I wanted to be Xena for Halloween because I had rediscovered the show on Netflix. I sat and watched every episode for weeks. I thought it would be fun to make my own Xena Warrior princess Halloween costume after looking forever for a store bought one. I found brown vinyl on the clearance rack at the local fabric store and I saw it as a sign. I bought it all just in case.
I had planned on making the corset but I am not that sewing savvy. I made the skirt and added the metal grommets. After pain staking trying and wasting vinyl I decided to use a tube top and add the embellishments myself. I used the vinyl to make the arm cuffs and the armor look to the top of the tub top. I made the famous Xena weapon out of cardboard and wrapped it in aluminum foil and used gold paint to embellish.
