First image from a modeling photoshoot for Crimson Chain Leatherworks (and makeup close up) - I did not make this outfit, but was asked to wear CCLW's hand made leather pieces and accessories. Having seen their pieces up close, I knew what great quality they were and I love this company's design aesthetics. I am also wearing a winged jetpack which was a collaboration between us (my <a href-"[link]">Steampunk wings and CCLW's leather and metal work).

Makeup-wise, I went for a harder & edgier look, using Ben Nye red pigments to create the bold extended eye shadow, and MAC and Sephora brand shadows (3 shades) to my eyes, from highlights to the blackest black color. MAC and Sephora both make great black shadows and I highly recommend them. For this look I "overdrew" the eyeliner (MAC Fluidline) to the inner corners of my eyes. It's usually something I only reserve for very staement-making makeup. I finished off the eyes with thick false lashes and bold eyebrows.
For my lips I used dark brown eyeliner pencil to contour, a dark red lipstick, a brush to blend the color to the lipliner, and gold shadow pigment for highlight. My blush is Bare Minerals.

I'm sure I'll get lots of "Oooh photoshop" comments, and I just want to say, for the record: Anyone who does professional photoshoots and makeup understands how much good lighting and good makeup can achieve. (I use a variety of products to even out my skintone, tame under eye darkness, shade bone structure etc, before I apply any color to my face.)
Photoshop can enhance the intensity of the colors, shadows and highlights and is perfectly integrated into the process of Photography. Photoshop is used in not only in fashion and people photography, but commercial products, landscape, architecture photography etc.
When it comes to people photography, there is a difference between a convention snapshot, candid portrait at a party etc. and a professionally set up fashion, glamour or cosplay photoshoot, where the objective is to create a beautiful image and strive for Perfection.
I also want to point out that digital artists use Photoshop, Illustrator and other programs to create fantastic images, why would photographers who shoot digital not be allowed to use Photoshop? Many traditional artists who paint on paper will scan in artwork and finish them in Photoshop, tweaking the lines, combine pieces from various art pieces and correcting the colors. I see Photography being no different.

So, take it or leave it, but thanks for reading.

This is my favorite setting from the Catwoman photoshoot I did with Bryan Humphrey! After shooting outside for a couple of hours we moved to inside this decrepit warehouse space. I have no clue how Bryan lit this space but it really looks like a comic book to me.
Also, full-body shot of the costume! Wish my boot straps weren't slipping down :(

Character: Catwoman from Arkham City (video game)
Costume made by: Yaya
Model: Yaya
Photography: Bryan Humphrey

How I made this:
This costume was made in 50 hours, but only takes 5 minutes to put on lol. To match the hexagon fabric in the video game, I had the pattern designed by my friend Jinyo and printed up at Fabric On Demand. The secondary fabric is a rubber coated spandex.
Cathy of :icongstqfashions: saved me hours of work by graciously letting me base my bodysuit off of the pattern she had made already for this same costume for a customer. I had to redesign most pieces of the pattern to fit my bodyshape and height, but it was nice to not have to make a full mock-up from scratch, and with my tight work schedule, I appreciated every second of time saved.
I sewed the costume entirely myself, as usual, making sure to triple-stitch the seams (100+ of them) and also top stitch all of them. I also made the matching accessories such as gloves/hood/ears/sculpted metal bits/altered boots etc.
I re-used the goggles from my other Catwoman costume because I kind of hate the design of the Arkham City goggles, and I already made perfectly usable Catwoman goggles before. :)

Character: Psylocke - Marvel's X-Men
Costume made/modeled by Yaya
Photography by Adam Jay
Psychic blade made by Volpin Props

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.
My wig is sponsored by EpicCosplay!! It is incredibly thick, heat resistant, smooth and soft. You can see more of Epic Cosplay's wig line at [link]!

Felicia Cosplay by Vampy
Darkstalkers
MVC3 Alternate (fangs and the works :)
Photography by Long Vo ( [link] )

The paws had to be as huge as possible on my hands enough to move, since playing the game, in cosplay form I think it had to be done with and a more squishy paw. This cosplay also has fangs added. The fabric took the most time because just like real cat fur, I didnt want a fuzzy fabric, I wanted to mimic the actual game, so dark purple/black fabric was needed in this treatment. The nails are molded each piece by hand and sanded down to mimic real nails instead of ones that look "fake". Overall this project took months down to each piece of fabric and overall look. This will be debuting SDCC at the Capcom/Udon Entertainment booth Friday.

I made the suit of armor mostly out of foam, but the chest piece I sculpted and cast in urethane rubber. I made the bodysuit from a custom printed lycra with a design I lifted from a render.

This photo naming system is getting confusing with Roman Numerals...maybe I should stop being lazy and put in actual titles.

This costume took a couple months to make. The purple snakeskin spandex is actually from 3 awful clubbing dresses that I found online, because purple snakeskin spandex apparently does not exist in yardage form (I looked everywhere!). The straps and detailing on the coat and shoes are made out of white pleather and purple suede. The teddy, thigh inserts, and cuff are all made from the same mauve lace, and the teddy has a built in bra. The dicky, gloves, and choker were sewn from a burgundy cotton.

The pauldron was sculpted out of Klean Klay Firm, molded in silicone, and cast in resin, and her gauntlet is made of sintra. The finger tip armor is actually thimbles, apoxie sculpt, and zip ties. The ankle armor was made out of craft foam for minimal weight. Lastly the sword hilt was sculpted and cast in resin, the handle is apoxie sculpt and MDF, and the blade is sintra. I currently only have the untransformed sword, but I'll be making the whip version soon.

Yaya and I thought it would be fun to do a photoshoot of Sif and Loki, in the hot as Balls summer of Georgia. This is the first time we have ever shot together, other than sweating my horns off, it was fun.

Also For those who don't know, female Loki is an actually character in Thor books by J. Michael Stracyzinski and artist Olivier Coipel. Its amazing go read it NOWNOWNOW! or I will ban you from my page, for reals. :P

Harley and Ivy by Rei-Doll Poison Nature by Rei-Doll

OK, people are just keep telling me that's this is not a steampunk )
I can say, that this is the idea of the artist :iconnoflutter: and announced as Steampunk Victorian version )
The whole group on the picture is more steampunkish, though I just keep the idea. I know that goggles don't make this costume a steampunk, but the whole image FULL of steampunk feel. Poison Ivy loves nature she does not need to use lots of mechanics. I feel this as steampunk, steampunk is not just the pile of gear-wheels and mechanics, it's also an IDEA =)
Moreover costume is not finished I'm planning to add some details.

Premiere of costumes - TNT GT 7 Mexico (video)

Mystique, X-Men, comics

I love this shot even better, it's like Mystique is going to break into a secret military base somewhere in Mexico according to Magneto's plan x)
I actually wanted to make a Mystique costume during a couple of years. And finally we were invited as cospaly guests to Mexico for the second time and decided to prepare new costumes for the show =)
This is the compilation of diffirent Mystique's versions with golden skulls, like in the old versions and long boots and gloves like on figurine versions. But Mystique can be different, that's the main point x) So, sorry fans, if you don't recognize the version of the costume, I hope you'll like mine too )

I'm still on the fence on how I feel about this light effect, a few folk have said it looks good but maybe I just wish I had a darker background and a better shot to show it off on.
