Slain Founder

The female Founder was fond of reminding Odo that"he was the only changeling to harm another", and for that crime, Odo's power was stripped away, forcing him to become a solid. From Deep Space Nine's third season episode "The Adversary", this piece is that of Odo's fatally wounded Founder nemesis masquerading as Ambassador Krajensky. The costume consists of a standard Founder outfit (bodysuit, shoes, and gown) with the addition of vast amounts of sculpted and textured latex applied over the upper two thirds. On screen, only the upper half was visible as the lower half was covered in CGI changeling goo. As an Odo fan, I find this piece to be a significant part of his history.
