Sweet Ride by Ringo-Chu Sweet Ride by Ringo-Chu
Here is my Vanellope cosplay from Fanime 2013
The costume and Kart were handmade by me. The kart is mostly made of Fiberglass and foam and is powered by an electric wheel chair :)

Simply amazing to see how the foreign / Non Swedish cosplay community has so many amazing Artist in the cosplay direction.

I am especially amazed how you manage to make a car which was meant to be a "disaster" and still manage to make it look pretty darn amazing.
Sort of gives the feelings that Vanellope had in the movie sort of since she liked it even if it was not like the "standard"-type Cars.
5/5 points including a bonus for the very good Photo.

Can you do a tutorial on how you made your kart? My friends wand I will be cosplaying some characters with their karts.

I'm sorry I'm not able to... it was very time consuming to make so it would take a really long time for me to put one together.  I can post my progress photos if that will help you out? just be aware that this isn't the most cost effective way to go.  The total cost was over a thousand dollars and the motor I got for free from a friend....and that would easily cost another 700.  It took nine months to build and It also takes two vehicles to get it to a con which is a huge pain.  I'm not trying to discourage you I just want you to know what your signing up for.  If you really want to go for it feel free to ask me any questions and I'll help the best I can.  If you are looking something more portable you should check this out www.deviantart.com/art/Vanello… She did a really awesome job on hers and its definitely more convenient than mine.

Amazing! Can't believe you did the kart all by yourself. I've got a friend of mine who's going to cosplay as Vanellope too and she would really love to also have the kart. Don't suppose you made a tutorial of its construction, did you?

Love your cosplay!

Thanks! I'm afraid i didn't make a tutorial... It was my first time working with fiberglass so it was a lot of guess work for me.
