Items used for costume (including those used in making it)
-metallic morph suit
- high heeled shoes
-'spanx' style pants
-Sculpey polymer clay
Chose 7of9 as she is the epitome of brilliance - her demeanor is astounding and I really enjoy every episode where she plays an major part.
The outfit was not well thought out (other than the prosthetics). I ordered the suit only a week beforehand, and it was a fair few sizes too big and totally the wrong shaped, so a friend and I had to take it in an alter it ALOT. Even then I wasn't happy with it.
The ripped section of the costume were made using the spanx style pants hoited up to under my bra - the lightweight rope was then superglued into the correct shape. P.S. NEVER ADHERE SUPERGLUE TO PLASTIC BASED FABRICS. I BURNT MYSELF!
I really enjoyed making the prosthetics, and out of all of the 7of9's I saw on the weekend, mine were by far the most accurate.
I recieved many many compliments on the day, probably had upwards of 1000 photos taken.
- never do anything last minute (hehe..)
- never wear heels of more than 5inches which you cannot swap for more comfortable shoes.
-always try to be in the best body condition or you'll look pretty bad in pics !
-practise your photo poses before the expo!
