Not So Savage Aela the Huntress Costume

In Skyrim, Aela the Huntress is a fierce Nord werewolf. Cosplayer Monika Lee put together her take on the character’s costume last winter using Worbla, epoxy resin, fabric, faux fur, and chainmail. She made everything except the bow – it was crafted by PVC Armory – and started with the wig. She said she often finds and styles the wig first because it’s the easiest way for her to get in the mindset of the character. This is how she tackled the bodysuit/skirt portion of Aela’s costume:

The clothing portion of the costume was probably the most difficult. I patterned everything essentially from scratch and tried to work a V-plunge bra into her weirdly oriented strap thing in order to feel more secure….

I sewed the skirt portion separate of the bodice portion and attached those and began figuring out how to strap it together. The belt around the waist actually snaps in place and the top halter piece snaps as well so I can easily take it off/on.
