Disney Descendants Evie Inspired Cosplay Sewalong

10It’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.

3We 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.

FullSizeRender (3)The Top Fabric started out with a white background and some navy and black tie dye. I needed it to be more blue.

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.

  1. Love the pictures! It looks like cleaning out the dryer was worth it- she looks happy beneath her “evil.” I will have to check out that leggings pattern.

    1. Thank you !! Haha yes, it was worth it. I would do it again except I would plan for it next time by not doing it late Friday night and by moving some furniture around so it would be easy to get in there =)

  2. What a fun outfit, and it looks like she loves it! A few years ago one of my children snuck an orange crayon into my dryer with all of our white clothes. It was a nightmare to remove, and most of the clothes were ruined. I’m glad your dryer wasn’t too difficult to clean out, because you never realize how many nooks and crannies it has until you have to scrub all of them!

    1. Thank you! Orange Crayon!! That would have been so much worse! I did run though a bunch of white rags that we use like paper towels just to make sure but yeah, I have never even had to think about the inside of my dryer before.

      1. I once had a fun adventure with a green crayon tucked into my dishwasher by some little helping hands. It totally melted and I was so confused why all the dishes were green until I found a bit of the wrapper. I think I got off easier than you guys, but some of my Tupperware retained a green tinge for about a year.

    1. Thank you! I initially thought the tie dye print might have enough darker pieces to work with but the dye was my backup plan. It was clear when it arrived that I would need it. I had no idea the colors would turn out that well.

  3. Oh man!! I hate that it turned the dryer blue! That sounds awful! (The few glasses of wine on the other hand… pour one for me!) I’m wow’ed by the fabric’s transformation though, and the vision you had for pulling this whole look together. It’s just awesome!

    1. Thank you!!! I thought I was going to be divorced… Hey honey guess what? I put blue dye in our dryer and now its blue. Thankfully he took it well and it came out. I had “I just followed the instructions on the package!” as my backup.

  4. Great wearable outfit! Love the flowy tunic, and what a job on the dye! I did not know there a dye product to be used in a dryer, guess I should stay away from it!

    1. Thank you! Haha it would not have been bad if I was expecting it. It cleaned right out. I had joked to friends that if my dryer was blue I might be divorced…then I open it… blue alll over.

    1. Thank you! I was actually worried about the lighting when I took these. It was earlier in the day than I normally shoot so there is a lot of highlights and shadows. I took extra photos and I am so glad I did because I was able to choose shots where the lighting enhanced more than detracted. If I had only taken a few I would have been in trouble because I had to toss a lot.
