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)

Many thanks and great work.

As this may have been a while ago, are you able to sell this costume or make it again for a cost?

This is crazy I'm just finding out that my name is so big in movies I never seen this movie until now and my real name is Ah'Kasha in real life , how I found out about this on this movie I was ordering pizza and the person on the phone asked me my name, she then told me my name was from this movie called queen of the dammed I didnt believe her until she saw me on a delivery and saw my teeth and asked me for my name, I then had to see what she was talking about on this movie, and I was greatly pleased with my real name being sooo famous. And my look of style as well that I dress like on the every day here in Germany. Thank you so much and maybe too I would like to just get the crowd.
