Flash Gordon (Imperial Pilots Uniform) - Flash Gordon (movie)





Costume made for a Movie awards party in 2005 and later worn to MCM Expo's.

I'm a huge pulp sci-fi fan and can't resist the fun cheesy glam of the 80's Flash movie so just had to make this costume.
Obviously when I'm down to the tank top and leggings it's all a bit camp on me but what the hell :p

I only had a short time to make this costume and found it impossible to find any red pleather for the jacket in time, so I made it out of Velvet - Thought that choice still fitted the feel!

Can't find the correct reference pic's so you will just have to make do with the Japanses movie poster.
