For a second I almost had a heart attack that it was your embroidered sections you were replacing
There is no power in the world that would make me redo those panels.

So yeah, as per previous post, I am changing one of my Anna fabrics.
Top was the original plan, a peau de soi in a greenish mossy olive, based on the reference art/screengrabs I had at the time. Problem was, many of those screengrabs had a pretty distinct colourcast I wasn’t super aware of and hadn’t corrected for.
After seeing new images, as well as the fashion doll Disney put out, i decided to see about finding a more golden green. It took almost 2 hours and some EPIC help from a gal at King’s Textiles, but here we go. Bottom fabric is a cotton sateen which will hopefully also take the taffeta panels better than the satin did, and at 8 bucks a yard I was totally okay with making it another purchase.
Panel 7 is now completely done, panel 8 needs two more diamonds, and 9 and 10 are the plan for this weekend! Then the skirt embroidery will be DONE.

Quick Cosplay Tip!
Need to photograph fabric to compare colours, or show someone else what you’ve bought, but your camera just isn’t getting the colour right? Give it a reference point!
Most cameras will judge white balance off of two things: Something white, and/or skin tone.* Stick a sheet of white paper to the side of your fabric (It needs to be largish so the camera will register, I usually stick it about 1/4-1/3 of the photo frame) when you take your photo, or put your hand or foot in the shot. Bam, your colours will be MUCH closer to reality.**
Remember: ALWAYS TAKE A PHOTO OF YOUR FABRIC BEFORE YOU BUY IT. It’s so important to know how something will look under a flash, which is how most of your photos will be taken at con!
Hope this helps!
*Camera processors are still pretty racially programmed so this works best with white skin, but depending on camera and model you may find success if you’re a PoC. Best I can say is trial and error there.
**This does not promise to fix the whole ‘things on my monitor look different than real life’ issue. It just helps.

Geeky LoZ Wedding band? DON’T MIND IF I DO!
(please forgive the pun)
Rice Hat Samurai makes these out of a few different metals. The above is 14k gold with sterling silver filigree. And listed on his etsy!
I know a few gamers who are waiting to pop the question. A ring like this is one hell of a way to do it!
