Costume made by me:
Corset - PVC and Faux leather, coutil lining & steel boning, faux lace up front
Pants - PVC and Faux leather with spandex inseam
Cape - chiffon with coque (yes I said that) and ostrich feathers
Gloves - PVC and spandex
Collar - Faux leather and repurposed necklace pieces
Diamonds - 3 latex prosthetic pieces with Swarovski crystals
Wig - heavily cut and styled Matilda lace front from www.arda-wigs.com
Boots - altered boots I have had for years!


Emma Frost's diamond transformation form cosplay in progress:

I bought a 10 gross count (1440) of Swarovski crystals for another costume but never used it! I thought it would be awesome to make crystal prosthetics for Emma. I started off my drawing on my plaster headcast to figure out how many pieces I needed and what they should be shaped like. I wanted the diamond transformation to stretch down my neck and shoulder. Then I sprayed a mold release on the cast and painted thin latex on in multiple layers. After letting that dry, I individually glued over 1000 Swarovski crystals onto the pieces with E-6000. The bond was great, and made the prosthetic pieces stronger. The headcast ensured that each piece was formed perfectly to my face shape, neck line, shoulder line and clavicle. The prosthetics were glued on to me via ProsAid, and held on amazingly for 12 hours, even with me smiling, talking, eating and fidgeting. I specifically chose to make latex pieces instead of gluing stones over a mesh so that I could re-use the pieces over and over again and have full range of motion each time I wore this costume. I also don't have time at cons to glue 1000+ crystals to myself each time, but I do have time to glue a few pieces on then scatter more crystals around them for a blended look.

Absolutely gorgeous!  I've been wondering how PVC works in costumes, and how it looks (looks great!), but also how well it works for a seamstress.  You did a fantastic job as always!

I love the diamond prosthetic! I have a snake costume for which I usually glue on scales individually, but I should look into attaching them all onto pieces of mesh or latex.
Thanks for the inspiration!

love the craftsmanship and the details. but its not working for me. Emma Frost is usually portrayed/drawn showing more abs, more shoulders. She does play the sexy part to her favor usually in detriment to her enemies.
