She-Ra: Princess of Power Glimmer Costume

glimmer costume 1

She-Ra: Princess of Power has a special place in my heart. I owned all the She-Ra action figures my parents could find when I was a kid, and though I often see She-Ra costumes at convention, I don’t spot many other characters from the animated series. Kelldar joined a whole She-Ra cosplay group though and she dressed as Glimmer, the Princess of Bright Moon. Gilmmer had some of the coolest powers and my favorite costume. Kelldar (featured previously on Adafruit here) used the following patterns to construct the costume: Simplicity 5006, Simplicity 4433, and KwikSew 2793. Here’s how she constructed the clothing portions of the costume:

Bodice: For my costume, I started out by making a base corset out of cotton & canvas. I found some purple suede I liked and covered it in that – I have never had more issues sewing leather than I did with this suede (even the leather I used for my Boushh pants didn’t cause so many issues!). Of course after breaking several needles getting it and my boot covers put together, I for what-ever masochistic reason decided I wanted to embroider the leather corset, too. It took a pair of pliers and a heavy duty thimble but I managed.

Boots/Pants/Shorts: My boots I bought online and repainted the sole, then re-covered them in my purple leather. The pants and bottoms I made of stretch milliskin – I dyed both of them – they were originally both a light blue. I darkened up the blue for the pants (and also embroidered them, too), and the bottoms a darker purple to match my leather. (I made the bottoms since at the time I wasn’t sure I was going to do a skirt ala the action figure, or bodice/bottoms ala the cartoon – but I ended up wearing both.)

The armor pieces were all made from Worbla.
