Beautiful Assistant Number Two presents Princess Tutu to the crowd at the Death Match

The Princess Tutu costume was made and worn by me.

Photo was taken by TheBigTog at Connecticon 2009 and is posted with permission.



I made a pattern for the bodice from a bodice I owned as part of a ballet costume. It is cotton twill with a layer of interfacing, boning, and a muslin lining.
The skirt is a premade lycra tutu panty, 5 layers of hand-ruffled petticoat netting, three layers of hand-ruffled pink tulle, and a twill plate to match the bodice.
I didn't have a pattern, but I found ballet-tutu instructions online.
I originally ruffled around 10 layers of netting for the skirt, each one taking at least 2 hours since the strips of netting started out between 15 and 20 feet long!
The wings are yellow tulle over a wire frame, the blue "feather" things are cyberlox over wire.
The wig was, in a previous life, a plain white bob. I dyed it pink with Katie Blair's wig dye and formed the antenna with a felt-and-wire base, pink markers, fiber from the wig, and lots of glue. Then I sewed on a piece of white felt as a base for the feathers. The crown is paperclay painted gold and sewn onto the skin top of the wig.
The necklace was fun to make. I used a template I found on a tutorial online. The glue I used on it smelled so bad I had to use a respirator while I was working on it!

Thank you! I've had many years of ballet training so I'm used to the point shoes and they don't hurt much :)

it is what happens when the con scheduled Cosplay Chess and the MC realizes that live action chess is mostly boring and the bits where the chess pieces fight each other is the best part.

So we had 32 people in 8-character brackets doign single-round elimination improvised battles with the winner based on audience cheers. It was awesome (I won :D )
