2010

It consist 2 parts with cape the dress and waistband.
The dress and cape are made of cheap satin fabric. The waistband is made of polyester/cotton fabric and I glued black ribbons on it.
The gold details are biastape, painted gold because I wanted the colour to match the headpiece.
Headpiece and shoulder armor are made of foam. The crystals are made of transparent plastic with glass paint.


2011

The costume consist of 4 parts: the top, waistband, the bottom and skirt.
I bought 3 transparent plastic medallion shapes for the round crystals. 5 round and 5 egg shaped separators to make the rest of the crystals and I modified these with a fretsaw.

I painted them with glass paint.
To create the gold details I used gold faux leather fabric because it was easy to glue and to cut it out.
