Empyrean Empress - Original costume design

Meet the Empyrean Empress!
This is an original costume I thought up a few months ago after playing with EVA Foam samples and feeling inspired to incorporate armor into a fantasy gown.
90% of the materials you see are from my collections available at JOANN Fabric & Craft stores. It was kinda crazy to realize that I had released enough cosplay materials in the past year to make a full costume from sample yardage in my house lol!

I’ll share more photos, including lots of progress shots, and I will do a making-of video as well.

Huge shoutout to Amazon Mandy for assisting me with the sewing and allowing me to breathe through a hyper-hectic summer.

Thank you all so much! It’s been a while for sure! I could only handle keeping up with so many platforms but social media is soul-sucking sometimes and I really missed dA!
