Cosplay | Snow White (Designer Doll)

If you’ve been following my instagram & stories , you’ll know I’ve been working on the Snow White designer doll costume…when I first saw this costume when it was released, I knew I wanted to make it.

This is definitely the most glamorous costume I’ve made, but I enjoyed the challenge! I want to get a longer wig and style it properly before wearing her again.

COSTUME DETAILS:

DRESS
The dress was made splicing 2 patterns together; Simplicity 1607 for the bodice and Simplicity 2442 for the skirt. I knew I wanted a train in the back, so I taped some paper to the back 2 panels of the skirt pattern to add about 18″ of length at the very back, and tapered it up to reach the length of the original pattern.

SLEEVES
The sleeves are flutter sleeves! Basically, you take an existing sleeve pattern and cut upwards towards the top. Then you fan out the strips and create a new, wider pattern by drawing around the old pattern.

The red shapes were added using heat n’ bond, and I stitched around them.

TRAIN
I used the same pattern for the train as I did the dress, and used 3 panels of it (back and 2 sides) so it would flow on top of the dress. It’s double-sided red satin and pressed at the sides. I used 10mm rhinestones up the sides and on the seams, and filled in with 5mm.

WRAP
For the wrap, I used fur left over from by Belle costume for one side, and the cream satin for the other. It’s a simple rectangle, and I added some of the 10mm rhinestones on the fur side for sparkle (which unfortunately you can’t really see…).

Do you collect Disney Designer Dolls? I didn’t know much about them before seeing this Snow White doll, but now I’m really interested!

Cosplay | Princess Peach – Mario Odyssey

Have any of you played Mario Odyssey?? I sadly don’t have a Switch (or plan on purchasing one) but that doesn’t stop me from loving all of Peach’s new outfits! One of my favorites is her cute travel skirt/blouse/hat combo, which of course I had to make :)

I think I had the most fun eating these delicious Knead Donuts!

This costume is mostly a closet cosplay, but details are below! I had all the fabric I needed for the skirt and scarf already, which made the idea of this costume appeal to me all the more.

COSTUME DETAILS:

HAT
I bought this hat on amazon and sewed some leftover pink belt fabric as trim.

BLOUSE
I bought this blouse.

SUNNIES
here!

SCARF
I sewed this by creating a really long rectangular shape with angled edges. I dipped the end of a pencil in white fabric paint to create the polka dot pattern.

BELT GEM
I 3d printed the gem and painted it pink. I added glitter into the clear top coat, and added white shading on the edges for a bit of a cartoon look. It just pins onto the skirt.

SKIRT
I used my favorite skirt pattern, Simplicity 1369 as the base but added in 2 extra panels for volume. The waistband is in a contrasting color and there’s a petticoat underneath to make the volume show.

SHOES
These aren’t entirely accurate to what Peach wears (she wears white heels), but they’re my go-to comfy and foot-friendly Clark’s wedges :)

WIG
This is my third Peach wig! :) I used Luthien Classic from Arda in Light Blonde as my base. The bangs were sectioned into three parts to mimic her front and 2 side pieces. The front of the bangs were teased up and smoothed down, cut to shape into a point. Her bangs are almost heart-shaped, so I tried to keep that in mind. The two side pieces were curved towards her head and also made into points. I used lots of hairspray to keep them all together!

GOLDEN MUSHROOM
This is my original mushroom from years ago, and I made a tutorial!

I can’t wait to make other Peach outfits from Mario Odyssey. Which of her new looks is your favorite?

Cosplay Breakdown | Lifeguard McCree (Overwatch)

I really wanted to get this post up before the Overwatch Summer Games ended, and I did! \o/

I started Lifeguard McCree earlier in the summer as a fun little project since I had most of the materials needed to complete this.

Also – the hat was so small, it wouldn’t stay on my head! That’s why in all of these, I had to hold the hat on so it wouldn’t blow away ^^

COSTUME BREAKDOWN:

ARM
To be honest, I followed my own McCree arm tutorial that I made for McCree earlier this year! The only difference was I added an extra piece of arm to go above the elbow, and used different shapes and colors for the finishing. The rest of the process followed my tutorial.

PEACEKEEPER
I used my 3D printer to print the gun. I found a free McCree peacekeeper file and used Tinkercad to add in the text of “Desert Seagull” and “Guard”. The whole thing was 10 pieces that I epoxy-ed together. I used joint compound to fill and sand down the seams. It’s primed and painted glossy red, and all the details are acrylic.

BELT
The SAMF buckle was modeled by me in Tinkercad and 3D printed. I primed and painted it in acrylic.

The belt itself is a long piece of 1/4mm EVA foam (found at craft stores) that’s covered in a piece of scrap red fabric I had. The foam gives it structure without it being stiff. I sewed Yaya Han’s black stretch vinyl over the ends using a zig zag stitch.

The 2 water bottles were purchased on amazon.

TOWEL
I created a print and bought a wall hanging off my redbubble!

BACKPACK
The backpack is a simple rectangle of red with a black border at the bottom. It’s sewn together at the sides and bottom, and I added a simple flap that velcros closed. The “cross” is ironed on using heat n’ bond.

Honestly, I was a bit intimidated to share these photos since I don’t ever really share anything of me in a bathing suit, but it’s summer and I really like this costume :) McCree isn’t my favorite summer skin (I LOVE DVa and Roadhog!) but I do love McCree! Which of the summer games skins is your favorite?

Cosplay | Cruiser DVa

Here’s a costume that I forgot I made…Cruiser DVa! I made her last year right when she was announced, for the Overwatch anniversary event. These photos were all shot at Connecticon 2017 by Tactful Cactus Photo.

COSTUME DETAILS:

TOP
I think this pattern from Butterick was MADE for Cruiser DVa…or DVa was based on this pattern :) I used a checkered cotton that I actually dyed a little darker using RIT dye. I also got lazy and didn’t create buttonholes for the top – the whole thing velcros together which is a little embarrassing, but the truth.

JEANS
These are actually jeggings! Much comfier to wear at a con all day than jeans.

HEADPHONES
I bought these headphones as a base, and cut the cord off. I painted them with teal paint and added some silver to the center.

HEADBAND
This was a super simple, long rectangle that I sewed up. I included wire in this so when it twists on top of my head, it stands up.

WIG
Remember how I said I hate ponytail wigs? Still true. I bought a Jeannie from Arda but got so frustrated with trying to style it that I gave up. The wig shown here is actually my Belle wig, which is an Arda Grace in Spanish Brown. I kept DVa’s hair in a low pony, mostly for my own sanity (:

GUN
The gun was a raw 3d print that I bought and assembled. I spray painted the whole gun silver, then used acrylics to paint the colors. I wish I had filled and sanded the edges where the gun is glued apart, though!

Cosplay | Fem Viktor (Yuri On Ice) Part II

Remember when I posted my first Viktor cosplay? Well, earlier this year I wore this costume again to Anime Boston and managed to take some amazing photos!

Yuri On Ice!!! remains one of my favorite animes – and I’m probably due for another re-watch soon!


If you’re interested in how I made this costume, see a full breakdown here!

Between last year and this, I added about 1,000 more rhinestones to the whole outfit. It may not have been a lot of effort, but I love the extra sparkle!
