Check out the full story of this shoot in a full featured video and blog!
Landon, Chris and Matt - thank you so much for your help! You guys are amazing and talented and helped make this happen!
Surprisingly, I have never shot a Black Cat cosplay.. ever. That was the striking motivation for this shoot since Katie approached me to do a shoot with her.
People have called her the Anne Hathaway look alike.. and I won't argue that for a second... and honestly, it has begun talk of a big project this year with Katie which is all a surprise
This shoot was pretty cool.. and quite easy. Why, you say? Because it is done in my basement/storage area of my condo. I didn't have to lug my gear to some place that needed a permit or a place where I couldn't control light.. It was perfect.
Katie was a blast to work with. We collaborated the shots together and her eye and style was very welcomed to the final images.
This was shot with 3 lights - all 3 are CTO gelled since the basement was cluttered with incandescent bulbs.
I was looking forward to shooting with Adam at NYCC... pretty sure you can see why!
Fabric shopping was the biggest battle for this costume, matching the blues in fabric was a big pain. I would find a fabric I like, move it to the cutting table next to another blue only to realize it was purple!
The dress is made from a two way stretch silk knit jersey. I made a custom pattern for the dress which has a halter style neckline and side slits up to my waist. The 'arm warmers' are made from a combination to dark blue suede and silk knit jersey. I added details of suede strapping, gold buckets and gold studs for more visual interest (inspired by the Ame-Comi statue).
My cape is a modified Simplicity (5794) cape pattern. My favorite fabric to use for capes is a matte satin, I love the weight and the slight shine it has. I heat sealed the bottom of the cape to allow for optimum cape movement.
My belt is custom made and resin cast by me. I use Castin Craft for my resin pieces, it stinks to high heaven and takes 3 hours to set... but the pieces come out flawless. The circular pieces are made using a per-existing mold whereas my raven center piece is custom sculpted, molded and cast by me. The belt is painted using Krylon gold metallic spray paint. All the cast belt pieces are mounded on a dark blue pleather belt made by me.

So pretty much, every picture that ~pireze took on this shoot is BADASS so why deny it by not uploading more pictures XD
And the famous last words that I uttered in my previous Steph submission "I'LL NEVER TOUCH PLEATHER AGAIN"... are currently being eaten since I made another pleather bodysuit a few months after this was completed, and I'm planning another next year lol
If everyone would love to do me a huge favor and visit this link here [link] and like the photo with either facebook or google+ I would GREATLY appreciate it! It is the photo I have entered into the Otaku Cosplay House contest! Thank you so much!
I told you I was going to spam you with a lot of Zatanna. It is all that I really have of photos of right now, until Jafax hits in a couple weeks!
Sorry for the lack of posting lately! So here is another Zatanna shot from Youmacon 2012! Still have A LOT of photos from this convention, particularly of Zatanna. So expect more to still pop up! Next I will hopefully be posting a photo with a special Gotham Siren. Any guesses who?

Hurrah! I'm back from GenkiCon in Denmark and an exhausting photoshooting weekend at Calssara's! The convention was a blast! I had so much fun there! It was the first convention I ever got invited to as a cosplay judge and it was amazing! Both the cosplay show and the costumes were great and I really enjoyed watching all the skits. I was also asked to give an interview for a Danish YouTube Channel! The interview will be up in a few weeks, I guess. Stay tuned!
The picture you can see above was taken by the amazing Ali Jehad who also took pictures of my Batgirl costume back at J-Pop-Con in November. I'm so happy we found time to take some pictures of my Robin costume although the schedule of the convention was rather right.
This is my favourite photo of the series. The tunic comes up over my hip in here, but hey, you move and the clothes you wear move with you, right? I also wish I had brushed my wig a bit more and had refreshed my make-up, but well, that's what you look like after an exhausting night of crimefighting, I guess. ;D
I really hope you like it! Constructive criticism appreciated!

I'm sorry! It's been a while since I uploaded something here, but university is still keeping me busy. In addition I've been busily working on costumes for Kapow! Comic Convention in London which takes place in about three weeks. I'm really excited about it already! Is anybody of you planning to attend Kapow! as well? I'd love to meet up with you!
About this picture itself there isn't much to say, I guess. As the majority of my Batgirl pictures it was taken during a shooting in October 2011. I really hope you like it!

Aah! I'm back with another picture of my Robin costume! I'm really sorry I'm so slow when it comes to replying to comments and messages at the moment, but preparations for Germany's biggest convention which will take place next week keep me busy! There are still so many things to do - so many parts of costumes to fix, wigs to style and props to make! I'm still confident I can make it though! And I'm looking really forward to three days of cosplaying and seeing many amazing people again!
I think I haven't menationed it so far, but I spent past weekend at Calssara's. We went to Schwetzingen and took pictures of some of our old costumes there. I wore a costume I finished back 2009 already, but which I had never worn so far. I won't tell what it is for now... I hope I can upload some pictures in the next days! Besides that I'll put on my costume schedule for Connichi and a few previews of my new costumes tomorrow.
And something else that needs to be said once again THANK YOU SO MUCH for your lovely comments, favourites and support, guys! I gained so many new watchers in the past days - I have no words! You guys are amazing! Honestly: Thank you! I hope the work I upload won't disappoint you!
