This homemade costume for women entered our 2014 Halloween Costume Contest.

A word from Shawna, the 'Akasha Queen of the Damned' costume creator:

I am wearing AKASHA - Queen of the Damned .
This was REALLY REALLY hard work (mostly on the crown and necklace). I molded the bra cups out of crayola clay (found at Michael's Craft Store) and shaped it as closely to the real thing as I could (wore it twice and ended up breaking a piece off the tip :-( ) Then I hand painted purple and gold onto the cups. I attached them to my skin using SPIRIT GUM (YES they stayed on ALLLL night , even when I got hot).
The BRACELETS- I bought the large bracelets off of ebay and painted them and added rhinestones on top.
The NECKLACE- I bought alot of little weird pieces to the necklace from a trim store that had rhinestones, beads, etc. I used a hot glue gun and wire to connect everything.
The CROWN- Oh boy, this was the difficult part, I bought sheets of metal, cut them and bent them down the middle and constructed the crown out of that and wires and cold shaped pieces ,I painted them all gold & attached the pieces w/ a glue gun and molded the middle piece hanging from the crown out of clay and decorated it.
I made the rest of the costume out of sheer fabric, sequin fabric and more.
I got realistic vamp teeth from vampfangs.com.
Decided not to do contacts because my eyes just do NOT like them.

I'd say I spent about $150 on all the supplies (including shoes)

Love the outfit, would you be willing to sell it (if you still have it) or parts like the crown?

Many thanks and great work.
