My Nidalee ~Leopard Skin~ costume (reference was the CHINESE artwork here ;D)
A very unusual choice for me.
But it was a lot of fun to cosplay something different than normally. After cosplaying nearly 10 years only cute, little girls and elegant ladies, I was totally feeling like trying something new. So I decided to go for a strong, proud and wild woman this time.
About the costume:
It looks like the easiest costume ever, but it was not XD. First of all it was hard to find leo-print fabric that did not look super cheap and that was still in my budget. Behind all leopard fur parts there is dark brown suede behind it to imitate the skin of the animal. The teeth are made out of modeling clay and painted with drybrushing so they look dirty and used. There is a lot of wire in that 'sleeves' so they stand like that XD haha~. The spear top is made out of Worbla.
The bodypaint was a crazy experiance! First I used "Sally Hansen Airbrush Legs" when I wore it in Turkey on a con but that product was horrible. My photographer gave me kryolan make up which was waaays better to put on. Still it takes ~ 3h to get into the costume with all the bodypaint and the make up XD~.
I'm very confident with the results of the photo shooting <3! I think this type will not become my main cosplay type now, but I guess here and there some "not cute but wild and cool"-woman could be in my costume list :3.
