Susan Sto Helit
Last Updated: 01-24-2011
I decided to make this costume for one of Terry Pratchett's book signings and for Halloween (my friend was Ponder and my fiancÚ was Rincewind). The goofy looking guy in some of the photos is my Rincewind. ;)
This costume isn't complete- I still need to get a wig, make a Death of Rats, find an hourglass, and make a better scythe, but the clothing part is done.
I didn't actually sew this costume; I bought the bodice, skirt, and cloak. The rest of the costume includes striped stockings, knee high black boots, a stuffed raven, a skull choker necklace, skull earrings, an omega brooch that I made out of clay, and a Sto Helit pendant (I had made one out of clay, but now I have a silver one, as well). When I wear this, I also paint a black streak in my hair and paint her birthmark on my cheek with makeup. (I've since gone back to my natural hair color, so I'll be getting a wig.)
I'm actually about 45 pounds lighter now than I was when I wore the costume in the photos (they're a few years old and I was much pudgier then), so I really should get new pictures one of these days. Can't do much about the glasses, though; those are going to appear in most photos because I can't see without them, lol.
I'll get better pictures of this later. :)
