I see the Baroness as having a lot of class and being ruthless at the same time. I gave her the trench coat to show a little sophistication. I spent some time looking at faces by the great J. Scott Campbell. I really love how it turned out and am happy with the graphic look it ended up with.
I don't post enough goofy shots, so have one of me and Judy at SDCC 2011!
Yes, when I really love my friends, I chomp on their heads.
Judy is expecially awesome because she is the biggest advocate for us cosplayers at Marvel. She is a web designer for them as well as official convention photographer, and she always goes out of her way to do photoshoots with cosplayers. Some of my strongest photos have been taken by her! Judy also runs a blog on Marvel.com where she talks about Marvel cosplays, check it out here: [link]
Thank you, Kevin Green, for this snapshot of us. That was on the Marvel stage right after the costume contest. XD
Hello cheesy title! Sorry, I couldn't resist. This pic makes me happy.
Photo and post-production by SGH PhotoArt Character - Baroness, G.I. Joe Costume made and modeled by me Cobra armor by PitViper Studios Bazooka provided by Cobra's Finest
This was taken at Dragoncon during the Cobra's Finest photoshoot. Someone suggested I try to pick up the real metal bazooka they had, which by the way was taller than me even with heels on, for a photo. It became a comical sight watching me balance this heavy massive weapon on my shoulder, but I do love this shot that Stacy managed to get!
Yes, this is how we roll at Cobra.

More photo collaborations with Benny Lee of Emanon Designs!
Retro Space Girl costume designed and made by me, also modeled by me
Photography and post-processing by Benny Lee
Benny did such an amazing job with creating the outer space environment for this shoot. I am really blown away!
Costume construction notes: The idea of doing a space girl has been floating in my head for a while before I made this costume. I love old sci-fi movies ala The Day The Earth Stood Still and Barbarella. For my ode to retro futura, I drafted up a bodysuit and made it out silver PVC vinyl. It's fully lined in a comfortable stretch material, and I added pink trim all around the edges and keyhole. I also made my own trim by stretching spandex over batting - yay puffy retro futuristic trim! The belt, arm warmers and leg warmers were the finishing touches. I lost my cute pink boots from the original shoot, or I would have used them over the flimsy leg warmers. I'm considering getting more vinyl and making boot covers. The wig was bought locally and I poofed up the back for a beehive look. The headset came from Target and I used a nerf gun which I painted pink and silver to match.
More photos and info on the costume can be found on my website: [link]
Another Secret Invasion cover. Some of these books had a real glossy finish, they are the worst to draw on. I basically had to just do straight to inks with this one. I couldnt get any pencils to show up on it. So this is just straight inks to the cover with out any underdrawing.
Full Color Commission From GIJoe, comes the Cobra Nightstalker Troopers... all female band o' soldiers.
Fun one to work on. Seemed to particularly take a long time. I think I've gotten a little slow. But its because I've started using techniques to enhance the quality. Eh... trade one for the other I guess!
These girls appeared in just one episode of the original series, but they became unforgettable. If only Hasbro could make an action figure of them! This fan art was made for the 5th COBRA Art Jam project, Hope you like it.
