This is the Red Battle Dress that Queen Susan wears in the movie The Chronicles of Narnia: Prince Caspian. The red velvet outer skirt is split in the front and back to reveal the red satin underskirt. I made all of the chain maile from 6+ pounds of individual aluminum rings. I made the leather corset using my own pattern. I made the bow from PVC that I heated with a heat gun and then bent on a frame – the “ivory” ends are clay.
The arrows are painted dowel rods, and the feathers are with plastic fletching that I cut into the correct shape and painted. They have an accent of gold cording. The quiver is PVC that my husband heated and stretched to make a larger top, then carved with a Dremmel. The inside is also carved. The van brace is vinyl with a sheet of carved foam to simulate the carved ivory. The shoes are the only items that are not handmade.
This Homemade Queen Susan Costume 8 from The Chronicles of Narnia: Prince Caspian was a hit at Halloween.

Love it all but I’m really interested in how you made the Quiver. You said your Husband heated it and stretched it. But what did he use to stretch it and did he also use a heat gun?
thats sooo cool
Really cool! Could you please explain a bit more how you did the chain mail? I have been wanting to make a Narnian costume but can’t seem to find anything about chain mail.
Could you please email me the patterns for the dress and leather breastplate? Sewinggirl2@yahoo.com
I love that costume. Susan is my favorite from the Chronicles of Narnia and those are my favorite movies. Also,I love how you included the bow and arrows,and quiver and not just the dress and costume itself. That is the best have ever seen!
Is it possible that I can buy the full costume? Or at least the bow and arrows with the quiver. How mush would it be for the full costume and just that group separately?
Thanks and Great work!
I would like to make one of these costumes for my daughter’s band performance. Can I by any chance have a pattern for the dress? I cannot piece it together. Please!
