Battle Queen Rapunzel Costume

Disney’s Tangled introduced a Rapunzel who was a little different than any version of the character we’ve seen before. She was spunky and overcame years of isolation and set out into the world. Alix, also known as Princess Pickle Cosplay, was inspired by the animated film and imagined a time period set after it. She was inspired by Gladzy Kei Art’s battle princesses and came up with Battle Queen Rapunzel. The costume incorporates a few elements from the film: the color purple, obviously, but also the sun that is the sigil of the kingdom of Corona. Alix made every part of the costume from the suit to the crown to the shield.

The armor pieces were constructed from Worbla. Alix pulled from her piles of Worbla scraps to make all the embellishments and details – yes, you should always save any Worbla you have left over. She painted the bottom of the gem/cabochons with nail polish and put aluminum foil underneath it to make it sparkle. And the shield? She put it together at the last minute:

I made it in a couple hours. It’s super light, made of EVA foam with Worbla handles on the back. Primed with Gesso and hand painted with acrylics, like all my other stuff.
