Genderbent Simba Costume

I’ve never seen a Simba costume quite like this one. When cosplayers tackle the lion from Disney’s The Lion King, it usually involves a full fur suit or a costume like the one seen in the Broadway adaptation of the film. Megan, a.k.a. Galacticat, came up with an original Simba design for a genderbent Disney heroes and villains cosplay group at DragonCon last year. She made a fur suit and crafted bracers and the neck collar using craft foam and Worbla.

I’m especially impressed with how she styled the wig. she started with an Arwen wig from Arda Wigs (Arda’s a really great place to find affordable cosplay wigs):

I braided it into tiny braids, then used boiling water to set them. After it dried out, I undid the braids and brushed them out. In retrospect, I probably should have tried using a flat iron on them instead. I also trimmed it several inches, and used leftover hair for the tail fluff.
