You Shall Not Pass

A costume I made for myself to wear based off of a dark elf design from the game, Lineage II.

Photographed by Mike Kowalek at [link]

This costume was a big departure from what I normally like to do. It's revealing, it's all leather, and it's totally badass. Never have I spent so much time on costume pieces that only covered my behind. Almost every inch is covered in silver detailing which was using a micture of silver leafing, 3D silver fabric paint, and appliqué with silver fabric. This was also my first time working with leather and that is a whole other learning curve. The boned bustier was probably the most difficult part for me since I've never one anything like that before either.

I'm really happy with the way this costume turned out, and I'm in love with this photo from eleventhphotograph! We walked in sweltering heat in the middle of downtown Montreal just to shoot at this location, and it was totally worth it!

Painting my entire body grey was also a "fun" experience. I'd like to give a huge thanks to my hotel roomies, :meameaa: and Kristina with helping me become grey faster.
