Whoo! I brought Hiccup to a con! I made it about 2 and a half years ago for the Kansas City Ren fair, but at the time I was using a recycled wig that I wasn't very happy with. XD I recently got a Hansel from Arda, and I decided to bring the costume to C2E2 on Sunday because it was "kids day." :3 I met a lovely photographer that nabbed some cute shots, so thanks to her I have photos of it to share with you guys! I like this one especially for the framing and because you can get a good look at the textures.
So yeah, first photo, so that means costume construction notes!:
The wig is a Hansel in Spanish Brown 050 From Arda Wigs. I only trimmed a few areas around the ears where it was needed most.
I don't remember which patterns I used as a reference for the shirt and vest, but both are made from fabrics I found at JoAnn's. The Brown fur is usually available all-year round in larger stores or at least while they have Halloween fabrics. I also used the brown fur for tubes that go around the top of my boots. The shirt is made out of a green linen-look suiting fabric (depending on the JoAnn's store, it'll be either in the linen-look solids or in the suiting fabrics section. Unless it's a seasonal suiting or discontinued). The pants were from Goodwill, and the boots were from my closet.
I got a roll of leather cord at Hobby Lobby for the lacing on the tunic and pants, and I used eyelets because I didn't want it to fray (I know, vikings probably don't care, but that fabric can get messy so I didn't want to risk it! XD). There is also leather cord top-stitched down around the sleeves.
The belt is made out of faux suede-cloth with craft foam on the inside to act as an interfacing, and it snaps in the back.

This is the scene when HICCUP (The main character) and TOOTHLESS (The Dragon) left their fears and begin to get closer to each other... Even though the Vikings are supposed to be mortal enemies with the Dragons....
Here is the background music which played during this scene: [link] PLEASE LISTEN TO IT!! I'm so addicted to it!!
Before the movie, I had thought it to be another 'Shrek'-like comedy movie, but... I was WRONG!! Before this, I never knew animations can be so touching, so emotional, so thrilling...
...And It was SUPER cute~~!! (Hugs TOOTHLESS)
Oh, oh!! The 3D effects in this movie are one of the rarest, most amazing effects I've ever seen in any animated movie. I recommend this movie in 3D format to ALL who have not watched it. It's really worth it, You won't regret!!
