I tried to finish this before the last snow of the season, but I wasn't able to get pictures in full costume, so here's my finished piece. It was very much an art project, because I don't know how to crochet or knit more than a simple stitch. I taught myself the single crochet stitch when making the neck for parts, and the rest of it was weaving and braiding, it was all so random that I can't really describe the process I used. I'm pretty proud of it considering I had no clue what I was doing when I started the thing!

The original in the movie was made by Maria Dora.

***PLEASE NOTE: My work is not 'cosplay', it is costuming. Costuming is the art of creating costumes and designing a character look. 'Cosplay' is the activity of role playing while in costume, which not an activity I participate in, and is often confused for costuming.. Please only refer to my work as Costuming. Thank you for your understanding.***

I know you cannot provide a pattern for this but could you possibly provide the general steps you took to created it (ie. How did you make the collar, how did you make the bigger braids, how did you piece it together etc.) many people haven ride to recreate this piece but yours is the only one that comes close to original. I am a novice and would really appreciate you guidance so that i might try to create my own.

This is amazing! I can't believe you had no idea what you were doing and it turned out exactly like in the movie. Well done!

I'm afraid I don't, this was so complicated it took me over a month to complete.
