Progress on Crochet Fairy Costume

I’ve made some pretty good progress on my costume. Is this considered cosplay? I’m going to say that it is. I’m a cosplayer!

I was nervous the outfit wouldn’t look good or that it would look nice but wouldn’t look good on me. I tried it on (as much as I could) and it fit nicely and it’s looking promising.

I’m liking what’s happening here. 🙂

I’m pretty encouraged and motivated to finish it as soon as possible. I also got ahead of myself and started working on the wings. That was supposed to be last. LOL

I got creative with two wire hangers.

I’m bouncing back and forth but I that’s ok. 🙂 I’m going to be so ready for the Renaissance Fair!

Renaissance Fair Crochet Cosplay 2019

It’s that time again when I start planning my outfit for the Renaissance Fair here in Southern California. Considering it starts next Friday, I’m a little late (as usual), but I have until mid-May before the fair ends so plenty of time, NOT! I suppose I could just wear one of my other crochet outfits. Afterall, I’ve only worn my dragon cloak once.

Ren faire Cloak

Three renaissance fairs ago.

I would still have to come up with something to wear that would look good with the cloak but I’ve been toying with a different idea for years now and I’m going to give that idea a go.

I’ve wanted to make a crochet fairy outfit but could never decide what I wanted. I was staring at one of my crochet fairy dolls I’d made when a stroke of genius (lunacy) struck me. I’m going to replicate her outfit.

I’ve kept this one because she’s one of my favorites.

I’m going to go as a crochet fairy doll and I’m taking the doll with me. We’ll be twinsies. Of course, that assumes the outfit will look good on me. If it doesn’t, I guess I’ll be using that dragon cloak afterall. 🙂

I’m almost done with the top portion.

Just a little more to go!

I’ll work on the skirt next, then the wig and will do the wings last. She has wings but I’m going to make us both something different so I didn’t show them. Can’t wait till it’s done. I hope I like it enough to wear it. Fingers crossed.
