Gorgeous Cosplay of Cinderella’s Ball Gown Made from 100 Yards of Fabric
Disney’s recent live-action adaptation of Cinderella gave the character a new ball gown that’s more elegant than the one featured in the 1950 animated film. The dress is so gigantic it looks like it floats across the ground, and that movement is key to having the dress look like a magical dream instead of a giant pouf of cotton candy. All the little details like the shimmering fabric and the butterflies make a huge difference too.
We’ve seen a couple of cosplayers re-create the ball gown already, but this take by Elendriel is my favorite so far. The light blue color is just right and the size of the skirt comes close to matching the one in the film. Elendriel debuted the costume at Kawaii Kon and shared some of the numbers that went into crafting the dress:
100 yards of fabric, 3,000 rhinestones, 8 layers of different fabrics in blues, purples, silvers, whites etc. All the butterflies were hand painted.
