Mythological Phoenix Costume by Natalie526 Mythological Phoenix Costume by Natalie526
(Character Based)
Reference: [link]
Yeah I know.. the reference is tiny. Since I wanted to make a more human based interpretation with this, I felt that I reference image wasn't exactly 100% necessary.

I was refered to this contest by :icondedredhed:

This is based off of the mythological bird of fire/rebirth, Phoenix. I made this costume basically out of 2 bought patterns(corset and base skirt), I altered them as shown with hand sewn bead designs, ruffles, feathers(all feathers on the skirt were hand dyed), and sequins. The corset is fully boned with a busk, the beaded design took about 5 hours to complete. I made the wings from plastic canvas, clear nylon straps, and lots of feathers. The wig was cut, dyed, styled, detailed with strands of beads, and finished off with a feathery headdress(also handmade). The feathery bodice was constructed out of plastic canvas covered with feathers, and hand stung beads. I made feather tails to attach to my wrists, wig, and wings to complete the costume. The only thing that I did not make for this costume were the shoes.
