Character: Psylocke - Marvel's X-Men Costume made/modeled by Yaya Photography by Chris Gomez Photo location: New Orleans
This is a brand new Psylocke costume! I cosplayed Psylocke back in '06 but wanted to make a new version, more grounded in Reality. I drafted my own patterns for the bodysuit, arms/legs, boot covers etc, and sewed everything in a day utilizing two contrasting fabrics, heavy duty spandex & stretch pleather. The only piece I re-used from the old Psylocke costume is the sash.
We also wanted to approach the photo with a more realistic flair, which is why I just used my own hair up in a top knot. The background was a large carpet which Loretta and Brian held up for us while I sat on it. Chris found a Katana for us as well!

Uploading more shots from one of my favorite photoshoots ever.
Theme: Tribute to Cleopatra Photographer: Dan Santoni Hair stylist: Michael Hall makeup: Yaya costume design and creation: Yaya
This was one of the most amazing photo shoot days... I shot with two photographer on the same day, from 10am to like 3am, and produced three of the best shots in my portfolio. It was everything from exciting, creative, exhausting, glamorous, painful and satisfying. The shot above is by Dan Santoni, who is also responsible for the set. His lighting set up was insane - I stared into about 8 lights at the same time, it seemed.
Construction Info: Jessica Rabbit has always been one of the most mesmerizing cartoon characters to me - as a kid she made me watch the movie over and over again, and as a cosplayer, she was always a huge challenge for me to portrait. I've been collecting materials for her for almost 2 years, and wanted to make this costume to the best to my abilities.
The shape is not photoshopped, just clever cosplay engineering. I drafted & made a custom corset to create the extreme shape and then made the dress to fit over it. I engineered 2 Victoria's Secret Miraculous bras into the corset, which is steel boned coutil. The extreme illusion is created by pulling in the waist, padding the top and wearing a booty bump hahaha. The dress itself is made from a spandex sequin fabric, and 1000+ S20 Swarovski crystals are glued on the fabric for extra bling, tedious time consuming handywork with help from Mary Cahela. I specifically chose pink instead of red for the dress because in the movie her famous singing scene features a pink dress. I also like the color combo: orange hair/pink dress/purple gloves more than the red dress which can sometimes come across as "lady of the night" in certain lighting. Pink makes the entire outfit look more cartoon-y! Here is a reference image of Jessica in the pink dress. Here is a youtube video of Jessica in the pink dress doing her famous stage performance from the movie. Here is a work in progress collage of my Jessica Rabbit dress.
I adore my wig which is a Matilda from Arda Wigs! Styled with help from Ara Fernando!
