewn ANYTHING in at least 5 years so it feels good to hear that...I thought I might have been too rusty to actually do this lol!

I haven't finished yet, OMG! We land in Florida in 10 hours. It is mostly done, I just need to finish some of the embroidery. I will do that in the hotel room.

Pictures to come when we get home from WDW

I'm so jealous! Not of the fact that its Rapunzel, because I'm a dude, and that'd be a TAD bit weird, but of the fact that you have such an amazing costume! It takes A LOT of talent to even attempt this and you have succeeded! This is the best costume I've ever seen, PERIOD! I so wanted to be flynn for halloween but I just didn't have the time, money, or talent like you to try! I ended up with peter pan though so i hope it works out!

Back...pictures!

We are back and had a great trip to WDW! We met Rapunzel twice <3

We had fun at MNSSHP but it was mostly due to the attention we got because of our costumes, LOL. We probably wouldn't go to MNSSHP again because we really hated the soundtrack to the parade and fireworks and we especially disliked the villain show (Except for the opening with Dr. Facillier)...DBF said it reminded him of a "1990's French Disco or a tween movie with little girls trying on clothes at the mall"

Anyways...pictures!!







I liked how it came out except I just want to add more hair to the front of the wig to make it fuller. I think it is too flat. Besides that I am pretty happy with how it came out :D
