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
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]
Character: Lady Sif - Thor (Marvel) Costume made by Yaya Photography by Judy Stephens Makeup and model: Yaya
I made this costume for San Diego Comic Con after gathering materials and reference for several months. I love badass warrior girls and the color red, so Sif was a no brainer! I really liked her character in the comic book as well, from the fact that she grew up with Thor and trained along side him, to their on and off romance over the years, and Sif's strong, loyal and courageous nature. I used a mix of materials for the costume, from suede to leather to metallic 4-way stretch to fur and wood. I drafted patterns for all the pieces and made everything within about 3 - 4 days. The corset is steel boned, and it was fun to make arm and leg armor pieces. I also enjoyed beading the wig and making the adornments on the hips.
More pics coming soon, and I plan on re-wearing Sif at Dragoncon!
hi all, this is a picture i drew of my gf. so fast we have been together for 4 yrs already, and it so happened that on the 1st of march is our 4th anniversary! well we celebrated today and we went out for a good dinner and go see miyazaki's new animation "howl's moving castle", it was really a great show! well anyway back to topic, this pic is her in her mini skirt and a red blouse i bought for her, there's some mistakes though but it'll take too long a time to change it. anyway i made her abit more lenghty as she's quite a tall girl haha, lucky she's shorter than mi by 0.5cm, i'm safe... phew! and i juz noticed its one of the very few times i actually painted a girl who i fully clothed haha anyway C&C welcome!
did some slight changes to the face and colour the pic.
everyday in camp, i would see alot of female officers dressed in their uniform, i kinda like the colour of the uniform and how the gold badges fit in to the whole image so i decided to do a female captain in a "modified" uniform (shorter skirt and tighter low cut blouse) haha. well she's suppose to be in some kind of plane or space ship's bunk. and i made her look it bit punkish in a way biting her lolipop stick which i did i could have done a better job. haha anyway it's still abit messy coz i din clean up the lines but i guess i'll leave it like this since i'm too lazy to carry on the finishing. hope it still look acceptable, and i hope i had acheived the perspective i want haha. C&C welcome!
hi all! my girlfren's bday is coming so i tot i have to paint her something to cheer her up since she's quite stressed out after her exams last week. its actually me and her in a comical kind of look. this time i tried to use my own style combine with ashley wood's kind of painting (again) to try and see if i can can get something new. but i dunno if it works haha. anyway she's turning 19 and i wish her all the best in her studies and i love you, pozzie!! had to stay up late to do this coz i'm kinda busy these few weeks, alot of training going on in camp and lack of sleep. i hope this pic look ok and i hope she dun see it till tmr when i go and have it printed at the print shop and give it to her as a present. C&C are always welcome, feel free to comment
's character Illya I aged her a bit for my version hope they like it wanted to do something a bit different but then noticed 's character reminded me so much of how my character Kitsu used to look a long time ago when she had short hair, lol
