Costume made and modeled by
Donna Troy is the most amazing female super hero out there, essentially the equivalent of Jet Li in "The One." I couldn't pass up making a costume of hers, so I chose her 2005 Troia outfit.
The suit is made from a single piece of black stretch velvet. I glued all the rhinestones on by hand (around 2000) to get Troia's signature starry look. The earrings, armbands, and gauntlets are cardboard covered in chrome tape. I used silver spandex for the boot covers and belt, and craft foam for the belt buckle.
This costume is relatively simple, but I adore it and can't wait to make more costumes of Donna Troy!
