I got some people asking me for one and so I made one I hope this helps someone. ^^ please feel free to message me about how I did stuff I am cool with sharing cosplay info. I know some cosplayers tend to keep there "secrets" I don't believe in that.
For the Cape I would recommend looking at upholstery velvet (thats what I used), Really its up to you and how much you are willing to spend. try and go for something that is sturdy and wont fray but can be washed easily. Try a woven material or even a fleece. If you look at the back of the simplicity coronation pattern for Elsa they will have some sugestions as well. I would avoid silk and shiny materials they dont really look nice on camera with a flash. I hope that was helpful
the lining hmmmm sorry I bought this fabric a year ago so its hard to remember. it was 2$ a meter super cheap stuff I think it was just called "lining" in the fabric store. its like a stiff thin material. Try looking for waterproof lining. its for sure not silk :s best to just browse your fabric stores lining selection.
I also forgot to ask what material you used for the dress as well, I'm quite new to making clothing, in fact this is my first dress, so I don't know what to use for something like that. I'm thinking maybe satin? Or is it a wool based fabric?
yay! Im glad you found it helpful! I ran into some issues asking others for help on my ice dress cosplay and it was very discouraging when I got negative replies. Im more then happy to share my methods. Cosplay is about fun
Exactly! The cosplay community has become so selfish and competitive that most people have forgotten about the fun part of the process and that making the costume is half the fun! So again, thank you so much for these tutorials! They're definitely going to be used for my future coronation Elsa
Yes so true its very unfortunate, I guess the idea of becoming an internet celebrity goes to peoples heads.
Also I should let you know that the amount of fabric I used on the cape goes with my height. I'm 5'10. so If you are shorter you probably wouldn't need as much. Unless you really want a dramatic long cape.
Ohh ok, gotcha. Thank you for letting me know! I'll keep that in mind when I get my fabric And thank you so much for the watch! It's probably going to be a while before I get to making Elsa, but when I do I hope you like it
I'm not saying people HAVE to use 3.5 meters they can use less if they want. I just did this up because so many people were asking how I made my cape and this is how I made it, alter it as you will, and yes my cape is quite long but I like it.
I must of did something wrong. Arda doesn't have a tutorial on how to remove a clip. As I'm trying to attach the twisted braid to the wig, the top part (where the clip was) doesn't stay tight and untwists. Plus the top looks horridly too big, like it makes no sense to be seen. And I'm not sure what you mean by sewing it to underneath the wig, do you mean under as in below, or under as in on the inside?
