Why I chose to make this costume:

LA Photographer Dan Santoni and I wanted to collaborate on a photoshoot, and one of our chosen themes was a tribute to Cleopatra. I threw together this costume in a couple of days before heading to CA to shoot with Dan!

How I made this costume:

The most time spent on this outfit was hunting for the right jewelry and accessories such as shoes, the dagger and snake. I also made the the top, sash belt and sheer skirt, as well as the large beaded necklace by sewing various trims together.

 

Hair Stylist Michael Hall is responsible for the awesome wig and headpiece shown in the photos, and Dan came up with the great set. Also a big Thanks to Kabuki for lending me some great gold jewelry!

Thoughts on this costume:

As a huge fan of Ancient Egypt, you'd think this outfit is way too historically incorrect for me. Well, it IS rather inaccurate, but I still love it in all its golden glory! It was a great collaboration and photo turnout, too. If I wear this costume to an event I will make a headpiece for it, and maybe make some additions/changes.
