... 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.

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!
Anna helped me get into this "cage" that was at least 4 feet off the ground, with 4 inch heels and giant wings on, and we got a nice "caged bird" shot. I love the vines in the background of the top shot as well, and the stark contrast to my pure white "goddess" look.
Thank you Anna for coming to AUSA just to shoot us cosplayers!

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.

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…

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

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.

Character: Litchi Faye Ling
Costume made and modeled by Yaya (moi)

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.

model is me

This set was shot in a library inside a condo complex - because of the semi-public nature of the location I thought the outfit might be a tad risque, but Kevin managed through his high quality work to make this theme look sexy but not overly naughty. I really love some of the images and am really glad we were able to use this location!
