When I saw Frozen the first time I didn't even thought once about cosplaying this stunning girl named Elsa I totally fell in love with^^ The idea of sewing her dress and doing the cos came very spontaneusly but well... I don't want to bother anyone with the boring story of how I came to Elsa
So here is the first WIP picture of elsas bodice I'm currently working at. My mom sewed it and I'm painting it with an acrilic and a special glittery fabric color. I'm almost finished at this point with the texture but I'm still not sure if I should leave it this way 'cause there could be a lot more sparkly stuff and everything but I have to continue with other stuff and aaaahhh .____.
For the bodice I was inspired by the amazing GrimildeMalatesta. I know my texture is far away from yours but I tried my best and for the fact that this is my first cosplay EVER I think I'm fine with the result. After finishing this completly I will ad sparkly little turqouise (?) stones to it and also some transparent snaps so it will have a little 3d effect.
Wow guys! Over 100 watchers! I'm so flattered! Here's a quick tutorial for my original Elsa wig.
There isn't a bit about the braid because I made this before the movie came out and I didn't know what kind of braid she had so I did a simple side one. XD Obviously, the picture I posted of the commissioned wig had the correct braid. I hope these pictures can help you with your own Elsa wig adventures!
This is just part of a larger cosplay, and an unfinished part at that. I just need to glue in some magnets or something to mount the visor in, and I need to add some padding back to the sides around the mouth to cover up those uneven edges, and then the helmet should be done.
I made this out of a children's motorcycle helmet which I then cut with a dremel to shape the eyes and open the area for the mouth, and then I hot glued some plastic from a basket in to shape it further. To get this to be solid looking, I then bondo-ed that over and sanded it before painting it first with red spray paint, and then with enamel paint for the details. The head spike was done with the same plastic from the basket, and I (messily) hot glued that on after painting it.
Surprisingly, the character art and sprites for Protoman.exe is inconsistent with the proportions of the markings on the helmet and the size and shape of the spike and the visor, so I instead used the action figure for references. It saved me the effort of having to translate all that art into 3D space.
Will fit up to a 24" head Currently has no jawset/tongue Will fit 3.8cm eyes comfortably
The doe version lacks the antler mounting platforms; so you don't have to worry about covering them up.
The nose on the resin blank is textured and sticks out far enough so it can be used for the final product; can be painted with any paint that works on plastic, but be sure to wash the blank off first with soap and water so it sticks.
As you can see in the picture, I have a simple light in the front that can turn on to give it a nice affect. One of the columns is a bit crooked, but it was too late for me to fix when I realized the problem.
