About the Project
The breastplate and other armor parts
First of all, I made a sketch of the whole outfit. For the breastplate I used black Worbla. I wrapped myself into transparent foil and tape. Then I traced the pattern with a pen onto it and cutted it out. I transfered the pattern to the Worbla sheet and formed it with the heat gun on my puppet. This was the moment when I saw that this wouldn’t work. So I googled for corset patterns to get an idea how I should make the pattern. The second attempt was succesfull and I was able to put every piece together. I was very lucky to have this mannequin because it helped me a lot with the breastplate. Then I added the details with the leftovers and made holes like a corsage in the back where I fastened the breastplate.
I used woodglue to prime the whole thing and acrylic paint for the colors. In the end I sealed it with a protective polish. I made my own rhinestones with Worbla Crystal Art and attached them with hot glue to the breastplate.
For the arm bracelets and the collar I used the same method. Then I glued the fabric to the bracelets.
I had no sewing experience back then and that’s why the skirt is very poorly made. I just wrapped the fabric around my hip and sewed an elastic band on.
The ears and tail
The fabric for the ears was terrible. When you’ve cut it, little particles of it were flowing through the air. It was everywhere. I created a pattern of the ears with paper to look if I like it with my head, then transfered it to the fabric. I added wire with hot glue so that the ears stand up. I attached them to a headband. I did the same with the tail. Cutting out the shape and adding wire so it keeps it’s shape.
