Xena Warrior Princess Cosplay

xena cosplay 1

Svetlana Quindt, a.k.a. Kamui Cosplay, decided to make a costume inspired by one of her childhood idols for Connichi: Xena. Kamui did a wonderful job pulling the Warrior Princess ensemble together. As usual, she made every aspect of the costume. She used materials such as pleather, Worbla (regular and the new Black Art), duct tape (for the corset pattern), and balsa wood for the build — Xena’s chakram is balsa wood covered with Worbla’s new Black Art. A few in-progress photos are below, including one showing how she made the knee-high boots. Kamui started with ankle boots and extended them. She explains:

after days of desperate search trough different shops and online stores I’ve finally decided to create them by myself. The base were regular leather shoes, which I put on and covered my whole leg in tape. That way I’ve got a perfect pattern, which I traced on fake leather and sewed the boot covers from. These were glued on with contact cement. Punched the leather and now need only some paint and leather strings.
