A Girl Dressed As a Stargate

No matter how many costumes I see at conventions and online, I always stumble across ones I’ve never seen before. It amazes me. This incredible wearable Stargate by Nyima, a.k.a. Nyima-chan on DeviantArt, falls into that category. She came up with the idea for a Stargate costume on a whim and didn’t waste any time putting it together. She doesn’t have any notes about construction, but it needs to be shared for the sheer inventiveness involved.

The Stargate ring is likely made from foam and carved; it appears as though she included each and every one of the symbols on the dial. The chevrons light up, and you could use LEDs or EL wire to achieve a similar look. While I’m impressed by the Stargate, I’m especially taken with the way the blue dress is attached so it looks like the event horizon. Wow.
