Anna Cosplay Refs and Help!

CORONATION DRESS

A green, black and pale green(s) bodice dress. It’s a sleeveless dress with the straps being green with paler green lace. The skirt seems to be a box pleat? skirt in several shades of green with embroidery. The bodice is black bordered in gold. 

Worn beneath is a white petticoat and tights. The shoes are black slippers but i haven’t found refs for it’s designs. Worn with a lotus gold pendant on black ribbon. Before she changes her outfit, she wears a green cape with embroidery around the neck and with a pale blue bow.

WINTER OUTFIT

Another bodice dress, but i’m unsure of the skirt style.  The bodice is extremely similiar in design, differing only in embroidery. It’s worn over a manderin collared shirt in pale blue. A petticoat is worn under this dress as well as long white bloomers. Probably thick socks or something as well.

(idk what you wear in the cold, im australian)

The boots resemble gumboots in their design and material. It’s has a gold pattern of swirls, the soles are pink/magenta.

Worn over everything is a dark pink/magenta cape in two pieces. It’s bordered in darker pink felt? with a matching pompom trim. The cape his a high collar and it’s clasped with two silver hearts. She wears a pink and white fur bonnet with no obvious means of keeping it on her head. It matches the cape in colour and border. 

Blue mittons finishes the outfit.

TROLL WEDDING

Same outfit, remove the cape, (even though she wears it beneath in the movie it might get too hot. You need moss/grass coloured fabric such as felt or velvet or even artifical grass. I’ve only seen the one cosplay and I still don’t know how they did it. If it;s a fabric , fabric paint might work in darking or lightening the colour.

Around the neck and collar are purple the pink gemstones of various shapes and sizes. They match the ones on the headdress. You can buy gemstones in stands, you want something light, so if you can create molds that would be perfect, otherwise idk.

Artifical plant leaves would work well for the headdress.

Tutorials: 1, 2, 3.

Gemstones: 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10, 11, 12, 13, 14, 15.

SUMMER DRESS

Matches the winter dress in basic design. The pale green/grey bodice has straps and the whole thing is bordered in light green. It has military like straps across the chest. It’s worn over a white/cream high collared top bordered in pale blue. It has hearts as it’s clasped like the winter coat.

The skirt is a darker green with embroidery around the hem. She wears white tights, a petticoat and high heeled boots.

vicious-cosplay:

This document is a compare and contrast sheet that shows the prices used by CosplaySupplies.com on the cost of their thermoplastics - Wonderflex, Worbla, and Fosshape.

It totals up the area of the sheets sold, as well as gives you cost per inch depending on price. By narrowing it down by cost per inch, you can really compare what is the better ‘deal’ for what you’re looking for, or wanting to bulk up on.

This is by most recent prices, updated- uh- today. 

(PS: Wonderflex World is almost half the cost per yard for Wonderflex and both sizes of Fosshape)

(PSS: I like excel sheets)
