It’s Thrifty Thursday time once again!
For those of you who have never seen my Thrifty Thursday projects, I go to Goodwill and buy $20 of things to make a costume out of.
This month I decided to do Idun of Arendelle.
I think she is highly underrated by the Frozen cosplaying community. Plus she has brown hair, as do I, which meant no wig. Thank. Goodness.
I bought a blue and red pillow case, a light blue sheet, a purple sheet, a black curtain, and a chunk of purple velvet.
I was super lazy and didn’t feel like wasting muslin to drape a pattern, so I trusted my instincts and just started cutting. 90% of the time this doesn’t work…but miraculously this time everything fit perfectly!
I embroidered all the flower designs and scalloped the edge of the skirt where I attached the velvet. The dress closes with a zipper.
The robe had trim of red and blue which I made from the pillow cases, attached to the robe, and then painted the design on.
The shirt is, unfortunately, the wrong color. It is too dark and too shiny :/ If I ever wear this to a con or an event I will definitely be making a new shirt.
Here is the finished costume!
Have a suggestion for a future Thrifty Thursday? Leave me a comment! I always need new ideas, though I do have a Pinterest board chalk full of future cosplay wishes!
