Cleopatra by azdaja Cleopatra by azdaja
oh look.. I look nothing like Cleo :D

This costume was done in 5 days for Istracon. There is 8 meters of golden lame and lineing. I used cardboard, glue, lots of old jewlery, beads and golden spray paint to make the crown. The costume is still not entirely finished as I will contiue to make it more like one Elizabet Taylor wore in 1963 Cleopatra movie.

After I faved this before, I came back since I have more time now to comment on your amazing work!
I'm a big fan of Egypt and also of Elizabeth Taylor in Cleopatra... this costumes just takes my breath away.
It amazes me how much detail you already put into it and how awesome it looks.. the source is very much visible (the headpiece looks really good already).
I can only hope to achieve such craftmanship one day.:)
