This costume was a collaboration between my good friend Alex and I back in 2011. He is responsible for all my lovely chainmail sections.The bikini top is a custom built suede bra with scale maille sections sewed on top. The pauldrons are made from worbla and heat formed into shape. The pauldrons are attached to the bikini with Velcro. The necklace is made by me.
The bottoms are made with a leather look fabric and stiff interfacing for the 'belt' section. There are 2" gold hoops on each side. The scale maille is lined with a black cotton to avoid chainmail bites and generally make things more comfortable. I've updated the armbands, pauldrons and mics other pieces for Anime North 2013

Beautifully detailed in realism. Love the detail in the chainmail garb to the leather boots. Are your gloves polyester? Beautiful job with the metal armbands and leg guards for detail. Nicely done with the wig styling and the blood splatter in your mid-riff is pretty cool.
I must say you make a better Sonja than Bridgette Nielson did I feel sorry for the thief that tries to take your money satchel!!
I love your passion for cosplay realism and detail, Gillian.
Very sweet Red Sonja!
