About this Costume
Construction Details:
I patterned out a 4 panel dress with a back zipper from scratch, which was more of a pain then I thought. Then I added in the piping details and used leather cording for the stitched "x's"

The wig was styled around wire sewed into the skin cap, to give the braids lift. The accessories like the earrings, dress triangles, and tiki necklace were all made from sculpy then cast out of resin, sanded and painted.

The boomerang was a two person job. My boyfriend cut the shape out of florescent plexiglass and I sanded it down. The handle was made from insulation foam and worbla.
Personal Thoughts:
Words cannot express how happy I am to finally have this group come together. Skies of Arcadia is one of my all time favorite games! SKY PIRATES!! This has been a dream group of mine for a long time and it finally happened. We all had so much fun running around PAX attacking Valuan soldiers :)

A lot of people recognized us, which warmed my heart. Skies 2. Believe.
