My megara cosplay from our day at disneyland for Mickey's Not-So Scary Halloween Party!



EDIT: I've gotten a handful of insulting comments telling me that I need to learn how to pose. Just an FYI; this was not a PHOTOSHOOT. This was a random picture we took while standing in line for a ride, so I didn't put any care into my pose. Thanks for the constructive criticism though! ;D

Wow. Like, Wow. This is the best Meg cosplay i've seen.  WOuld you be willing to share your secrets? I just can't figure out how to get the hair right....or the rest of it. Any tips for a first time cosplayer?

The hair was pretty easy, just CRAZY HEAVY! I made a base out of foam and just gathered two wigs around it! They were curly but I have them a partial straighten with hot water :) 

The pattern I ended up altering... so I'm not sure if thats any use to you xD

Fantastic costume! I love love love how the dress drapes! :heart:
If you don't mind me asking, what pattern did you use for the dress?

Thanks so much!! It was some vintage pattern that I dug out of my mothers stuff and ended up altering quite a bit... I'll try to find it again and let you know which one it is!

Astounding! You have made an exemplary example of Megara's arguably impossibly sculpted hair. Congratulations :)

sorry to hear about insulting comments, remember you don't have to  grin and bear it. There's a difference between constructive criticism and being just plain offensive.

Thank you!! It was a super rough rollercoaster ride getting the stupid thing to style... but I did it in the end! 8D

And thank you... some people just have nothing better to do I suppose :P
