Disney characters Cosplay is a major presence at Fan Conventions (Anime, Gaming, Video Game, Comic etc). Groups of with these classic characters are big attention grabber but a group can deviate from it the characters traditional to make their both fun and a stand-out.
Here are some Ideas of what you can do to jazz up any Disney Princess/Heroine group. Some have been done before and some haven’t.
– Princesses to Extreme
Yaya Han as Mulan
Basically, you take basic design of the Disney Princesses & Heroines dresses and make them even more opulent. You can use beading, fancy fabric anything you want to push it in to super ultra fancy.
Rework the costumes into a chiffon sari. Don’t forget the bangles, tika and lots of kohl.
Put a Victorian spin of the costumes and then add a leather corset and googles.
Zombie Disney Princesses
Shred the costumes, add blood and ghoulish make up.
Hipster Jasmine, Ariel, Alice and Snow White ComicCon2012
Modernize the costumes, add big black framed glasses and a clever phase about how you were ahead of the mainstream or just cooler in general.
– Can Can
Can-Can dancers’ costume are all about the skirt that is covered with colorful ruffles on the inside. It’s a costume that is both fun and sexy.
– FFX-2 Dress Sphere
Disney in Final Fantasy X-2 Dress Sphere inspired costume
The Dress Sphere was the Battle System in Final Fanatsy X-2. Basically the main characters change their clothes and they have a different set of abilities. The group was based of Fan-art by Skirtzzz but given the variety of Disney Characters and Dress spheres the options are endless. What would a songstress Esmeralda look like?
Rework the Disney Princesses & Heroines costumes into mermaids like Ariel. Tails would match skirts, So, for explain, Esmeralda would have a purple skirt (if based on her normal look) and a white top. But how would you add her corset? There is a lot of creativity with the details with this idea.
Instead of dainty and pretty costume toughen up the Disney Princesses & Heroines into ass-kicking ladies.
Superhero Disney Princesses by Heykannaya
Like the Warriors idea the Disney Princesses & Heroines would be more Kick ass looking but with capes and masks.
Sexy Disney Princesses
Shorten the hems and drop the neckline and you can sex up the Disney Princesses & Heroines costumes.
– Haute Couture
Designer Disney Princess Cosplay Collection by Street Angel
Instead of big poofy gowns rework the costume is sleek and elegant fashion inspired creations. http://street-angel.deviantart.com/art/Designer-Disney-Princess-Cosplay-Collection-335017438
– Gender benders
Tinkerbell in more boyish clothes
Rework the Disney Princesses & Heroines costumes into male-ish costumes.
– Magic Girls/ Sailor Scouts
Manon Yapari did a Fan-art of the Disney Princesses & Heroines as Sailor Scouts (from Sailor Moon), this would be an attention grabber at any Anime Con but you could take the classic Magic Girl Costume tropes and apply them to Disney Princesses & Heroines costumes.
Rework the Disney Princesses & Heroines costumes into wedding gowns. I know Disney has dolls of the Disney Princesses in wedding gowns but pending of you own style you can make an amazing gown for the princesses and/or the heroines What would Esmeralda wedding gown look like?
Rework the Disney Princesses & Heroines costumes into Ballerinas. You can design wo get a pancake tutu, a classic or a bell. This would a great group for those who can stand on pointe or just fans of ballet.
If you do any of these ideas with or without Esmeralda send them to me ^^.
