This is the only picture I have of this costume! I still have the costume but haven’t worn it in 2.5 years. It is crazy how we hold on to things. And how much costumes cost to make. This in not my most expensive costume but is up there on the price. Mainly because of the leather bra piece and I have only worn it once!
Design: Originally the top was going to be made of Worbla/Wonderflex but then I found a great deal on the leather top at a con and decided to use that. It saved me a ton of time by buying it! And there is nothing wrong with buying a costume or pieces of one depending on your situation! If anyone tells you otherwise ignore them. As a graduate student saving time was important at the time. I won’t deny I spent more time on costumes than I should have with the amount of homework I had during this time in my life!
The original design was influenced by Xena: Warrior Princess. A teenage icon and inspiration to me.
Things I learned with this costume: Never use a real hair brush on a wig! It will end badly!
Here is the most recent variant of this costume worn at the Washington Ren Faire 2016
