From mermaid-princess to a princess on a magic carpet. I actually never planned to do a Jasmine cosplay but got convinced last year to make another Disney princess come to life. This is me in my Arabian princess costume. I wore this Jasmine, Disney’s Aladdin, cosplay at Animecon 2014, The Hague. This costume is the first costume I really made from scratch, the first time making a pattern and making my own harem pants and bandeau-ish top. I loved how it turned out and even got complimented on my cosplay by cosplayer Yaya Han – I still can’t believe that I finally got to see her in person and have a little chat with her. She’s such a sweetheart and inspiring person!
Of course the wig for Jasmine was horror, but I loved working on it. I used a black lining fabric that I stuffed with some plushie stuffing, draped the hair around it and sew the hair together. I know it sounds a lot more complicated than it actually is. Though I loved working on this costume I see a lot of room for improvement, I just started learning how to make my cosplays and I really want to update my Jasmine costume sometime in the future.
I’m not sure what my next cosplay will be, but I’m definitely not done cosplaying princesses.
