A year ago Aoki and I created custom costume for Mia Malkova based on Zach Fischer Blood Elf design. I loved the outfit and also I’ve always wanted to make some of Zach’s designs, so I gladly took this project. It was quite challenging since I’ve never did a full built without actual fitting at all. So, I made a custom mannequinn out of ducktape accodring to Mia’s measurements. I filled it with sintepon.
Then I made a mockup of the body using some stretch fabric to make an exact pattern before using thicker fabric. Here is the full process of creation of the bodysuit.
All gold ornaments I made out of faux leather, just like I did in my Whitemane costume. I also added lots of shadings on and around gold details with an airbrush.

Shoes and stockings details.
And for the pauldrons I used 5mm EVA foam.
To make the daggers we didn’t use 3d printer because we don’t have it, haha. Aoki made a basic model out of PVC, it took some time to sand and prime it before the model became smooth and neat.
Then he created a mold and casted one pair of daggers.
I painted daggers using Montana paint and airbrush and we incert the LED in them.
And here is the result, I love how it looks on Mia so much.
I update this article when I get any new photos from Mia. We really enjoyed making this costume and I hope you found this small article inspiring and helpful.
