More details on how I made this cosplay soon in my blog post for NYCC!
Felicia Cosplay by Vampy Darkstalkers MVC3 Alternate (fangs and the works Photography by Long Vo ( [link] )
The paws had to be as huge as possible on my hands enough to move, since playing the game, in cosplay form I think it had to be done with and a more squishy paw. This cosplay also has fangs added. The fabric took the most time because just like real cat fur, I didnt want a fuzzy fabric, I wanted to mimic the actual game, so dark purple/black fabric was needed in this treatment. The nails are molded each piece by hand and sanded down to mimic real nails instead of ones that look "fake". Overall this project took months down to each piece of fabric and overall look. This will be debuting SDCC at the Capcom/Udon Entertainment booth Friday.
This was taken by the wonderful and one of my favorite photographers Anna Fischer at Katsucon in Washington DC.
I was a guest doing a few panels and decided that my Kotobukiya figure in my room needed to be made into a cosplay so 2 days before the convention I decided on just gunning for it. I posted online some of the progress pictures and also a video here [link]
I shot it with Anna and hopefully I can finish all the details in place by Wondercon next week
I really loved Batgirl and hopefully I can post more pictures soon of the whole outfit ^_^
This was the last photo we took at 3am, after 4 hours of photo shooting. I only realized the next day that this photo's posing resembled the official Arkham City promo artwork for Catwoman. Bryan did some post-processing to give the photo a similar treatment as the promo art and this is the result! I am so thrilled over this image! As a cosplayer, I enjoy the challenge of imitating a fantastical fictional character, and photographs like this reflects the hard work I put into the costume and my love for the character, as well as the photographer's finesse. I couldn't ask for more joy in Cosplay.
How I made this: This costume was made in 50 hours, but only takes 5 minutes to put on lol. To match the hexagon fabric in the video game, I had the pattern designed by my friend Jinyo and printed up at Fabric On Demand. The secondary fabric is a rubber coated spandex. Cathy of saved me hours of work by graciously letting me base my bodysuit off of the pattern she had made already for this same costume for a customer. I had to redesign most pieces of the pattern to fit my bodyshape and height, but it was nice to not have to make a full mock-up from scratch, and with my tight work schedule, I appreciated every second of time saved. I sewed the costume entirely myself, as usual, making sure to triple-stitch the seams (100+ of them) and also top stitch all of them. I also made the matching accessories such as gloves/hood/ears/sculpted metal bits/altered boots etc. I re-used the goggles from my other Catwoman costume because I kind of hate the design of the Arkham City goggles, and I already made perfectly usable Catwoman goggles before.
Lady Punisher Cosplay made entirely by me Photography by the most amazing Anna Fischer (I love her) taken at Katsucon Washington DC
I have always loved the Punisher ever since I first checked out the comics when I was little. I loved Frank Castle's story and how he was a vigilante crime fighter and had this toughness about him, and I am usually drawn to cosplay people that have a twisted background, or fundamentally interesting dent in their past that makes them tick the way they do. (I like the demented in a sense) I also love that the Punisher always had heavy artillery with him, which makes him carry such awesome guns. I tried to get similar looking airsoft guns for this shoot, possibly someday the real thing.
The belt was the hardest part of this cosplay because although it doesnt look like it, the belt is made up of 40+ pieces of extra pieces of marine vinyl that were carefully layed out and cut accordingly, since I wanted to keep it true to comic book form. I was inspired by Kotobukiya's beautiful bishoujo figures that I collect, so I cut my wig in a somewhat sexier cut, and made the boots to have a 70's cut to them. The fabric I chose almost mimics the look of a wetsuit, which is almost like a Gore-tex material, super hard to find but picked up enough to finish this look. I will be posting pictures of how I made the whole outfit soon Makeup and hair styling etc: All my own
My Marvel Bishoujo Black Widow Kotobukiya Cosplay [link] I made just in time for San Diego Comic con. This was made in about a week. (The original is a gold belt in the comics, but I decided to do this version since it was harder, I tend to like a challenge)
The process was quite a stressful one since I been working on and off with the idea of doing a Black Widow cosplay for quite some time (about 2 years) but looking for the right materials for the bracelets and belt took the longest to figure out. So I just went ahead and made the belt myself using good ol' bondo/plaster, 3 kinds of sanding grits, a couple of hours to mold each piece on carved (also sanded) wood, spray paint etc etc, I'll be putting up the process on my site [link] soon for those who are curious
As for the gun its a HK replica airsoft that I own
