Categories:Halloween Costumes, Movie and TV Show Costumes

This homemade costume for women entered our 2012 Halloween Costume Contest.

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

I am wearing the costume. Queen of the Damned is by far my favorite vampire movie! And i love Aaliyah! I chose this costume because its unique and u cant buy it anywhere!

The breast plates are made from model magic and were glued onto an old bra and painted. The necklace and jewelry chest piece are hand made from fishing line, beads, poster board that i painted, wire, and plastic jewels.

The headdress is made from two metal head bands, wire, posterboard, irridescent fabric, sparkle paint, and plastic jewels. I sewed black fabric on front and back of the skirt and made the belt from old fabric, posterboard that i painted, beads, fishing line, and plastic jewels.

Make up and hair were done by me as well. I also made my own vampire teeth so that they would fit exact. I took one of my hard mouth pieces and used nail acrylic inside and then clamped down. After the actylic hardened, i pulled them out and built up vampire teeth with the acrylic. After this hardened i sculpted them down with a dremel.

Hope u enjoy my costume! It was alot of hard work!

That is the most amazing thing I have ever seen. Holy crap that is awesome. I plan to do a take on the Anubis warriors from the second mummy movie only as the lion goddess sekhmet (also an Egyptian god) and dress very similar to the queen of the damned. Although I realize my costume idea is rather hard to explain I figure it is unique and will aid in scaring the small children in my neighborhood come Halloween. I thank you for the inspiration.

Do you have any tips on the breast plates??? I have been trying to make this costume for 3 years now, and I am determined this year to have it! I have thought about making a mold of my breast but I just don't know where to start! Any tips would be helpful!

#7 comment by Kaila July 28, 2013

This is the closest I've seen to it so far. Do you think you coulda me me one if I bought the materials?

#8 comment by Mallory Gray August 5, 2013

The breast plates i made out of model magic. To shape them the same as my breasts i took one of my bras and put saran wrap over the breast part and then formed the model magic over that. Once dry i shaped it and added deatil and paint. Hope this helps!

I just want to let everyone know that this is a very time consuming and expensive costume to make. It took about 3 months and cost about $300 just to make. Ive had several emails the past couple of months inquiring if i could make them this costume. Please only serious inquiries. This is not a costume you can buy at the halloween store so it not going to be priced like one. Not tryin to ruffle anyones feathers but alot of blood, sweat and tears goes into making something like this. Thanks guys!

#16 comment by Jeanette September 9, 2013

I would pay $300 for it! Where are you located?

#17 comment by Mallory Gray September 10, 2013

The costume does not cost $300.00. It COSTS me $300.00 in material alone to make it. Sorry for the confusion

#31 comment by Aussie Lisa May 31, 2014

This is absolutely amazing!!! The best one I've seen.. I was attempting this costume about 8 years ago, bought all the pendants, charms ect from Turkey and Pakistan.. What I've got is a near exact replica of it, the head piece I've got all the bits for cut out spikes ect, skirt all stuff for beading ect, the breast plates was the hardest and I cracked the sooks at it and had been in a box in pieces for the last 8-9 years lol. It is a very big job and I feel ur pain, and I know it's expensive I spent a total of 600$ on the pendants and beads ( as postage to Australia, and a lot are antique, or old) you have done an absolute amazing job! Im planning in having mine ready by next year for my 30th. U just inspired me to pull it out :) thanks again and I'll try the model magic for beast plates... Thanks and I hope u don't mind if I email u if I need some pointers! Good job f:)

#32 comment by Mallory Gray June 2, 2014
