Dejah Thoris - Zodanga Wedding Dress by FireLilyCosplay Dejah Thoris - Zodanga Wedding Dress by FireLilyCosplay
Costume made and modeled by me
Photo by PhotoNXS @ DragonCon 2014

After seeing Disney's "John Carter" movie, I was absolutely hooked on making this dress (designed by Mayes C. Rubeo, worn by Lynn Collins).  This was probably the most extensively draped/flat drafted costume I've made yet.  I was actually beading and rhinestoning at the convention because there was just so much to put onto the dress!  

I resin casted all the dress, bracelet, crown, and necklace filigree pieces and pieced them all together to match the dimensions of Dejah's costume pieces.  The crown is made of wire that I beaded and adorned with chains and rhinestoned pieces.  The body tattoos took around 5 hours to complete and is a combination of water-slide tattoos and hand drawn ink.

Making and wearing this was such a little dream come true!!  I had a wonderful time at DragonCon and had such a great reception in Atlanta :D

What I like about your art is that you take the time to find a background that is suitable for your costume which is the foreground.
This is a marvelous piece of artwork and detail in your costume. I notice the colors of the pillars bring out the tonal color of the costume. Genius.

Thank you so much! This is one of my fave photos just for that reason. It feels very Barsoomian with the red and orange highlights in the pillars :D

This photo is the best one yet of this costume. It's simply beautiful on you. I remember how pale you are, so there must have been some major self-tanning lotion beforehand because the bronze is just perfect!

Indeed! It's actually dye - I took a RIT dye bath since the dye stains the skin and won't come off without cleaning agents. It was much faster than airbrushed make up and didn't need retouching (the tattoos needed some next day touching up, though).
