Last photo I'll post of this costume for a while! It shows off the costume in it's entirety, and even has Roger in it to boot! This cust9om balloon Roger Rabbit was a surprise gift that awaited me at Dragoncon when I came downstairs in this cosplay for the first time. Isn't he cool?

Jessica Rabbit - Who framed Roger Rabbit
Costume made & modeled by me
photo by Brian Boling

Jessica Rabbit has always been one of the most mesmerizing cartoon characters to me - as a kid she made me watch the movie over and over again, and as a cosplayer, she was always a huge challenge for me to portrait. I've been collecting materials for her for almost 2 years, and wanted to make this costume to the best to my abilities.

The shape is not photoshopped, just clever cosplay engineering.
I drafted & made a custom corset to create the extreme shape and then made the dress to fit over it. I engineered 2 Victoria's Secret Miraculous bras into the corset, which is steel boned coutil. The extreme illusion is created by pulling in the waist, padding the top and wearing a booty bump hahaha.
The dress itself is made from a spandex sequin fabric, and 1000+ S20 Swarovski crystals are glued on the fabric for
extra bling, tedious time consuming handywork with help from Mary Cahela. I specifically chose pink instead of red for the dress because in the movie her famous singing scene features a pink dress. I also like the color combo: orange hair/pink dress/purple gloves more than the red dress which can sometimes come across as "lady of the night" in certain lighting. Pink makes the entire outfit look more cartoon-y!
Here is a reference image of Jessica in the pink dress.
Here is a youtube video of Jessica in the pink dress doing her famous stage performance from the movie.
Here is a work in progress collage of my Jessica Rabbit dress.

I adore my wig which is a Matilda from Arda Wigs! Styled with help from Ara Fernando!

I also went with the route of cartoon makeup, covering up my eyebrows and painting over them. It was a risky choice for makeup, and since Dragoncon I got my share of comments about going drag lol, but when I decided to portray such an iconic character as Jessica Rabbit, I didn't want to fall short of the makeup when everything else was so exaggerated.

I have never posted an iPhone photo on Deviantart before because of the lack of quality, but this shot actually turned out pretty well for an iPhone camera and I'm so excited about the costume, I just have to share!!! I color corrected the image a bit and added a watermark but it is not photoshopped otherwise.

So here you have a sneak peek of my newest cosplay: Jessica Rabbit - Who framed Roger Rabbit

No photoshop, although even with my final measurements of 41-23-39 it's still not Jessica Rabbit's accurate measurements. Hers are probably indeed humanly impossible. ^_^;;;
Also, I went with the hot pink (fushia) colored dress from the movie, deliberately, instead of red, because I've always viewed Jessica as orange hair, pink dress, purple gloves.
Here is a reference image of Jessica in the pink dress.
Here is a youtube video of Jessica in the pink dress doing her famous stage performance from the movie.
Here is a work in progress collage of my Jessica Rabbit dress.

There are Swarovski crystals on the dress & gloves, which were glued on with help from Mary Cahela!

The exaggerated bedroom eyes makeup involving covering up eyebrows with wax was created by me!

Debut: Dragoncon, Friday, 6pm :)

I recently did an awesome photoshoot with Benny Lee :iconbenny-lee: in a Chinese Restaurant. As you know, the backgrounds settings for the Street Fighter games can be super random, and Benny was ingenious enough to secure a space for us at a local restaurant before they opened for Dim Sum in the morning. Of course we stayed to nom after the shoot!
I know I've posted a ton of Chun Li photos but I just got all these amazing images back and I would love to share more with you!

CharacterL: Art Nouveau Chun Li cosplay (designed by :iconrazvan-sedekiah:),
Costume made and modeled by me
Photo by Benny Lee :iconbenny-lee:
Chun Li gallery is up on my website!!
Head over to my site to read the full construction notes on how I made this costume and check out my favorite photos of Chun Li.

Costume thoughts: I absolutely loved the design by :iconrazvan-sedekiah: and thought it was a great stylish translation of an Iconic character. I created the full costume, using luxurious fabrics such as dupioni silk and silk taffeta. All the trims and swirls are embroidered on, free hand. I had a lot of fun making the charms, hair buns and spike wristlets. I read the spikes in the design artwork as ivory or marble instead of metal, and in keeping with the turn of the century art nouveau style, my spikes are an opalescent ivory color. Some people remarked that it looks like I'm not wearing underwear - well, I am wearing 3 pairs of tights so I am decent lol. Again, it's to follow the art design accurately.
I also cut up a pair of white pleather boots and embroidered the gold swirls on that. The charms and the boots might be my favorite part on this costume!

Static pose costume shots taken (on an iPhone) at New Orleans Comic Con, where I debuted this costume this past weekend. A proper photoshoot is coming soon.

Character: Power Girl - Kotobukiya Bishojuo Statue version [link]
Costume made/modeled by Yaya Han, featuring:
~ custom pattern drafted bodysuit (sleeves follow design seams into front/side/back of bodysuit)
~gold metal rope & medallion
~ custom drafted seamless cape, serged & hemmed
~ metal powder cast custom made belt buckle & made-from-scratch belt
~ custom dyed & altered leather boots/gloves
~ self-styled wig
~ Boob Window content courtesy of Victoria's Secret Bombshell bra. Ladies - go out and buy one, you will thank me ♥

I was asked by :iconmostflogged: to be the Power Girl to her Supergirl and I thought - why not? Kara is a cool, tough character who doesn't hold punches, and her classic costume is actually very well designed for the 70's! I collected the materials over the summer and finally found time and an excuse to make the costume for New Orleans Comic Con. Can't wait to do a photoshoot with Jenni as Supergirl soon! <3

For this shot I kicked about 30 times lol. In heels and a waist cincher, it turned into a morning work out haha!

Officially licensed Star Trek The Original Series Uhura's Red Dress Uniform, made by Anovos Productions, LLC

I was asked by Anovos to model for them at San Diego Comic Con and do a photoshoot in the TOS red dress from Star Trek. This company's reproduction is the most accurate in existence, trust me, I've seen one of the screen-used dresses.

Oddly enough, during the 2 hours I modeled for them at their booth at SDCC, Attack of the Show came by with "Community"s Danny Pudy and did a short spoof video with him and me that aired on G4TV that same day. They dressed Danny Pudy as Spock!! I've yet to see the footage since I was at the con that entire weekend, not sure if they have it online somewhere.

Check out Anovos' full production line of licensed high quality Star Trek and Battlestar Gallactica uniforms: [link]

Character: Psylocke - Marvel's X-Men
Costume made/modeled by Yaya
Photography by Adam Jay
Psychic blade made by Volpin Props

This is a brand new Psylocke costume! I cosplayed Psylocke back in '06 but wanted to make a new version, more grounded in Reality. I drafted my own patterns for the bodysuit, arms/legs, boot covers etc, and sewed everything in a day utilizing two contrasting fabrics, heavy duty spandex & stretch pleather. The only piece I re-used from the old Psylocke costume is the sash.
My wig is sponsored by EpicCosplay!! It is incredibly thick, heat resistant, smooth and soft. You can see more of Epic Cosplay's wig line at [link]!

*When we hit 50,000 Likes on my Facebook Page, I will give away lots of free stuff as a Thank You, including a hand made corset by me! You must "like" the Yaya Han Facebook Page to be eligible for the free goodies! ^_~*
