Cosplayer Liebs > Costume of Helena from Orphan Black
About this Costume
- Construction Details:
- The wig was a lace-front with dark roots into which I sewed many many platinum wefts and hot-water curled the whole thing. It was a pain both to make and to wear. The slip was bought, altered, and dirtied up. The scars were painted with liquid latex onto a tank top I made out of sheer glissenette, which was worn under the slip. The knife is a craft foam blade strengthened with resin, with a paperclay-based hilt.
- Personal Thoughts:
- Helena is 100% my favorite clone and I am so sad she's not going to be alive for the second season ;.; Either way, she's a REALLY fun character to portray and I'm really glad I got the chance to get some photos of her with Archie.
But next time, I am definitely going to TRIM THE DAMN WIG LACE CLOSER, AUGHHHHH.
