Step 2: Corset

Since I am not a master seamstress I decided to buy a corset instead of making one.  However, if you are up for the challenge, there are some fantastic corset making tutorials on Instructables.  Use these resources to make the top half of your costume.

<p>Very nice! Thanks for the tutorial!</p>
Congrats, Carleyy! Love this <em>outfit</em>! ;-)
Beautiful costume!! An awesome job! :-)
This is intense!! Very well done!! Hummm as for who one the fight, that is hard to say, I could see where a Space Viking might get an upper hand, but let's face it girls rule, so Xena takes it in for the win!
make love not war :)
Wow this really turned out great! I'll show it to my co worker as I've been telling her for years she would make a great Xena.
Everything looks great, except for that carcboard thing. You should have made it out of the same stuff as the armor.
very nice, im sure Xena showed more leg than that!. i like Gabryelle better. even gavbe my daughter that name
Nice work! <br> <br>Someone should do a Tron Version of the Xena Costume.
A good sharp utility knife will give cleaner edges when cutting the cardboard. I just had to cut out some weapons of the Xena Era last night and a razor sharp blade gave good clean crisp edges. Other than that it's a great job as is!
You certainly whooped that space viking, Great 'ible, love the costume.
This gal looks truly fearsome. Wouldn't want to be her enemy!
This is amazing! Great job, &amp; thanks for posting the tutorial!
Mind you don't fall down those stairs Carley! Pesky vikings.
That's no way to treat a space viking! <br> <br>(And where's the ible for the EL sword?)
