Finalised Initial Design

I'm sure they will be altered as I go along with the making process. But these are the designs as I start. I will make the helmet, pauldron, and gauntlet out of plastazote, moulded and painted to look like armour.
The chain-mail around the chest and neck will be either crochet, knitting, or lace. I have yet to decide which.
The skirt will be of quilted silk in two parts (wings), given shape with a bustle or bum pad. The colours will be all be in varying tones of bronzey/gold (the mythical colour in my head is somewhere between the two), with the armour being darkest, the skirt the lightest (almost white) and the corset somewhere in between.
