So here’s the thing about Maya. After doing all my research on her, I discovered that her overall look is very climbing-inspired – from the grip on her shoes, to the type of pants she’s wearing, to the wired stopper hanging from the locking carabiner on her belt, she’s built to climb. So everything in this was made with that in mind. She needed flexibility and durability…and that’s totally what I had, with the shoes, the glove, the bodysuit and pants materials – I could go climbing in this right now and do just fine. (Except for you know, the fact that I don’t know how to climb.)
- Boots! Her boots. I love them. They were probably the one true labor of love in all of this. Built around climbing boots, I made everything from scratch – including the soling. The 14 hours I spent making them almost seem worth it.
- I commissioned the amazing bodysuit through the wonderful Heather at Corsetiere, because I knew I wouldn’t have the time or patience to figure it out…and I hate sewing. She did an amazing job, and so quickly, too! It’s built over a Capezio leotard. Materials include wetlook spandex, standard lycra, sport mesh, and mini mesh.
