Cruella de Vil




A crazy project out of my comfort zone I wanted to do for several years!! With my EuroCosplay 2016 finals participation, I decided to take a leap of faith/risk and go for it! It felt great to bring the long awaited skit on stage, which was difficult to bring with many short mimics/expressions in such short times. A true challenge but fun to do!

The costume as well: it combined plenty challenges and my beading experience. (Of course hole in my wallet as well :s)

For the wig: ventilated and added wefts. Removed the half part of the black wig.

Jewellery: completely made from tube, pearls, wire from scratch.

Shoes: took lower shoes (back health issue) and made a satin shoe covers which were completed with hand sewn sequins, tubes and pearls.

Gloves/ Top/Skirt and overskirt: completely made and hand sewn by yours truly. <3

It was and is a pain to find decent full body - every angle shots! I finally manage to get the centre back shots 1 year after 2016! This after contacting several instances.
For this reason (and also the travel issue London-Brussels) the project is still not finished.

a dream cosplay since 2011 on my wishlist. Skit music was made with the original Glenn Close voice.

Coq and Ostrich feathers were used. Lots of Gütermann twist beads, seed beads and red sequins.
More over 200 feathers, plus 10+ ?20? full packages of Gütermann , about 10 sewing thread pools, around 100 metres sold sequins were used to name some dazzling items and their respective amount.

Money and time amount higher than expected mainly due to china delivery issues. Time management was a big key here in order to finish the cosplay about 7,5 months.

Total costs: +800 euro
