Costume Information

Cost : 100
Time Taken : 1 month

This will be a costume unlike I've ever done before, I've designed the costume based the alien queen, it'll be a sexy tight costume, I will be making the head piece, and tail, I will be keeping the project quite secret as I don't want my idea nicked. It will be a surprise for mcm october :D let the creation begin!

For October Expo 2012 I will be making a tail, and redoing the over coat, because Its not that good and doesnt stay on properly so I'm going to make a puffer jacket and take the spikes off the original one

Thankyou peeps! much appreciated!

@sandysuicide I was actuallygoing ot send her some fan mail, with this design and ask if she'll wear it!

fffff this is an excellent adaption of the Alien Queen design. The overall look and shape of your costume is great-- everything works with your body type and strongly evokes the source material. That photo by Paul Jacques is a particularly impressive capture of the work I think. Your Alien Queen reads like a sensual-malevolent oil slick with teeth, and that's just badass.
