Wendigo by Nymla Wendigo by Nymla

My halloween outfit for this year! I mean, one of them xD
I decided I wanted to be a native american sort of chick. And of course I can't help myself and turn it into something messy :P So I ended up being some sort of native american warrior cannibal crazy person.
It was a lot of fun to be this character and I really want to do this again, but have myself a liiittle bit more time to make the makeup and hair better ^^ I had sooo little time for the makeup etc :/

Pics to the left are from the halloween party I went to last weekend. Ignore that thing on my arm xD
I made myself a dress from rough bits of leather/hides/skins, handsewn it and lined parts of it with linen fabric. Added some feather stuffs on one shoulder.
I also made the necklace out of beads I found on second hand necklaces.
Made an axe out of a branch, a piece of styrofoam I had lying around and paint, strings, feathers, beads, fur.
Also made a headpiece out of sculpey and feathers.

I'm entering this to the #CRArtisanCrafts Trick or Treat Contest

Where did you get the inspiration for this design?

Hmm I came up with the idea that I wanted to make some kind of native american inspired character. I looked at the cool warriors seen in for example "the new world" movie from 2005. And I just came up with the design myself I guess, giving it a dark twist as usual ;P
Any reason you ask? :)

I moreover meant the more specific cultures you got the design from. Wendigos are from the myths of the Algonquins, but some bits on the outfit look more like there from the plains.

Oh I see. Yes I didn't really go into it too deep since I had to make this pretty fast and didn't even have time to make all that I wanted. :P I don't know a whole lot about the wendigo myth, I should read more about it! ^^
