Closet Cosplay for Anastasia

Anastasia Cosplay 1

What to do when you need a costume the night before a convention starts? Look to your closet. That’s what Redditor docbarlow did (in a manner of speaking), and she came up with this simple and excellent take on Anastasia’s blue dress from the Fox animated film. The neckline isn’t an exact match, but it’s close and she definitely looks the part. It takes resourcefulness to see the gown and imagine it for a costume, so I’m sharing the dress for the sake of creativity. Docbarlow said:

As soon as we saw the dress, both me and my friend said, “Anastasia!” and then it had to happen. I used my Codex wig, and the rhinestone hair wrap (crown? band?) and choker are both cheap trim that I’d used for my Willie Scott costume.

    it was NOT Disney but Fox that made the film

    LOL. I worked for the Walt Disney Animation Studio when “Anastasia” came out and I can tell you definitively that it was NOT a Disney movie! It was one of the very first animated movies to come out of Dreamworks and, frankly, IMHO it was just horrible. There were a couple of very short CG elements integrated in to the traditional 2D hand animation that looked REALLY horrible; I remember a bauble of some kind being held in A’s hand. They went on to produce some other 2D animated films with that same terrible look, “Prince of Egypt” and that horse movie. Their CGI efforts were marginally better (Shrek was horrible and very much technically lacking). They eventually got their act more together but I think their products have always been a distant second to Disney’s efforts. Their best effort, “How to Train Your Dragon”, was decent and successful only because the director from Disney’s Lilo & Stitch went over to them — the look of the two films is very similar.
