This costume is an original armored design I created based off of The Scarlet Witch. I spent about 2 weeks on this design and went through several iterations because I painted a final version.
The costume in total took me about 4 months to make from start to finish. (This was with me working about one day a weekend and on the evenings after work for a few hours).
The armor was made all with Worbla and an extensive smoothing process which consisted of wood filler, gesso, and primer. (I sanded between each layer, and the gesso and primer were both layered twice).
The thigh high boots, leotard, gloves, and cape were all custom made patterns for this costume. All of the gems were cast in a light pink dyed resin and the LED's were put into the resin while it was curing. All of the gems light up and are running off of 3V coin batteries hidden underneath the armor pieces.
The corset is all worbla, and consists of both back lacing and a zipper in front that is hidden behind a plate that snaps over it. It needed to open in 2 areas so I could take it on and off.If you guys have any questions about my process please let me know! I am currently in the works of a more extensive explanation for my website .
