Melisandre the Red Woman by etaru Melisandre the Red Woman by etaru
Over pre-Halloween weekend I got to go out into the mountains to do a new photoset with K because I didn't get enough photos of this costume at Dragoncon. Plus, as a general rule no one is happy with a costume 100% the first time they wear it.
I wanted dark, moody photos with an environment resembling Dragonstone or the forests beyond the Wall, so naturally it was cold and windy but we toughed it out like champs!

I based her costume off of book descriptions because I found her series costumes horrendous.
The entire costume was patterned by me and made in about three days, so while I like it despite being a bit of a rush job, I plan on redoing the skirt panels. The bodice was done out of varying interfaced panels of dupioni silk and velvet, with the sleeves, cloak and cowl out of taffeta and lined with organza. The necklace was was made by me out of numerous red crystals, I wish it photographed better to show detail.
The wig is a Matilda lace front from Arda Wigs because I'm obsessed with how lovely their lace fronts are! I chose to go with a darker crimson look for the makeup to give the impression of a mature, but powerfully seductive woman.
