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 ^_^
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
makeup/wig haircut: Me

Thanks for coming by :3
i also got these social networking things, please add and keep in touch, i reply and read majority of everything, it would be awesome to meet ya on them
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.
I really love cosplaying in Gantz and it was fun to recreate this image with the use of a really huge sword like they have in the manga/anime. The whole angle of the shot made it look like the sword was insanely huge, thus making MOAR awesome
Hi everyone! Its been a while since I've posted but Im super happy about this newer cosplay I made. I made all of the cosplay myself as well as makeup/styling. The God Of War series is definitely one of my favorite franchises and definitely had to do the Golden Fleece version. It was my favorite and also the hardest to make. This cosplay took me one week without much sleep just to be made in time for PAX East. The lower armor can be seen in other pictures I will be posting soon. Photography is by Lieven Leroy fb : [link] part of the Wild Places project along with Anna Fischer in Arizona
please add my facebook for more cosplay updates ^_^ Im working on about 3 cosplays a month now so Im excited to show progress <3

This is my Boa Hancock Cosplay I finished just in time for Fanime She is my favorite character in One Piece, and I've always wanted to cosplay her, and of course, as usual, use my own hair for the character. (like how I did Psylocke) I cut my hair like Boa's right before the convention and overall this cosplay took me about less than a week to make (which includes looking for fabric, shoes, fur, molding earring/paint etc)
