Warrior Princes Xena - I'm ready! by KamuiCosplay Warrior Princes Xena - I'm ready! by KamuiCosplay
Yeah, Xena! My childhood hero and my inspiration! 
After 2 weeks of work she was SO fun to cosplay and honestly I wondered why I didn't create the costume earlier, ha ha! 

The whole costume is made completely from scratch, even the corset pattern and the boots! I've used furniture pleater for all leather parts and even dyed them by hand. Armor parts were made out of craft foam, EVA foam and Worbla and were painted with acrylics. Would love to have them out of real leather and metal, but well, EVA foam and Worbla is clearly easier to work with. For the sword and chakram I've used balsa wood, which I cut and sanded and covered with Worbla afterwards. These parts were also painted by hand. 
My wig is from 
mycostumes if you are curious, also had be to styled at first.
