Old Ballet costume?

You don't need to be in costume to post in this cosplay forum... but sometimes it helps.

Old Ballet costume?

Post by TheNerdyFeminist » Sat Oct 22, 2011 3:45 pm

I'm putting together a Navi cosplay for a masquerade performance, and I'm wondering if it's acceptable to use an old ballet costume as the base of the cosplay? I plan on making my own wings and hair accessory, and probably embellishing the costume to make it look more fairy-like, but would that still count as home made? or does home made mean entirely from scratch?

I'd count that as homemade. I often take old clothes and use them as the base for my cosplays, and I know other people do as well. I'm not sure if you were planning on entering the Masquerade or any sort of contest (can't recall what the rules say), but I think that sounds like a really cute costume!! I saw a girl last year dressed as Navi, and she was holding up a speech bubble that said "Hey, Listen!" Adorable.

actually yes, I intend to enter the Masquerade with it, doing a ballet routine to either the Hyrule Field theme as done by the Hyrule Symphony, or the Legend of Zelda main theme as orchestrated by John Williams. I've already made 1:30 cuts for either option.

Ah, then I will say nothing more, as the staff will be able to tell you if it would work. I don't want to give any incorrect information. But that sounds really neat!!
Sorry, in my blondness I didn't even realize you wrote that it was for the masquerade. My apologies!!! >_<
