I decided to do this costume for the sole reason that I had bought some wonderflex and wanted to play with it. Umi had always been a favourite of mine, and this costume was just too pretty to pass up.
The armor is Wonderflex with paperclay over it, the jewels are Fimo. The wig was hand dyed, and there is hand dyed silk for the train. It was sort of a crazy costume to make, but I think it paid off in the end!
