Queen Igraine

Queen Igraine Cosplay Theatrical 05 Velveteena Leigh
According to legend, Igraine was the mother of the legendary King Arthur. She is often depicted in her youth, before she bore Arthur, however I decided that I wanted to depict a wise and aged queen who has spent her life guiding her son toward becoming one of England’s most legendary kings. I chose to stay with rich primary colours which would have been available in medieval times, and embossed velvet and silk crepe fabrics that gave a feel of luxury and royalty. Through this project I was able to explore techniques like quilting, beading, fabric painting and basic millinery.
