About this Costume
Construction Details:
12 foot wings...35 lbs on my back coming out of a corset. It took up my entire living room for 3 months. Its the most insane thing I've done. I started with the helmet right after Christmas 06; the helmet itself took about 3 months to complete. The helmet and bracers are made in a similar fashion; I used dry wall spackle over foam and sanding it down. The bodysuit was dyed three times to get the right color. For the dress, I used 28 yards of fabric (14 for the lining and 14 for the dress.) The dress has a horsehair hem (6 inches) to make the edge of the dress fall more flat and stand out. The gold squares and triangles are fabric glued onto the dress as well. Good times!
Personal Thoughts:
The first time I saw the whole thing on myself was at AX right before the masq craftsmanship judging. I scared myself, having contacts and blue skin. Ultima looks beautiful in the artwork, but as a cosplay, she's scary. lol. I don't think I'll ever do a costume this big again; it was stressful to deal with at AX. Between masq and photoshoot appointments and the scale of this costume, I pretty much had to plan out my whole day in advance.
