This homemade costume for women entered our 2015 Halloween Costume Contest.

A word from Ruth, the 'Female Lich King' costume creator:

Hi guys! I have been crafting for right around a year and do everything from scratch! I did not have any clue I would even be able to pull something like this off but I worked really hard and made a lot of mistakes and am now able to teach others how to do the same! I work with a variety of materials from foam to thermoplastics but usually try to supplement with household materials like aluminum foil, pvc pipe, coat hanger wire..things we can get for cheap as well! My Lich King costume was based on the collector's model released from Blizzard and I gave it lots of love! This costume is what has allowed me to travel and teach over the last few months and I hope to continue to share my tips and tricks with many others who want to get involved in costuming or just want to have the best family costume on the block for halloween! I have included a pic at the end of my work in progress shoulder so you can see just how simple all the underneath work is! 3d layers really help your details pop! I have tons of progress pics on my facebook and I always try to explain things as thoroughly as possible so anyone can make what I do! Thanks for checking my stuff out and I hope you guys have a happy halloween! This will be my first time wearing this to a local event so I'm excited to see how my friends and family react!

I can't believe no one's commented. Then again, I got here from Pinterest by clicking through shawl patterns to crochet so perhaps it's an odd leap folks need to take to get here. I'm glad I went down that rabbit hole so I could lavish praise on your creativity and ability. :)

You nailed it with the detail and I'm not even a cosplay fan (though I Am a Halloween nut and many moons ago led our Rogues in WoW :D); yet I'm in awe. My favorite part is the sizing of everything, especially the sword. You captured the WoW essence of super sizing weapons and armor. It's an in-your-face detail, but I don't notice it used much in the costumes I've seen.

I hope you found much success after all these years.
