I was recently painted up by Master Body Painter Nick Wolfe [link] We've been friends for years but never had the chance to collaborate before now. Nick suggested something Asian inspired and I blurted out "Yakuza tattoo!" and the idea for this theme was born!

Nick did the painting in 4 and a half hours, using Diamond FX paint. He looked up the kanjis for "Dragon Queen" and painted them as well.
For those who don't take the time to read my Profile info, yes I am the model in these images.
I did the face makeup and hair, inspired by traditional Japanese Geisha, and modernized. I also bought traditional Japanese hair pins, and the over kimono was made by me, originally for my XXXHolic cosplay. I love being able to re-use costume parts haha. The full gallery for this shoot is here on my website: [link]

Close up of the dragon, painted by Nick Wolfe. The kanji in the golden sphere is "dragon" of course.

It's been a while since I posted the Yakuza Bodypaint images - tonight I remembered that I had these indoor shots after seeing the artwork that Pin Up artist Nicole Brune is working on based on this look of mine.

These were the first shot we took after completing the bodypaint. The quality of these indoor photos are low due to not having a proper studio set up, hence we went outside (hiding me nekkidness as much as possible from the public eeep!) for the really nice location photos (see below).

But you can see the paint job and colors really well in these pics!

About the project: In October 2009 I was painted up by Master Body Painter Nick Wolfe! We've been friends for years but never had the chance to collaborate before this bodypaint. Nick suggested something Asian inspired and I blurted out "Yakuza tattoo!" and the idea for this theme was born!

Nick did the painting in 4 and a half hours, using Diamond FX paint. He looked up the kanjis for "Dragon Queen" and painted them as well.

FUNFACT! Believe it or not this is actually the same model for my White rabbit photoshoot!!

Model: Ashley
Makeup&Hair: Myself
Course: Prosthetics
Application time: 3 hours give or take


Gelatin ear tips and nose piece were made for this. There was a slight bit of photoshop done on some rough blending edges but not a whole lot.

Also if it's not already obvious the head armour was inspired by Fran's from FFXIII and made using craft foam and a vacuummed formed piece of plastic for the base piece.


...She looks rather Zeldaish actually lol.

Lady's Riding Habit circa 1810

This young lady is dressed for riding in a worsted habit of military cut and ornamentation. Her hat combines elements of a military shako with that of a gentleman's beaver hat, and is adorned with a gauze scarf of extravagant length.

This is part of my Regency Fashions colouring book, which you can find here: [link]

See her in colour here: [link]

The keyblade, Oblivion, is pretty much finished. There are only a few other details needed. I still need to attach the keychain and set the paint with many layers of clear acrylic. This will take a few days since I must allow for dry time.

The picture is a little awkward. I used interference paint to line the edge of the blade and also the trim around the main jem piece. Since it refracs light, the camera pics it up too much so the effect is a lot more suttle then the photo portrays.

Anyhoo. I am really excited about this. I will be going to AKON, June 3 in Dallas, TX (US) in a couple of weeks. Though I think this will be the last prop I make. It took too much planning and time to make. It cut into other projects like writing. (SIGH) but I have to say that is was fun and I am very pleased with the results.

Thank you everyone for your comments. They were really nice and supportive.
