Mistress of Pain

Diablo III


I'll upload this section later, but this costume asked me so so much work...

I'm pretty used to corset making/sewing now, so making corset and sleeves wasn't a too big job ;-) as usual I used black duchess satin, I had the chance to be able to get my fabric for a reasonable price!

The decorations are all hand sewed, as it's more precise and you can see less thread than when it's done with a machine.

For the legs: I used big plastic tubes, thermoformed them, and covered each one with 2 sprays of expansive foam then curved it.
Then I covered the legs with papier mâché and silicone to fill the holes (there are still some, I need to work a little more on the grey parts of the legs). I used foam to make the leg armors and decorations (demons' heads and stuff).

The legs needed to have 2 points to be linked to. One of them is my waist: I made a leather corset and put 2 metal rings per leg on it. Then made holes in the metal rings + PVC tubes and locked the legs in with the "butterflies" attaches. The the legs are touching the ground and roll with little wheels. Each leg is 1kg. But I absolutely didn't feel the weight thanks to the system.

I let a little bit of space between the corset and I, so the legs were moving a little bit around following my hips' movements.

For the big "ass", it's been made out of wood + insulation foam boards to make the intern skeleton. The I coated everything with expansive foam so it'd hold together. The abdomen is secured on me with 2 harnesses, it holds on the leather corset as well.

Thus the mechanism is hidden UNDER my corset ;-)
