About this Costume
Construction Details:
Frostine 2.0:
I completely remade this costume for 2011; gone is the ice blue dress and instead I made a huge circle skirt and steel boned corset using a more accurate royal blue high-quality satin. I made two petticoats to go underneath the skirt, then bought a collapsable hoop skirt to wear underneath all of the skirts and give the dress the proper shape. Finally, I opted ditch the batting and make flat frosting accents which are longer, more evenly drawn and serged along the edges. I remade the crown to be the proper color and attached glass accents for the gems. I also hand-dyed a chef's hat blue to be the crown's backing, a detail I had overlooked before. The necklace was handmade with plastic beads and ribbon, and I got a longer, straighter wig. Finally, my boyfriend remade my staff from PVC pipe which is collapsable for air travel. The snowflake is a Christmas garage decoration I bought which he attached to the top and lights up with LEDs.

Frostine 1.0:
I found the poofiest ice blue prom dress I could find and bedazzled the heck out of it. For the "frosting" I cut out a two-layer circle skirt pattern from matte satin and then drew the dripping edging, then lightly stuffed it with batting before attaching it to the skirt and bust. The staff is a picture frame centered with a Christmas snowflake and screwed onto a curtain rod and the crown is craftfoam.
Personal Thoughts:
Candyland was my all-time favorite game as a kid, and Queen Frostine was my favorite character (followed by Plumpy as a close second). I've always wanted to do a cosplay group for this, and I was so excited to get a group together! We followed the 1980s game designs, which is the version we grew up with and also the first release of the game that had characters; in previous incarnations of the game there was just candy.
