Disney’s Haunted Mansion Tightrope Walker Costume

tightrope-walker-costume-1

Disney Parks are home to a number of attraction specific characters, and my favorite of them is the Tightrope Walker in the Haunted Mansion. She’s featured in one of the stretching portraits in the entrance. Prolific cosplayer Kelldar made a costume based on the character earlier this year. She followed patterns for the various pieces of the character’s dress and sewed the entire thing herself. The white skirt features a flower pattern that Kelldar had to apply by hand. She said:

For the flowers, I decided I wanted to go with evenly spaced flowers from earlier art instead of the staggered flowers. I created a stencil to use as a guideline, using a thin plastic “For Sale” sign, then marked the center of each flower on the skirt and used the stencil to get the basic shape in place with fabric paint. Then I went back through and beefed up each petal.

You can see an image showing off the flowers below.

View a ton more in-progress pics and get additional build information from Kelldar’s website. While you’re there, take the time to flip through her portfolio. She’s made and documented a huge number of costumes.
