This Halloween I decided to attempt a ‘nearly accurate’ recreation of the Mord’Sith costumes from the TV show Legend of the Seeker. I’m a practical sort. I wasn’t willing to spend a small fortune or be massively uncomfortable for the sake of accuracy. I chose to use a spandex body suit instead of head to toe thin red leather and I used pleather for the corset and gorget (neck protection) instead of real leather. The biggest challenge by far was not draping the pattern (which I did), sewing the pleather and embroidering the edges to resemble tooling (which I also did) but finding a source for reasonably accurate buckles. I ended up approximating the style in order to save time on shipping and much money.
