Xena-warrior princess

The first big themed party at school had the theme series. I went as Xena.
I made all the stuff just for this event, and all the leather things except the corset is made out of vegetable tanned cowhide from Italy.
The arm braces have a tooled pattern on them, so does the shoulder piece and arm rings.

Xena outfit - on doll
All the pieces have been cut by hand and there are a LOT of rivets in that skirt.
The corset is one layer coutil and one layer of soft leather from a old jacket I had laying around.

Xena outfit - shakra
I made the shakra out of paper clay which I put tinfoil on with decoupage technique.

Xena outfit - whip
I also braided a bull whip out of leftovers from my moose apron.

The arm braces are coloured, hand painted and then shaped with water to make them sit nicely around the arms.

It have also been coloured, hand painted and moulded to fit the body while wet.

Xena outfit - wire bra
A iron bra made out of wire. This one I ended up not using since it fitted so badly when I got the corset on.

Sadly I do not have any pictures of it on me.
