I have wanted to cosplay Jasmine since 2010, all the way back in high school. Here I am five years later, FINALLY doing it. Along with Belle, Jasmine is one of my favorite Princesses!
I went for a mix of various looks with my design. Mostly I wanted to stay grounded to the animation look, so I tried to be very deliberate and precise with my colors and textures (simple, clean, smooth, and cartoony). However, because I ALSO love the look of more detailed versions, such as her sparkle dress, park costume, her Couture de Force statue, and Musical Spectacular looks, I decided to add some options for future accessorization.
The top is just spandex with stretch mesh for sleeves. Quite simple- this will be based on her animation version. Later on I intend to do different tops for different looks, with more detail! The pants are quite simple- Casa satin and a spandex waistband, with elastic pant cuffs, so they just slide on. Very comfy! As an optional accessory, I can layer a sparkly organza skirt over it, which resembles her sparkle look (such as seen in Sofia the First).
The jewelry such as earrings and necklace were bought. Shoes are also just cheap gold slippers. I want to learn to make my own shoes for this, but for budget's sake, and to save time, I'll get to that later! My good friend Anya Braddock is helping me with the wig! I made the wig "rolls", and she helped wrap them as I would set it with hand applied hair spray. I really couldn't have done this without her, so I'm very thankful for her help!!
