Vanellope von Schweetz: The Glitch by AnyaPanda Vanellope von Schweetz: The Glitch by AnyaPanda
I LOVE this photo and I LOVE this cosplay and I LOVE Wreck-It Ralph. :heart: ... That pretty much sums it all up for me.

No, but seriously, since I saw the trailer for WIR, I fell in love with it. I just loved the concept, and knew it would be a good movie - and I was right! Since first seeing the film in November, I have seen it two more times, am the proud owner of the soundtrack, and, most recently, this cosplay! I don't think I've been this obsessed with a movie since I saw Lilo and Stitch when I was a kid, so that's really saying something. Plus the casting was a sufficient nostalgia hit for me since I grew up loving School of Rock, which Sarah Silverman was in, have spent most of my pre-teenhood, and all of my teen years watching 30 Rock, which features Jack McBrayer, and, of course, I spent quite a bit of time following Glee, and think Jane Lynch is awesome. Unfortunately, I can't say that I knew any of John C. Reily's work, but hey, I can now! I could seriously go on and on about this movie, but I think you the gist.

As for Vanellope, I have to rave a little here. When I saw her in the trailer, I immediately fell in love with her character design (namely the hair candy) and had a feeling I'd like her. And of course, I was right. She's basically the Wreck-It Ralph equivalent of Maya Fey, making her hands down my movie spirit animal; the things she says, that is totally the way I talk. I'm also a major Mario Kart (and pretty much racing games in general) fanatic, so if I was in a racing game where I wasn't allowed to race, I would go outlaw too. I also LOVED the concept of her being a glitch, that really grabbed my interest. Sarah Silverman did such an amazing job voicing her, and just everything about her character is so loveable. Another big thing was how I related to the bullying she suffered. Watching the movie for the first time, I was just sitting there thinking "oh my gosh, that's me. I was that kid." Kids gave me a hard time because I was different, and broke my stuff. They didn't push me into mud, but they definitely pushed my soul into deep, chocolatey mud of sadness. So needless to say, I related to Vanellope in many ways.

Super quick, here's a bit on the construction: the wig and extension I had before. All the hair candy I made by hand (there's actually more of it, but I didn't get around to putting all of it in XP). I'll be posting a hair candy tutorial soon already done! Link below. The tights and hoodie were bought for me by my Grandma (thank you so much)! :heart: The tights' stripes are made out of jersey fabric and stretchy knitted fabric; took me three tries to get them right, but I'm happy that I managed to make it work in the end! The boots I had before. The skirt was originally a peasant skirt, which I've had for years, but never wore, so cutting it up seemed like a no-brainer. Her hair Twizzler I originally tried making out of clay, but it kept breaking and wouldn't fit right, so my mom eventually convinced me to just scratch that idea and use fabric. I caved and went for it, and am super happy I did! It came out really well and is super light and easy to put into the wig. Plus the shininess definitely does it justice.

I also must mention that the Twizzler, as well as the details on the hoodie are made of probably the most appropriate fabric ever... Taffeta. :iconhurrplz:

So there's my rambling! Vanny will probably have her con debut at Sakura-Con 2013, since I've convinced most of the members of my cosplay group to form a WIR group with me, so I should have a Felix, Ralph and hopefully Taffyta and Candlehead... 'Cause ah wanna have mah haters! :'D

I decided to rewatch Wreck-It-Ralph recently, and I still think it's one of Disney's best animated movies, certainly on par with "Beauty and the Beast" and "The Lion King".  I completely agree with everything you said about Vanellope in the description of this picture!  I've been bullied throughout most of my life, so I can totally relate to her backstory, just like you.  Plus, she's provides some of the funniest moments in the entire movie!

I'd also love to see a "Wreck-It-Ralph" world show up in Kingdom Hearts 3!  While Ralph is the more likely character to be a party member, I'd love to see Vanellope at least be a Summon character!  Imagine her running over enemies with her car, or glitching everywhere to confuse them!  What do you think?

Getting to the point, your Vanellope cosplay is one of the best, if not THE best, cosplays you have ever made! :D You've managed to perfectly recreate every detail of her outfit and hair, and even your facial expressions and mannerisms match her sarcastic attitude and personality!  I can't stop gushing over how awesome your cosplays are, and you're such an inspiration to me!  I hope that I can become as great a cosplayer as you!

So adorable! The pose looks just like her and so do you. Her voice actor (Sarah Silverman) looks like her too.
Something that stood out to me was the description you put. When I was a kid, others gave me a hard time as well, and it was because I had a disability just like Vanellope.
Also the stockings look really well done as if they came out of the movie, great work :heart:

Thank you!!!  You are a life saver!  My 7 year old niece decided that for Trick or Treat to dress up as Vanellope.  Your tips on how you recreated her look from the movie are super helpful!!!  She will be so excited that I can help her with all the pieces.  Keep up the great work, quite a talent!

I'm sure others have asked but, how'd you do the socks? O.O this whole cosplay is perfect~ and I just can't seem to do the socks >< and any tips on finding a similar skirt?

:iconanyapanda:
AnyaPanda Featured By Owner May 8, 2013
Thank you! ^^ I will be making a tutorial for the tights in the next little while, but the explanation for how I made them is this: the base green tights just have stretchy white loops over top of them. These were sewn a little smaller than my leg sizes with the intention that they'll stay up by tension.

As for the skirt, what I'd do is look for a a peasant-style skirt with ruffles rather than pleats since pleats don't quite look the same as Reese's peanut butter cups the way ruffles do. What I did is I got a long ruffled peasant skirt and cut the bottom off of it and sewed that higher up in order to layer it.

The best cosplay ever made on earth!!!
these are the reasons:
Great choice of fabric: Taffeta( I heard it was quite expensive. is that right? I'm not sure.)
Great recipe of making hair candy: shows that you are a professional!
And lastly,, as you said and the student filmographer, reaper chris said, she's you! (my guess, you know better. but maybe, maybe you are too good at catching details of the characteristics of the characters and following them when you are cosplaying the character.)
I don't know you well, but even in the internet, I could sense that you have a charm that makes people like u and love ur work. Also, you mat heard it a llooot of times, but you are talented at cosplaying too, that also makes peoples love ur work, too.
P.S: I can't understand why someone, who is a living mankind, bullied someone who is talented, charming and beautiful. I can't understand why. I just can't.

Oh goodness, thank you! :wow: :heart:

Taffeta is often quite expensive, yes. But I find it on sale very frequently, so it's not usually too bad. Also the taffeta I used for this was from a previous cosplay, so I didn't have to pay for more! :D

Thank you very much, I'm glad you approve of it! :aww:

All I can say is WOW. I am so flattered by your compliments, your comment really brightens up my day! n//n Thank you so much, I really can't say enough how touched I am by your kind words and I am certainly inspired to keep up my work. :huggle: Many thanks! :heart:

Aww, thank you. :') It certainly has been a difficult time getting through school and its bullies, but thankfully I am now in a supportive and kind community. :)

When I first saw this picture, there was no doubt in my mind that Disney created the character based on you, you ARE Vanellope!!! XD Kudos!!! You're a really talented artist in your craft and, if I may say so, a really beautiful and adorable girl. I would love to have someone so special such as you in my life.
