Rapunzel from Tangled

Character Name: Rapunzel

Character Series: Tangled

Completed: September, 2012

About this Costume: Oh my god, I can’t tell you how much I love Rapunzel. As soon as I saw the first early sketches of her, I knew I wanted to cosplay her. When the movie came out and I saw her personality, I loved her all the more! Construction-wise, this costume was a nightmare and a real pain. The bodice is hand painted with a stenciled design and fully boned and lined. The sleeves are a stretch sheer and embroidered with a design that I designed. The sleeve stripes are hand sewn onto the sleeves. The overskirt is entirely embroidered and a pink shimmer trim outlines the skirt. It is fully lined. The underskirt is a custom printed fabric in cotton silk that is attached to the white slip that is made of cotton sateen. Both layers are french seamed. The reason the underskirt doesn’t match the overskirt is because the custom printed fabric I ordered for the top layer unfortunately came in a wrong color. I plan on remaking this layer when I remake the bodice. The wig is three individual pieces sewn onto the top wig. All of the wigs were from Arda wigs. (1 Le Tigre Long + 5 packs of Extensions) All in all I really want to remake this costume, because round one was not good enough for my tastes and my love of Rapunzel!
