Cosplayer MsBernadetteB is known for her Xena: Warrior Princess costume, but sometimes she sports a different take on the character. The above photo features her as Xena Warrior Princess Princess. The ensemble combines the armor and weaponry with a large ball gown style skirt (it’s the width of a hallway) and a perfectly themed tiara (it’s made from mini chakrams). The dress looks heavy but also like so much fun to wear. And the creation of the costume is a team effort. The creativity of many makers came together here with the ball gown by Chad Hatter, the Xena armor by Todd’s Costumes, a corset by Castle Corsetry, a wig by Outfitters Wig, and a tiara by Igor Pinsky.
