Character/Costume Description

This took six months of trials and tribulations to actually make. I sculpted it all in plasticine, and a few found items, then molded in silicon with plaster cases and cast in a variety of resins as I was learning what I could and couldn't work with!
I wound up fibreglassing the bikini proper to give it some flex and be very strong and difficult to break.
The skirt is a silk I dyed to match. I tested the colour under dark, light and flash lighting conditions and it changes colour under all three conditions in much the way the original skirt does.
I literally glue myself into this costume at conventions with Prosthetic Aide to prevent any accidental pulls on the skirt.
