Made a mock-up of the top that goes over the dress, need to make a bunch of tiny holes in it for decoration. Adjusted the dress a little, though I did that after the picture. After the top is done, it’s the necklace (for which I’ve found a high resolution reference pic and two amber stones that look almost exactly like the ones Sura wears) and a few minor adjustments here and there, so perhaps the next update on this costume will be a full overview of the finished costume
No clue what happened to the pixels that are me, but I swear at some point I’ll get me a proper camera for progress pictures (even though the one on my phone is actually really good, just not very nice to use for costume pics). Anyway! More progress on Sura from Spartacus: Blood and Sand. The underdress is now nearly finished, the leg band is finished and I’m starting on the top and necklace tomorrow. I also have a dark brown shoulder wrap/cape similar to the one Sura wears in the first episode, because October might just be a little chilly in this outfit.
Progress! The skirt is nearly finished, I’ve weathered/frayed the edges but I want them a little more frayed at the longest part of the skirt. Leg band is finished too. We’re getting there :3
oh my frick I just found out the people who took pictures of Sura’s dress on a mannequin put it on the mannequin backwards, or at least they put the blue underdress on backwards:
frilly part at the front due to it having a wrap dress/wrap skirt type design
no frilly part at the back
dress on mannequin:
no frilly part at the front
frilly part at the back
And this is why I have a full album of costume reference pictures for every costume, and don’t just go off of one picture. Yikes.
Annnd I found the perfect fabrics for Sura and for Domino’s bridesmaid dress. I already had most of my marerials for Cable & X-Force Domino and DA: Inquisition Morrigan, so I’ll be working on a bunch of costumes for WLFCC.

Yes. Yes yes. Yes yes yes. Yes yes yes yes. Yes yes yes yes yes yes. Yes.
I uh…thank you?
Just finished making this Valkyrie headdress for our show with the horses at the end of this month (at Fantasiafest). Two more to go!
And of course, I had to take the throne (with friends). Protected by the Umbrella Corporation, even ;D
First look at my newest Daenerys costume from the episode Mockingbird. I’m planning to add a whole detailing to the shoulders and straps, so stay tuned!

I mean -insert mandatory professional comment here-
Jokes aside, though; the outfit isn’t 100% finished yet but I took it for a test run because I have to wear it on my horse at some point and know what to improve now. And I met these awesome people at Epicon today, among others! Got a lot of compliments about the outfit, so I’ll continue my workout schedule and working on the details of the dress a bit more for the real deal ;)
