Princess Aurora - Sleeping Beauty by FireLilyCosplay Princess Aurora - Sleeping Beauty by FireLilyCosplay
Photographer: Loretta Frost, www.frostproductions.net
Costume made and worn by me
This photo may not be used as stock without express permission of the photographer and costumer

I have been wanting to make this costume forever!!!!!!! And I finally did <3

Dress is made using satin, stretch satin, satin tafetta, and Peau de Soie. I really liked the idea Pikmin Link and several other cosplayers had about making the sleeves out of stretch material for a closer fit. I also made a corset of satin tafetta, gold flossing, and 26 steel bones to obtain a cinched waist and get a better shape for the costume. The bodice looks a little wrinkly, but that's because it is very form fitting.

The petticoat is blue organza ruffles with a white cotton overlay. I made the crown and necklace out of Wonderflex and craft foam. I already owned the shoes and the wig and just touched up on the styling. A big thank you goes to Allen Ryde for the idea of underarm gussets - it definitely helped my arm mobility!

As far as the Disney Effect goes, it showed up in spades! I was ambushed by a class of high school freshmen on a field trip, got pics with two drunk wedding attendees, and one of the drunk guys snatched my crown straight off my head and put it on for our picture!! Being a Disney Princess is hard work!!

This is a beautiful cosplay of Aurora :) I love the overall costume! You are a talented person. Quick question; was your skirt a circle skirt and how many gores did you make for the skirt?

This is SO GORGEOUS! I've been wanting to make a blue Aurora dress but I can't find a pattern and I can't sew without one. You must be very highly skilled!
