Together we designed a costume, but then after some consideration we decided to pass on that design and instead do a recreation of Kahlan Amnell's costume from Legend of the Seeker. But instead of the dress being green, it would be blue. Here is a still of the costume:
It was the perfect mix between feminine and butt kickin' heroine.
So here we are! I made this super quickly; it was completed in 6 days. She needed it on the 5th of July, and shipping takes forever. I just hope I did all the calculations right and it fits her...it's so hard to tell until you get someone in a fitting :/

These were the most problematic pieces of the costume. I could not find the correct size, shape, and design anywhere, so I improvised. These are scrapbook corners. Yup. I spray painted them silver, drilled four tiny holes in them, and attached them by hand right above the grommets. Took forever, but I think I got pretty close to the look of Kahlan's dress.
Don't mind the really creepy elongated neck.....
And the back!
Thanks for reading! If you are a LOTS fan, leave a comment! <3 I love meeting other Sword of Truth lovers.
As usual feel free to ask questions, or make suggestions on how I can improve :)
