Symphonia Cosplay was inspired by the art of Hannah Alexander to create an art nouveau Megara costume. The result is purple, artful, and fierce. She made the cosplay by hand and it involved painting the fabric by hand and adding embroidery (all the dark purple parts in the above photo), designing the armor and bodice piece and painting it and adding hundreds of teensy tiny beads by hand. Just the embroidery part took 14 hours, so that gives you an idea of how long the entire costume took to construct. She used black and regular Worbla for the chest plate:
I used worblas Black and finest Art from Cast4Art and Stucco-spray from Presto to smooth it (a tip from Lellynardo Cosplay) and it worked out quite well (except I burned the nose of my shoudlder plate XD). I never made something like that with warblas and so it was a great opportunity to finally make classic armor parts.
On the last picture you see the unsmooth stucco-spray on it, atm I´m already painting it.
You can see the picture she’s referring to just below.
