Super Heroes and Super Villains: Barbarella Leather Cuff

Recently, I had an interesting request for a custom designed cuff from the 1960's sci-fi film Barbarella starring Jane Fonda. It was the finishing touch to a client's costume while attending Dragon Con in Atlanta.

I watched the movie for the first time to get a better idea of the cuff. It reminded me of a female Austin Powers movie, high on the cheese and camp factor!

I made the cuff from silver leather to mimic the metal material, rhinestones for the bolts and a small plastic ball to represent the sensor. The ball lights up when touched and flashes bright red. (Both the wire and ball section are entirely removable. How cool is that?)
