Ame-Comi Wonder Woman costume made by me for Dragoncon 2010. I had some help with handling power tools in making the sword, the rest of the costume including armor was made by me. I used the figure as reference, which really came in handy when sizing pieces and figuring out details.

This shoot was done at New York Comic Con 2010 with Judith Stephens [link] I'm glad I remembered to pose with the lasso this time!

Photo by Anna Fisher [link] - thank you so much for this lovely Portrait of my Ame-Comi Wonder Woman costume. You can see the details better in this shot.
I made this costume for Dragoncon 2010, based on this statue: [link]

It was fun working with both textiles and armor on this project! This is also my first DC Comics character costume. :D

I made this costume alongside 4 other costumes within 4 weeks and estimate that I spent about 70 - 80 hours on it. I made everything from scratch - armor, breast plate corset, loin cloth etc. The wig is actually two wigs sewn together plus extensions for the ponytail. Thank you to Brian Boling and Jeremy Keast for their assistance with handling scary power tools to make the wooden sword.

I've wanted to cosplay one of the Ame-Comi figures ever since they came out and am so happy this got done in time or Dragoncon. It is my first DC Comics costume, too!

I'll definitely be wearing this again at New York Comic Con next month.

I really liked the intensity in this shot - as a character Wonder Woman would never go out without a fight and the Ame-Comi design arms her with sword and shield so I wanted to create a fighting stance pose. Undefeated!

First photos of a new costume I made for Ikkicon. I found this artwork piece by mangaka Carnelian and fell completely in love with the design!

It's Sheryl Nome from Macross Frontier, but as an adorable pirate girl! I happened to have very similar over the knee lace up boots, as well as 2 yards of deep purple Madonna velvet and black leather on hand, so I decided to push back my other cosplay plans to make this costume.

Construction notes: I started out by serging strips of magenta organza together, then hand ruffling the lengths and making a multi-layer ruffle skirt with them. I used the same organza to make the top and scalloped edged ruffle sleeves. I adorned the top and skirt with sequin trim because I thought it would be very Sheryl lol.
The captain's coat was fun and annoying to make. In hindsight I used three of the most difficult to work with fabrics on one garment, what was I thinking? The coat is velvet lined with two-tone taffeta, with all the black leather trim home made and carefully sewn on. I modified a pattern heavily and drafted parts of the coat on myself. It is reinforced with an extra layer of material inside, and boning.
The gold buttons have anchors on them which I thought was cute. I then made the ascot and garter belt, and covered a $5 Halloween felt pirate hat in black pleather left over from another costume. I also happened to have a nice beaded gold trim and purple and lavender feathers to embellish it with. The heart was kind of last minute put together and I may redo it in the near future. I did find some time to finally make Sheryl's microphone out of a mish mash of materials. Figuring out the braiding was interesting lol.

All in all, the costume came together in about 3 days of work and I am pretty happy with it! The colors are so cute together and I love my pirate hat. I am taking off the bows on the coat because they cover up all the arrow trim I spent so long making and stitching on. Definitely plan to wear it again soon, and do a location photoshoot!

Thank you to Brent LaVelle [link] for the studio shots!
