About this Costume
Construction Details:
I’ve always wanted to do a Star Wars costume, but I didn’t want to pull from the movies. So I went through the Wookieepedia. This was the first name I clicked on and I knew the moment that I saw the image that I wanted to make this character come to life. http://starwars.wikia.com/wiki/Darth_Simi The bodysuit was dyed and constructed by me from white spandex dance fabric. The tattoo’s were hand painted by me. Overall construction time for just the suit, including gloves, socks, and painting, took roughly 70 hours. It was important to me to make this a 360 degree costume, so the arms and back are also tattooed. The cloak and belts are made out of suede with a cotton stretch backing. I wanted an element of richness to the cloak while still being light enough to move. It felt like a good blend between femininity and utility. The hair is a series of dreadlocks made of scrap cotton fabric, yarn, and hair extensions. The horns are foam covered with cotton stretch fabric and painted. They are attached to the cap with spirit gum. Cap is latex that was made by me to conform to my head. Estimated Cost: $150. Bad fabric choices in the initial stages caused for money to be wasted. Reality of the cost is under $100 for the costume. For additional images, please visit wee's gallery: http://www.cosplay.com/gallery/206245/
