I love overhead shots like these, as long as you make sure the photographer is standing closer to your head as opposed to your feet. In this case, the contrast of black on white emphasizes the silhouette of the figure, and I love that the only popping color is my skin. The masked eyes also contrast the sensual yet relaxed pose. Even while Black Cat is chilling out, she is a mystery ^_-...

Black Cat costume made and modeled by me

I am so fond of the Dead or Alive games lol!

As for Christie, well I never thought of cosplaying her actually, but after doing a swimsuit shoot in a white wig, an overwhelming number of friends and fans told me how much I reminded them of Christie and suggested her as a cosplay to me.
And with Dragoncon 2008 coming up, I thought it would be the only con where I'd fit in wearing such a skimpy costume haha... so, perfect timing to go for it.

I am really proud of how this costume turned out, given the circumstances. I was in the middle of moving, so most of this was sewn on the floor of my place as everything including tables and chairs was moved out already. I also boxed up all of my notions and sewing supplies so everything for this costume had to be purchased under time restraints, and then it was just me and my sewing machine + teflon foot. I got a great 4-way stretch vinyl and made all the straps and the bodysuit with my own patterns. I covered a random teal bra I found at Marshall's with the same vinyl and used three different sized sets of buckles and two sizes of studs to embellish the outfit. The gloves are my favorite - I patterned it out with the criss-cross straps, sewed everything together and added the D-rings also. Lastly I made the stretch vinyl garter straps, and attached fishnet fabric by hand sewing it to the according areas of the bodysuit. The fishnet stockings, studded wrist cuffs and earrings were purchased.

The photos were taken by Brian Boling [link]

Christie is such a cool mysterious character, I totally want to make another of her outfits. Maybe one of the ones safe enough to wear at all cons, not just Dragoncon lol.

First photos of a new costume I made for Ikkicon. I found this artwork piece by mangaka Carnelian and fell completely in love with the design!

It's Sheryl Nome from Macross Frontier, but as an adorable pirate girl! I happened to have very similar over the knee lace up boots, as well as 2 yards of deep purple Madonna velvet and black leather on hand, so I decided to push back my other cosplay plans to make this costume.

Construction notes: I started out by serging strips of magenta organza together, then hand ruffling the lengths and making a multi-layer ruffle skirt with them. I used the same organza to make the top and scalloped edged ruffle sleeves. I adorned the top and skirt with sequin trim because I thought it would be very Sheryl lol.
The captain's coat was fun and annoying to make. In hindsight I used three of the most difficult to work with fabrics on one garment, what was I thinking? The coat is velvet lined with two-tone taffeta, with all the black leather trim home made and carefully sewn on. I modified a pattern heavily and drafted parts of the coat on myself. It is reinforced with an extra layer of material inside, and boning.
The gold buttons have anchors on them which I thought was cute. I then made the ascot and garter belt, and covered a $5 Halloween felt pirate hat in black pleather left over from another costume. I also happened to have a nice beaded gold trim and purple and lavender feathers to embellish it with. The heart was kind of last minute put together and I may redo it in the near future. I did find some time to finally make Sheryl's microphone out of a mish mash of materials. Figuring out the braiding was interesting lol.

All in all, the costume came together in about 3 days of work and I am pretty happy with it! The colors are so cute together and I love my pirate hat. I am taking off the bows on the coat because they cover up all the arrow trim I spent so long making and stitching on. Definitely plan to wear it again soon, and do a location photoshoot!

Thank you to Brent LaVelle [link] for the studio shots!

I do a lot of photography for my friend Yaya, who designs, makes and recreates cotumes...I love her work!

The location turned out perfect with the interior 'jungle' look, white grid of the windows, and the light coming in through the glass...COmbined with her bright pink & white outfit, she seemed rather like an exotic bird. XD Strange, I know!

I really enjoyed the colors...as you can see, I'm a total color freak to the point of being kitchy... XD But I love it!

Sadly this is the only one I really liked out of the shoot...It fails as a good image in my mind because I managed to chop off her toes. Bad Meg! Oh well! I learned better for next time. :)

This image was taken at the Athens Botanical Gardens in the winter of 2002 using an Olympus digital camera...

OUTFIT: The costume & wings were designed & made by Yaya Han of [link]

DIGITAL: I used the 'curves' option to brighten the photo a little bit.

Chun Li - Street Fighter Cosplay LSCC 2014 @ So Say We All

Leaving these kinda till last here is my very sparse offering of Yaya Han pictures from London Super Comic Con. Her costumes are so well made, I think one of my few LSCC regrets is not taking any of her Baroness .. I possibly have a crush over her Baroness ... possibly xD

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.

I found the original photo of this manip. enchanting. I thought about it and I knew I wanted to mess with it. So I did! Didn't want to make it too abstract, so I just played with little things on it. Yaya has practically black eyes, so makeing them lighter was a challenge, but fun! Yaya is my favorite person to make manips. of, so whenever I see a picture of her that catches my eye, it's fun to play with it.

This is Yaya Han, [link] in a costume based on a design by Nene Thomas, [link] When I first saw this costume on Yaya I knew I would have to make a CG of it. The wings are just amazing, I'm in awe everytime I see them. Yaya is a total goddess with feathers. Again, like in 90% of my Photo Manips., the base pictures were taken by Kyle Johnsen of Cosplay.com.
