Introducing my Arkham City style Harley Quinn. I decided to do this piece way back when I first played Arkham Asylum and loved her nurse outfit, but I’ve been juggling one project after another since then so I only got to slowly hack at it in my extremely spare time. Before I knew it, it was mid 2010 and I’d barely done more than rough her out, then the Arkham City 3d model sheet came out for her new costume and I really loved it as well. I also realized that most aspects of her costume are the same (her corset, boots, gloves, and bracelets are unchanged. So I began sculpting the Arkham City Harley with the intention of casting it and modding the original torso weapon and head pieces into Nurse Harley. I couldn't decide how severe her expression would be so I left the eyebrows off entirely, since they are needle thin in the game I thought it would look nicer to just paint them on as furrowed or relaxed as I wanted. I’m pretty happy with how these came out and it’s awesome to have a Harley Quinn trilogy on my shelf along with my “What-A-Bat!” piece. The piece is 12 inches tall, made in Super Sculpey firm
It's been a while since I posted the Yakuza Bodypaint images - tonight I remembered that I had these indoor shots after seeing the artwork that Pin Up artist Nicole Brune is working on based on this look of mine.
These were the first shot we took after completing the bodypaint. The quality of these indoor photos are low due to not having a proper studio set up, hence we went outside (hiding me nekkidness as much as possible from the public eeep!) for the really nice location photos (see below).
But you can see the paint job and colors really well in these pics!
About the project: In October 2009 I was painted up by Master Body Painter Nick Wolfe! We've been friends for years but never had the chance to collaborate before this bodypaint. Nick suggested something Asian inspired and I blurted out "Yakuza tattoo!" and the idea for this theme was born!
Nick did the painting in 4 and a half hours, using Diamond FX paint. He looked up the kanjis for "Dragon Queen" and painted them as well. For those who don't take the time to read my Profile info, yes I am the model in these images. I did the face makeup and hair, inspired by traditional Japanese Geisha, and modernized. I also bought traditional Japanese hair pins, and the over kimono was made by me, originally for my XXXHolic cosplay. I love being able to re-use costume parts haha.
