Caitlin's Costume Closet
I've been a big fan of the TV show Farscape for a couple of years now, but I hadn't ever tried recreating one of the costumes, since most of them were very complex and involved lots of leather. However, in the summer of 2003 I was doing a big clean-out of my theater group's costume shop, and I came across this pair of absolutely dreadful shiny reddish-orange lycra pants. And as I looked at the pants, it occurred to me that they were the exact color of the fourth-season character Sikozu's outfit.

Since there was no way in hell my theater group was ever going to use those pants again, I took them home with me. However, I didn't do anything with them until almost a year later, when I heard that the Save Farscape fan group wanted to get a group of costumed Farscape characters together at San Diego Comic-Con to promote the upcoming Farscape miniseries. That proved to be just the kick in the pants (ha!) I needed to really start working on the costume.

Of all the costumes I've made, this is probably the most attention-getting, due to its eye-hurting color (one of my friends once told me, "It's too early in the morning for that color!") and the amount of skin it shows. Certainly I've been photographed more times in this costume than in any other!
