Flesh Maiden aka Meat Dress by Riddle1 Flesh Maiden aka Meat Dress by Riddle1
As seen in episode 5-6 in SYFY's Heroes of Cosplay.

- Mounted wire mess to my body form to allow something for the clay to stick too.
-I sculpted it using WED Clay (waterbased clay)

- Studied the Alice reference but had to make design choices to allow for the transformation in the skit, so I couldn’t build up the shoulders and couldn’t have the piece go as far down my arm or bloody hands and feet.

- To achieve the effect of depth on the dress, I discussed with Chris how to deep you could dig into the clay and how much you could bulk it up, Alice has a pinches waist unfortunately my body cast was not done wearing a corset. I even left a 4 inch space in the back to help bring it in time and tried not to go too thick with the clay in areas to avoid bulking me out. When you first see you think squid arms, but it’s really not, the way its render in the game it comes across and pieces of meat, I looked at tenderloin meat because of how long it is and the casing that surrounds the muscle tissue. Also is where I came up with the nick name, meat dress. Throughout the process, Chris suggested that I put one light source on It, so I could see that it was catching shadows while I was working on it.

More on the Molding & Casting later!

I agree as well, but it would seem it's already done.  I guess it's a matter of time before pics get posted.
