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!
Thank you LJinto for taking the time to shoot with me, this is my favorite shot from our set!

New photoshoot! I love these two pics, and how contrasting they are. The one on the left is very statuesque and staged, and the one on the right is very organic. Both were both on the same location, with the same costume, but show such different aspects of the character Dawn.

I'm bringing Batgirl to C2E2! You can find me at my exhibit hall booth 216 right up front, please come by if you can!

Batgirl construction breakdown:
-Armor made from plastic (chest piece & shoulders) and urethane rubber (abdomen). Patterned and sculpted by me, molded with help from Brian Boling, finished and attached by me. (It was a bitch)
-Undersuit made from a shiny and a matte stretch pleather. Patterned and sewn by me. The quilted parts were really fun!
-Cape made from matching black and gold pleather, with lead cape weights. Swooshiest cape I have ever made lol
-Gauntlets made with Worbla & foam, covered in matching gold pleather. I really enjoyed drafting the template for these pieces! I know from how clumsy I am that I could not make the gauntlets out of resin or plastic, or even fiberglass. I would either hurt myself or destroy them at cons. So I opted for worbla/foam because it is lightweight and surprisingly durable.
-Gloves made from scratch from same gold pleather. I tried to be super accurate with the design and made individual quilted finger pads O_o
-Boots used to be Thigh High boots, I altered them severely. A note about the high heels - yes I know they are not accurate. BUT I am so short and the costume is so padded out with the armor and pleathers that I need some help on the height front to pull off that look.
-Belt made from gold powdered urethane rubber

Teaser from the latex photoshoot I did with :iconemanondesign:

I got a chance to visit the warehouse and studio of the Latex Designer Polymorphe [link] in Montreal. It was an incredible experience and I really have a lot of respect for this design house and their work. They made the mistake of letting me into the stock room XD - and I promptly tried on and purchased this purple dress. I love this color!

Styling and makeup by me

... and stalker victim! Poor girl.
I loved the movie and this was such an easy costume to make and to wear around.

Construction notes: This costume came together easily enough, but I had a hard time at first deciding what color scheme to go with. In some scenes, the dress looks light pink with hot pink layers, but that would have been way too pink, even for me O_O. Instead I went with the promotional pictures and made the costume white and pink, with hot pink bows/red shoes. The top of the dress is boned and tailored to me, and I hand-gathered the layers to ensure they ruffled evenly and as per reference. Instead of making the garters out of the same fabric as the dress, I opted for lace, to give it more a lingerie look. The wig was interesting, as Mima's hair is so choppy in the movie. I ended up cutting and styling the hell out of a random black layered wig I found locally. I already owned the shoes, gloves and thigh highs. I got lucky and found a $5 microphone which got cut up and repainted for Mima.

Costume: Fiora - Nightraven skin - League of Legends
Made/modeled by Yaya Han
Photographed by Martin Wong www.facebook.com/martinwongpho…

This image is available for a limited time as an 11x17 signed poster!

This is my full armor set & sword for Fiora - League of Legends. Made out of Worbla (sword made out of wood, hilt made of Worbla). This took over 4 weeks of learning a new technique and using a new material -it was a good and agonizing experience lol.

Couple of facts about this costume:

- I made it myself, which was a bitch. But I loved the process too! The material for the armor is Worbla, a Thermoplastic from Europe. The paint used is acrylics brush on over a spray painted base color.
Worbla is available for purchase in the Americas here!


- In the Nightraven skin, Fiora actually does not have the red streak in her hair. Yes, I am wearing red contacts.

- No, I'm not tall enough to be an accurate Fiora. But I chose this costume for the grace and dignity of the character mixed with the dark cool armor design. My motto is that anyone can cosplay whoever they want. This is a hobbyist community :)

- I thought about distressing this armor but Fiora is actually very prim and proper as a Duelist! She would not allow her armor to be dirty and dinged up :)

- Although I have worn this costume already, it's still not entirely finished. There are some things I want to add to the bodysuit underneath.

I learned how to use Worbla through Kamui Cosplay. Her video tutorials are here: www.youtube.com/user/Mogrymill…

More photo collaborations with Benny Lee of Emanon Designs!

Retro Space Girl costume designed and made by me, also modeled by me

Photography and post-processing by Benny Lee :iconemanondesign:

Benny did such an amazing job with creating the outer space environment for this shoot. I am really blown away!

Costume construction notes: The idea of doing a space girl has been floating in my head for a while before I made this costume. I love old sci-fi movies ala The Day The Earth Stood Still and Barbarella. For my ode to retro futura, I drafted up a bodysuit and made it out silver PVC vinyl. It's fully lined in a comfortable stretch material, and I added pink trim all around the edges and keyhole. I also made my own trim by stretching spandex over batting - yay puffy retro futuristic trim!
The belt, arm warmers and leg warmers were the finishing touches. I lost my cute pink boots from the original shoot, or I would have used them over the flimsy leg warmers. I'm considering getting more vinyl and making boot covers. The wig was bought locally and I poofed up the back for a beehive look. The headset came from Target and I used a nerf gun which I painted pink and silver to match.

More photos and info on the costume can be found on my website: [link]

First photos of a new costume I made for Ikkicon. I found this artwork piece by mangaka Carnelian and fell completely in love with the design!
[link]
It's Sheryl Nome from Macross Frontier, but as an adorable pirate girl! I happened to have very similar over the knee lace up boots, as well as 2 yards of deep purple Madonna velvet and black leather on hand, so I decided to push back my other cosplay plans to make this costume.

Construction notes: I started out by serging strips of magenta organza together, then hand ruffling the lengths and making a multi-layer ruffle skirt with them. I used the same organza to make the top and scalloped edged ruffle sleeves. I adorned the top and skirt with sequin trim because I thought it would be very Sheryl lol.
The captain's coat was fun and annoying to make. In hindsight I used three of the most difficult to work with fabrics on one garment, what was I thinking? The coat is velvet lined with two-tone taffeta, with all the black leather trim home made and carefully sewn on. I modified a pattern heavily and drafted parts of the coat on myself. It is reinforced with an extra layer of material inside, and boning.
The gold buttons have anchors on them which I thought was cute. I then made the ascot and garter belt, and covered a $5 Halloween felt pirate hat in black pleather left over from another costume. I also happened to have a nice beaded gold trim and purple and lavender feathers to embellish it with. The heart was kind of last minute put together and I may redo it in the near future. I did find some time to finally make Sheryl's microphone out of a mish mash of materials. Figuring out the braiding was interesting lol.

All in all, the costume came together in about 3 days of work and I am pretty happy with it! The colors are so cute together and I love my pirate hat. I am taking off the bows on the coat because they cover up all the arrow trim I spent so long making and stitching on. Definitely plan to wear it again soon, and do a location photoshoot!

Thank you to Brent LaVelle [link] for the studio shots!

My last cosplay of 2011! Litchi has been on my to do list since the first arcade game was imported to the USA at Planet Zero in Houston a few years ago!!! I was lucky enough to be in the area and was one of the first people to try my hands at it. Litchi's design and fighting style with the staff was instantly my favorite. I also really approve of girls in glasses. AND I love pandas, and she has one hanging on her head. It was love at first button push lol.

This costume is entirely crafted by me as usual, with more photos coming soon.

You can see a video collage from Ikkicon with Riddle and me where Litchi is featured here: [link]

Thank you to Brent LaVelle :iconlavelle: for these shots, taken at his photo station at Ikkicon where I debuted Litchi.
