My Disney Side

January 26, 2015

My goodness, it’s hard to re-enter reality after a glorious week in the happiest, most magical place on earth with one’s family!

EpcotWe had such an amazing time in DisneyWorld with my family, and I can hardly believe it’s over. Before our trip I made quite a few garments to bring along (and get a jump start on building my summer wardrobe), and I’m looking forward to sharing those in upcoming posts. Today, though, I thought I’d finally share my Halloween costume.
Red Knits_Anna CostumeI did indeed finish my Anna costume in time, albeit with a little less detail than I had originally hoped. It’s ridiculous, but I love it–how often do you get to be a Disney princess?
Red Knits_Anna CostumeFor the blouse, I used view E of V8747. Thank goodness this was only a costume blouse because it was definitely a lesson in using sub-par materials! I used some super-cheap solid fabric from the quilting section and pulled interfacing from my stash that was either old, crappy to begin with, or both. The result was not a whole lot of fun to work with.

The bodice is an altered version of S2851. Steve and I worked together to guess at a sweetheart neckline, and for these purposes, I think it came out okay. The embellishment is hand-appliqued felt, and I’m very grateful to the detail shots I found on cosplay for making the embellishment much easier to execute.

A final shoutout needs to go to my mom, who not only provides constant sewing phone support and took us to DisneyWorld, but also gave me these boots and the official Anna crown!

Hope your day is magical! 😉

    Great job on your Anna costume! Did you actually wear it to Disney World? And if you did, did you get asked for autographs (cuz that would kinda be the epitome of awesome)?

      Thanks so much!

      Adults actually aren’t allowed to wear costumes inside Disney to prevent kids from running up to a random stranger in costume. I did, however, make sure to pack my tiara!
