|Time Taken :||4 months|
|This costume was first made in the spring of 2004, since then its been remade and perfected as best i could, although i want to remake it again Awakening style.. |
Its made of a 4 way stretch pvc catsuit, customised with buckles at the neck and leatherette gauntlets. the corset is metal boned and made out of leatherette, with the 'holster' attached.
The coat is made from soft leatherette and totally handmade with design etched into the leatherette.
The boots were the only bought item. I also wear a wig now as my hair has grown since i first did the costume. I wear bright blue contact lenses and custom fangs.
All the etched design detail on the corset and coat was done by lightly melting the top layer of leatherette using a soldering iron then a layer of 3d fabric paint was applied to produce the raised etch effect of the leather. I now know the designs were embroidered and wish to do this when i remake the costume again.
