Well, I wanted to get a Nightwing tattoo to go opposite of my Batman, but I didn't want it to be incredibly obvious. So I went with the mythology as it being a Kryptonian bird. End result was basically if you bred a hawk and a phoenix.

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
