I love going to the Renaissance Festival in costume. This year my friends and I went on Barbarian Invasion Weekend.
The first picture is the completed costume.
The second picture is how it looked before I added the breastplate and studding.
I used a faux suede fabric treated to look like leather for the costume. It was a great fabric to work with! For the boot covers I used vinyl.
The breastplate was made out of EZ-Form which is kind of like Plaster of Paris adhered to cloth that you cut into strips. You dip the strips into warm water and you’re able to form a mold. It dries in completely in 12 to 24 hours.
Pattern of the Week
Hippie meets grunge in this plaid top with flared sleeves and a round neckline.
Leopard and snakeskin are the new neutrals.
Member Project of the Week
Peneloping's hand beaded frock is a real stunner.
Make these brand new blouses and dresses in candy colored silk.
