My completed Queen Myrrah build. Armor constructed from EVA foam. Corset made of leather. LED lights in chest, shoulders, and boots. Helmet molded by the wonderful David Wilson. All else constructed by me and my husband. Photo by my husband.
Hi, I'm making my own make-shift of a female locust for this year's con. I'm using MOST of Myrrah's basic armor, and adding a few things in to make it more locust like. But I was wondering, how did you to the under clothes for the armor with the red laces and such?
hi! the body suit was built using burgundy suede glued to black fabric. those individual pieces were then attached to a black skin suit and laced together with wax thread. the arms and legs are suede pieces that I cut and distressed, then glued to long underwear. the bodysuit was the longest process, taking about a week to pattern, sew, glue, and lace.
I just love all the detail in the costume, you can really tell how much work was put into it. At least you can't tell in the pictures that your eyes were watering ^__^ you just look like you're about to kick some serious butt.
