Character: Sue Storm a.k.a. Invisible Woman
Based on: Kotobukiya Bishoujo Figure www.nekomagic.net/figure_news/…
Costume made/modeled by Yaya Han
Photographed by Brian Boling www.flickr.com/photos/brianbol…

Costume construction notes:
This cosplay happened because I found the most amazing fabric for it! It's a opalescent 4-way stretch self-healing rubberized spandex! It feels like a thin neoprene as used for drysuits (for diving). It was only available in that color so I bought 3 yards of it, and realized that I would make Sue Storm's suit with it. The Kotobukiya statue even has a opalescent finish.
I made the bodysuit using Kwiksew's center seam bodysuit pattern, then drew lines on it, and cut the suit apart O_O. That was nerve wracking. I used the backside of the same fabric as contrast trim and stitched it all the way down both sides of the front and back of the suit, using a zigzag stitch. Then I finished the bodysuit with an invisible zipper.
I also make the 4 symbol (Worbla with matching fabric covered over it), belt and collar, and styled the wig, which is from www.animestuffstore.com

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

Madame Hydra commands you to HAIL HYDRA or else!!

Costume designed and made by Yaya Han
Wig by Arda Wigs

I wanted to make a Madame Hydra costume that was my own design, but still paid tribute to her authentic design in the comic books. I came up with the idea of using 3 different materials to pattern out a 3 piece bodysuit, and contrasting the green with black police grade gun holsters and belts. I cut and straightened the lace front wig and got to reuse the 12-ply bullwhip from my Catwoman costume.

Also love playing with makeup on this costume!

Character: C.C. - Code Geass (Artbook dress)
Costume made/modeled by Yaya
Photography by Brian Boling www.flickr.com/photos/brianbol…

New photoshoot of C.C. at the Palace of Fine Arts in San Francisco!! I really wanted to take a pretty cupcake costume to this amazing location and I'm so happy Brian was willing to shoot it!

This costume was made entirely by me. I used about 14 yards of dark red heavy weight satin, not to mention all the yards of organza for the interlay, and tulle for the petticoat.
I made the templates for the butterflies and trim by cutting up the actual CLAMP artwork and sizing it up on the computer to myself. My friends Jessica and Megan helped me trace out the templates to make patterns, and together we transferred all the patterns onto fabric which I already cut and sewed into the skirts. Then I cut out all the trim and butterflies with a soldering tool, which took many days of breathing fumes and sore/burnt fingers. I also made the bodice, sleeves, hair pieces, choker, shoulder straps, petticoat... everything to complete this costume.

Waaaah I'm so excited to share new Fiora photos with you guys! I recently had the pleasure of visiting the beautiful country of Romania, as a Guest of East European Comic Con, and during my stay there, our hosts Shjinu and Gabi took us on a castle visit for an epic cosplay photoshoot!
The weather was perfect, the setting was divine, and I'm just so grateful for the chance to dress up as my favorite LoL Champion on a real Medieval castle ground. 

Costume: Fiora - Nightraven skin - League of Legends

Made/modeled by Yaya Han
Photographed by Benni & Kamui of Kamui Cosplay www.facebook.com/KamuiCos

Couple of facts about this costume:

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


- 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…

I'm excited for the opportunity to design and make the costume for a villain in an upcoming Steampunk action adventure web series called "Archangel"! I'll share details about the project soon, this is truly just a sneak peek at it! 
The jacket was especially fun to make, and I used 3 different fabrics for the outer layer and silk for the lining. I also made the feather collar, steel boned Victorian cut corset, leather pants and armor pieces (Worbla!!) The tailoring was very important for this costume, and I wanted it to look authoritative yet still feminine.
