A Regal Queen Hippolyta Costume

Beverly Downen of Downen Creative Studios is no stranger to designing and making intricate and imposing costumes. We’ve seen her before as the evil queen Ravenna from Snow White and the Huntsman, and now she’s transformed into a different sort of queen. Her latest costume is Queen Hippolyta. She based the design on the character’s look in the upcoming Wonder Woman film. The movie’s not out yet, and we’ve only seen a little footage, which means Beverly didn’t have a ton of reference material to work with. That didn’t stop her.

She crafted the armor by hand, starting with paper templates. Just assembling the shield required multiple layers to get the embellishments just right — there are half circles and birds in featured on the front of the shield. She transferred the paper templates to foam and then carved in details like the feathers on the birds’ wings.

Look at these photos to see the evolution of the shield:
