I originally wore this costume for the DC Sakura Matsuri Fashion Show, but per the photographer's request I brought her out to AUSA 2011. Unbeknownst to me at the time, Haydee's one of his favourite characters so we ended up shooting for several hours which yielded a number of amazing shots.

Costume details:

Upon trying to think of something appropriately 'pretty' to cosplay, I had a sudden epiphany after hours of fruitless brainstorming and remembered how way back in early 2006 I had wanted to cosplay Haydee from Gankutsuou. Admittedly, I hadn't given the series much thought in years despite having loved it and went back and watched the opera house scene to catch all 2 seconds you actually see of this dress. All in all, this costume was a lot of fun to make and took me maybe the grand total of 4 hours not counting the three weeks spent procrastinating. And oh so tacky.

I wanted the dress to be very sheer and super shiny. Finding an iridescent organza proved to be more difficult than ever anticipated and after realizing that the only seller online who carried it was in China, I began hunting for an alternative locally which turned out to be an adventure in itself. 8 yards eventually went into this costume. The fabric was fairly easy to work with but wanted to disintegrate when I simply looked at it -- this was not conducive when trying to thread 18 gauge wire through channels. Also, I cannot ever iron this dress because it would probably melt faster than Nazis looking at the Lost Ark. The dress was partially made from a pattern, though most of it was simply draped on a dressform. Strands of pearls were sewn along the bodice. The gems are a mixture of acrylic & Swarovski -- $60 total -- and super glued on -- yes, Gem Tac takes forever to dry. I had initially wanted to use nothing but Swarovski but I was on a time crunch and it was cheaper/faster to buy acrylic gems instead. The jewelery is made from a glitter foamy that's been sealed on the back w/ Mod Podge. An assortment of rhinestones & pearls were glued on in various patterns. This was the best part of making this costume. Such tacky terrible bling. Elf ears were purchased and lightened w/ a pale pinkish white foundation and attached w/ spirit gum.

The wig is a Silver 40" long from Epic Cosplay with additional wefts that was twice dyed w/ an FW Ink + alcohol mixture. Unfortunately, the colour did not take as dark as I had hoped, but the end product worked well enough. I had never anticipated not being able to find a 40" long dark green wig w/o bangs but clearly they no longer exist. Wefts were glued around woven pipe cleaners and accented w/ crystal scrapbooking appliques & rhinestones.

DOUBLE LEIAS... ALL THE WAAAAY.... O_O It's so intense...

I was so excited to get this shoot with Sarah in her adorable Steampunk Slave Leia costume! She worked really hard to get this ready to shoot with us at DragonCon, and I think her interpretation of Slave Leia is just excellent! My favorite part is the exposed boning on her corset. Awesome work, lady! <3

Check out more photos of her Steampunk Slave Leia here:

Yaya Han :iconyayacosplay: is a textile artist of the highest ranking in my eyes. Herein is displayed the original art work upon which her costume is based, her description of the creation process, and, of course, the finished product as she models it.

Edit: Added bottom photo; 22 March 2012

Not enough can be said of such work. I find it simply amazing that she must operate without boundaries to produce costumes which are so minutely bounded. I am rather sure that the original artist who created such fashion gave no consideration to reality, that someone would actually attempt to make the costume "in the real world". They, too, must be properly astounded when Yaya Han pulls this sort of work off.

I had a photo shoot with Dim Horizon Studio at Dragon*Con 2010 with this costume. Matt was great at working with me to make sure I got shots that showed off all the different bits of this costume that might otherwise go unnoticed.

Did I ever post this costume here? CRAP I DON'T KNOW.

This is my original version of good ol' PeeZee. I designed it back in 2005 on a bunch of scrap paper and then my roommate :iconblackkrogoth: surprised me with this piece of art: www.oneblackrose.org/pandachim… I loved it so much that I made it into a costume!

Sadly, this thing is over three years old now and was falling apart when I put it on for these pictures. But I needed something to wear for Sakura Matsuri Press Day in Brooklyn that was "over the top", and since I ain't wearing Giselle in the city EVER AGAIN, I went with this.

Disregard the lack of fancy hair or pointy ears, it was a rough morning.

My new Sheryl Nome costume! I found the PERFECT fabric for it downtown in the fabric district - it even has the gradient on it like in the artwork! Unfortunately, it doesn't show up in too many photos because of the lighting... alas. At least you can kinda see it here.

Photo from [link] . Thanks! :D
