Regal Queen Elinor Costume from Brave

The majority of cosplayers who make costumes from Pixar’s Brave choose Merida. Though Merida’s costumes and hair do provide a challenge so does Queen Elinor’s green dress. In non-bear from, Elinor wears an elegant gown flecked with gold and accessorized with a large belt. And her long hair is just as tricky to figure out as Merida’s curls. Symphonia Cosplay recently finished an Elinor costume, and it’s positively gorgeous. The dress took her almost six months to make, and she also made the belt and crown as well as assembling and styling the wig.

The crown was made from Worbla and linoleum plate, and Symphonia used Worbla for the belt too:

For the belt I used foamed rubber as a base and covered it with worblas finest art from Cast4Art. It was perfect for this accessory, because I didn’t want it to be completely smooth. So I only put on 3 layers of gesso to remind a structure.

The wig is a long beast. Here’s how she assembled it:

I started with 2 wigs and one white strip of braid, which I colored grey.
I unpacked one wig completely and some hair strips from the other wig, which was provided to be the basic wig. I filled the backpart to get a parting and covered two long pillows with the rest of the hair, for the pigtails. After that I sewed them together, styled the wig and braided the colored bias tape in. Sounds quickly to do… and took about 15 hours.
