Becoming Lady Skeletor

lady skeletor costume

Skeletor is He-Man’s archenemy. He has a frightening countenance that comes through even in cosplayer’s Constantine In Tokyo’s femme adaptation of the outfit. She designed the armor using Worbla and craft foam, sometimes using the foam as template to cut Worbla. It’s clear an impressive amount of work and creativity went into building this detailed costume. Here’s how she handled creating the crossbones on the armor’s breast plate:

– Skeletor has a pair of crossbones strapped across his chest. For my Lady Skeletor, I decided to attached the crossbones directly to the armor breast plate and forgo the straps – I don’t feel like it’s a design element that would translate well onto a (relatively) curvy lady! For my belt, I cut out a base belt from craft foam, then cut out the raised edges, glued those details onto the craft foam base, THEN covered the whole thing with ONE layer of Worbla. The process I used for creating the crossbones is identical to this. NOTE: If I had more time, I would have sculpted the crossbones out of clay, let it dry, and then attached it to the breast plate to give them even more dimension. I had 36 hours left at this point and not enough time to make that happen.

– I drew my desired crossbone shape onto paper, then transferred it onto craft foam. Basically, I wanted a circular base, then the cross bones, then a circular ring to set the gem into. So, there are several layers of craft foam here.
