|For my life I couldn’t find further pictures of Kristin Lehman from that movie other than I could screenshot from the Director’s cut (which are shown below) – well, they have to be enough for a rough costume analysis…In my opinion, which, of course, can be wrong from the very few pictures I got of this costume, it consists of 7 different clothing items…
First, a dark brown leather dress. This dress is a neck holder style and has a very short skirt. It’s made from rather thin leather, given the stretch and drape it is showing towards the neck.
Second there’s a probably 12-panel-corset without front closure, and I have no idea if it is laced up the back because I have no shot of the costume from the backside.
Third there’s some kind of turtle neck metal neck choker, very wide, covering her entire neck. I couldn’t help thinking of the African ‘swan neck’ necklaces when I saw this.
Fourth she’s wearing a thigh knife holder; made from black or brown material. If I were the costume designers, I would have made that from leather, and from the pictures I can’t figure out the exact color.
Fifth she’s wearing rather short gauntlets of brown leather. closing with silver snaps.
Sixth there are those overknee boots. I *think* there are buckles on them, but I have no pictorial evidence for this assumption.
And seventh, there seems to be a cloak with ragged hemline billowing behind her when she’s walking in that ‘Cryo sleep’ scene. However, I can’t exactly tell how it’s attached. It’s definitely not covering her shoulders, so I assume it’s attached somewhere at the back of her neckholder. From the way it is moving I would assume that it is made from the same thin leather as the neckholder dress. It’s probably just a rectangle or triangle of leather, with the bottom hem being ragged.
All in all, this is a rather nice and quite simple to make costume (as long as you know how to make a fitting twelve-panels-corset…), which of course has a rather low recognizing value as it was only to be seen in the Director’s cut.
