My 3.5 year old daughter wanted to be a princess for Halloween. OK! I said, then all common sense flew out the door and I proceeded with making her an entire, (mostly) historically accurate 18th century Robe a la Francaise, using nothing but thrifted bed sheets for the fabric.
If you’re interested in the nitty gritty details - I’ve made a blog post detailing the construction process
Back-story: Youma2013 was Byndo Gehk’s and mine’s 1 year anniversary. Last year at Youma2012 we had our very first date where, among many things, we watched Wreck-It-Ralph. Shown before it was the Paperman short…which we both fell in love with. Then we did all over again with the feature film~~
So here are some photos of our Paperman couple cosplay. Photos taken and edited by our VERY talented friend M1Photo. Thank you so much, they came out even better than I could imagine~!!
