Princess Lily - Legend by FireLilyCosplay Princess Lily - Legend by FireLilyCosplay
Costume made and modeled by :iconfirelilycosplay:
Photo by David Dunn.

This costume was a long time coming - I've been growing my hair out for about 5 years now just to make the costume!  So happy I finally made this!  "Legend" is one of my favorite movies ever and it's a big part of my childhood.  I absolutely love the story, the music, the setting, the characters - it's just an amazing movie.

I am so grateful to Andrea Schewe for designing the sewing pattern through Simplicity!  It helped make the process of making this so much easier :D  The under dress is made from a really neat slinky fabric with a slick texture and great drape - I am so thrilled I found it because it's perfect for the costume.  The neckline is sewn over with a blanket stitch, and the sleeves feature hand sewn eyelets and hand stitched gold cord trim along the edges.  The over dress is made from a gorgeous buttercream yellow sateen.  The shoulder straps are decorated in tiny white and iridescent pearl flowers, leaves, and rhinestones.  The sleeve straps are decorated with some sequin and bullion trim I've had for several years and rhinestones and gold cord.  The long sleeves and bodice are lined with a straw colored lining fabric to match.  The bodice features hand sewn gold cord, beads, and various flowers and hand cut leaves.  The lacing holes at the bodice front are also hand sewn.  The belt piece is hand beaded with smooth and rough purl gold bullion, sequins, and beads.  The dress also has two lengths of sequin trim at the front with two gold diamond-shaped tails and fringe.

I hand beaded the necklace using bugle and seed beads, and a heart button with hanging pearls, and the earrings with pearls and bicone beads.  The crown/snood is made from a length of flat ribbon wire coated with hot glue for shape and painted gold.  The netting portion is gold embroidery floss and each intersection is hand tied.  I then added some super sparkly gold flowers with rhinestone centers to the front and back barrette.  Not seen in this picture are the shoes - red suede with gold design painted on using glitter glue.  And I have the ring, but it's also not pictured here.

I am so very happy that I finally got to make this costume - it's another mini-dream come true :love:

My wedding dress for my first wedding was a recreation of this dress, but my version was very much an approximation (done in the days before even the DVD was released, so all I had to work with was my worn-out VHS tape on pause :-P ). This is as near perfect a replica as I've ever seen. Amazing job!

This must have been so hard to make! Looks fantastic. I love Lili and would like dressing up as her too if I had a little of your skill.

This is a dream cosplay for me as well, and yours is the absolute closest to the film that I have ever seen! I am overwhelmed by how close it is! May I message you when I begin work on this in a month? I am about to order the Simplicity pattern, and I am very excited! You look amazing!

Don't suppose you'd consider making a headdress to sell? I would love something like this for my wedding

This has got to be hands-down my favorite Lily cosplay ever.  Everything looks so true to the original and the detail you put into everything --- the tiara and jewelry, the small details on the dress like the beading and flower appliques --- is simply incredible.  Brilliant work!  You dazzle us with your brilliance.:D (Big Grin)
