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.

Red Sonja is such a great cosplay choice for strong, brave young ladies. Who couldn't love this no-nonsense-taking ass-kicking armored lass?

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:

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>

The sword is a wooden practice sword modified by my boyfriend years ago for his Altair costume. The swords hilt is a custom mod of Altair's sword hilt.

Very well done. I really like the texture of the chainmail parts, they kind of shimmer in the light.

Well you are beautiful and look amazing in that outfit. Though the image of you in a skirt and bikini top is a great image too. :) You and stargazer-gemini did a great job on the costume.

If they ever get around to doing a Red Sonja movie, they should tap you for the title role.

Wow, looks like a scene from a movie.

Excellent positioning, costume, lighting the ripples in the water is the icing on the cake, and your the cherry on top:)

Perfection.
Not only the very impressive costume but you look fantastic and very "She devil with a sword." Sonja always had a sense of humor, if she is written correctly, and the amused ghost of a smile on your face is very in character. Great realization of the character.

Wow, you look amazing! Certainly you put a lot of work into the armour (small as it is), as it really resembles the comic book version.
