From our wedding on October 29, 2011
Since we're both cosplayers, we really wanted to have some sort of costume wedding, but we didn't want to do anything too obscure to our families. We decided on a Disney/fairy tale theme and picked a date close to Halloween since it'd be a great time of year for it.
The Bride and Groom outfits were based on concept artwork for Rapunzel and Eugene/Flynn's wedding attire from Tangled, which was printed in the movie's art book that I got last Christmas. I tried to contact the artist that drew my favorites to see if she could provide me with any larger images, but I never got a response. Ironically 2 months before the wedding, Disney announced that there would be a short film released in Spring 2012 that is about Rapunzel and Eugene getting married. However, the lone image released for it so far is a poster that only shows their shoulders and up. We mixed and matched different ideas from the poster and artwork to come up with our finished outfits.
So once the short film does come out, I don't want people nagging me about inconsistencies. XD This is my wedding gown, not just any regular cosplay.
My main references for the dress: [link][link]
The concept art is very similar to the pink princess dress Rapunzel wears at the end of the film, so I was basing it heavily on that as well. To make the printed designs stand out more and match the Groom's concept art, I used a gold textile paint. Also, I used an ivory brocade as the contrast fabric instead of pink like in the first link. For the sake of practicality, my veil isn't 70 feet long, but it is longer than the train of the dress. I was originally going to add the designs on the veil and make the tiara, but I was running out of time so I bought the official Disney Store tiara and used a gold ribbon to accent the veil instead. We chose to use our own hair instead of wigs since we wanted to look more like ourselves on our special day.
I will post more photos after I do a journal recap about the wedding itself! :3
