The Making of a Queen Hippolyta Costume

We showcased Beverly Downen’s incredible Queen Hippolyta costume back in March. Even though it was completed before the release of Wonder Woman, she nailed the regal and fierce look of the costume. She recently shared details of making each aspect of the ensemble on her website. It took her about four months to construct the entire costume, but with her notes and patterns, it could take someone else less time.

She designed the patterns for the armor portion of the costume (and the tiara and shield) from paper and traced them onto EVA foam and black Worbla. You can see how the vambraces took shape in the below photos. If you want to try your hand at making a Hippolyta costume, you can get patterns from Downen Creative Studio on Etsy.

Get full details on all aspects of the Queen Hippolyta build at Downen Creative Studios’ website. This post specifically focuses on the armor portion of the costume.
