Cosplayer Bernadette Bentley has played various creative versions of Xena for years. Her latest is one of her best: Xena as a warrior princess ready for the ball. The dress is hard to wear, so don't expect her to jump and flip like Lucy Lawless does:
First time I wore this I had 1 plastic hoop skirt and 2 giant crinolines to hold the weight of the skirt(it’s reeeeeally heavy!) and still have the princess poof ... the updated version has a much stronger and larger hoop skirt with only 1 crinoline that had to have 1 layer cut out and now it actually doesn’t touch the ground which makes it easy not to trip on 😂😂. It’s much easier to maneuver but still really heavy— but dang do the chains look amazing! .
