This costume is lovingly nicknamed "the Golden Nightmare" due to the yards of gold fabric that harrassed me throughout it's creation. The armor was made of fun foam, paint, and fabric. The sword is made of cardboard. I don't know that I will ever have the heart to retire this one, it took forever to make and I love wearing it.
There are more pictures in my gallery. Someday I hope to have a nice photoshoot with it :)
