Special thanks to Carlo Pagulayan :iconguisadong-gulay:, one of Marvel's commissioned artists in the country. We based the costume design on his artwork.

We rarely do a second pose / layout for a cosplay shoot, but since Nadine was such a deadringer for the character, we thought of pushing it just a bit more.

As much as we wanted to do the Jim Lee rendition, the boots and the inner suit is just a bit too fantastic already. We settled for the Ultimates costume design for Gambit.

Model: Rhian Ramos Howell (GMA Artist Center)

Special thanks to Harvey Tolibao and Carlo Pagulayan for helping us with the art direction, and just providing a ton of laughs.

Back in 2008, we also had Rhian cosplay as Rogue for my Pop Nostalgia exhibit. Somehow, I felt that she just had to reprise her role again. And we weren't mistaken.



Edit (02.06.11): Marvel.com featured this image in their website! Just having the Marvel watermark gave me goosebumps. [link]

Edit (10.15.11): Chris Claremont, one of the creators of the XMEN and the creator of Rogue, signs the print in NYCC 2011.

Big kudos to Solenn... she's not just an awesome model, but a great make-up artist too. She even came in all made up already. Plus she did her own prosthetics for the scars and blood. I was amazed. Total pro.

And of course, thanks to :iconguisadong-gulay: for literally illustrating the peg / pose for us during the shoot. We shall now call this, "The Carlo Pagulayan Action Shot"

We know Dinah Lance is the modern day Black Canary, but we thought of paying homage to her mom, since this shoot was inspired by the black leather jacket.

Special thanks to Ebong Joson for lending his super cool VMAX bike.

Interesting note about the model, we also used her a couple of months ago as Emma Frost:

Psylocke Ver. 1


Psylocke was one of the first cosplay shoots we ever did three years ago, and I thought she deserves a revisit, given the kind of experience and knowledge we have earned through the years. I hope we did her character justice this time around.

Edit (08.05.11): It's featured in Marvel.com!

The third time's a charm. We have attempted to do this shoot twice before with awful results. Got to pick up alot of learnings along the way though. We also didn't give up on the idea for the potential it had. I guess it had to take time, the maturity and to meet the right people to get the concept off the ground properly. It was Carlo's work that provided the last piece of the puzzle.

I had to learn some concepts of fashion design to get the costume right. Given the flaws of the construction from the previous versions, I made the design and functionality, taking into account Alodia's comments on how the previous version worked out for her.

Also curious to note, the claws were made out of real metal. Wish they came in adamantium though. We're coming up with two versions of X-23, one teen (which is this one) and one adult version (still be to shot).

Out of Carlo's spare time, he made this video from behind-the-scenes footage of the shoot: [link]
