A great legend, and I did like Disney's version of it! This is my princess costume lol. I feel so girly in it.

I used various Asian brocade fabrics to give the costume texture. Even the white lining and skirt are patterned though it's hard to see in these pics. The blue "overshirt" is constructed like a corset, with light boning and lace up back. I also made Chinese hairpins, earrings and tassles etc. to give the costume a more traditional feel. The flower haircomb was sculpted over a regular comb and hand-painted. The flower was a lucky find.
I definitely did NOT want to do the stark white makeup and opted for more natural shades as per the "Reflection" song scene.
Lastly, I altered my hairstyle because I kinda hate the loose bun head look in real life >_<... and I desperately wanted to use my own hair (plus extension loops ^^).

I don't know why Disney don't ask peoples like you to be a princess!! 

Some cosplayers are better than the actual princesses in disney land! So beautiful!
