Description

My main PAXPrime15 cosplay.

This was such a labor of love, in that I labored a lot, and loved every second of it. The whole process from concept to planning, to execution made me think I really would have enjoyed a career in like, costume production for theatre or film.

So, obvious Egyptian motifs, because Anubis.

The beaded collar alone represents almost four months of planning, collecting materials, sculpting, painting, and assembly work. It’s made of hematite, brass, czech glass, pearls, lapis lazuli, howlite, lava stone, onyx, sea glass, snow quartz, black agate, swarovski crystal, Nepalese bronze, and sculpey.

The bodice is muslin-lined acrylic fur, the sash is black sateen, hand painted in gold leaf, and each panel of the skirt is 3 yards of gathered, hand dyed linen, holy cow. The ears and tail were also dyed by hand to match my reference amiibo, and the cuffs and bracers were painstakingly rendered in craft foam, with wood clay spikes.

Wanted to make digitigrade stilts, but ran out of time. :(
