About this Costume
Construction Details:
The pattern for the bodice was hand drafted to match the seams in the movie; it is made with an inner layer of coutil, and has steel bones. Piping on the corset is hand made bias tape from silk dupioni. I hand dyed the corset fabric, and then screen printed it with Rapunzel’s flowery print which I hand drew out for my screen. The skirt is also hand dyed and screen printed with hand painting in the middle panel, to give it a metallic sheen. I'm currently working on hand embroidering the designs around the bottom of the skirt, not sure if that'll ever be finished since it takes yearsss and I'm lazy haha.

Remade my corset for ALA 2012; I made some alterations to my pattern draft, hand dyed the fabric again, but this time used cotton twill for interfacing.
Personal Thoughts:
Love this movie SO much! It turns me into a 5 year old haha. This is probably going to be one of my top favorite costumes of all time because of all the custom work and time that I put into it. So it's a bit of a love child you could say lol
