About this costume

Selection Process: This is the only game I've ever played in the franchise. I fell in love with the imagery and design, so naturally I took to Elika.

Construction: My mom was a wiz with patterning the top. I told her to think of a gown with the skirt ripped off. She then inserted a built-in bra to make my boobs look great! I finished the top off by distressing it and adding the gold embellishments. I made the pants myself using a pattern. The necklace was actually an old Halloween bat decoration that I cut, turned upside and painted. Although Elika is barefoot, I did wear matching sandals throughout the convention.

Final Thoughts: This costume was fairly simple, and easy to wear. My friends did a gender-bend group, and there were Ubisoft characters, so I joined as the only original female character!
