About this Costume
Construction Details:
The leotard is handmade from two layers of swimsuit lining. The skirt and collar detach with heavy snaps. The choker, collar, and skirt are all made from Jewel Blue Casa Crepe, which has a lovely drape to it. The collar's stripes are 3 rows of ribbon carefully sewn on. The skirt is actually a large circle skirt pleated at the top and the top and bottom shaped properly. The "hiproll" is stuffed with rolled up fabric, but I never achieved the perfect point. The newer bows have been made from a cotton with two layers of heavy interfacing for stiffness. The newer brooch is made from a clear plastic sphere (I think these are for making Christmas ornaments?) painted with stained glass spray paint and the gold setting sculpted from Paperclay. The "chest armor" is simply thick foam sheets and closes in the back with Velcro. The bootcovers are built from blue and white PVC vinyl around a pump shoe. The newest tiara is made from a foam sheet, 3-D fabric paint, Rub 'n buff, and an acrylic gem painted blue. It is worn under the wig with elastic. I have been through 5 wigs with this costume! Each one began as a white or platinum blonde wig and was dyed. I made my own transformation bracelet, but have since bought an official one as well. No patterns used.
