My 4 year old is an avid Xena Warrior Princess fan. She wanted a Homemade Xena Warrior Princess Costume so I went to work making the costume using a 4 or 5 inch action figure as a model. I used some old dark brown nogahide that my Dad had left over from upholstering car seats, gold felt, gold sequins, and leather twine.
It took around 3 days to make and at least a dozen needles. I took an old pair of sandals and cut the tops off so that I could attach the nogahide pieces I had made for the boots. I had to use pliers to hold the needles as I attached the pieces to the sandal soles. I used black hook fasteners to attach the knee guards to the boots and the arm bands as well.
The body suit is laced with leather in the back for easy removal. I tried to be authentic and stick to the original design. Luckily, as no warrior can be without her famous chakram, I happened to have a mini version I had purchased from a previous Xena Convention. And as you can see, it fit perfectly.
