It’s Cosplay Week over at Project Run and Play! I had to play along with this one, I love some cosplay inspired outfits. I have made several for Craftingcon. They have been some of the most fun outfits I’ve done. It took me a couple of days to come up with the idea this time. I have done quite a few of my daughters favorites.. Scooby Doo, My Little Pony, and several of my own, like Dr Who. I wanted her involved in picking but she initially had terrible ideas haha. Actually they weren’t terrible just hard to fashion an outfit from.
We finally settled on Evie from Disney Descendants. Evie is the daughter of the Evil Queen from Snow White. She is actually nice, but my 5 year old doesn’t quite get that because her knowledge of Evie is based on youtube song videos. My daughter is in love with her look.
So My daughter thinks Evil Queens daughter should be evil, hence all the evil looks 😛
Evil queens daughters must also have magical powers.
I wanted to recreate a shape similar to the peplum cape coat that Evie wears but have it be a regular top. The Blaverry Finn was perfect for this. I was already crushing on this pattern but I just had to have it when I decided to do this look. I am so glad I did. Fabulous pattern and we will make many more of them. I just slashed and spread the sleeve to have more of a big bell sleeve for this look.
I used Tumble Dry to dye it. The dye process was pretty easy. They recommend heat setting it in your dryer. That brings us to the most difficult part of the whole project.
I turned my dryer blue and had to scrub it out. Thankfully the dye came off pretty easy but my dryer is in a corner so it’s not easy to get in there. Its also an extra large capacity. Its front load and the lid flips down instead of to the side. I was doing all kinds of acrobatics trying to reach all the nooks and crannies. Plus I’d had a couple glasses of wine. It was quite an adventure!
The leggings are Made for Mermaids Bonny Leggings. We have many pairs of these, its probably my most used pattern right now. The skirt is actually the skirted portion of the Bonny Leggings made separate.
I braided ribbon and hot glued it on the headband. She wanted ribbons “coming down” like blue hair so I tied on some additional ribbons. I originally wanted to braid the ribbon in her hair but she was not feeling 100% that day and had no patience for hair braiding so switched to the headband last minute.
This was such a fun little outfit to do. Once again all of the pieces play nice with her other clothes so she can wear them separate. Now she wants a Mal outfit.
