If you're cosplaying as a superheroine, there's pretty much no way around this pose. Given my utter lack of flexibility and all the pain it involved for me to pose like this (seriously, I really need to work out), I was pleasantly suprised when I saw how this picture came out. Thank you very much, Andy, for making this possible!
This is my new Wonder Woman suit. With the help of my friend Micky Flint we made this in a week for a charity event I was in. I based this design off of the Wonder Woman fan flick from rainfall productions. It took me a long time to find a design I like that was more lifelike. I tried to wait for a Wonder Woman movie but saw this design and couldn't wait anymore. I only changed minor things because the basic design was great.
the bodice I made with suede and boning. The brown pieces attached are leather. And the armor on top is based with warbla. Then layered with leather. Then everything was colored with rub and buff and age lines were added then accented with black acrylic paint.
The bottoms I changed slightly with less layers so you can see the traditional undies underneath. They were made the same as my other costume with stretch fabric. The whole skirt was made with leather. I used a thinner leather for the flaps that was backed with black fabric. The scales are a harder leather that was covered with rub and buff.
The tiara is made entirely of warbla attached to a headband. Then covered with rub n buff and then aged with black acrylic paint.
All the other armor is made entirely of hard leather. It's all based with one piece that was painted with rub n buff silver. Then the top layers were painted with rub n buff gold. Then it was all slashed and aged with black acrylic paint. the leg guards we're shaped after the traditional W for Wonder Woman. Then the wrist guards were made with the also traditional Eagle shape. The head of the eagle is at the wrist.
This is by far my favorite design and I had a blast putting it together! I hope everyone likes it. See you all out there
ME AND MY BEAUTIFUL FLAMEBIRD CASSI ♥♥♥♥ I am so so soooo happy with how we looked in these!! we look like total badasses imma cry 8') thank you so much for taking such awesome shots of us Carroll!!!!
Anyway WOW was this costume ever an undertaking!! You can't tell here (you'll be able to in other pictures!) but my cape is 12 yards of fabric!!! It has 5 points and 4 arches, and drags on the ground slightly, since I wanted to stay as close to the New design as possible! My mask is Leather, made by ravenwood masks borrowed from my darling Cassi! my gloves are pleather on the top and spandex on the bottom, which I sewed seams into to look more like her gloves. My belt/pouches are all made out of pleather as are the base of my gauntlets, while the belt buckle and blades on my arms are made from styrene. My boots started out black and I painted them with leather paint, my leggings and top I made myself. This is definitely one of the hardest costumes I've made in a while, I'm super generally pretty happy with how it turned out considering it was my first time doing something like this. I'd like to remake the gloves in the future but besides that everything worked out really well!!
All the pain and strife of making this costume was totally worth it because DANG DO I LOVE BATWOMAN Kate Kane is a total mess but I adore her and find her very inspiring. Despite her being kind of an emotional wreck most of the time she always pulls her shit together to help people and fight bullshit cults and SHE SOLIDERS ON
A friend and I have the habit of celebrating our birthdays together; we're both from June <3 And what's better than a themeparty? This year it's videogames, so I decided to go with Maya from Borderlands 2. This is purely a test shot, figuring out the make-up & cell shading and such. Seriously, I'm never content.
She's still a WIP, but I plan to improve her for maybe a convention to get some good shots. Still need to make her pants & shoes D:
