About this Costume
- Construction Details:
- Alright well first I used one pattern for the corset top and modified it to the extreme by removing the bust covering and extending it over the hips a bit. The boots are covers that are permanently attached to the point toe heels inside. The top piece was a custom design and all the pieces I have mentioned so far were made out of a metallic blue vinyl. Once everything was pieced together it was days of riveting. My hands still ache a little when I think about it. I think the total was around 400 or so when it was all said and done. The cloak is a cotton blend that I dyed to the blue shade you see. Then I style cut and burned it to get it that battle worn feel. The wings were a crazy endeavor all on there own. First at the base is a plywood and nylon strap harness and base. From there the base skeleton of the wings is a light weight pvc. These are movable wings so putting coverings on them was a chore you have to make sure not to clump to much around the joints or adhere anything to them or they won't budge anymore. So the wing membrane is a blue latex the cover is a thick piece of vinyl painted in gold tone. The boning was going to be a paperclay mix but it held down the movement to much so it was abandoned for paint.
