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!

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! He also had this amazing vintage Victorian bodice which we used as a jacket. It is from the 1880's and made of silk. The boning is still whale bone!

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!

I somehow always end up cosplaying singing idols ^^; Looked through my gallery and saw that I hadn't uploaded Lenne yet. She is such a sweetie. I feel perdy when I'm in this costume. It helps that it is so awesomely comfortable and doesn't even require a wig!

No I don't have the mic, sorry. This whole costume was made in about 6 hours on a whim for a con where I was a Guest and they wanted me to wear a FF costume. I didn't feel like breaking out my more elaborate (read: uncomfortable) ones since I was in the middle of a 6 week in a row convention tour. Exhausted doesn't even begin to cover how I felt at that time. But planning and making new costumes tend to make me happy and I pulled an all nighter to make Lenne.

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.

This costume is based on the "Witchblade" Series 2 Action Figure "Armor Sara Pezzini", sculpted by Clayburn Moore.

I've had both the red dress and black dress figures for years now but never thought to cosplay Witchblade until my friend Meagan VanBurkleo told me about the Witchblade through the Ages group she was putting together for San Diego Comic Con '09.
I had been swamped all year with work, up until the weekend before - Otakon - and didn't think I could get anything done for the group. But when Meagan told me I could borrow her boots/wig/gloves from her costumes, and I realized that I had 90% of all materials needed on hand, I decided to go for it.
So on Tuesday night of Comic Con week I started making the Witchblade glove and face pieces, with what I had laying around like gems, glue, paint, foam.... I stayed up till 7am, took a 3 hour nap, then ran out to buy the one thing I needed and kept working on the glove till dinner time when I had to start packing for my flight out to the con the next morning! I was so lucky to find an old red PVC dress I've had for years, altered the hell out of it by hemming it shorter and using the excess to make shoulder straps and the collar piece, and changing the cut of the dress.

At SDCC on Saturday I met up with the girls, and all 7 of us, posed for photos at the Top Cow booth for an hour. It was so much fun to have the different Bearers together in one place, and everyone at Top Cow were so nice and generous. We all got signed books by Marc Silvestri.

I will post group photos when we get them back, for now these are some quick shots Brian Boling snapped Saturday morning.
