Cosplay of Oz

So, I've long been fascinated by the character of Princess Ozma. If you've only ever seen the Judy Garland movie, you may not know who she is. She made an appearance in Return to Oz (1985) but she was in most of the books and I think she even has a comic book series somewhere.

I love her. For a while now, I've toyed with the idea of cosplaying as Ozma.

I am not against drag. Not at all. Not even a little bit. Except for the part where I am a Mediterranean elf with all the body hair that entails. Even if I went with a long sleeved dress, I'd need gloves. I've shaved the beard for cosplay before, but I'd need beaucoup makeup to hide that shit anyway. Drag is work, and I'm lazy.

If only Harvey Fierstein were here to be my fairy dragmother.

Then I thought of doing boi!Ozma. But I feel funny doing a genderbent Ozma when Ozma already is a trans* character. (If you haven't read the books, maybe this catches your interest.)

So now I'm waffling, and thinking maybe I could cosplay as another citizen of the Emerald City, but I just really like Ozma.

And I can't find that bloody OZ crown anyway. Anybody know a good jeweler?
