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
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!
I made this Dawn costume based on Joseph Michael Linsner's "Cry for Dawn" comic book series for Dragoncon 2009, and only had the chance to wear it a couple of times so far. Since I spent so much time creating this costumes, I thought it would be nice to wear it to Anime USA 2010 just to get another wear out of it. Of course most people didn't recognize me since Dawn is an American series and I was at an Anime con, but I had fun taking photos in it anyway! LJinto has a unique style of composition and lighting and I really loved these two shots by him.
