Cosplayer AuroraMarija > Costume of Anna from Frozen
About this Costume
- Personal Thoughts:
- I kind of planned this because everyone was doing Frozen, and I hadn't even seen the movie yet. Then I realized that maybe I didn't have the time to finish it for Katsu so I was going to postpone it- and then right before I was about to do that two friends, LadyAva and Elendriel, both asked me to be their Anna at Katsucon. So then I just had to finish it.
I was very stressed, because I was still working on my Sakizou, and had Lux from LoL planned(well that didn't happen). I knew I couldn't do all that embroidery in a month or less. I can embroider really well, it just takes me some time. So I really started freaking out. Searched tirelessly for someone who could do it for me. Most stores would only do bulk orders, but finally one referred me to a lady with a monogramming company and after going to see her with the dress and sending her reference photos she said she could do it. And her digitizer gave her a quote and everything was great. ...And then 2 days later she emailed me because her digitizer refused to do it because it's copyrighted. So I sent her statutes showing that want I wanted would fall under fair use, but no, the digitizer still wouldn't do it for her. And then I really panicked.
I wound up painting it all. I'd never successfully used paint on fabric before- I tried on my X-men costume, but it was just a mess. But with this I made stencils and painted and it somehow came out okay!! I'm so proud of myself.
