Cortana is the playful witty and intelligent holographic A.I. Possessing a flash clone of Dr. Catherine Elizabeth Halsey, Cortana seems to share the doctor's appearance, memories, opinions and even thoughts. Working as Master Chiefs helper (and companion) Cortana's primary function is to infiltrate computer systems.
This costume was such a pain! It took forever to sew all the black parts to the body suit, the fabric wouldn't sit how I wanted it to and on top of that when I washed it all the liquid metal fabric changed colour! It originally shone a whole bunch of different colours (purples, blues and somewhat green) but for some reason after I washed it all of the multi-colour shine disappeared and then it was just silvery. I have to say that was just one of many disappointments with this costume. There's also the fact that it was a little too see through so I had to line it, which made it far less form fitting and far more body shape altering. I was also planning on stitching rows of metallic thread through the dark parts to look like the coding she has but I ended up running out of time (as usual **sigh**) and having to scrap the idea! On top of body suit issues my makeup turned out to be completely garbage! It kept drying out and flaking off! Other then that all though I do have to say I like these pictures Kevin took! I love my wig so much ♥ (thanks so much to Bernie for cutting it for me! You did an amazing job!!!) And even though I'm completely not happy with the costume itself I think it was a pretty good first attempt! I do plan on redoing the costume (using all the useful info I learned from past mistakes) and hopefully it'll be a million times better next time!
