Handmade item

Materials

foam, worbla, resin, satin, tafetta, steel boning, fake flowers, iron wire

This is my Princess Cadence costume that I made for myself. I have worn it to a couple of conventions.
I made this costume with much love and care and I spent many hours working the Worbla for the armor pieces, handsewing all the golden details on the dress and to create a fully steelboned corset for this costume.

The wings are mounted on a iron wire frame, and can be shoved into the corset at the back. So they sit firmly!

As for size. I was aprox a EU size 42-44 when I made this costume, and I'm 170 cm tall. The armor closes in the back with lacing, so it is a bit adjustable. The corset of course, also laces, so this is adjustable as well.

With this costume I won prices in several contests. It won first place at the Dortex design award in 2015, it won special mention in the Tsunacon cosplay contest in 2015 and it won the price for best cosplay at Elfia 2015. So it's an award winning costume!

Because it is worn, it will show signs of use (paint, fabric etc). Originally, the costume was designed to have light up gems. The blue gems on the armor all have LED's inside them, and they all have wiring. But, over the years, I didn't use the lights anymore, so I don't know if they will still work. So if you are tech savvy and want to do some soldering, you might get them to work again! But if you don't want the lights to work, you can also just cut off the wires and just wear the costume as is. It's completely up to you! I just needed to state this, because otherwise you might be scared by all the wires in the armor!

All the armor pieces are made with a thermoplastic called 'Worbla's Finest Art'. This is a hard and durable material, so the armor is quite sturdy. The pieces were all made by hand, after my own drawn costume design and patterns. The details on the armor are carefully sculpted and the gems were casted by me, using crystal clear resin.

The wings are made with lightweight foam. The paint has some cracks in it, but really not that much. The wings still look absolutely magical and can be worn so many times in the future!

Lots of hours went into creating this elegant costume.

Of course I know I can't ask the price for all the hours spent on this costume, because it is already used. That's why I came up with this special price! For this price, this beautiful, elegant armored princess costume can be yours! I'm sure you can still get a lot of wear out of this outfit! It would also be super beautiful for fantasy themed photoshootings.



Costume includes:
- Breastplate
- Shoulder armor
- Bracers
- Crown
- Skirt (1 light pink and one white and yellow)
- Tail with big pink bow
- Corset
- Wig
- Flower bouquet (fake flowers)

The wings are too big to ship. If you want the wings, it's only possible if you can pick up the costume. I'm located in the south of the Netherlands.
I can also fold the wings to make them fit into a box, but this means you will have to get the iron wire into the right shape again after you receive it. If this is no problem for you, please let me know, and I can ship the costume with the wings. The price of this listing is for the costume including the wings (so, folded wings).

Costume does NOT include:
- Little flower hairclips
- Hoopskirt
- Skincoloured top that I wear underneath the armor

I sincerely hope my lovely Cadence will find a new loving home! And if you know someone else who might be interested, always feel free to share this listing!

Wonder why I'm selling some costumes? Well, I made so many over the years, and they all have their own beauty. But if they stay in boxes in my closet, I think it would be so much better if they could get a second chance! It would make me so happy to see them find a new home!

Of course I will pack the costume with care and it will ship with track and trace.

If you are local, and want to pick up the costume, please send me a message!

    be advised that - as this seller so curtly told me - this listing is for a PATTERN NOT A TUTORIAL. you will download six pages of pattern pieces but no tutorial, no materials required, no picture of completed project, no step by step instructions on how to sew the hat. minimal instructions on pattern pieces on how to sew the hat. bought this to make these silly hats for my grandsons. not sure if i will invest time and materials in this project now. truly sorry i patronized this seller. sellers response to my concerns and complaint (yes, i shared i thought this was lousy) was an invitation to give a negative review. here you go joyce.........

    Joyce responded

    I’m sorry to hear you’re not pleased with the product. When I got your questions I replied that you can find instructions on the pattern pieces, and that there’s a diagram on the pattern that shows how to align the fabric pieces to form the hat and I explained the steps to give extra help.
    In the product description, there is a photo of the finished hats, and it also clearly states that it’s a pattern (not a tutorial). It’s a simple pattern, and all the instructions you need are on the pattern pieces.
    Of course you have the right to post an honest review, also about a product you didn’t like. I just wanted to remind you about that.
    If you decide to still sew the hats, I’m sure you’d make really cute hats for your grandchildren!

    Lovely bag with a nice design on it and a soft fluff lining the inside. It's fairly big so you can hold plenty of dice in it :)
