Just me talking about costume-y kind of stuff
Peter Pan cosplay
We need a new cosplay for our Renfaire circuit this year. We did Robin Hood in 2014 and Kilts in 2016 and the kids have all grown up and out of them. I wanted to do a pirate-y thing for one of the themed weekends, which we did before but there wasn't a theme, it was just stuff I threw together at the last minute. I posted on FB asking for suggestions but no one came up with anything that I felt like doing. I'd been kicking around the idea of Peter Pan for awhile mostly because Sarah wants me to make her wings after we did Midsummer. It's pirate-y and there's characters for the whole family with the bonus that it's easily recognizable. I am particularly fond of the 2003 movie with Jason Isaacs (Lucius Malfoy) as both Mr. Darling and Captain Hook. Sarah as Tink, Sylvan as Peter (because of course my little boy is never actually going to grow up at this point, might as well capitalize on it while we can), Seth as Hook, Rob as Smee, and me as Wendy. Stay tuned for sketches.
Original Illustrations, 1911
By David Bedford
Disney's version, 1953
Mary Martin Version, 1955
Costume Design by Motley. Tinkerbell was played by twinkling lights.
Costume Design by Anthony Powell. I can't stand this version for the most part, I particularly hate the Tinkerbell costume. But the Smee costume is actually pretty good.
Cathy Rigby version, 1990
JK Simmons was her Captain Hook.
Peter pan, 2003
Costume Design by Janet Patterson. The only thing I don't like about this version is that Peter is played as an American. I get why they did it, but I am American and nope, Peter is British.
