I was looking through my galleries for Halloween costume ideas and remembered that I made this PVC Kimono 5 years ago!
I was invited to perform at a goth industrial club in Atlanta on New Year's Eve and the theme was Asian for the night. I had a ton of black PVC vinyl and red brocade at home so I designed and made this Kimono. The underbust corset replacing a traditional Obi was also already around, so I altered it and added the tassles and strings.

This is a simple but cute outfit that I have used for multiple promotions and events. At least 4 different models have worn this at one point. I love kimono sleeves and their double function as giant pockets.

These are a pair of wings I finished this week, for a customer. I built them to his size and height (over 6 feet tall) and they turned out so big that I could not wear them myself. I also gave up trying to put them on a mannequin as it would just fall over in a slight wind. These had to me put on a live model, and thank you Brian for putting them on for the photos.

Pardon the ugly watermark right in the center, but people tend to take/steal/post my wing photos a lot.

I designed a newer shape this time, with more wing span and a very defined arch. Kind of like my smaller gold wings for Athena. They are very lightweight and can be taken apart and "folded" on top of each other for travel/shipping.

Every year I take a limited number of angel wing commissions. If you're interested, go to this page for more info:

Shoot date October 26th 2008

I made a Heavy Metal/Luis Royo inspired fantasy costume for a river shoot with Kevin Stewart and Brian Boling. We were channeling the Greek War Goddess Enyo.
In Atlanta in late October it was already freezing and I braved waist deep water this skin bearing outfit lol.

I really like this portrait Brian snapped at the end... maybe I look so pissed because I was frozen and ready to change XD?

The collar was made by Brian also, while I hand crafted the accessories like the hair pieces and gauntlets.

I'm trying to round out my DA with costumes I haven't uploaded yet...

I made this costume back in March 2006. It's based on Ayumi Hamasaki's music video "Ladies' Night" which I absolutely loved. You can read about how I made it and see more photos at my website here [link]

Thank you Brian for grabbing some shots during the Atlanta Fight Club event, celebrating the new game Marvel vs Capcom 3. I was one of the five hired costumers for the night, we stood on podiums and posed as the characters, as well as took pictures with the fans.

After that night, my Felicia costume is retired, but only because I am making a new one! I'll probably only re-use the wigs (I have the blue and pink wigs) and the base shoes for which I made the furry bootcovers. Everything else will be brand new. She is one the most fun characters to cosplay and I definitely am not ready to hang it up for good yet. :)

A full gallery of the event coming soon on my website! [link]

This is a new product I just finished for Katsucon 2010. Everyone seemed to like them and I hope you do as well!

You can buy the wings in my Etsy store here: [link]

Product Description:
These eye-catching Steampunk wings are designed by Yaya and lovingly crafted out of lightweight and flexible industrial foam. The expressive multi-layered wings are hand crafted and fully 3-dimensional, with layers of foam on both sides of each wing. Each pair of wings are hand painted in metallic shades and sealed for extra durability.
They are suited for guys and girls and are resistant to bumping into people, objects and walls, making them perfect for Cosplay, Conventions, Steampunk events, Parties and Clubbing.
The wings are attached to a sturdy wire frame covered in soft felt for comfort. Because they are so light, they can be worn like a backpack with elastic loops already attached. The wire frame allows for easy adjustments and positioning.

Preview from a photoshoot with Leonard [link] at SDCC!

The costume my latex version of Black Cat from Spiderman. For SDCC I added an underbust corset to the costume to help hold the zipper up and for extra stability in wearing the suit for a long time and during a photoshoot where I had to climb, sit, recline and do action poses. Latex in public always makes me nervous as it is rubber that can tear O_o;.

Thanks to my friends I got new great product photos of my elf ears this past weekend at Katsucon 2010. I thought I'd share some of them.

If you're interested in a pair of these ears, check out my etsy listing for them at: [link]

Product description:
These very unique long elf ears are made of high quality plastic that had been dyed the color of skin. There is no paint on the ears, and therefore no chipping or scratching. The plastic is also an excellent base for acrylic and spray paint should you wish to change the color of the ears.

They are mounted on a comfortable headband with wire embedded into the plastic, which allows them to be adjustable, so you can wear them pointing up, down, back and everywhere in between!

My plastic elf ears are meant to be worn underneath a wig, but you can also wear them like a normal headband over your hair and brush strands of hair to cover the gap between your ears and the elf ears. The best feature? No need for spirit gum or other adhesives! Unlike latex rubber prosthetic ears that can rot over time, our plastic elf ears are durable and will last for many years to come.

Please specify which skin tone you'd like in your payment note: Light (Fair Skintone), Medium (Regular Caucasian Skintone), or Tan (Darker Skintone).

Our customers have creatively utilized the large size elf ears for cosplays from games such as World of Warcraft, and animes such as Record of Lodoss Wars.

I designed these Butterfly wings last year but never got around to taking photos of them. Today I took advantage of the sun being out, and Brian took some photos of me in them. I have added these wings to my Cosplay Accessories store [link]

Product information:
These large intricate Butterfly wings are designed by Yaya and lovingly crafted out of lightweight and flexible industrial foam. They measure an impressive 31 inches across laid flat.
The expressive multi layered wings are hand crafted and fully 3-dimensional, with layers of foam on both sides of each wing.

The base color is airbrushed for more depth and vibrancy, with the overlay (on both sides!) being black for maximum contrast.

They are suited for guys and girls and are resistant to bumping into people, objects and walls, making them perfect for Fairy events, Cosplay, Conventions, Renaissance Fairs, Parties and Clubbing.

The wings are attached to a sturdy wire frame covered in soft felt for comfort. Because they are so light, they can be worn like a backpack with elastic loops already attached. The wire frame allows for easy adjustments and positioning.
