About this Costume
- Construction Details:
- This costume was a doosie! The embroidered petticoat alone took me more than 300 hours to do! It's nine yards of more fabric and enough thread to get me to the moon!
The blue edging/trim is satin baby blanket binding ironed within an inch of it's life and hand sewn on using a blind stitch. I used a heavy polyester fabric for the white because it's supposed to be a field uniform in theory, but I fully lined it in a light cotton to make it more comfortable. Shoulder holster is made of the softest vinyl ever, along with pieces of 4 belts, western snaps, and silver rivits. The patterns are all hand-drafted. (Whoever invented dressforms needs to be Sainted!)
The arrows are made with sculpee and pinbacks. Most of my armor bits are made from sheet plastic and craft foam.
- Styling Notes
- My friend xxkagetoraxx styled it for me using. . . of all things. . . watered down Elmer's Glue! I was truly reluctant for her to try this, but now I love it! A nuclear appocolypse could happen, and this wig would still keep it's style!
