Zeronis Elsa

 

 

I can finally say I got a pic in this costume, right before it went in the trash. ​Photohop and I broke up after this.

I set this photo up in a spare room in my house! I used black fabric for a wall backdrop. I know I’m not very good at special effects, but I wanted to give it a try! Added snow, some lighting, and a glowy gem thingy! I also removed the little stick that held my crown above my head!

For lighting, I hung 6 strings of blue LEDs, which ended up in the garbage when I learned quite a few of them no longer worked (but at least enough for this pic)! I also ended up throwing out most of this costume. I’ve had it for so long, never been super happy with it, and finally pushed myself into one shoot. I did it. Now it’s gone, BYEBYE. But I’m glad I finally pushed myself.

I made the costume from mostly spandex (blue metallic and silver), all of the hard armor parts were Worbla. I made this when I had very little experience with Worbla, so there were a lot of mistakes made as I learned. The tights were a sheer sparkle spandex mesh, and I hand painted on the design which pretty much is invisible in this lighting, but whatever. The underbust corset is boned and laces up the back.

Obviously I used my original Elsa wig, but it was a big mess, I had to completely comb everything out of it and start styling it from scratch. The bangs in this version are also a little messier than my other Elsa. The crown stood from a small support on a headband. I also learned that armor with clawed fingers makes no sense. You can’t do ANYTHING with clawed armor fingers.

This costume was based on one of the Elsa designs by the artist Zeronis!
