F L E M E T HThere 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,
