I had the amazing opportunity to shoot inside of a real Matrix-themed Dojo at Black Knight Martial Arts here in Atlanta! The Visual Insanity of Miracole Burns (fan page) had this neat idea for this location for her new Psylocke costume and I was all over it!
I was able to throw some ideas and lighting tricks around to get a neat beauty effect along with some lens flares (to come) to mimic purple super powers
Here is the first of a pretty large set of awesome pics from this weekend - Miracole could hold this pose for a good 2 seconds before falling over.. trust me.. looks a lot easier than it actually is!
This was my second shoot with the amazing BGZ Studios. My UA2 Psylocke was finished and it was important to me that we captured the awesomeness that is Miss Braddock. She is a bad-ass Ninja with telepathy after all.. This is the fruit of our combined effort.
*This is Darrell's favorite photo from this set*

Kevin and I went to shoot with the Cherry blossoms and ended up catching a beautiful pink sunset at the end of our shoot, we obviously had to make use of it!
The bodysuit is made from a custom pattern drafted by me. The costume is made from a pink four way stretch spandex and lined with a white spandex. The cut out sections on the waist are inset with a skin tone mesh. The sleeves and leg detail are made from a dark pink chiffon. The cuffs and rectangle appliqués are made from a dark pink suede. The appliqués are satin stitched in place. The wig is cut and styles by me.
