Nothing beats it. Callisto's classic outfit from Xena: Warrior Princess was a "home run" when it came to design. We were loaned Hudson Leick's iconic costume for study and patterning. Our replica is made of the same materials as the original, with only a few exceptions. You are guaranteed absolute authenticity when you purchase this item. The materials are pretty much as seen - leather, metal rivets, cast rubber snakes on the shoulders, and rubber mesh fabric. Trust me. You'll turn heads so fast you may cause whiplash wherever you go. Don't forget to look at the other pieces of the ensemble: Callisto Skirt, Callisto Gauntlets, Callisto Kneepads, Callisto Boots, and Callisto Scabbard!!!
