Debut: Dragon*Con 2009
When a few friends of mine said, "Hey, let's do some awesome
loud super bright 80s costumes: SHE-RA" I was all over it.
She-Ra was very possibly one of my favorite shows as a kid; I had a
lot of the playsets and action figures and basically just loved the
crap out of the lot of them. Flutterina was a fun character to
choose because I love wearing wings.
I made essentially a boned corset-style bodice with the skirt
attached from a super bright and shiny orange taffeta. The
wings were made with iridescent tissue lamé and accented with blue
pieces appliquéd on with Wonder Under, as well as the design on the
The wig was a nice purple wavy style to which I added several
additional wefts to create more of that super 80s body. The
armbands were fun foam covered with scrapbooking vinyl sticker
This was a fun costume to wear at D*C and to see my other She-Ra
girls. I also got to meet actor Doug Jones while wearing it!
