Warrior Princess by icequeenserenity Warrior Princess by icequeenserenity
She was Amira
A Mighty Dancer
Forged in the heat of talent!

This shot was taken by Tim during Amira's double-sword dance as Xena: Warrior Princess. She's amazing! It was an honor to help make her costume.

The performance video is available to watch on my Youtube channel here: [link] and directly right here: [link]

:iconicequeenserenity: (I) made Xena's dress
:iconrikusworld: made Xena's armor (all of the lovely golden details) and edited the photo

Amira [link] is the fantastic model and performer

:iconkadajshinra: Special thanks for this costume go to our good friend ~KadajShinRa. She saved the day by adding some of the finishing touches (brads, lacings, and eyelets) when ~RikusWorld and I were busy making last minute fittings for the dress and armor the night before the performance. Bravo, and thank you so much ~KadajShinRa!

:iconkitten-of-woe: Thank you very much for the DD! What a wonderful surprise!

Warrior Princess by *icequeenserenity. Xena: Warrior Princess costume that is true to the design and craftsmanship of Academy Award winning costume designer Ngila Dickson's original. The only exception is that *icequeenserenity made hers out of pleather rather than leather so that it would remain flexible and lighter in weight for the model here, professional bellydancer Amira (looking strikingly like Lucy Lawless), who can be seen in the dress while doing the double sword dance in this video (with *icequeenserenity as Callisto and ~RikusWorld as Gabrielle). Xena's armor and weapons were made by ~RikusWorld. ( Featured by Kitten-of-Woe )

:hug: I was both happy and lucky to work on this costume with ~RikusWorld. We both love Xena and we want to help bring her back! :D I wish they would play the show more often, even if it's all reruns now. It was such an amazing, hilarious, and heartfelt show.
