He-Man and the Masters of the Universe

Description

This was my costume for the German Cosplay Championship (DCM) finals at Frankfurt Bookfair 2010. It was originally planned for a Masters of the Universe group at Dragon*Con, with pixiekitty as She-Ra, Mirromaru as Catra, and Gamina as Shadow Weaver (they all looked awesome, btw! ^_^)

The costume is a spandex & vinyl leotard worn over a corset, because those 80s cartoon heroines all seem to have a wasp waist o_o I hated working with this non-stretchy, golden vinyl material, but it was the only thing I could find that came in this color (which is spot on and looks great in photos and on stage.)

The wig is custom-colored (burnt umber & red dye on hot orange fiber), and it's my first (finished) lace front project; i.e. the front hairline is hand-tied on tulle to create a natural-looking widow's peak. Needless to say, it was very time-consuming, but I really like how it turned out!

I also made He-Man's sword for our skit, an 80s revival spoof which - apparently - everyone thought was hilarious. I've never gotten this many positive reactions for a masquerade skit before, so I'm really glad we picked these costumes for the DCM finals - even though we didn't win an award^^

Cost: EUR 215 / ~US$ 280
