Last pic from Megacon!

Here I'm with the man who played Snake Eyes in the Rise of Cobra movie, Ray Park!

He was incredibly nice, complimented my costume, played around with my Snake Eyes replica sword (and complimented it as well!), signed said sword and took a picture with me! He also said he liked my friend's Snake Eyes costume and told us a fan had given him a visor just like the one Mark was wearing (I had ordered it from ebay).

This was my favorite moment from the con. And that's my fangirling, omgitsraypark, bursting at the seams with excitement smile, lol. I kept it together, tho. I don't go all batshit on celebs...that's just weird.

Been wanting to do this for a while now and finally decided even though I haven't yet found glasses to use on the figure I am going to go ahead and get to work on knocking most of it out.

This is a work in progress board of my Bruce Timm inspired Baroness custom.

This is basically done other than adding some minor details to the body and finishing up the head which just needs paint at this point.

Need to find some small COBRA logo's to add to the Baroness but cant seem to locate what I'm looking for so I might have to fabricate it myself but for now I'll just leave well enough alone.

Basic JLU female torso (hawkgirl style) heavily modified to achieve the laid back positioning. Used epoxy putty for all fill in and shaping with some stryene strips to add some suit details.

Its obviously not and exact copy of the Timm design but more of an homage to the general look and pose of the piece of art by Bruce Timm.

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.

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.

I made this Dawn costume based on Joseph Michael Linsner's "Cry for Dawn" comic book series for Dragoncon 2009, and only had the chance to wear it a couple of times so far. Since I spent so much time creating this costumes, I thought it would be nice to wear it to Anime USA 2010 just to get another wear out of it. Of course most people didn't recognize me since Dawn is an American series and I was at an Anime con, but I had fun taking photos in it anyway!
LJinto has a unique style of composition and lighting and I really loved these two shots by him.

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.

Thank you Brian for grabbing some shots during the Atlanta Fight Club event, celebrating the new game Marvel vs Capcom 3. I was one of the five hired costumers for the night, we stood on podiums and posed as the characters, as well as took pictures with the fans.

After that night, my Felicia costume is retired, but only because I am making a new one! I'll probably only re-use the wigs (I have the blue and pink wigs) and the base shoes for which I made the furry bootcovers. Everything else will be brand new. She is one the most fun characters to cosplay and I definitely am not ready to hang it up for good yet. :)

A full gallery of the event coming soon on my website! [link]

Swirly Whirly (yellow pony) from My Little Pony - Sundae Best Collection from 1985.

Made in FOUR DAYS for the Sundae Best pony group at Dragon*Con. I used baby soft yellow fabric (which was both fuzzy and warm) and created a romper from scratch (no patterns used). I thought a romper would be a nice change from the normal dress design most ponies end up having, as well as reflect the '80s (the Sundae Best collection was released in 1985). The mane and tail are made from two wigs I bought off eBay and her cutie marks are made of a few pieces of felt that were painted, and have stitched detailing. The ears were bought from Yaya Han (yayahan.com). I wore purple contacts to match the purple eyes of Swirly Whirly and my shoes are from my Snow White costume. I also surprised our group with hand-stitched barrettes to match the ones that originally came with our ponies in the box!
