Cosplay Disney Princess Ultimate Costume Guide [ Infographic ]

Cosplay Disney Princess Ultimate Costume Guide [ Infographic ]


What are the three most memorable physical characteristics of a Disney Princess? Aside from their tiny waistlines, I don't think it's a stretch to say: big eyes, big hair and big dresses. Pop culture has wildly re-defined so many traditional visuals these days. The styles of Cosplay + Steampunk + Disney Princess = Pure Awesomeness.

Most cosplayer's value the DIY aspect of creating the costume. How well they can pull off the challenging aspects a costume may behold. The first thing you need to decide when planning out one of these Disney Princess costumes is to go traditional or add a steampunk flair. Both are pretty fun, but each will require certain points to consider. A traditional princess costume will by far be your quickest route. A steampunk princess version will give you more flexibility to add your own abstract vision to the entire look and feel of your end product, essentially garnering more "oooh's and aaaahhhs," but be careful about getting too creative and getting the,"So who are you supposed to be?"

Are you considering doing more cosplay articles? It's an interesting topic, I think - should be interesting from the color perspective, too. Especially when the costumes are all self-made from scratch; I'm sure there's a lot of color etc. choices that go into it... Or, you know, very interesting would be to hear about those people who actually design those character who people are cosplaying as, to hear about what goes into designing the colours for more or less "iconic" character designs :)

Cosplay is a LOT of fun with a LOT of different angles to look at when choosing a topic matter. I will probably include some more cosplay in the near future, there are a lot of great insights all over the WWW on the creators perspective, I am working on looking at getting some topics that aren't well covered in Cosplay related to the color.

Generally they choose their palettes based on the character they are modeling after. So how would you add more depth to that in a structured blog post? I'm game to take suggestions! :)

I am certainly enjoying researching Cosplay (and steampunk) and am really in awe at the people who dedicate their time to it!

It's amazing to look at all the differs versions of each character development depending on someones skill level and/or time they took at creating these.

I'm glad you enjoyed it! Thanks for the comment.

One of the best parts of going to cons is seeing the creative cosplays. I'm always amazed by the creativity of most!

I wish I lived in an area where they put these on, it's too rural where I live.

It takes a lot of guts and a lot of talent to do Cosplay, there is no doubt about that. Though I consider myself an avid fangirl, I don't think I will ever have that kind of confidence or creativity, as I know a few cosplayers around the fandoms I participate, I know exactly just how much work goes into Cosplay. From stitching and weaving and sculpting to shaving off hair lines. It takes a lot of devotion and a lot of time and serious blood and sweat. It is an Art-form indeed, and very few people realize how much work actually goes into it. Most people think that it is silly and nerdy, but to me, it is a medium of expression and a way to show your dedication and devotion. It is difficult, painful at times and time consuming.
But the best part and Cosplay Nirvana is when the real artist who portrayed a certain character or iteration that you cosplay, bows down and kneels in respect of you in public... Which is exactly what happened to one of my favorite Cosplayers of all time, The wonderful and absolutely heroic Fahrlight. Who became a fandom god in the process. Here is TOM HIDDLESTON bowing down to her magnificence as LOKI God of lies, mischief and fangirls...





Then there is my pretty friend Aerith Mon-kishu, who is an absolute wonder and a very intense cosplayer. She actually shaved sides of her head to get that Loki hairline, how cool is that? She cosplays both as Loki and as Blackwidow.


And this last one was so sweet that I just had to put it here, beautiful Lady Thor and Lady Loki cosplayers.


I did not realize that I had so much to say about this but I do. Special respect to all the Cosplayers out there! Oh and btw, since Marvel is part of Disney and Loki and Thor are Princes of Asgard, or sometimes Princesses of Asgard, Thor and Loki cosplay I think qualifies also as Disney Princesses Cosplays.... How weird is that?

Thanks for the interesting article! Tie-die is something we did in school as a kid, but I've never really researched it before. I'm thinking I need to do a tie-die project this summer...
