Crysta - Ferngully: The Last Rainforest
Otakuthon 2013 - Montreal
Nadeshicon 2013 - Quebec City
One of my friend suggested we make a "non-Disney princesses" group for Nadeshicon, and I liked the idea and was really interested in participating. I wasn't sure if I had the time to make a complex costume so I chose Crysta from Ferngully. I had this movie recorded on a VHS when I was young, and I watched it so many times! It's a classic :)
The wig is a Helios 20" in black from EpicCosplay in which I added extensions. I teased it with a comb, hairspray and a blowdrier to get the poofyness.
I made my very first pair of wings for this cosplay. I was inspired by Lillyxandra's fairy wings tutorial. I used white veil and added glitters all around the edges. I'm not 100% satisfied with the results, but it looks good even so. Next time, I'll probably use the pantyhose method.
The top and the "loincloth" were simple sewing, and applying fraycheck to the edges to reduce the number of visible seams.
