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.

Character: Original Steampunk Madam
Designed, created and modeled by Yaya
Photography by Anna Fisher [link]

I'm seriously in love with this photo by Anna Fisher. She went through a lot of effort to book space in the Juliet Supper Club in New York City and this was shot on the last day of New York Comic Con.

I made the Steampunk Madam costume a few years ago for Anime Weekend Atlanta, as a collaboration with Danny Ashby of Outland Armor. You can read my construction notes and see more images here: [link]
The opium pipe is antique, the hat is a loaner from the high end hat makers at The Blond Swan [link] costume designed and made by me, and the brass fan was made by Danny Ashby [link] The Madam is a character in Danny's Steampunk world, and I think this shot really summs her up. :D

The last time I tried to put the latex suit on, the zipper top broke *saaaad* and I just got it fixed (dude, it only cost $8!), so to celebrate, have some more Felicia Hardy action.

Frameshot grabbed a few quick photos of me out on the floor of Dragoncon 2009. These two don't show anyone in the background, yay. I was surrounded pretty fast by a circle of people with cameras, especially after James asked a super toned Red Sonja to join me for photos lol.
Dragoncon is my favorite con, but sometimes the - sorry for the expression but there is no other way to put it - frenzy of fanboys just becomes too much, and I didn't have a chaperon with me eep. I excused myself before taking too many pics or doing any typical Black Cat poses.

Ok, I found the Bodypaint category, yay! I stuck it in Artisan Crafts before since I did spend over 10 hours making the headpiece, bracelets, sash belt and other accessories, but the painting is such a large part of the costume.

I am a huge fan of the Mummy movies and have always liked the tragically romantic lovestory of Imhotep and Anck-su-namun. I watch all of those movies often while I'm working on costumes. A few months ago while re-watching the first movie, I thought of Dragoncon 2008 coming up and what a perfect opportunity it would be to do the bodypaint of Anck-su-namun at that event. Looking at the footage, it seems eady enough, just very time consuming.The accessories she wears in that scene are also right up my alley with the beading and the Eqyptian theme.
I got really excited to do the costume after talking to some bodypaint friends of ours who were interested in painting me up like that. Sadly they were not able to make it to Dragoncon, but Brian and our friend Patterson, who runs www.savethemummy.com [link] and is just as big of a Mummy-geek as I am, stepped up and painted me instead!

Construction notes: Of course most of this costume is the painting. It took 6 hours, and that was with us preparing ahead of time. We used Mehron gold to cover my body and Ben Nye waterbased black for the designs. Brian and Patterson followed the reference very carefully and we tried to get all the lines and patterns right, down to the correct number of stripes on my legs and arms, and the neck piece. I can't thank these two enough for helping me! I imagined in my mind that Anck-su-namun would be gilded, the more to be un-touchable by anyone but the Pharaoh, hence the gold Mehron. But the paint ended up turning out much shinier than the movie version. I think I figured out a way to do it more toned down next time, but it would have to be a really important occasion before all of us are willing to go through this long painting process again lol. I had to take two long showers to scrub off the paint afterward, and my toes were gold for a week afterward lol.
All painting aside, the accessories were also vital to this outfit. I studied the references for a long time and then set out to replicate them. Because all my beading supplies were packed away for a move, I had to buy everything including beading needles, and make it all from scratch. The wrist cuffs, Horus arm bands and ankle cuffs are made of embossed and painted foamie sheets, the beaded belts, necklace and hair piece took several hours of beading, and I made the belt sashes out of a beautiful curtain material. I made the little tiny cobra out of model magic, and wore sandals instead of going barefoot to adhere to hotel policies. The only other piece of clothing I wore was a black thong, as I didn't want to appear nekkid with a tan or gold one. I did also wear pasties that were painted over and blended into the design. My wig is the same one I used for Cleopatra.

I am so happy that, with the help of my friends, I was able to do this costume. It was very strenuous and toe numbing to stand for 9 hours straight - 6 for the painting, 3 to walk around afterward - and I was really exhausted afterward, but it was all worth it. So much love and thanks to my friends who painted me and walked around with me so I didn't have to be a lonely gold statue so late at night. I posed with Patterson's "Save the Mummy Franchise" banner while in the costume, and was stalked by a a lot of photographers lol. The best compliment of that night came from the group that did the Bodypainting panel at Dragoncon, wo said to Patterson and me that we really accomplished what they were talking about in the panel, which is "dressing someone in paint".

New costume photoshoot! I made a 2nd version of the Space Girl outfit a little while ago from scratch - with an even more retro design, bodysuit and high collar and all. I got a new wig and gave it a beehive lol, and grabbed a mic set from Target. My gun is the only thing I used from my old costume.

I wore this outfit at Fanime (or better, after Fanime ended on Monday) to do a photoshoot with Oscar Chang of Divideby0.com [link]

He took me to this amazing lit wall in the hotel and we pulled up various furniture pieces, and Oscar used his lighting skills to set up these images. I just love them!
The one on the left is my favorite. We did some variations on the chair and I called it my Captain Kirk impression lol.

Thank you so much for shooting with me, Oscar!

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!

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

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!

New costume debut - Dragoncon 2011

This is a collaboration between Pit Viper Studios [link] and moi. I was approached by Len and Audrey several months ago with the idea of modeling a one-off set of Baroness armor for their prop studio as a way to promote their company and our mutual fandom love for GI Joe. I was honored to be considered! Since I had been planning on making Baroness at some point any way, it seemed like the perfect time to get to work.
Toby and Audrey sculpted the pieces, and Len, Kevin, John and the rest of the Pit Viper crew cast the amazing set of armor for me, made of fiberglass. It is surprisingly comfortable and sturdy to wear and I could move around easily. And it looks totally badass and protective!

I took on the responsibility to put the rest of the suit together. Looking at many many reference images of Anastasia (:iconadamhughes: and :icondiablo2003: amongst others), I decided to put my own spin on her signature bodysuit. My goal was for it to be more than just a spandex bodysuit, so I designed a two piece suit featuring seaming details and quilted sides down the arms and legs, as well as scalloped three-piece sections of leg armor. The material is a rubber coated 4-way stretch spandex, which I chose because I wanted the gloss-coated armor to stand out from the matte-finish suit and contrast each other. I made a pattern for the bodysuit and sewed it from scratch. The wig is a pretty lace front that was sleek and not too long, since I didn't want to cover up the armor too much. The glasses were a surprising bitch to find lol. You can't walk into an Optic store and buy a set of rims, they'd have to do an exam and fit non-prescription lenses in. And I didn't want to have lens-less rims! So after much searching I got these at a Dollar Store.. in Montreal, Canada lol.
The weapons were so much fun to pose with. I borrowed a big ass gun from :iconbeautifully-twisted: since she did Sweet Pea from Sucker Punch the day before. Thanks, babe! (We later on discovered that the scope is mounted backwards, oh well!) I had also brought a P-90 which would have looked cool but I couldn't carry more than 2 guns around. The hand gun is my Amber gun haha.

Honestly the only thing I'm somewhat missing is a belt. I debated for a while whether or not to have a belt because it will break up the stream-lined seams I so painstakingly put on the bodysuit.... then I got stuck in Germany for three days because of Hurricane Irene and lost that time to work on costumes for Dragoncon. So I said screw the belt. But after wearing the costume, I must say it would be nice to have someplace to put my room key/money/phone, so a belt will be made when I find the time!

Photos by Anna Fisher ([link])! Incredibly fast turn around and gorgeous shots, thank you, girl!
