I love Resident Evil so much and this is my favorite character pairing - Leon Kennedy and Ada Wong!

I made both costumes, and it's Brian as Leon, and me as Ada. The photos were taken at Anime Weekend Atlanta by Ljinto, and it was not a planned shoot at all. We just wandered around in the parking garage! The lighting for this shot came from the stair lamp!

Thank you Ljinto for the wonderful photos!

This was such a lucky incident! During the Resident Evil shoot with Ljinto at Anime Weekend Atlanta, two fully made up zombies happened to walk past and we stopped them and asked for a few minutes of their time. They were a part of a Netherworld promotion at the event.

Thank you Ljinto for the wonderful photos!

Last two Deviations of RE4 for a bit, I swear!
There were too many great photos from the Ljinto shoot to not share. Also laughing at myself making up all these imaginary scene titles lol.

This is my favorite image from our Resident Evil 4 shoot with Ljinto at Anime Weekend Atlanta.

I am such a geek for Leon/Ada lol.... I think it's really cool that in this intimate close-up shot you can't tell who is behind the bars and needs rescuing, but you just know either of them would do everything in their power to save the other.

I love Resident Evil and 4 was my favorite. I love the mystery behind the Ada Wong character and her unusual relationship with Leon S. Kennedy. For a convention in Mexico last November I decided to make this costume to go along with Brian's Leon [link] because RE is such a hit there and I knew we'd be able to geek out with everyone. XD

As for the construction - I pulled this costume together in couple of days and am not entirely happy with it. I used a matte satin for the dress, which is partially lined (to the hips) and top-stitched. The designs were hand painted on and the outlines are embroidered, and the dress laces up with eyelets in the back. I couldn't find red eyelets and didn't want to stick with the chrome ones, so I hand bound all the eyelets in burgundy thread. The gun is a modified airsoft handgun with laser, and t he holster should be temporary until I either decide to re-make the dress or just learn to deal with it. I found the shoes after trying on a million pumps that were all too big, and added the criss-cross straps. The wig was ordered off eBay and then cut by me and I made the scarf out of black chiffon.

Construction notes:
Since I became a fan of the game Dead or Alive and Lei Fang, I have wanted to make one of her regular Chinese dresses. When it came to deciding which color dress to choose, well, I have not seen the blue dress cosplayed personally, and thought that blue and gold would be a wonderful color combination.
Plus, I can not believe I had all the materials needed for this costume! All I had to get were the gold closures and bias tape for the trim.

I made the dress using a rich blue brocade and pale yellow bridal satin for the lining.
I created two Phoenix designs for this costume and they are painstakingly appliquéd on the front and back. With gold thread I satin stitched the outlines and all the feathers over the period of two days.
I also added hundreds of iridescent and gold sequins as well as rhinestones for glamor and depth.
The dress is fully lined and boned for structure, and was tailored to fit me like a glove. The high cut slits made me a little nervous at first but they really are necessary for those crouching poses lol.
The arm cuffs snap on and I already styled a Lei Fang wig for another version of her. I plan on sharing the wig between the costumes so the hair ties will remain gold to match!

Omi Gibson as Julia and me as Faye Valentine from Cowboy Bebop while we were cosplaying at the Toshimaen park on Saturday. I love this shot because the lighting is so nice and we look so in character!

First of all, I`ll just say that anyone looking for boobilicious Faye will not find her here. When I changed into the costume at the Toshimaen park and the adorable cross-playing changing room girl saw me, she immediately stopped me and let me know that I was wearing too little clothing. Especially the *breasts* had to go away lol. Naturally I had to come to Japan and cosplay in something too scandalous for the public *facepalm*. Thank Goodness they were able to compromise with me and let me walk around and take photos still. I just had to cover up with the red shirt and my long overcoat and flip my collar up so there was no more cleavage.

For an American con, I will re-style the costume to have more accurate T & A. lol

These images were taken by Brian Boling, however we had 5 other photographers shooting photos at the same time. Trying to pose for 5 cameras and not being able to communicate at all due to the language barrier was fun lol. Omi is such a fantastic and natural model that I just tried to play off of her poses and she did the same thing with me. The worst was not knowing which camera to look at lol, but we still managed to pull off some great shots I think.

What really blew my mind about Japanese cosplay is that most of the cosplayers were there to do private photoshoots of each other and many had tripods and used the self-timer to do photos. How they can get the angles right is beyond me. The non-cosplay folk are not fazed in the least by us and no one really took photos of another group. You just stuck with your own little crowd. That being said, I totally gawked at all these beautiful costumes and cosplayers all day. They were all gorgeous and perfectly made up!!!

Disclaimer: This is the only costume in my costuming gallery that I DID NOT make.

I was asked by Jamin of LeiasMetalBikini.com [link] to join the annual Slave Leia gathering at San Diego Comic Con because they needed a first time metal bikini wearer to talk about the experience for the Canadian TV Show "Ed The Sock". I was honored that Jamin approached me for that Feature! He loaned a beautiful costume to me for one day and I had a good time doing the gathering as well as posing for photos with Jabba The Hut! As a long-time Star Wars fan I wanted to make sure I was in good enough shape to pull off the bikini, and I also made Leia's gold earrings to complete the outfit.

You can see me in this footage G4 took at Comic Con! [link]

I also got filmed by the Tonight Show and was the only Slave Leia that year to make it into the actual Comic Con coverage. Random lol.

*PS - sorry for the snap shots. There were so many people around the Gentle Giant booth that we couldn't possibly get good photos.
