This set was shot in a library inside a condo complex - because of the semi-public nature of the location I thought the outfit might be a tad risque, but Kevin managed through his high quality work to make this theme look sexy but not overly naughty. I really love some of the images and am really glad we were able to use this location!

Kevin and I took over the laundry room in a condo building for half an hour and got these adorable shots. I designed and made the corset, as well as did my hair and makeup. Yay pink!

After shooting at the Grand Cosplay Ball last year with Pat Lyttle, he and I have been talking about doing a fashion shoot, so when I returned to London this time, we met up at the British Museum and took advantage of the stunning architecture within.

In a perfect world I would have wanted to shoot outdoors as I just adore the buildings, streets and alleys there. But it was absolutely freezing and we had to opt for an indoor location. I've visited the British Museum twice over 10 years ago and have always loved this museum. It is gigantic and houses some of the world's most precious artifacts.
We had to be semi-sneaky about our shoot, and it was a difficult one due to the insane amount of tourists and visitors present that day. All of these photos had to be snapped between long waits for the background to clear of people lol.

As usual, I did my hair/makeup and put together the outfit. Pat provided the lovely heels!

I love overhead shots like these, as long as you make sure the photographer is standing closer to your head as opposed to your feet. In this case, the contrast of black on white emphasizes the silhouette of the figure, and I love that the only popping color is my skin. The masked eyes also contrast the sensual yet relaxed pose. Even while Black Cat is chilling out, she is a mystery ^_-...

The last time I tried to put the latex suit on, the zipper top broke *saaaad* and I just got it fixed (dude, it only cost $8!), so to celebrate, have some more Felicia Hardy action.

Frameshot grabbed a few quick photos of me out on the floor of Dragoncon 2009. These two don't show anyone in the background, yay. I was surrounded pretty fast by a circle of people with cameras, especially after James asked a super toned Red Sonja to join me for photos lol.
Dragoncon is my favorite con, but sometimes the - sorry for the expression but there is no other way to put it - frenzy of fanboys just becomes too much, and I didn't have a chaperon with me eep. I excused myself before taking too many pics or doing any typical Black Cat poses.

Edit: Despite multiple comments clearly missing the point of this photoshoot, I will not spell it out till the other images are posted. But FYI, through out my modeling and costume making history you will see galleries of photos that tell a story, have a concept behind it. This is one of such....

... I've been waiting...

LOL Yes, I decided that my Teaser pic for the new costume I made will be cheesecake!

Black Cat from "Spiderman" comics - I know, every cosplay girl has this costume. But I've always liked Felicia Hardy's character and the simple yet stunning design for her. Plus, I got a thing for cat burglars. So why not?

This costume made from scratch by me. I debated for a while on what material to use (pvc, pleather, lycra...) and ended up settling for comfort, keeping my insane summer convention schedule in mind. So I went with wet look spandex and created the bodysuit as well as matching gloves and boot covers. I also made the collar with the chrome tag. I wanted everything to be the same material for an overall streamlined look. I cut up fur and sewed them to the bodysuit by hand, though I am not too happy with the look of it so that might change soon.
The wig came from a China seller on Ebay <3, and the mask is latex.

I wanted to originally make this for Florida Supercon next weekend, but my hands were hurting so badly from working non stop for weeks on products, that I needed a break. So I decided to take half a day to sew which is a very relaxing activity for me, and made Black Cat in time to wear for Fanime for photoshoots.
This photo was taken by Paul Tien - thank you!


(And yes I am aware that I'm super pushed up in this photo.)
