I always wanted to make a Disney costume but while thinking about one or another idea a friend of mine decided to make Rapunzel costume and in the end I decided to join her as Mother Gothel. I enjoyed her character so much during the movie since she is not the stereotype of villian one would expect. Most of all I fell in love with her vivid expressions - that is what we tried to capture in this picture. Of course it is hard to imitate a cartoon character but with some exaggerated makeup and my wonderful photographer ~misstakashi we eventually got the right atmosphere. The costume was completely sewn by myself (the fabric was a lucky find which, even not accurate envisions the colour and pattern scheme in a way i really like) including a hand painted gold/yellow lining on the sleeves. I also styled my wig and did the makeup. Hope you like! (Debuted for the Disney Villianesses contest of da group disney-club)
Fantasic Mother gothel cosume
OMG the Hair looks exactly like Mother gothel!!!! LOVE IT!
Another great shot!
The costume looks wonderful, and the makeup is so cleverly done! It really makes you look like Mother Gothel!
WHAT A PERFECTLY FANTASTIC GOTHEL!!!! Spitting image!!!
amazing! you got everything down to the print on the fabric right.
Many thanks! (The fabric is not totally accurate but I love the pattern and woven texture)
you are my new hero though. seriously. still love it. fantabulous work. im trying to sell some brand new cosplay stuff of mine to make money for my punzel transformation...if only i didnt look more like toddler punzle with my baby face an big eyes.....i'll love it when i'm 30 people say lol
wow I feel very honored - and I also know the problem with purchasisng high quality stuff for the costumes. Big eyes and babyface is somehow fitting for Rapunzel I think. I am curious what you will make, feel free to drop a note when finished^^
Well in order to make rapunzle i am trying to sell some of my cosplay stuff first. I'm a perfectionist so my cosplays tend to be expensive. it's an investment and labour of love XD. I made a folder with all the stuff i'm selling...some of it reluctantly but oh well.
best gothel ever!!

I am perfectly amazed by your costume. The details in the dress, wig, and makeup are just wonderful!
Awesome costume and expression! I wish I had a Mother Gothel as fabulous as you to take pictures with!
