Wig 
from Arda Wigs

Aika was my costume for the finals of ECG Season 7. Her design may look simple, but I spent months working with new materials and techniques. Most of the materials are leathers from Le Prevo. The bodysuit is made from scuba jersey. All of the buckles, goggles & fastenings were sculpted and cast in plastic.

The wig is made from a Leia from Arda Wigs in Light Copper Red with Pumpkin wefts. There is wire and felt inside to keep the shape sturdy and gravity-defying! The goggles snap into place on the wig. It’s surprisingly comfortable to wear!

The boomerang prop is made from a layer of 5mm perspex which was cut and sanded by hand. The handle is made from 3 layers of 5mm Cosfoam, covered in worbla and glue. The handle and blade separate for easy transportation!
