Instead of uploading individual pictures, I made a collage of all of the little bits that make up the Bayonetta costume.
The arm bands in the top left corner were made from fabric of the catsuit. I contemplated hair extensions or giving them a hair-like appearance, but it didn't feel right. I based my Bayonetta design off of art concepts of the character. The arm bands were fluid and connected as one piece instead of individual strands, so I wanted to stick with that. The moon pieces are made of foam board and painted within an inch of their life. >.>
On the top right is one of the 6 belts that hold the arm bands together. It's made of black dance fabric (from a previous costume) sewn around a light-weight foam base (to keep it's structure). The belt buckle is also painted foam board.
Bottom left is one of the wrist bands. It's made of felt. Seriously. I didn't have the right material to sew the pattern directly into the glove. So I pulled some felt from my art box and had fun with the hot glue gun. There are clasps which hold the band in place and keep it from moving around.
To the right of the wrist band are the earrings. They are made of clay, thinned out to stay light weight.
Next to that are the wings on the glasses. This is when they were in their first drying phase prior to additional paint. They were originally going to be made of foam (which turned into the belts instead). I made these from poster board and they are holding up a lot better then the foam was.
At the end, bottom right, are pictures of the heart clock in pieces and 2 more of the moon trinkets that sit on the suit itself. The moon pieces are foam board. The finished ones are at the bottom of the picture. The top 2 pieces were references. The clock is a combo of foam board, poster board, fake crystals, and hot glue. When in doubt, hot glue!
