Flemeth - Embrace Destiny by icequeenserenity Flemeth - Embrace Destiny by icequeenserenity
F L E M E T H
There are men who embrace destiny; these are the ones that change the world forever

Another shot of the Flemeth costume that I made and wore for Anime Boston 2011. This was an intense costume with hundreds of silver embellishments, a fully structured, boned and busked corset top, a billowing skirt with a train, horned wig, and full arm and leg armor. It was invigorating.

I went through some very hard times in my personal life when I was making this costume; I lost my mother, who I love deeply. She was one of the most beautiful and important people in my life. The creative process that went into it was a much needed escape and served as a filter for all of those raw emotions that I was feeling. I hope that it would have made my mother proud to have seen this; I always used to show her my finished costumes and they would make her smile. I hope that, somewhere in the universe, she is still watching.

This costume was lovingly made and worn by me, :iconicequeenserenity:
This gorgeous photo was taken by my stunning Lady Hawke, :iconrikusworld:

For a 400 years old Dragon you're in pretty good shape if I may say so...

Excellent! I've been planning to do a Flemeth costume myself. May I ask, how did you do the hair piece? That's the hardest part for me to figure out. Great job on the costume!

Awesome! :thumbsup: The hair pieces were made of wire mesh that I sculpted into the shape of horns. I then covered the structures with duct tape and painted them white (I was planning to use plaster, but I figured that it would be too heavy and throw the wig off-balance.) Once the paint was dry, I wrapped white hair extensions around the horns, then sewed them all into the wig individually. The process took two (very late :giggle: ) nights. I wish you the very best of luck with your Flemeth costume! Please feel free to post a link on my page when you're finished; I would love to see the finished project. :)

Excellent idea! I was thinking of using wire but couldn't figure out how best to do it. Wire mesh is a great idea. Thanks so much!
