Brother owns a vinyl decal and 3D print business. He was nice enough to custom print me about 2000 vinyl rectangles with rounded corners of varying sizes. (He has really reasonable rates - email@example.com if you’re interested!)
I then used fabric paints over the top of the squares, some dark, some light, lots of clear glitter-paint too. I wanted them to each have their own unique tone and texture. I picked fabric paint as opposed to acrylic because it can bend and move without cracking. I also picked vinyl instead of fabric or paper mosaic-work i’ve seen that uses mod podge because i wanted to be sure i could wash it without ruining anything. (I spill on myself a LOT. Derp.)
As you can see, the result is pretty cool.I’ve seen about a million different ways people have tried this bodice, all of ‘em are really unique and creative and look amazing! So this is by no means the only way to do it, it’s just the way I picked. XD;
Note: if you use this method, you WILL need strong glue, not just the sticky-backing of the decals. I am using E6000 (pictured above). Be careful using any strong glues like this one and make sure to do so only in a well-ventilated area.
As much as I adore Idina Menzel and Elsa, I’m really happy Anna (Kristen Bell) won an award instead. Anna is one of the most underrated (and unappreciated) characters in Frozen. People say that she shouldn’t have had so much of the focus during the movie.
All of the hype is around Let it go and Idina Menzel (which is totally understandable because. I mean its Idina Menzel). But Kristen Bell is amazing too. Her songs are amazing. The way she shaped her character was amazing.
But Anna is an amazing characters and personally, I relate to her more than I have any other character ever. I can see every part of myself in her. She is an amazing character.
And finally, someone other than me came to appreciate that.
