Cosplayer Rebel Cosplay > Costume of Vanellope Von Schweetz from Wreck-It Ralph
About this Costume
- Construction Details:
This wig was my first stubbing attempt, so it's a liiiiiitle bit shoddy. The ponytail is built over a foam ball to give it more volume. All of the sprinkles and the heart candies are made from polymer clay, painted with acrylics, clear coated, and secured to the wig with hot glue. The mints and gummy bears were sculpted and cast in resin, using acrylic paint as the tint. The licorice tie is polymer clay with a wire core.
My hoodie is just turquoise-y mint fleece. The hood is lined with white muslin, and the strings are nylon cord.
The skirt is a double circle skirt made from satin with a heavy-duty interfacing. Ironing all of those pleats was an ordeal. Closes with a hook-and-eye.
My cookie medal is paperclay over an aluminum foil core. The paint was mixed from about four different colors. Sprinkles on the "Hero" side are polymer clay. The icing is a foamie and fabric paint. The "Stinkbrain" side was done by mixing clear-dry caulk, glitter, and gold acrylic paint and spreading the mixture onto the cookie. To make the band, I painted a 4" wide ribbon and folded in half. I used a spray adhesive to stick on the glitter, and then covered the ribbon in clear contact paper and tacky glued it into a slit in the cookie.
My leggings were custom-painted using acrylics and textile medium.
The bootcovers were recycled from my STR cosplay, and are non-removable over a pair of shoes found at Goodwill.
- Wig Review
- I had to add inverted wefts to the hairline and then stubbed the wig with clear-dry caulk. The ponytail is removable so I can put the licorice on. All of the candies are hot-glued to the wig. There are three wig clips sewn into the hairline.
