Description
Worn at Dragon Con 2013 this year.
I made this as Lucy Lawless was at the convention and i wanted to cosplay as one of her characters for ages. This costume was quite easy to make. I bought the base red cowl neck dress, then draped a lilac saree over it whilst on the a duct tape dummy. Folding, pleating and pining the saree into shape(this is exactly how they did it in the show for many of the costumes). It's meant to look like the gown is just draping over the body.
The jewellery was made from found jewellery and jewellery findings. They match jewellery worn in the show. I was able to find good references as the costumes were sold at auction recently and there were lots of great photos.
i styled a lace front wig to echo the styles worn in the series.
The costume isnt an exact match for one gown worn, but a custom one based on many worn in the many seasons of the series.
