Raquel Gothic

Figure- Garage Kit custom colors

Last Updated: 08-06-2012

Raquel Gothic is a figure. It is sold fully painted or as a garage kit.

This has to have been one of the hardest costumes yet. I don't think I was prepared fully when making it.

The wings are made out of cardboard which I applied resin. I spend days sanding the layers down to make it as smooth as possible. I would have applied bondo, but I didn't have time. Man, time was my enemy. As for the details I used epxoy sculpt, puff paint and foam rope around the edges.

I made the dress... and that's all I'm gonna say about it as I'm not proud of my handy work. I spent so much time on the wings that I had to rush the sewing.

The wig is an Arda Jeannie. I altered it to make it my poor small head. I need a larger head to fit their wigs!

This costume I certainly had a love/hate relationship. Feel free to ask questions about construction and I'll do my best to answer!
