I was recently painted up by Master Body Painter Nick Wolfe [link] We've been friends for years but never had the chance to collaborate before now. Nick suggested something Asian inspired and I blurted out "Yakuza tattoo!" and the idea for this theme was born!

Nick did the painting in 4 and a half hours, using Diamond FX paint. He looked up the kanjis for "Dragon Queen" and painted them as well.
For those who don't take the time to read my Profile info, yes I am the model in these images.
I did the face makeup and hair, inspired by traditional Japanese Geisha, and modernized. I also bought traditional Japanese hair pins, and the over kimono was made by me, originally for my XXXHolic cosplay. I love being able to re-use costume parts haha. The full gallery for this shoot is here on my website: [link]

What can I say about this shoot with Bryan? This is our first chance working together and the man is a magician with lighting. I have always wanted to do a night shoot with my Carmilla costume, cuz, duh, she is a Vampire. Getting ready took about 4 hours this time because I wanted to get all the details right about the makeup.
This shot sums up everything I love about cosplay, from the craftsmanship aspect to the accompanying makeup to the fun of getting in character. I did my best to hiss at the camera haha.

More photos coming soon! Thank you, Bryan, for the amazing experience and Matt and Monika for assisting with lighting and placing my skirts!

Photo by Anna Fisher, taken at Anime USA 2009. The costume is made by me, for NYAF's Yume Cosplay contest. Character - Carmilla from Vampire Hunter D : Bloodlust". I re-wore it at AUSA for sole photo purposes. My skit partner and I got dressed on the Sunday of the con and snuck off with three amazing photographers in tow to take pictures for a couple of hours. Why didn't we stick around during the con? I had a very hectic schedule all weekend, and so did Anna :iconbeautifully-twisted:, my Charlotte. It takes three hours (down from four, ha!) to get me into Carmilla, and on a crowded Friday or Saturday it would have been tough to do private photoshoots.

I love this shot by Anna, it sums up Carmilla's character at one glance. She will do anything to get a virgin's blood and preserve her youth!

This set was shot in a library inside a condo complex - because of the semi-public nature of the location I thought the outfit might be a tad risque, but Kevin managed through his high quality work to make this theme look sexy but not overly naughty. I really love some of the images and am really glad we were able to use this location!

costume/wings/egg made by me
construction info: [link]


This shoot has been planned since Dragoncon, we were just looking for the chance to push the giant egg into the woods lol.
We took advantage of a beautiful warm day in late October and set up the egg prop in between these awesome ivy vine overgrown trees in the North GA mountains. Realizing again how immobile I am in this costume *headdesk*, and how many bugs were flying around us O_o;, we did a fairly quick photoshoot in under an hour. I put on the horns at the last minute because I felt like my head was so bare. They were just stock from my store laying around.
I am very excited about the ivy on the trees as it matched the egg's decoration wonderfully. Got my skirt dirty tromping around in the dirt but it's well worth it.

Shoot date was January 2006

I made this costume just for fun. I grew up on reading Chinese myth novels, and am a big fan of Chinese and Hong Kong Martial Art movies and TV shows. The women always look so beautiful, feminine yet could kick ass in a second! And their outfits were always so glam.
This shoot was inspired by all of the above... I even tried to do my make up based on the movies I've seen.

I made this costume in March 2008 - as a long term CLAMP fan, I suppose it was only a matter of time before I cosplayed Yuuko XD. I loved this design specifically for the butterflies.

Construction:
I got a heavy black poly/wool blend for the kimono, and a beautiful burgundy silk for the lining and ruffles. After sewing the outer layer but before putting in the lining, I appliquéd about 14 or 15 butterfly shapes onto it. The pattern for the butterflies was just free drafted - I cut them out of a yellow fabric and after spending a few hours stitching down the edges neatly, I got to paint the details onto the appliqués for the next night and part of the morning lol. I remember watching a whole season of CSI while painting the butterflies, and it became quite the surreal experience. O_O
As the butterflies dried, I made many yards of ruffles and also did my own gold trim for the costume. Stitched it all together with the lining and a big part of the costume was done. I love the fabrics I scored because they are almost wrinkle free, no matter how much I shove the costume into a suitcase.
The waist cincher is made of a burgundy pleather and I plan on remaking it soon. The material was bought in a rush and is not very sturdy. The cincher has a fake lace up front.
Lastly I worked on the wig, which took some engineering. The main problem was balancing the weight of the extension loops on my head, but in the end it worked out great and I can bend over and sway my head without things shifting. The bat crown and hairpieces are made of styrene plastic that's been heat formed.

This image was shot by Tiger Lee for his Hot Pirate Babes 2009 calendar [link]
I was invited by Tiger to join the calendar as Month February, and we talked about the theme and decided on a Japanese Pirate. I made the costume and modeled it in his studio, then Tiger added the background and everything in post-production.

I love his work process and it was a pleasure to shoot with him. He is a true Professional. The calendar is available online at [link]

I read the Ranma 1/2 mangas when I was like 13 years old! This is and will always be one of my most loved series. Shampoo is my favorite and I wanted to cosplay her for ages. Finally my friends and I were able to organize a group at Anime Expo 2008 so I chose this cute red outfit to make, keeping the July heat in mind.

Reference for the costume [link]

I chose a red brocade for the main dress and lined it with a lavender poly blend. The butterfly is embroidered on, and the sash is made out of silk essence. The frog closures are fully functional. This was a super easy costume to put together and I had the most fun with the wig. I did totally burn my leg with hot glue while making the hair balls. :( I added some flowers to the wig since Shampoo often wears them in the series. The shoes and sword were bought.

The Mousse with me is Shaun, one of the coolest guys I know!

This costume was made in 2005, I wore it to Anime Expo, and again to CMJC, the big convention in Monterrey, Mexico, in March 2006. All these photos were taken by consplayers.com, thank you so much.

Construction notes: I have always loved creator Kosuke Fujishima's beautiful illustrations of Belldandy with the floating bow with sashes, delicate wings and fishtail dress, so I decided to combine my favorite elements into one outfit. I chose light pink instead of white because I didn't want my dress to end up looking too much like a wedding gown, and Belldandy is known to wear pink :P.
The dress has hand stitched pearls scattered all over the front, boning for support and laces in the back. White sheer layers accent the flare at it's bottom as well as the shoulders, with a matching massive bow and draping sashes in the back.
I also made some jewelry for this costume, such as the necklace and some bracelets that I forgot to wear >_< at the con.

To create Belldandy's signature hairstyle, I started off with a multi-toned wig and added an insane amount of hair extensions to it. To match the wig's beautiful streaks and colors, I chose about 4 differently colored extensions and blended them together, cutting and trimming here and there. I then sewed the various pieces into the wig, creating the long bangs and ponytail, finishing everything off with the sheer sashes and flowers.

As for the wings, I made them in a similar way as the "Midnight Wings" black pair, but sticking fairly closely to the signature AMG style angel wings. I also needed these to be smaller, lighter and thus easier to transport. They fold together for transport and are fairly bouncy and adjustable, and the dress laces right over them.

This costume is based on the "Witchblade" Series 2 Action Figure "Armor Sara Pezzini", sculpted by Clayburn Moore.
[link]
[link]
I've had both the red dress and black dress figures for years now but never thought to cosplay Witchblade until my friend Meagan VanBurkleo told me about the Witchblade through the Ages group she was putting together for San Diego Comic Con '09.
I had been swamped all year with work, up until the weekend before - Otakon - and didn't think I could get anything done for the group. But when Meagan told me I could borrow her boots/wig/gloves from her costumes, and I realized that I had 90% of all materials needed on hand, I decided to go for it.
So on Tuesday night of Comic Con week I started making the Witchblade glove and face pieces, with what I had laying around like gems, glue, paint, foam.... I stayed up till 7am, took a 3 hour nap, then ran out to buy the one thing I needed and kept working on the glove till dinner time when I had to start packing for my flight out to the con the next morning! I was so lucky to find an old red PVC dress I've had for years, altered the hell out of it by hemming it shorter and using the excess to make shoulder straps and the collar piece, and changing the cut of the dress.

At SDCC on Saturday I met up with the girls, and all 7 of us, posed for photos at the Top Cow booth for an hour. It was so much fun to have the different Bearers together in one place, and everyone at Top Cow were so nice and generous. We all got signed books by Marc Silvestri.

I will post group photos when we get them back, for now these are some quick shots Brian Boling snapped Saturday morning.

Ahhhhhhhh I finally finished!! I started this in November :P Unfortunately other projects and Christmas had diverted me from finishing it. I am extremely happy with how it turned out though. I probably spent the most time and care on this piece that I've ever put into my art. It's not 100% accurate to the reference, but better than I ever thought I was capable of.

With the black outline it kinda looks comic bookish so I made a simple background of dots like the old school comic books using colours from the reference background. Phew :phew: I think I'm going to take a break now!

I'm excited for the opportunity to design and make the costume for a villain in an upcoming Steampunk action adventure web series called "Archangel"! I'll share details about the project soon, this is truly just a sneak peek at it! 
The jacket was especially fun to make, and I used 3 different fabrics for the outer layer and silk for the lining. I also made the feather collar, steel boned Victorian cut corset, leather pants and armor pieces (Worbla!!) The tailoring was very important for this costume, and I wanted it to look authoritative yet still feminine.

Snow day!! Since I'm stuck at my house, I decided to share a photo of the newest costume I made!

Enira, the Banshee Queen from Lineage 2

Why I decided to make this costume:
As soon as I saw this character, I knew I had to make the costume. It was an instant obsession! I began collecting materials immediately, which is the key for me to turn any cosplay wish list item to actual craftsmanship project. I really really believe that half of the work on any costume is done through research, break down of materials and techniques, and the acquisition of every bit of material you may need.
I also knew early on that I wouldn't be tall enough for the proportions of Enira. There were too many details on her costume for it to fit on my damned short figure. So in a crazed moment I decided to buy a pair of stilts online and incorporate them into this costume. This one decision made Enira instantly into the most pain in the ass costume to make/transport/wear, out of all 270+ I have made.

How I made this costume:
Oh Goodness, this build felt like a battle all the way, mostly due the time limit I had to set for myself. I knew I had to get this costume done before my convention tour for 2014 started, because my travel schedule is about to get crazy and last through most of the year. I have the most blocks of time to do intense crafting between December and end of February, which is why often you'll see my most elaborate costumes come out in Spring, not Summer.  
I used to not have the luxury of choosing from a wide range of materials, so these days, I buy in bulk and I usually get back up options as well. Time is my biggest enemy, so being prepared is the most important weapon I can wield.

To keep this post from turning into a huge novel, I will post a detailed breakdown of construction on each piece when I add Enira to my website. For now, let's just summarize that every piece on this costume is made from scratch.
My wig is 2 Arda Wigs combined, which a foam and Worbla base. It's like a helmet lol! Steel boned corset, custom patterned sleeves with foam backing, a lot of Worbla used on various pieces, made and painted wings, 5 foot long ballgown skirt, tattered with a blow torch, spiderweb skirt is neoprene with Worbla spines, Fred the skeleton and my horns are foam with fast curing plastic brushed over and sealed… I'm sure I'm forgetting something…
All together, about 50 yards of fabric, 100 yards of trims, hundreds of feathers, 1.5 full sheets of Worbla, 14 days of non-stop crafting with 1 - 3 hours of sleep each night, and a very scared Yaya not knowing if she can even walk on stilts with all this weight on.

I have learned a lot of lessons over the years about how to plan out and make costumes, and it felt very out of my element to take on a project that I didn't feel confident in. There were many variables that could go wrong, and it was an interesting journey to make Enira in such a short amount of time. A big part of me is glad that even after 14 years, I still have a lot to learn and there are tons of projects out there that provide challenges for me. The whole point of being an artist is to keep growing and learning, and I appreciate every lesson.

I have to give a special shout out and Thank You to the following friends, who came over for an emergency day of help right before I left for New Orleans. Yashuntafun Cosplay, Twinklebat, Jessie and Rachel work in my office and saw that I was super overwhelmed one day, so they came over and helped with tedious bits such as tattering the skirt, making chain tassels, spray painting, gathering tulle, packing up the big pieces for shipping to New Orleans etc. Brian also helped with Fred the skeleton and getting me dressed each time since it was a 3 person job lol. A special Thank You also to Kevin Spooner for mixing an amazing track of music for me to walk out on stage to. I'm all about giving credit and I appreciate my friends' support in this project. Sometimes, a  costume is bigger than you O_O.

This was one of the most amazing photo shoot days... I shot with two photographer on the same day, from 10am to like 3am, and produced three of the best shots in my portfolio. It was everything from exciting, creative, exhausting, glamorous, painful and satisfying.
The shot above is by Dan Santoni, who is also responsible for the set. His lighting set up was insane - I stared into about 8 lights at the same time, it seemed.

I have had this Peacock costume idea for a long time before I saved enough money to buy the feathers and materials to make it in the summer of 2007.

I kept my eye out for any fabrics that could work with this theme and ended up going on a hunt in the LA fabric district for a two-toned taffeta. what I found was gorgeous, green on one side and purple on the other. In various light the fabric changed in the shades of green, cyan, blue and purple, matching the color scheme of a peacock eye feather perfectly.
I took some time sketching out silhouettes and where I wanted to used the feathers as embellishments. I ended up deciding sewing a custom patterned corset, a cropped jacket with wide sleeves and upstanding collar, and a fitted mermaid skirt that flared out at the knee. The skirt has a peacock tail attached to it in the back, in the folded up resting position. I went to a Nature Center to chase and photograph real life peacocks to gain the proper reference for how the feathers lay on the birds.
I used multiple kinds of peacock feathers for this costume - several hundreds of peacock tail feathers with eyes for my tail and throughout the outfit; a number of tail swords for the beaded belt and jacket collar; and multiple yards worth of thickly overlayed peacock herl for the fanned collar of my jacket and sleeves. Each eye feather was fitted with a green Swarowski crystal before attached as embellishments to the costume itself. I debated for a while what head-accessory to create, from a retro hat to crown to feather fan, and ended up sewing a tiny hat from a made-up pattern and adding feathers to it. My wig was an old wig that I restyled and curled... I hope to do something better in the future.

Shoot date October 26th 2008

I made a Heavy Metal/Luis Royo inspired fantasy costume for a river shoot with Kevin Stewart and Brian Boling. We were channeling the Greek War Goddess Enyo.
In Atlanta in late October it was already freezing and I braved waist deep water this skin bearing outfit lol.

I really like this portrait Brian snapped at the end... maybe I look so pissed because I was frozen and ready to change XD?

The collar was made by Brian also, while I hand crafted the accessories like the hair pieces and gauntlets.

I am posting photos from this set for the first time ever! Taken back in March 2007, the concept of this shoot is a tribute to the movie "Mad Max". I totally love the world of Mad Max, especially "Beyond The Thunder Dome"!

The costume was designed and created by me, between altering pieces from my wardrobe, making accessories like the shoulder pad, and throwing props on to my body last minute, like the gas mask.
The makeup is a scary but still glamorous look (I am wearing a white out contact in my right eye, but you can't see it that well in this shot). It's like, you're surviving in a desolate savage world, but still gotta look good. Lol.

This Friday we'll be off to Castlefest, celebrating our pagan, hippy, overall weirdness and with that goes a costume! This year I decided to be a sort of Dragon Huntress. The overskirt took about an entire day do get done. It's not really a skirt but more a sort of double belt with three flaps on it. I'm planning on using it more often so I guess the trinkets are just a start and Í'll be collecting more of them over time.

This is probably my favorite shot from the photoshoot I did with Judy Stephens :iconthedreamerworld: Amazing lighting and composition. Very va va voom.

The costume my latex version of Black Cat from Spiderman. For SDCC I added an underbust corset to the costume to help hold the zipper up and for extra stability in wearing the suit for a long time and during a photoshoot where I had to climb, sit, recline and do action poses. Latex in public always makes me nervous as it is rubber that can tear O_o;.

Merry Christmas, everyone! Season's Greetings, and Happy Holidays!

I'm so glad there was time this year to do a Christmas themed photoshoot! Thank you so much to Pixelette Photography for the adorable image!

Christmas Urd from Ah! My Goddess cosplayed by Yaya Han - I had to look everywhere for this old busted up costume!! Found it in my Storage unit! LOL Still fit and was kinda cute, I was shocked!

Santa Kitty Sonico from Super Sonico cosplayed by Jessica Nigri Fan Page - Jess designed the costume, which is soooo kawaii with the kitty hood and tiny caplet. We made it together in 24 hours! She got the premium grade velvet, which looks ridiculously gorgeous, but was a bitch to sew haha. We did a 1.5 circle skirt for extra fullness, and a boned bodice. Also, girl knows how to make gloves, fast!

I hope you have a wonderful day!

I created this costume based on the collectible figure of Super Sonico! I absolutely loved the blue/pink color combination, and the design of the uniform dress. Just look at it, so kawaii!
The dress, belt and nurse hat are made from scratch, by me! I used a synthetic for the dress, and a cotton for the lining, as well as contrasting white pleather for all the trimming. The headphones were a lucky find on eBay, and my wig was sponsored by Purple Plum Inc.This also marks the first time I went shopping for lingerie items (garter belt and thigh highs) on Amazon O_o - very prompt shipping lol!

I recently got to do a photoshoot as Sonico with the incredibly talented Allison of Pixelette Photography! This is the first release image from the shoot! It is also available as a signed 8x12 glossy photo print!

The wig was sponsored by Epic Cosplay Wigs!! I cut and styled it!

The elf ears are my design, and my company makes and sells them here:

The makeup is Mehron creme based, and I sponged it on, then powdered and sealed it!

The dark elves in the Lineage world are crazy busty, so I used my trusty Victoria's Secret Bombshell bra! Every female cosplayer needs one!

I made a new costume in time for Anime Expo, but didn't have time to take photos in it! So here is a preview until I can do a photoshoot!

Super Sonico Blue Nurse - cosplayed by Yaya Han

I'm pretty happy with how this costume turned out! It was a 2.5 day sewing project and just something fun and silly that I wanted to make.

- I try not to collect too many things since my costumes/supplies take up so much room in my house, but I do have a rather large sexy girl figure collection. I can't help it, I'm addicted! I started collecting Super Sonico figures about 2 years ago, and this blue nurse figure was the first one I got, in Akiba in Tokyo! After my 5th Sonico figure, the bug to cosplay her finally bit!

- In 15 years of cosplaying & nearly 300 charas later, I have yet to cosplay someone with light pink hair! Felicia from Darkstalkers & Sheryl Nome are the closest I ever got, and I once borrowed my friend Hanime's Fluttershy costume for a couple of hours. That's it! Never had a light pink haired cosplay of my own! It was beyond time...

- I chose the blue nurse costume because the colors are so pretty! That turquoise blue looks so fab with the pink hair! 

- I bought a fabric with a texture because it was the perfect color, and I thought some texture would make the costume look more like a uniform! The dress was heavily altered from the pattern I made for my Jasmin Synn jacket! I love it when I can reuse patterns. 
The dress is boned and fully lined! For any tailored uniform looks, I always try to install boning to help the fit, and lining is super important. Can't stress that enough! 
The white trim is all hand made, with an upholstery vinyl. I also used the same material to make the belt from scratch! I had the most fun making the nurse hat!

- My wig is sponsored by Purple Plum! http://www.purple-plum.com/
I cut and styled it!

- The contacts are from Pinky Paradise! http://www.pinkyparadise.com
- The awesome headphones were simply ordered from eBay! They are actual headphones and even light up! Seriously easiest part of the costume to procure lol! 

- Sonico-appropriate boobies courtesy of Victoria's Secret Bombshell bra! Same bra I use for Power Girl lol. I don't break it out often but for Sonico it was essential! 

Definitely hope to take proper photos with this costume, soon! It's super comfy, albeit not being able to hear very well with the headphones on, lol!

I'm excited to announce the release of my new 2015 Limited Edition calendar!!!

yayahan.bigcartel.com/product/…

I simply can't contain my excitement anymore, as the calendars are at the printers right now! 

This is my 3rd annual calendar, and I worked super hard on it between Heroes of Cosplay filming, traveling, cons, my comic book... Just... a lot has happened in 2014 already, and it was very important to me to keep up the production quality and elegant look of the 2015 calendar! 

This one is being printed on thicker paper, and of course all of the images are exclusive to the calendar, meaning you will not find them as prints anywhere. I pay all of my photographers, graphic designer, and printer, so this is really a self-produced project coming directly from me to you. Most of the photos in the calendar were shot specifically for it, too!

And the first 300 orders will receive a Bonus print of my Heartseeker Ashe cosplay FOR FREE! You guys bowled me over with Heartseeker print requests since I debuted the costume, so I wanted the first print to be a gift and Thank You for all the support you've given me!

And of course, as always, shipping within the USA is FREE, and I will also gladly ship anywhere in the world.
