[GISELLE] Serial Curtain Killer by Windaria [GISELLE] Serial Curtain Killer by Windaria
I can't believe I'm actually uploading something to this site. SOMEONE PINCH ME I MUST BE DREAMING.

So for those of you who don't normally follow me on other cosplay sites, this is the third Giselle costume I've made, the other two being two versions of that big white poofy thing.

I made this one for Otakon 2008, where a friend of mine asked me to be her Giselle for a skit based off the "That's How You Know" segment of the film. I studied over 15 production and display shots of this dress to get the details down, because I had to make my own flower designs on the fabric. Each flower was hand-drawn by myself on a piece of paper, scanned into my computer, printed out on transfer paper, cut out individually, and then ironed on. It took a very, very long time.  Totally worth it.

I also managed to snag two awards: one for our skit (Best Masters Performance) and one for my dress (given by the tasty :iconsadwonderland:).

:iconwindaria: - Giselle [ENCHANTED]

Photos were lovingly taken by :iconicequeenkitty:'s mom, who is a total doll. <3

NOTE: Costumes and photos are not up for critique. Keep DA cool and respect the request of all artists involved in this submission!

So cute! Looks perfect!

How accurate to the original is your flower pattern? I've been studying it for my own version of this dress, and it's almost impossible to determine from screencaps. I'd like to see what you figured out, if you don't mind.

You make a better Giselle than Amy Adams.
BadEggs-x Featured By Owner Feb 6, 2009
This is awsome.

But where on earth did you get that wig (Im guessing its a wig) cause I am doing a Giselle cosplay and i cant seem to find the right wig in the right colour.

Hehe, I was part of the lesser Organization XIII skit... We thought you were absolutely amazing - I was astonished by your costume~! And it was so cool seeing your Sora. I used to work with her.

Dude, I saw you for like 5 seconds in this and it was dark. ;__; But it looks gorgeous and I love how accurate all of the flowers are!

Awesome! This is my favorite dress of Giselle's, and were I not pregnant, I'd have attempted making it by now XD
You look lovely as always :)

You are such a beaautiful Giselle! That dress is truly amazing!

You are such a great Giselle. Your costume-making skills are superb. I tried to cosplay Giselle and failed abysmally (in her pink cartoon dress, mind you, but that makes it worse because it's probably her simplest dress!). Really well done. You did a great job re-producing the dress. I hope you do other Giselle costumes! :)
AllenGale Featured By Owner Aug 23, 2008
I love it! After the monster that is her wedding dress, provided I'm still alive after that, I want to make either he pink animated dress or this dress! Great job and thanks for your tips with the wedding dress!
