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
