1) Bought a heat-resistant synthetic curly/wavy/messy wig.. we all know how massive & untamed her hair is. my problem is the original color was brown-gray-white 2) placed the wig on mannequin head & secured it w/ wall pins. 3) colored the top-half with colored hairspray (orange), while manually spreading/ combing the paint w/ my fingers in gloves. Set to dry (30 minutes to an hour is fine) 4) then i clipped the top-half w/ clamps so that i could manually color the bottom-half w/ Kurecolor pens: orange #215 & #206 (can be found in your local bookstores), but i only touched the white & gray streaks only. 5) i left out the brown part at the back so as to retain a shadow effect in photos & protect my gown from staining any orange paint. 6) next i unclipped the top-half and sprayed the rest of the color hairspray at the back the wig to cover the brown left. 7) lastly, i sprayed the whole wig w/ 70% alcohol in a bottle while combing the wig w/ my fingers, for the paint to set down & smell good. 8) set an overnight drying of 24hours at the most.
I did not dye anything here, didn't have enough time to so everything is manually done. But i will probably dye it the next time i cosplay her again, depends on the outcome in photos. for now this will do, it actually looks awesome doesn't it? When i have time, i will edit this submission to an actual Tutorial soon!

This is for INDIVIDUAL use only. DO NOT redistribute without linking back to the original. DO NOT remove watermarks and credits. You may use this for any recreational crafting purposes, such as a reference guide for embroidering on Anna cosplays or for use of reference in fan art. DO NOT adapt these images and insert them into your own art images, tutorials, etc. without prior permission.
These designs are Disney Animation's creative property, and I do not claim to have designed them. All I have done is rendered them for reference.
Items are not necessarily to scale, so if using for embroidery or whatever, be sure to check your scale! ;D
Also, pro tip: the embroidery on the skirt panels go from smaller (top) to larger (bottom) and there are about 5-6 repeats of the pattern. I will look into making a downloadable PDF of the various sizes so that you will not have to resize it yourself each time.
Information about the designs:
These are the renderings that I created for fun, after having rendered all of the winter outfit embroidery from when I made my Anna cosplay. These are intended as guides, and may not be "screen accurate", but for the coronation look, I kept it as close to the movie as possible and sourced my references from there. Additionally, I included a close-up of her necklace/pendant!
If you use this on your cosplay, or other creations, let me know, and I'd love to feature it!!
