This was my second big project this year:

The Frog Queen
Inspired by the Brothers Grimm’s fairytale "The Frog Prince" (or "Iron Henry")

The design is entirely done by myself, if you're interested in my concept and WIP posts, feel free to check my tumblr: [link]

In fact, this is already my second try at re-inventing the Frog Prince.
Back in 2007, I sewed a Frog Prince (or Queen, really) costume for a cosplay group of original design fairy tale characters, which was awesome, but everytime I looked at my costume, I felt I could’ve done so much more.
Now, 5 years later, I decided to revamp this cosplay. First, I wanted to salvage as much of the original costume as possible, but as it is horribly crafted and I don’t like the fabrics anymore I chose back then, I instead started all over again from scratch. For the design, I researched different types of male and female fashion from the 17th-19th century and pretty much included everything I liked.

As a child, I’ve always loved The Frog Prince, not so much for the prince and the pincess (who are both most unlikeable and shallow characters), though, but for the pince’s loyal servant Heinrich (or Henry). I just loved the poem towards the end of the story, when Henry’s driving home with his master and feels so relieved that the iron band he’d fastened around his heart in grief finally bursts and startles the prince, who thinks it must be the carriage breaking. This is said poem:
“Henry, the wheel must be breaking!”
“The wheel does not break,
‘Tis the band round my heart
That to lessen its ache,
When I grieved for your sake,
I bound round my heart.”
(English version taken from Seiyaku.com)

Grün, grün, grün sind alle ihre Kleider!
Grün, grün, grün ist alles was sie hat.
Darum liebt sie alles was so grün ist,
weil ihr Schatz der Froschkönig ist!

Awesome costume! You said the design is yours. Great job! And I must say that you have a pair of incredibly sexy legs! And those thigh highs only bring attention to and accentuate them in all their glory. You're an incredibly attractive girl, no doubt. But there's something about those sexy legs that makes me want to touch them. Love at first sight!

Yes, the costume is self-made and designed by myself - although I wouldn't say it's an overly inventive design. I simply put together differnt design elemts I like.
Haha, I actually think these white tigh highs are making my legs look awfully short!
