Cosplayer Ambrosia > Costume of Giselle (Enchanted)
About this Costume
- Construction Details:
In 2007, I fell in love with Enchanted and all it's ridiculousness, and decided to crank out the wedding dress in 2 weeks after opening weekend. I had VERY limited reference images and had to travel by train to NYAF, so I made it smaller in skirt size and made a corset for the top portion, so the entire costume could be detachable from the waist down. Big thanks to Marty, who also assisted me in a hand-sewing appliqué marathon until 3am Friday night. Never forget.
- Personal Thoughts:
- After the screen-accurate dress was put in exhibitions, I realized how inaccurate mine actually was, so I ended up remaking it in 2008. That aside, I was insanely proud of this costume after I initially finished it. The reception was greater than any other costume I'd made in the past, I made a ton of little girls very happy, and I got to take photos in Times Square while it was still open to traffic. Not bad for something thrown together in 2 weeks.
