Kerrigan, Queen of Blades Costume

Kerrigan, Queen of Blades

Costume type:  Costumes for Women
Categories:Halloween Costumes, Video Game Costumes

This homemade costume for women entered our 2011 Halloween Costume Contest.

A word from Tegan, the 'Kerrigan, Queen of Blades' costume creator:

I am wearing a costume based on the character the Queen of Blades, from the video game Starcraft II. The costume is a modified wig, custom wings, body suit, gloves and boots. I made the suit, then cut and shaped craft foam for the gloves, boots, and suit. The foam was hot glued onto the fabric, and then sewn down onto the suit. All the foam and fabric was then painted with acrylic paint. The wings are made of coat hanger wire covered in craft foam, and are attached underneath the body suit by a harness that I made to hold the wings. The wig is a regular "dreads" wig. I covered each dread with craft foam and added more craft foam dreads and pieces on.

I love this!!!!! Great job, I am completely overwhelmed by this costume. My youngest minion is obsessed with Starcraft 2. Can you help me make this, or sell me the molded foam parts. He really wants to see me at Dragon Con in this character this year

Do you sell your costumes? Or costume instructions/patterns?

#4 comment by Tegan March 18, 2013

No, I do not sell the costumes I wear as I make them custom fit to myself. If you have questions on construction though, ask away. It may also be possible to make you custom pieces depending on what you are looking for. And I don't keep pattern pieces as they get destroyed in the construction process usually.

Hi dear! First of all grats for the work it looks amazing!

I was looking for ways to make the costume for my self and somehow ended up looking for latex. It's too expensive in my country though..
I was wondering how craft foam worked out for you, like for example were you able to wear the costume multiple times, did it last?
I'm worried because it's a very cheap material and I haven't had good experience with it (cracks, paint chips off etc)

And if possible could you also tell me what thickness of foam I should use?
Thanks in advance and sorry for all the questions xD

Craft foam has worked great for me so far, although this particular costume I've only worn once. However I wore it a lot to do the fitting and painting, so it probably has about 5-7 hours of actually being worn. I do have to repaint parts of it in part because the last pain job was rushed a bit, and some did flake off. I used standard 1/8" craft foam for most of it, some pieces are 1/4". I haven't had an issue with cracking, but the suit isn't very mobile, i.e. no sitting so it isn't likely to crack with the amount of movement I can do in it.

This is great! Congrats on all the work. What product did you use to seal the craft foam and how did you 'seal' the craft foam to each other for the wings?

#8 comment by Tegan September 9, 2014

Nothing was used to seal the foam on this costume, and I used hot glue for all the gluing.

This is great! How did you do the wings? And, how did you mount it to your body? I can't figure out!

The wings are attached to a corset with sockets for each wing. They are also attached at the shoulder with hooks.
