Icy Elsa Costume

elsa costume 1

Disney’s Frozen is popular enough that we’ll be seeing Elsa costumes for years to come. Between crafting shoes, styling the wig, making the dress, and adding tons of sequins and glitter to fabric, it’s not a simple outfit to make. Cosplayers approach the amount of sparkle in the outfit differently. Tarah-Rex made an Elsa costume last spring and her take on the ensemble is lovely. Rather than using a ton of tiny beads for the intricate patterns on the cape, she came up with another solution:

The beads on the bodice were hand made by me from Polymer Clay coated in embossing powder glaze for various colours and effects. I hand sewed on 90% of the beads and had to glue on the rest. The cape designs were done with a large hand designed stencil (movie accurate). I sprayed the material with spray adhesive and mixed fake snow and glitter together to make the designs look like snow on her cape. The dress is made from Dupioni Silk and is lined with a green/blue satin. The designs on the sleeves were done with white puffy paint and blue and white mixed glitter sprinkled over top. The wig is a Suzi from Arda with Ash Blonde wefts sewn in for more dimension.

Even with using the fake snow/glitter and puffy paint, that’s still a tremendous amount of work.

I also adore how she modified the shoes:
