Are you ready to be a Warrior of Light and defend your Empire?
I loved working on this project! As a designer there is nothing more challenging or satisfying than bringing a costume to life which has never been made before.
Often times an artist may create a sketch of a character without thinking how this can translate onto the human body.
The challenge was to create something wearable and functional but to retain the “character” of the Bard and I was deeply honored to bring her Fantasy Bard’s costume into reality.
So here is the story of how I brought the Bard to life!
My client and I worked closely to bring her Bard’s costume to life for her to wear at the FanFest in Las Vegas.
The Bard’s costume featured a series of organic and inorganic fabrications that help bring her character to life.
For the organic effect I selected some unusual and hard to find fabrics including silk noil, trimmed with vintage Peau de Soie and wool Challis.
There fabrics which are very hard to find or no longer manufactured. I coupled this with more contemporary futuristic materials such as holographic Mystique spandex for the appliqués.
Much attention was placed on the details in order to replicate the character’s costume as accurately as possible.
Yes, the Bard found the Lodestone and I am sure the costume helped!”
