Rochelle Goyle Cosplay 4 by msventress Rochelle Goyle Cosplay 4 by msventress
This labour of love took about 6 months to complete... on and off. All of the costume pieces where difficult to get right, so they each took alot of time. Oddly enough the skirt was the easiest and hardest part of the costume.

I am loving the Monster High franchise. Great message and beautiful doll design. Rochelle is one of my faves.

Beautiful costume! Must have taken forever to make - but it was well worth it!
Thank you so much for answering everyone's questions! even ones that have been asked twice! 
It's great to get some tips - especially from someone who made the costume so well - and it definitely makes it seem like making this cosplay is a lot more do-able

Thanks for the awesome compliment! Much appreciated. I don't think cosplay tips should be hidden or kept secret, but there are times when it's awesome to self discover. With most of my costumes it just time and committing to it. It's very easy to loose interest during the build so I always choose a character I love.

I completely scratch built it. I redrew and stenciled the design onto fabric and then sewed the skirt together.

hello! i love your cosplay and i have been interested in cosplaying rochelle too! obviously, the thing i am most confused about is the skirt. how did you make it? were the patterns painted on by hand? thank you!

msventress Featured By Owner May 31, 2013
Thanks! The pattern was scanned from the doll's tiny skirt and I re-drew the pattern in my Adobe Illustrator program. I sized it up to my size, and printed the pattern and started cutting out the stencil by hand, took forever. But it turned out exactly how I wanted. :) I then used spray paint to apply the stencil to the skirt and then painted an iridescent glitter over top of the silver spray paint.

The skirt is just a simple Gather Skirt. I used this as a tutorial. [link]

FANGTASTIC!!! hehe! I love that you went the extra mile and did all the details on her shoes! I'm planning/working on Operetta and am dreading her shoes!

Thank so much. The shoes where a little delicate so I have to fix them before I wear them again.

i actually work on a Rochelle Cosplay too. but i have no idea how to do the wings...any pointers...pls? ^^;

Thank you. For the wings: I purchased Halloween bat wings. They are made of a foam type material and included straps. The only drawback was that they where flat. So I glued wire to the indented parts of the wings and then shaped them to be more curved. I then did a "stone" texture spray paint and then a light grey paint. I then dabbed on specks if light and dark grey paint to add more definition.

Here is a link to the wings I bought to use as the base: [link]

:clap: You're welcome! Her design is my favorite, so I'm amazed by every detail. I also like how you used a black lace trim underneath the skirt. I only just noticed it was a honeycomb netting type material on the concept art ([link]), but the lacing you used is much more elegant and not cheap-looking like the original one.

msventress Featured By Owner Mar 11, 2013
Yeah. That is exactly what I though when I saw the netting... Not very French, she needs lace!!!

I bought the base shoes at Spring shoes like almost a year ago. Only $20. I did the detailing with model magic and paint.

Awh! Thanks! I want to print this comment out, frame it and put it on my wall. Hehe.

Just took a long time to make this costume. Had to use my redrawing skills for the skirt pattern which I made into a huge stencil. Most of the shoes are covered in model magic. That did not hold up as good as I wanted to and I will have to fix a few spots before I wear them again.

If you want to build the costume just message me and I can give you some pointers. :)
