(Vanellope von Schweetz) Striped Tights Tutorial by AnyaPanda (Vanellope von Schweetz) Striped Tights Tutorial by AnyaPanda
I've been getting an overwhelming amount of questions as to how I made my Vanellope tights, as well as a tutorial request for the process, so finally, here's my Vanellope striped tights tutorial. Now, while Vanellope is the main example for this tutorial, you may of course follow this tutorial while making striped tights for any other character who wears them (Ruby Gloom, Taffyta Muttonfudge, Mavis Dracula, etc.)

For those wondering where I got my green tights, those were purchased from Claire's (a North American accessory boutique). I got them while they were in clearance during the Christmas season, so unfortunately, I don't think they'll be available anymore. :(

Thank you! :heart:

I really love the way you did this!
I've been thinking about how I can make striped tights/leggings for cosplay...including vanellope now, she too awesome not to cosplay...without totally making them from scratch. 
Look forward to getting to try this...

Would this still work if someone just bought green and whit stripped tights, and then just make the purple bands and put it on the white stripes on the other leg?

AnyaPanda Featured By Owner Sep 18, 2013
I think that would be perfectly fine! One thing to keep in mind is that the stripes with the purple in them have twice the amount of white as the plain white stripes do, but I think as long as the purple stripes are kept thin enough, it shouldn't be a problem at all. :)

Oh wow. This is gonna help big time with my Taffyta/Torvald cosplays!! I know Lilly had a bit of a hard time at Tsukino with her stripes painted on because one of them awkwardly landed on her knee, so this might be more reasonable for when I make mine ;w;
ALSO YOU TOTALLY GAVE ME CHILDHOOD FLASHBACKS WHEN YOU MENTIONED RUBY GLOOM. OH MAN.

Oh gosh girl, you know what this means, right? I'm planning on doing a Sticky cosplay at some point, so I think we'll have a few incentives to get photos together. :D And I'm glad you find this helpful! The tights were a tricky thing to figure out, so it's good to be able to put this method I came up with out there. Painting can be so sketchy, especially if you've spent a lot on the base tights.

CHILDHOOD FLASHBACKS, OH YEAH. See, now that I have this tights method, I can finally achieve my dream of being Ruby (*winks to younger self* "dreams really do come true, don't worry").

Took a few pictures of Vanellope to my photo editor and did a quick color-match to the colored stripes on the left leg. They ended up being a deep olive green (hex code 525A40, R: 82 G:90 B:77) or in some cases a pinkish-purple color (hex code 773C52 R:119 G:60 B:82) Like with the hair candies, they seem to change color based on lighting and general inconsistencies with the framing of the shots. Therefore I'd call the color of the stripes solidly in the "cosplayer discretion" category. I love cosplays where there are no real "wrong answers"! (obviously something way off is still not a good idea, but somewhere in the general purple/pink/red/green/grey palette would work, so long as it matches well with the rest of the colors used in the costume.

Wow, someone did their homework, lol. Ok, I have had two people now tell me that her stripes are not red, so I must say that I am wrong.
