This costume is an original character design made by me, including hip armor, leather corset and some awesome horns. I've had this sea green/blue scaled leather hide for years and I can never figure out what to do with it, so I designed this entire costume around it.
The horns and winged ear pieces are made from Polymer clay in orange and turquoise, hand sculpted. They are attached to a headpiece of foam that goes through the wig and is pinned on the under side so it is easily adjustable and detachable and completely hidden.
The armor pieces are made from craft foam, the small pieces drawn from filigree images and then cut with a soldering iron, coated with about 5-6 layers of Mod Podge and then primed with white primer (spray paint) then painted with acrylics. The edging pieces were "stamped" by applying heat in sections and then stamping it with a border acrylic stamp.
There are 2 petticoats under this giant skirt, and the vest is made from real leather.
