Lady Sif Costume

In just a few hours, Lady Sif of Asgard will make her first appearance on Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. But you don’t have to wait! Check out this fantastic costume by cosplayer Siffy of The Sisters Mischief. She’s been wanting to make a Sif costume for a couple of years and finally got around to it recently. She did a great job with every aspect from the armor to the scratches to the wig styling:

There are lots of pieces to this beast. Faux leather leggings and boots, which I modified, a satin underskirt with slits for flexibility, a leather underdress which was dyed, patterned, sewn, beaten and weathered (it includes a silk duponi panel and a chainmail panel of over 20,000 links)…and then the armor itself, which is all worbla and wonderflex with a wee bit of craft foam here and there for stability. Getting this sucker smooth was super hard and I’m still not 100% pleased with it, but using acrylic over spray paint and gesso (with some rigorous sanding in between layers) helped a bit. Lastly, the wig is a black lace front from eBay, and the scratches/bruises were made with a Ben Nye bruise wheel.
