Masters of the Universe Orco Homemade Costume
I wanted a costume that would be really cool and that I could hide under and just shake off if I was too hot. The Masters of the Universe Orco homemade costume was perfect!
I made it out of dress lining from a wizards pattern (worn back to front)in dark red lined in purple then appliqued a giant "O" on the front in sequin fabric.
I wore a black stocking over my head with eyes and a mouth hole cut out with cardboard eyes stuck over the holes to cover them and wore a fuzzy purple scarf to cover the mouth.
And finally a hat with black cord tied around it finished the outfit. I wore it over a hoop skirt which was pulled up high on my chest to give the appearance of floating like the character does in the cartoon. This was very effective and won the contest and I have lent it out several times since!
I think it cost me about £13 in materials to make.
My birthday party theme was 'Comic Book & Cartoon Characters' this year. I chose this theme mainly because I've always wanted to dress as Catra from the She-Ra cartoon series.
You may not remember Catra, but she took command as Force Captain for the Evil Horde on Etheria when Adora (aka She-Ra Princess of Power) discovered the truth about who she was and joined the Great Rebellion.
The costume I made consists of: red PVC thigh high boots, tanned fishnet stockings, XXL black hair piece extension, a red PVC covered cat-shaped mask with green cellophane eye covers, red PVC dress with red sequined horde symbol on front, red PVC armlets, violet & black satin cape, black, green & violet acrylic nails with red jewels and last but not least - bright green contact lenses & red lipstick!
