Weird topic, gulls: I know how you guys like to cosplay things like Sakizou drawings, and I know some of you like LARPing. This is neither of those, and is closer to period costuming. Have any of you ever seen classical paintings or statues and really wanted to cosplay them? (Pic related, the Vestal Virgin statue that was in the 2005 P&P) Where would you wear such a specific costume? Ren faires? Have you ever been so jealous of someone's outfit in a Vermeer that you wanted to recreate it?

I don't know how popular this painting is, but I saw it in an art museum and fell in love with it. I'd love to cosplay it one day, especially because she looks a lot like me, but I don't know if I should. Do you think I should go for it?

The painting is Odalisque, by August Renior

Assuming this is for a fancy dress party I wonder if anyone got it!

I would love to see one of the more experienced prop/mask makers recreate an Archimboldo portrait, perhaps the Librarian would be the easiest? Here's a still life version, so it's probably doable.

>>8803817
Oh god I know, I don't think I'll be able to make it until I'm in a good job with a steady income, and even then I'll probably be collecting materials over years.

Oh well, at least it's a piece of timeless art and the amount of recognition I'd get from it likely won't change much, if at all, over time.
>>
>>8804385
Well there's plenty of odalisques to choose from anon, how about Ingres? have you checked Indian or maybe Persian stores for fabric though (but Maghrebi fabric would make it more historically accurate)? the fabric is not that much more expensive at least where I live

>>
>>8804603
>>8804638
I live in America so I feel like historically and culturally accurate fabrics will cost more, if anything. But I really like that one painting for a number of reasons and I'm not looking to do anything else. I don't mind that it would probably take years to complete, since as I said, the people who will recognize it will recognize it no matter when I do it.

>>8804864
maybe some people who are in reenactement groups can help you out?

Don't overlook ethnic clothing found in thrift stores, anon! There's a lot that can be salvaged from a stained sari.

I've always wanted to do one of Louis Cranach the Elder's Judith paintings. They're so badass and a lot of them even have similar facial characteristics to me. No idea where to wear it though.

I think this is a case of doing it for art shoots more so than running around. Or you need to find non shitty reenactment groups. Which is already near impossible.

it's not impossible, at least in europe. Although it isn't easy either.

And some better larps could be a good opportunity too

quite a few years ago, a group of ladies recreated this painting of the empress eugenie surrounded by her ladies at costume con. if i remember right, they won the historical masq that year.

On the subject of reenactment groups, are there any nice ones outside of Europe at all? I know there are Civil War and War of Independence reenactment groups in America, but I'm not aware of how quality they tend to be.

>>8809346
I'm pretty sure there are a lot of WW I and II reenactment groups outside of europe that are good.
As for more renaissance and medieval period... I don't know. I can't recall anny famously good ones from outside of europe but I don't know all of them.
>>
>>8809687
don't ren-fairs in america tend to be really big and popular? well, quantity and qualitiy and all that aside, I'm sure >>8809346 could start looking for good groups there

>>8809351
I'm so ridicolously in love with that series and I'm so mad I missed the call for models for it
>>
>>8809800
ren-fairs have very little to do with reenactment. You need historical accuracy for reenactment. That's one of the main points.
As far as I know renfairs in general are very fare from that. Then again there could be a few reenactors there

Considering Renoir is one of the best-known painters, I'm sure it'll be recognizable. Might be better for a photoshoot than a con, but otherwise, go for it.

>>8804089
Most likely yes

From what I can see of her face their features are pretty similar but why would you choose that picture of yourself to compare it to the Mona Lisa? It's not even remotely similar posing AND most of her face is covered!

Here's bunch of architects dressed as the buildings they design in 1931.

I'm so down to do a 4-person group where we just paint our head and bust grey and wear all black below.

I've always thought doing a full greek statue would be awesome. Gotta find a decent way around the nudity thing though. Also need to get my aesthetics in shape.

I feel doing a statue costume would be pretty similar to doing a Weeping Angel costume--I'm sure no one would yell at you for historical accuracy for choosing to wear a chiton.

I've been looking into this myself lately. I want to cosplay from a very small fandom of mine. (Ranger's Apprentice) but it's hard to find good historically accurate patterns that fit my budgets.
Technically it's a fictional novel series, but it's set in a medieval world.

I love Waterhouse's Ophelia (and Hylas and the Nymphs, and Mermaid) too.There are lots of photographic recreations of Ophelia, but mostly inspired by the Millais painting.

Millais's has just captured the most hearts. It's a stunning work of art. It's sad that his other works are overlooked

I feel it'd be weird to dress like this for a con, only because Mucha is as much about the background as it is about the figures and you'd get no recognition; people would probably come up to you assuming you're doing some sort of fancy mori outfit.
>>
>>8828052
I'd love to see a cosplay of his painting "The Bridesmaid". The colours are so rich and damn, that hair!
