Wow, I am floored! I used to do all sorts of complicated costumes back in the day (you're talking original Power Rangers what, 15 years ago?) before cosplay was even a word, and I am just mesmerized by your talent. I also am quite glad you shared your costume-creation secrets because I have a little one now who has a crazy costume-making mother and now I know how to do things I didn't know how to do back in the day (so it looked good, but not great like yours.) Honestly I don't even know who the character is you're portraying and I don't care. The costume stands on its own as a gorgeous piece of art. Bravo!

Hey, there's nothing wrong with Power Rangers, haha! I'm going on 29, I totally remember those days! I have a real "community" perception of cosplay so I like to share what I learn. I know some people have "trade secrets" but I'm not making a dime on it so I don't care. So much of costuming is trial-and-error so I'm pleased if I can inspire others and steer them away from major headaches. Seriously, if you'd love to know how I made something, just send a note or make a comment. I'll try to respond ASAP.

Thanks for all of the kind words, it's super kind of you! :) And I really do look at cosplay/costuming as a form of art so your comments meant even that much more. :)

I'm so glad you and Tilly like my cosplays! :D

And thank you SO much for watching! I'll warn you that I don't update very often because my career has a way of stepping in front of my hobbies. I usually get around to making only one or two costumes a year. But even if I can't work on costumes, I'm still around to chat if you have any questions. :)

It's my career that likes to suck up all my time. Mostly because I have to always be in classes or attending additional training for it. It's just a lot of work.

I have one convention planned for next year and one costume in the works for it. I wouldn't have made plans yet but they asked me to be a judge and a bunch of friends are going. I'll continue to update whenever I can, though. ;)

OMG that armor is epic! Do you do commissions? I need to do some armor like that... Can you at least tell me what you used? :D

Thank you so much! ^_^ Unfortunately, I only get around to making one or two costumes a year so I can't take commissions at this time. (This costume took 9 months for example.) But thank you, it's very flattering to know you like my work!

The primary material that I used was craft foam. Everything you see in gold or white is foam, excluding some parts of the chest piece. (the cups were made out of giant, plastic christmas bulbs and the understructure itself was made out of fiberglass). But it's just layers and layers of the stuff. If I needed the foam to come to a point, or if I needed to clean up an edge, I would put a little bit of Model Magic (air dry clay) onto the area and smooth it out with water.

Wonderful, thank you! What did you finish it with?

All the pieces received two layers of white craft/school glue before painting. (This seals the foam and fills in slight imperfections.) After painting with acrylic paint, I finish with Liquitex matte varnish.

So. I do not know where your cosplay is from, series-wise. But BY GOD...IT IS SO. F*CKING. AMAZING.

Thank you! :D It's Sister Benedron from the World of Warcraft action figure collection. I've never seen her appear in game or in the comics so it leads me to believe she only exists as a figure. No matter to me, I always loved the priest class and she's a sweet design, even if it was just an interpretation.

What are the armor pieces made out of?

:iconxero-cosplay:
Xero-Cosplay Featured By Owner Apr 3, 2012  Hobbyist General Artist
Everything is craft foam except for the chest piece. It was made out of fiberglass to support the weight of the wings. There are a few random materials thrown in there too like xmas bulbs, wire, cardboard, model magic, frisbees, whatever was needed, lol.

The figure is just amazing! As I was working on this costume, I kept finding fun little details that I didn't know was there before. It really made it an interesting project.
