|I have always been interested in Ancient Egypt, so it's no surprise really that I love Stargate SG-1: the whole concept was built upon Ancient Egyptian mythology, before it branches out to other cultures as well.|
The System Lords in particular are interesting from a fashion standpoint because they still dress in fashions typical of the culture they represent...and in the beginning series the majority of these were Egyptian 'gods'.
Hathor has always been my favourite Goa'uld, because she worked differently to the others. While the others reigned with fear and terror, she brought her followers to adore her and controlled them through love, so to speak. That's not to say that she wasn't evil. I mean, bitch was crazy XD.
I adore her outfit also so as soon as I get my hands on a decent sewing machine, I will be finding an event to match this with!
I plan on mainly doing her outer dress, but I also want to do her base outfit (the one that she wears underneath the dress) and her headdress and kara kesh (hand device) if I can :).
For October Expo 2012.
Hathor was the mate of Ra and the mother to Heru'ur. Stranded on Earth after the Tau'ri rebellion, she became imprisoned in her sarcophagus for centuries before being set free. Leaving Earth, she attempted to rebuild her power base, before being killed in a confrontation with SG-1. (From the Stargate Wiki).
