About this Costume
- Construction Details:
- The jacket and overskirt are made from pleather. I have had a hard time deciding the color for the trim. I wasn't certain about it being super metallic shiny silver, semi-shiny silver, just plain grey, or even white (stupid reverences).
So I did some experiments by testing all the options. White was a NO and super metallic shiny silver or grey didn't give the effect I wanted. So I picked up the semi-shiny silver pleather because in my opinion it gived the best visual effect on the costume.
The shirt is from tricot, rushed together with my serger, because I can.
The pants are made from a wool/ polyester blend.
For the boots I used black mens boots modified with pleather.
All the armor parts are made from polystyrene, thermoformed and painted with acrylics.
The wig... omg the wig... try to make "natural looking spikes" (stupid novel) with synthethic hair... More information at the "wig" section.
The ear prosthetics are modeled and hand made by me from latex.
- Personal Thoughts:
- Swords, fairies and fancy hair!
- Styling Notes
- I used 2 wigs for it. Ripped one apart, to make a lace front and sew all the wefts on the other wig. Because I needed all the volume to make the wig "explode". I steam styled all the spikes with a little touch of Got2B hairspray.
