 Vanellope Von Schweetz Cosplay or Halloween Costume DIY!

***Updated from 2014 post**  

One of my favorite Disney shows ever is Wreck-it Ralph! "Who doesn't love a brat with dirty hair?" Vanellope Von Schweetz...the Glitch, is such a loveable character! With the return of Vanellope to the big screens in Ralph Breaks the Internet, this costume is still a crowd pleaser. Perfect for a tween Halloween costume or a fun Disney inspired cosplay.

It's a pretty simple costume and easy to DIY if you haven't planned that far ahead!

   Start: Costume Base 

 Gather the aqua hoodie, brown skirt and aqua leggings/tights. We found the hoodie on Ebay, the skirt at a thrift store and the tights of Amazon.
Next, use the HOT PINK paracord and a giant darning needle and thread it right through the hoodie.  In the pocket...through the shirt, back through the shirt and then finished up going back through the pocket.
It's pretty intense threading the paracord through the hoodie...easy does it so it doesn't tear the hoodie.
    After stitching the "X", use a lighter and melt the paracord ends together.
   Use the pliers to press the melted ends together firmly until the nylon has melted together.
 Both stitches are melted together inside the kangaroo pocket. One just has the X showing...the other has the 2 lines showing.

  Next, the mint leggings! 

Start by cutting 6 inch strips of cardboard and insert them into the leggings. This will keep the paint from bleeding through the tights and sticking to the other side.
Then use painters tape and tape off diagonal stripes on one side and straight across stripes on the other leg.
 Next paint in between the painters tape white.
Let it dry, then come back and paint a thin stripe of purple on the wide stripes. Simple readjust the tape lines and paint again.
Let the tights dry completely, then turn them over and repeat the process for the other side, making the lines match up.

  Now...the hair candy! 

Use polymer clay to make all the little pieces of candy. These mints are fun to make! Take 2 balls of clay and smoosh them in the shape of mints...
Then cut each piece into 8 sections, like you are cutting a pie or a pizza.
 Repeat the cutting for the other color too.
 Then put the "pie" back together alternating the colors.
Make confetti or sprinkle pieces, gummy bears, stars, mints and hearts... then bake according to package...about 15 minutes at 275* 
Instead of trying to put all the candy on individual clips and OVERLOADING her head with bobby pins...I devised a genius solution! I used some plastic netting...the kind that comes with marbles or glass gems...
   Just place net on a silicone mat...and hot glue all the pieces right onto the net! Then, you just need to bobby pin the net in a few places on her head and it's good to go! You can't even notice the netting--especially if you have black hair!


Next, the licorice twist! 

Cut 2 pieces of red felt...1 by 6". Cut a slightly shorter than 6" piece of thicker gauge wire and  two 6" pieces of floral wire.

   Hot glue the wires on one piece of felt.
Run some hot glue around the edges and center and press the other piece of felt on top!  Easy! This will make it able to twist tight around the pony tail!
   Now add some puffy paint to look like shiny patterned licorice!
Wrap and twist! Point the ends up like bunny ears so people can see them!
