Today is a very special day to me! It happens to be my birthday! I love you guys all so much and appreciate all the love and support that is always thrown my way! Without you guys I would be nothing.
Today I would also like to celebrate #28DaysOfBlackCosplay with me. As a black cosplayer in the community I face the troubles others face as well. Not feeling good enough, not feeling talented enough, not able to express myself or my love for certain characters as much as I’d like all due to the hindrance of my skin, but with recent years I feel like I’ve come to love and appreciate my roots! With each new cosplay I can see a clear improvement.I am able to look beyond my skin and fight off all the negativity and shade. I’ve made so many lasting bonds and friendships through the cosplay community as a whole and I simply cannot thank you guys enough! If you have a passion I say always strive for it! Work hard and try your best and success will always be around the corner! Dont let skin color, gender, race, or anything hinder you from cosplay who you want to when you want to! Lets keep creating beautiful art together!
Please post some other cool cosplayer that you know and love! I would love to see their cosplay pages!
To start off we would like to notate that the design and colors we chose for this outfit are based off of the concept art and what we thought would look nice together.
The bodice is made from the same pattern as Elsa’s Snow Queen bodice. It is fully lined and steel boned and has a zipper down the side and not the back. Putting the zipper in the side allowed for us to place the design on the back without any problems. The top and bottom edging is hand cut bias tape from a green dupioni silk. We felt that the silk edging the velvet would give a beautiful contrast of materials. The sleeves are a pleated teal silk that is edged in a simple white lace. The bodice design was cut like the skirting designs with heat n’ bond and then fixed into position. On top of the detailing we placed multiple sizes of Swarovski crystals to give a little extra.
the moral of this story is I love being Princess Anna
this dress is 100% made by me. it took roughly 80 hours of work but it was so worth it!! it’s definitely the most labor intensive project I’ve worked on. these pics are by no means professional, just some quick shots at the peace gardens before a wedding
Tharja: Isn’t this a little too small….
Anna: No it looks great! Robin will love it!
Tharja: if it’ll help my quest for Robin’s heart, I’d do anything.
Anna: only 3 easy payments of 19.99!!
