Savage Tales by gillykins Savage Tales by gillykins
I made this costume in April 2011 for a charity event and have never worn it to a convention. This photo was taken in July 2011 at the Toronto Cosplay Picnic, where I was in full costume.... for maybe 30 min. Otherwise I was tanning in a peasant skirt and chainmale bikini top.
Costume Construction:
This costume was a collaboration between my good friend ~Stargazer-Geminiand I. 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 craft foam 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.

And it was probably the best 30 min. a Red Sonja fan could ask for there. Awesome job on the picture and finding all the materials used for this.
Is that a real replica sword made of metal or a different material??
I swear, in this photo you look about 6'0" tall. Just saying :shrug:

The sword is a plastic/resin prop sword

What would you like to know about the sword?
rikjohnson Featured By Owner May 20, 2012
name, maker...
So many people use "sword-like-objects" that when I see one that looks real ,I am curious as to if it is!

Besides, everyone else comments on how hot you look so I thought I'd be different<g>
