In retrospect, the costume looked great at a distance, but up close... whoa. No frayed edges or anything, but it was made totally out of non-stretch materials. No boning, just safety pins to a strapless bra under the costume. And crayola magic mold is nifty stuff, but not for making armor pieces on boots. But the cool thing with the costume is that every little experiment I did to make a part worked the first time. Now if only that happened all the time!
