This homemade costume for women entered our 2018 Halloween Costume Contest.

A word from Erica, the 'Shadowhunter' costume creator:

I love the book series "The Mortal Instruments" by Cassandra Clare and the television series that was made to go along with it. Due to the show being cancelled after this season is over, I decided to pay homage to the series by dressing up as a Shadowhunter. Shadowhunters are characters with angelic powers that they use a "Stele" to burn runes onto their bodies. I pulled inspiration from Isabelle Lightwood, who is a Shadowhunter who tends to be more fashionable than the rest of the Shadowhunters in the field. The costume is simple enough. I already owned all the clothing, and just needed the tattoos, the bracelet, and the Stele. I got the tattoos and the bracelet on Amazon and ordered the Stele on Ebay. The bracelet in the book and show actually turns into a staff or whip at will. It's a simple costume that I hope other people will recreate in future years to keep the spirit of the books and show alive.
