A photo that shows off more of the costume!

This costume took a couple months to make. The purple snakeskin spandex is actually from 3 awful clubbing dresses that I found online, because purple snakeskin spandex apparently does not exist in yardage form (I looked everywhere!). The straps and detailing on the coat and shoes are made out of white pleather and purple suede. The teddy, thigh inserts, and cuff are all made from the same mauve lace, and the teddy has a built in bra. The dicky, gloves, and choker were sewn from a burgundy cotton.

The pauldron was sculpted out of Klean Klay Firm, molded in silicone, and cast in resin, and her gauntlet is made of sintra. The finger tip armor is actually thimbles, apoxie sculpt, and zip ties. The ankle armor was made out of craft foam for minimal weight. Lastly the sword hilt was sculpted and cast in resin, the handle is apoxie sculpt and MDF, and the blade is sintra. I currently only have the untransformed sword, but I'll be making the whip version soon.

This is such a lovely costume. Your shape certainly helps make it so, but still it is a lovely creation.

This is so gorgeous - and man, I know what you mean about some fabrics just NOT existing in convenient form >:( It's such a pain, but at least this was a costume that lent itself to tiny dresses that got cut up! Your sword and gauntlet are stunning, really clean and crisp.

As awful as the 3 clubbing dresses may have been this outfit is definitely greater than the sum of its parts. Hell, I think I like your look more than the in game character, and that's really saying something!
