Hey guys, how light is too light for wig color? I want a wig that still looks blonde but not too much yellow color. Is platinum blonde good? I was kind of referencing between the movie stills and promo art as well as the dolls. I hate the look of white/silver wigs for Elsa. I saw that Arda had the Suzi wig in titanium blonde but I think that one is going to be forever out of stock because of demand.

Any recommendations on color or wigs? Thanks in advance!

To me Arda's platinum blonde is way too yellow for Elsa. A girl on their fb got nice results using coffee to stain a white wig to get a similar shade to their titanium if you don't want to wait for it (pic related) There are instructions along with the pic on their page.

So, fellow Elsa's - thoughts on cape fabric? From promo art and stills it definitely looks like a mesh (seems to be the same fabric as her undershirt) but personally I'm leaning more towards an ice-blue chiffon as any of the meshes I've found have been way too rough and I'm a bit afraid to trust the "soft mesh net" I found on ebay, both texture and colour-wise.

Um, can you tell me their page name?

>> No.7358826

Depends entirely on the look you're going for. If you want more movie accuracy with the sparkle and translucency, its erring toward glitter mesh. If you want it to have more drape and weight, chiffon will be a better choice for that.

Can you go to an actual fabric store and see the fabrics and compare them to a swatch from your dress? Online shopping for colors beyond your basic Crayola colors is veryyyyyy hit or miss.

>> No.7358858

I know, unfortunately I live in an area with one fabric shop that has next to nothing like this. The only similar thing they had was baby blue tulle which was way too rough and scratchy, it was very much for tutus and underskirts. I just wish there was more selection near me!

I think that anon meant Arda's fb (fb /ArdaWigs), I'm pretty sure I saw it a few days ago.

Ah, I know that feeling. My only choice fabric store is a small Joanns. They don't carry nearly as much as medium stores and are heavily biased toward the quilting and fleece crowd.

You may not be able to tell on the nose part, maybe, but you can definitely tell her face is cherub/round looking...

Yeah, I think that's going to be the only option for me as well. The big fabric shop near me basically stocks basic cotton, fleece, and bridal satin and lace that's never in the colour you need.

It's so hard to judge the colour of her cape too, I can't decide if it's also got a turquoise sheen or if that's just her dress showing through since it's sheer. This costume will be the death of me, I swear!

>> No.7360049

TBH, I'm finding that for such a "simple" costume, I've invested a lot in fabric and materials etc. because I've incorporated so many. My lace front wig and shoes were actually feeling like a steal comparatively.

Anons, I'm making my costume 100% movie accurate and I'm thinking about the cape design.
In the movie, it isn't so apparent (it does shows a lot in the transformation scene, when the camera is showing a top view of Elsa). So I had the idea of using white translucent hexagon and diamond shapped glitter to make the cape pattern. It should shine a lot, still be kind of invisible and give a faint white glow. Good idea? Does anyone have something like this so I can see how it will look like?

I'll test it around next week and post any results if they are relevant

>> No.7360433

Definitely test, a lot of people used white glitter and anons here are saying it looks like drippy cum designs which, I can kind of agree. Maybe don't use pure white glitter but a silver and white mix? Then it won't look so... yea, you know.

>> No.7360435

In the movie the cape actually comes across as electric/royal blue. But such a feint vairent that the colour only shows up when it's layered over several times. Most so when she's in the middle of the storm crying about Anna.

So I'll use really light blue mesh or white mesh and try to dye it a reeeeally reeeeeally light blue to get that effect, and try with a mix of translucent glitters in the shapes previously mentioned.

I was the person who did the coffee dying, I'll do a little write up here because I know things get lost easily on Arda's FB page.

I used a big saucepan with about 20 cups of water and 15 teaspoons of instant coffee powder. You should probably measure how much water your particular wig needs to soak beforehand, which is what I did, because you want it to be entirely submerged. I was going with 1 teaspoon coffee for one cup of water but was kinda running out of coffee by that stage so I went with a little less. I also added two teabags, because teabags provide a cooler colour, so it was just to tone a tiny little bit of the yellow tones out of the coffee (but don't add too much tea because my tests tended to go green)

I brought the coffee/tea mixture to the boil for about half an hour before submerging the wig, and in this time I also used a small test section of fibre from the wig to make sure it would go the right colour. I also wet down the wig so that it would take a shorter time for the coffee mixture to soak the fibres. I left the pot simmering when I put the wig in (probably not a good idea if your wig isn't heat resistant though)

I checked colour every 15 minutes to make sure it wouldn't go too dark. To do this, I ran a section of fibres under steady water pressure to wash off excess coffee, and then allowed for the wig drying lighter. In the end it took about 45 minutes to an hour all up for my very long and thick wig to dye to the colour you see in the picture in the above post.

I rinsed the wig thoroughly after, although a few coffee granules tended to stick in the fibers. Because my wig is so long and thick, I had to soak it in a fabric softener mixture for about 24 hours to detangle it from the dying process, although this may not be necessary depending on the length of your wig .

Brushing out your wig should remove the rest of the coffee granules. If the colour isn't dark enough when the wig is dry, just repeat the process.

My first thought was how much /cgl/ doesn't like it. Goes to show you that normal folks can't tell "missed the mark" from actually good.

The cape is definitely the wrong colour for the skirt and corset it's paired with. I feel like if the skirt and corset were a different shade they might go better together.

I really wanted to love her costume too, but it's just so underwhelming when you see it.

>> No.7368199

I agree.

Fine, she wasn't going for film accuracy, most Elsa cosplayers are not aiming to do direct-from-screen costumes either, but it's the pairing of a darker blue with an almost violet hue with something like cyan/sky blue of the corset and skirt that are wonky. For someone working to build a portfolio and work in design, I thought she'd be more aware of color pairings.

I also feel like the corset should've been made to fit her more. Any time you do something overbust, you really have to spend a significant amount of time fitting the top to you, otherwise you get the gapping. Looking at the side-view, she made it almost completely straight. No curves to fit the boobs at all. That's part of why it fits and looks weird.

What >>7368199 said
>but it's the pairing of a darker blue with an almost violet hue with something like cyan/sky blue of the corset and skirt

Her skirt and bodice are a really light blue. The sleeves and cape are a different blue shade. This is hard to describe but if you go to a paint store and want house paint, the swatches are arranged by colors that go together in various light to dark variations. Instead of picking a light and a dark from the same card, she picked a light from one card, and a dark from another card and they don't mesh well

Love the eyemakeup she did. The lipstick thing looks weird though. I get that her lips are bigger than Elsa's but I think it would've looked better to line slightly inside the real lip line and fill in versus dramatically redrawing the lips much much smaller than they are.

>> No.7368659

I know what you mean, but personally I think the make up she does is meant more for things like photoshoots etc so it should be much more exaggerated rather than try and make it look natural. Her other transformation videos look scarily accurate to whoever she is transforming to but I can guarantee that if you see that makeup on her IRL it would look weird because the contouring etc is so much more obvious.

Her voice is so awkward, why do makeup chicks always have the most awkward voices..

Anyway, I agree with >>7368603 that the eyes are really good but the lips are strange. She should've blended it more, at least, so it'd be more like a gradient than defined lips. That shadow under her lower lip makes it really obvious.
She pulls the Elsa look quite well.

Actually if you flick through the official artbook the designers comments on Elsa's ice queen dress, they specify that they deliberately combined warm and cool blues for her dress. The problem I have with Angela's is that they're the wrong blues still and the cape is way too opaque in shade while the main dress is way too light. Oh and it needs to be better fitted, the top of her cape should be nearly opaque with sparkles, she needs to learn how to do makeup-

I find her to be a super cute girl. Her face, although some would consider fat, is a really beautiful round shape and her skin is lovely. She puts a lot of time into her costumes which I admire.

However. The bodice on this looks really bad compared to her other work and its ruining the costume for me. I really dislike how its fitted, how it almost looks like her boobs might poke out if she bends over. The color and the way she did the ice. It just looks REALLY rushed.

I mean I get it. LOOK AT ALL THOSE RHINESTONES. But just because you put a lot of rhinestones on something doesn't make it THE BEST OMG!

Do I think she would make a great Elsa? Sure. But I feel like she rushed this one to much or something.

The cape should have been a much lighter material and her bodice and dress should have been a darker teal.

Is there a particular reason why most Elsa's seem to be gluing on their sequins rather than sewing them?

I don't have to have the same costume to recognize that a costume is inaccurate.

I stated before I recognize that she's a pretty girl and I like her other work, but this costumes top looks bad. In the past she has worked very hard to make ruffles and pleats as accurate as possible. Sometimes trying a few different options before cranking out the final product.

This one seems like a rushed attempt and I know she could do better to make that top look more fitted to her breasts.

But thank you for reminding me of the 4chan logic when it comes to not having something intelligent to say as a rebuttal.

Dunno, Angela is usually pretty good with accuracy and fit, I can understand someone looking at that and saying it looks off when comparing it to her other stuff.

Okay so it's always been a fact that the girl cosplaying Elsa is bigger than the girl cosplaying Anna. Usually they play this to their advantage (as they have done here) with her playing the older and/or taller characters.

Now whether she's pregnant or not and what this may or may not have done to her body is unconfirmed and subject to debate. No two women's bodies react the same so it's possible she's experiencing fat deposition in less than average places.

Regardless, Elsa's costume is uniquely unflattering from most angles because of the cape. Even for those Elsa's who have used more translucent fabrics the requirement of the detailing around the top of the cape makes the cape opaque. This removes any shape a woman may have (and that's completely ignoring whether or not their bodice fits, as seems to be a prevailing problem among Elsa's of all sizes and skill levels) from near every angle as is more than obvious in this photo.

Now whether or not she's judgmental of other cosplayers I don't know and cannot comment. Without proof, quotes, or even where she might have passed comment (the vast majority tend to have a gripe amongst friends or in what they consider to be 'private' which then often turns out not to be private when one of those involved spreads the word).

But really from all the progress shots of Cupcake's Elsa there is a lot of things right and good and fantastic about her costume.

If I had to pick on someone for this picture, it would be the photographer. Who could see then and there his subjects and had he been more considerate of the result of his craft then he wouldn't have taken this photo let alone posted it online for all to see. Anyone with eyes, and clearly all of you jumping on the negative bandwagon, can see she looks absolutely huge.

Probably was a last minute "OMG I wanna cosplay Elsa" thing. I'd almost rather see someone in a blue bedazzled prom dress.

>> No.7382134

Agreed with most of what is said here. Everyone is talking about how fat she looks when the face characters for Elsa looks fat from similar angles. That is how poorly designed the costume is.

Personally, I don't give a flying fuck how fat or thin she is. If a person even bigger than this girl boned their bodice and used good materials and had a decent wig, I would be thrilled because those three things are what a lot of Elsa's are lacking. This photo isn't taken from an angle that showcases these things, and said above, is taken from an angle that someone of model proportions looks bad in.

Get a better pic, then bitch.

>> No.7382138

There is really no such thing as a "perfect" Elsa, though, because her costume is so open to interpretation. You could use sequins, gllitter, bejeweled fabric, or even soda bottles (I've seen it done) and come up with a unique costume that is special and beautiful in its own way. I think that's what I have enjoyed so much about seeing all of the Elsa cosplay of the ice dress. They are all unique to the creator, even the half-assed ones. I just think it's cute because maybe they're a n00b and making a hand-beaded corset is outside their skill set, but they do it anyway and it's awesome.

>> No.7382228

Since tone is really hard to interpret on the internet, let me state that I wasn't trying to be very critical. When I said "perfect" I meant more to give yourself a chance to finish the costume to your own vision of "perfect". There is obviously no way you can get 100000% movie accurate here so that isn't even a question. Everyone's material interpretations is what makes the ice dress very unique and pretty, I agree.

That said, I was just agreeing more with >>7382107 when I said that the costume looked rushed. She's really pretty and could easily pull off the look but since her costume is so plain, it just doesn't look very regal. It just seemed rushed to me since even the less-skilled cosplayers manage to find blinged up items to put into their costume. She could easily build off of what she has though.

>> No.7382293

the amount of blue hue in a color is what defines how warm or cool it is.
Theoretically, blue as a whole is a cool color, but the blue in her cape is "cooler" than the blue in her bodice/dress because the cape is more blue than the rest, and it almost looks like it's leaning toward violet.

I am honestly starting to lose faith in Elsa cosplayers mainly because of the color choices they make. I feel like the cape should have a gradient instead of being one color, going from teal to a darker shade of blue at the bottom.

>> No.7382329

It really depends on what source material each person is using. There aren't gradients on some sources. Honestly once you can accept that perfect screen accuracy isn't really achievable with this dress and that people are going to interpret the outfit in a million ways, it doesn't feel as depressing and horrible. Since it's Disney, they've marketed the shit out of Frozen already. Their official face characters are in one kind of dress while their dolls vary in looks depending on maker, the coloring books and books for kids look different too, and then what you see for promo art is different from what's on the actual screen.

As someone who trained and works at a small animation studio, I'll also add this: one of the most common mistakes non-art people make is recognizing and interpreting lighting and moods used in scenes. What I mean is someone might see a scene where characters are lit only by candle light/ blue mood lighting/etc. and will take those colors and go make their costume based on that. That may also be part of the variations in color. If you're going to pull colors direct from screens, you usually want to aim for a scene where the character is in a "neutral colored" well-lit place perhaps outside on sunnier day.

>> No.7382364

>Honestly once you can accept that perfect screen accuracy isn't really achievable with this dress and that people are going to interpret the outfit in a million ways, it doesn't feel as depressing and horrible.

See this is the problem I have with Elsa. Her dress and bodice are the same color, but the only thing that seems to vary all the time is the cape.

If I were to make her dress, I'd probably go with Brittney Lee's concept art instead of screenshots directly from the movie, because of how, in some scenes, the blues heavily vary.

I don't really want perfectly accurate cosplays, hell I don't even care about the materials they use since it's open for interpretation, but I do feel like they should just pick colors that match. It could be up for their own interpretation, but it'd be nice if the blues matched for once.

>> No.7382385

I'm surprised Angela's turned out so poorly. I thought hers was going to be amazing and this isn't even one of the top three I've seen. Her makeup looks much better in the test photos and the rhinestones just look.. tacky. She literally just used a blue rubber band on the hair? Maybe our expectations were too high, it's very nice, but it's not what I expected.
I also find it really frustrating that she's gotten so much coverage when it looks like that. So I can glue 100,000 pieces of paper or whatever to some shit and as long as I tell everybody that, it's automatically awesome? Actually not a bad idea, but it's still annoying.
My theory on Elsa's dress is that she creates it out of ice, so it should at least somewhat resemble ice. Joann's stick on rhinestones don't look like ice, neither do poorly cut out sequins (not hers but others) or chunks of craft foam. Why is it so hard to make the bodice streamlined into the rest of the dress instead of a separate piece sticking out? You guys can argue about color palettes and how screen accuracy is impossible but there's actually no point because nobody is remotely close yet anyway.

>> No.7382437

I haven't tested this, but I would think doing the sharpie dye trick with a LIGHT purple or blue sharpie (test it, obviously) would work really well. It's the same theory as using purple shampoo on blonde hair to keep it platinum, the cool purple neutralizes the warm yellow tones.
Also, thanks to this discussion I've now realized why the Arda booth at katsu had nothing in Titanium Blonde. Thanks assholes

>> No.7382471

Actually I saw one Elsa at Katsucon this past weekend that made everything 1 piece. The sleeves, bodice, and skirt were all attached so everything was smooth. I couldn't grab a photo because she was actually in the middle of a shoot, but that was the first thing I noticed, no weird gaps anywhere because she streamlined it.

That said, I liked the one bodice with the multi-colored paper decoupaged onto it since it's all smooth, but then it leaves the bodice as a rigid, separate item from the sleeves and skirt.

>You guys can argue about color palettes and how screen accuracy is impossible but there's actually no point because nobody is remotely close yet anyway.

What I mean is, there ARE things that aren't up for interpretation that everyone is still doing wrong. I haven't seen a cosplay yet where I thought "well, this is good, even though I interpreted it this way instead." They're all just wrong or poorly constructed in obvious ways. Yeah you can argue people are making their costume based on the doll or a coloring book, but are they really? Who would do that? I haven't seen a cosplay that was reasonably close to either the screen or concept art or even one that was reasonably well-constructed using elements from both and a dash of creative interpretation. They're just.. not well made. Yeah, you can interpret it however you want, but that's no different from ANY OTHER cosplay, and some interpretations are probably not what the creator intended and would look really weird in the movie's intended environment. Like I don't think Elsa would have a chunky craft foam bodice or half of Las Vegas's supply of sequins on her cape, any more than Anna would be wearing a latex dress ("but we can't know!! it's my interpretation!!!"). You can argue it's your interpretation of 2d art and therefore can't be wrong but that doesn't stop it from looking stupid. And what I'm seeing people doing are making costumes that match no point of reference in the first place.

Like I don't even get how this is an argument. If I made Sailor Pluto's fuku silver and argued it was my interpretation and they made a doll like that so therefore it was just as accurate as anybody elses' Sailor Pluto, most people would just roll their eyes and walk off. There ARE totally wrong ways to do things, absolutely.
I was joking. I don't actually hate cosplayers for buying titanium blonde, jfc. If anything, maybe they will start stocking more, because before this movie ever came out they had a pretty limited supply.

>> No.7382543

2/2 Sorry for the wall of text, I'm just befuddled by this argument. I also want to add that if you want to make your costume wrong or base it on a combination of the doll and coloring book and your own design, for whatever godforsaken reason, I don't really care. You don't see me nitpicking Angela for doing her own interpretation. I'm judging her costume based on what SHE herself said she wanted it to be, and what it actually is. But it's crazy to construct your costume wrong and then argue it can't be wrong because there's a picture in a coloring book somewhere that looks kind of like what you made.

I'm going to ask this, even though I'll probably get ripped a new asshole for it.

I can't sew full garments to save my life. I cosplay just for the sake of dressing up as characters I like. I'm looking at an Elsa cosplay online that actually doesn't look like complete ass. I'm thinking about getting those translucent scale sequins to add to the bodice, and then depending on the material that the sleeves are made of, potentially replacing those, and then adding the design onto the cape.

Do you think it'd look alright, or should I just say fuck it? I thought that as far as a premade cosplay goes, this one made a pretty decent base.

I've ordered from cosplayFU before and was very much satisfied with the fit and quality, so I'm not really concerned about that.

>> No.7382670

Although most of the bottom half is fine, the bodice shape will look like ass and ruin it, I think. Even if you cover the top in nice sequins there's something about the neckline that looks really awful, maybe because of the roundness? If you're up to replacing the top and cape, and sequinning the bodice it might be acceptable.

>> No.7382676

I was definitely planning on replacing at least the sleeves. I'd have to wait to see the cape because the pictures aren't very clear. The top does seem a little funny shaped, I could probably fix that as well with some trimming.

I can make small adjustments wherever needed, but I just can't sew an entire dress, especially not in such finnicky fabrics.

>> No.7382678

Yea, I think trimming the neckline down thusly lowering the back a bit as well will help immensely. Her dress is off the shoulders but test the dress before doing anything, without an understructure like boning etc, keeping it up might not work as well so if you leave a smidge of the neckline to hit the top of your shoulders and help with stability, it might be the best option.

>> No.7383299

Estimate the area each sequin will cover (hxw) then the area you need to cover i.e. the area of the bodice (again hxw) - just roughly, treat it like a rectangle so use whatever the widest measurement is for the width and longest for the height. Then divide the area of the bodice by the area covered by one sequin to get a rough estimate. I'd tend to order extra because I'm pretty cautious but it'll at least give you an idea.

>> No.7383300

Thank you /cgl/! Looking at girls like Angela and Yuurick (?) with Pixar-esque faces made me really unsure, and this cosplay is one I just don't want to do if I don't really suit the character. My face is pretty harsh/angular imo but I think I know enough about makeup contouring and camera angles to help. I'll try less under eye makeup and more nose contouring.

This >>7383284. I think if you stop with the eyeliner too about midway on your lower lid it will also make your eyes look bigger. Obviously her face is super stylized but big, bright, blue eyes are a signature look. Also, it may be just the photo but are you wearing glossy lipcolor of some sort? Elsa's wearing a matte color if you want to be that nitpicky about the makeup.

At risk of enraging the people who hate the dolls or anyone drawing inspiration from them, I'll just say I looked at the doll for eyeliner ideas. I thought the doll looked so beautiful so I copied the clean, thin, black lines and small wings at the edges. I added some medium volume false lashes too. For eyeshadow I went more with her promo art/movie look with a darker rust(?) color in the crease with purpley pink as the main color. I got nothing but compliments on my makeup too so it's all about striking the right balance between too little or too much.

>> No.7383311

Oh good point about the matte lipcolor, I will keep that in mind. I just used the makeup I had on hand, I'll buy new lipcolor and eyeshadow when I do this. I'm pretty nitpicky myself so have at it.
I didn't wear false eyelashes or circle lenses for the photo, that should help with the big-eye look.

Worse yet, they were the ones who really fucked up a simple costume by painting giant thick grape vines or lightning bolt patterns on the hoodies, sneakers, horrible quality unstyled wigs, 8ft tall staffs, terribad makeup like pure white clown makeup and dark eyeshadow all around their eyes...yea.

I want to redo several parts of my Elsa ice dress but the cape is irking me the most right now. I used mesh with glitter and it looked okay but it was so hard to control.

Does anyone have any ideas on what I could use to get a clean design that's still sparkly? I really liked the iridescent fabric that the Cupcake girl used on her cape but I don't think it would bond well on mesh and IMO chiffon seems too opaque. Likewise, rhinestones won't stick to mesh and I didn't really imagine the designs as rhinestones.

Ok, so here's my first pic. It's the fabric I chose for Elsa's cape based on some of the promotional pictures.
It's a mesh fabric used to give volume under skirts (kind of stiff, but gets more movement after washed). It gets this blue when fthere's many layers of it, but more white-looking when there's only one layer.
I've cut and sewn it already, but tell me your opinions on it.

Unless I'm misinterpreting how to use that pattern.

There are 9 icicles coming from the top of Elsa's cape. The front most two have a sliced in half design.

The spiking at the bottom to me seems incorrect. Though it's true there is a rippling to the edge of the cape and it is shaped in a rounded arrowhead shape it's not zigzagging. To me that just looks like volume fabric being dragged.

The larger icicles around the bottom of the cape skim the edge with the outermost points but they were not cut up or otherwise bisected by the hem.

Apart from the front most two icicles none of the other icicles are half shapes. They are all symmetrical and reminiscent of the chandelier.

All of this is painfully obvious in the Let It Go sequence.

I have to disagree. I am loving the dynamic forehand and fingers. The blowback of the cape reveals the dress and there's a nice arch to her back. Not too extreme.

I confess I have a weakness for sweeping fringes, so even though it's not accurate for Elsa I like it. And the almost shy confidence in her expression.

I can see where the cape has flicked up but I don't know what part of the top you're referring to? There's a dipped neckline and points to the back of the hand. There is some evidence of the snow design on the back of the cape and she's avoiding the scaling technique I'm seeing in too many Elsa's. There's a nice variation to the colour of the pieces on her corset if no variation in size.

Photography wise it could possibly do with a slight tilt or fore-shortening along the reaching arm. Certainly shouldn't have chopped off bits of hands and fingers. Perhaps a little aid in making the cape billow could have added to the dynamic and some thrown snow.

But I wouldn't say this is bad.

I used a fabric from the active wear area of the fabric store, it's a mesh spandex with sparkly shine. Then I printed my design on heavier card stock type paper, cut the design out with an x-acto knife. I sprayed the back of the paper with a light re-positionable glue. Then using a craft sponge I patted on some matte white tulip fabric paint and let it dry, I used two layers. Then when the white was dry I used fabric glue and glitter. When I pulled off the paper it came out perfectly. https://fbcdn-sphotos-b-a.akamaihd.net/hphotos-ak-xpf1/t1.0-9/10382843_10152162013876274_7215208120776899801_n.jpg
