that I will probably not make and my excuses
General Kala – Flash Gordon
I adore all the costumes in Flash Gordon (1980) . Fetishy, kitschy and OPULENT with a record breaking budget. Whenever I feel like I hate nerds and pop culture in general I watch this and am reborn.
Kala’s outfit is (like many in this movie) incrusted with bugle beads – and it’s not some slip of a mini dress, look at the cossak sleeves on that thing. Don’t get me wrong, I enjoy beading in small doses – but I’m weak and solidly beaded fabric like that starts at $300 a yard.
My excuse : MONEY
Captain Phasma – The Star Wars
Another bad bitch. I’m so sorry they threw you in the trash, when you are a TREASURE.
I enjoy making armour, but something with so many pieces, all with the technique, finish and colour is daunting. Cohesion is hard.
(I’m five feet tall, but I am sure no one will notice…shhhh)
Howling Banshee – Warhammer 40k
This one has been on my to cosplay list for AEONs (I ended up doing a Farseer instead)
…THEN a Dark Eldar Hekatrix…procrastination
I just love the design so much, I want to do it justice <3
