Kitten with a blade

The warrior princess costumes progress

The warrior princess costume for Norwescon is coming together! Last weekend I found this treasure at Red Light for only $60:

I'm going to use the skirt with the two tops that I posted in this post. tresdon ordered the sexy chainmail top (in that post) for me for my birthday! And I just ordered the metal bra to wear under it.

Below is a fast and sloppy pasted together version of what the costume might look like:

I still need something to wear under the chainmail skirt. The chainmail skirt is super heavy and it actually causes the waist band part to dig into my skin from the weight of the skirt. So I'll need a pelt or something soft to wear under it to absorb the weight of it on me. I'll also need some warrior boots. Almost every pair of my massive boot collection is lace up style granny or goth boots. None seem quite right for a warrior princess. We'll need to get pelt scraps and I'll scour the thrift stores for some boots I can convert.
