Cosplayer Fire Lily > Costume of Princess Aurora from Sleeping Beauty
About this Costume
- Construction Details:
- I have been wanting to make this costume forever!!!!!!! And I finally did!
Dress is made using satin, stretch satin, satin tafetta, and Peau de Soie. I really liked the idea Pikmin Link and several other cosplayers had about making the sleeves out of stretch material for a closer fit. I also made a corset of satin tafetta, gold flossing, and 26 steel bones to obtain a cinched waist and get a better shape for the costume. The bodice looks a little wrinkly, but that's because it is non-stretchy and very form fitting.
The petticoat is blue organza ruffles with a white cotton overlay. I made the crown and necklace out of Wonderflex and craft foam. I already owned the shoes and the wig and just touched up on the styling. A big thank you goes to Allen Ryde for the idea of underarm gussets - it definitely helped my arm mobility!
