This was one of the first costumes I ever made! It is a beautiful silk velvet with applique embroidery that I painstakingly tacked on by hand. The wig was a monster task, and of course it is nothing impressive in comparison to the things you see on people now, but for it’s time it was a beast to undertake! This costume has been with me through many an adventure, including a guerilla photoshoot in the ruins of a castle in Germany. What a rush it is cosplaying as Maria Renard when you’re climbing the steps of an old castle!
