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.

Since I have been majorly supplying My Little Pony cosplayers all over the world this year with accessories to complete their costumes, it was a no-brainer to cosplay Rarity at some point myself. She is literally me in the pony-verse lol.

You can see group photos in my DA as well. Each girl created their costumes and I made the appropriate pony accessories for all of us.
Pony ears
Pony ears & Unicorns
Pony ears & wings
Wings only

Construction notes:
My Rarity dress was designed by me - inspired by the character and the show of course! I always thought of Rarity as the fashionista of the group, elegant with a sweet flair. I made a fully lined and boned halter dress and used a purple stretch velvet to make the trim and inserts. I handmade 3 tiers of ruffles from a sparkle organza by serging strips together, then hand pleating the ribbons into ruffles.
The back panel is the same purple velvet that my trim is made out of. It's my non-literal translation of a tail lol.
My cutie mark (3 diamond shapes) were rhinestone plate earrings taken apart and attached to the front of the dress. Rarity would definitely approve of blinged out diamond shapes :). I found a sheer French silk with a diamond pattern on it (Hello, cutie mark shape!) and made a pattern for a bolero, then sewed it together as a little cover over the dress. My wig was a great shade but I wish I had had the time to properly style it. It's a bit flat for my taste. Overall it was so much fun to dress up in a fun little costume with friends.

Photos by Kevin Green, thank you!

I made this costume for Equestria LA, the MLP convention in CA last weekend! The wig is the Ferrari in Mako Green from Arda Wigs, and the contacts were sponsored by CosLenses :iconcoslenses:!

The costume was completely made from scratch by me except for the ruffle shirt which I had already. However, most of the pieces on this costume were made for other cosplays in the past so while I did create the pieces, I didn't have to rush sew a lot for this event. Instead, I spent a lot of time making the horn and crown, as well as the lace bolero.
I also designed a new style of wings for Chrysalis, which turned out so nice, I'm super happy with them!

You can get the pony ears on my online cosplay accessories store, and in a few days the wings will also be available!

I had so much fun wearing this at Equestria LA! It was cool to experience a pony con for the first time and be able to dress up as a character from the show :)

Waaaaaaah I'm so excited to share this gorgeous new photo with you!

Character: Red Queen - Alice: Madness Returns
Costume made/modeled by Yaya Han
Photography/Post-production: Darshelle Stevens www.facebook.com/Darshelle.Ste…

This is my first time working with Darshelle, but I have admired her photography work for a while and I knew she has the artistic vision and impeccable technical skills to create a top-notch image. And she totally killed it! I really love the dark yet whimsical atmosphere of this image, and that she chose this specific pose and expression. It's just fabulous for the character and costume.

The outfit was made in March 2013, and I binge-crafted it in about a week. Looking back, it was a crazy short time frame to get this done. A lot of people ask me about the gold designs - I chose to use heat transfer iron on vinyl because I could create all the intricate designs I wanted, and the shiny gold finish would look great on stage.

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.

It's been a while since I posted the Yakuza Bodypaint images - tonight I remembered that I had these indoor shots after seeing the artwork that Pin Up artist Nicole Brune is working on based on this look of mine.

These were the first shot we took after completing the bodypaint. The quality of these indoor photos are low due to not having a proper studio set up, hence we went outside (hiding me nekkidness as much as possible from the public eeep!) for the really nice location photos (see below).

But you can see the paint job and colors really well in these pics!

About the project: In October 2009 I was painted up by Master Body Painter Nick Wolfe! We've been friends for years but never had the chance to collaborate before this bodypaint. 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.

To the left - Madame Caramelle, to the right - Josephina
I've mostly been doing work for my book lately, but at the side, I'm doing designs for a roleplaying games campaign I'm doing for my friends and me. We're just going to have tons of fun and play, the setting being London in the end of the nineteenth century and the game system being Call of Cthulhu.


I'm skipping the major monsters, though, this will be more like murder mystery stories with a supernatural tone to them. Unfortunately, I don't have much time to write the storyline nor to sketch the non-player characters, but I recently finished two of the female characters involved (the two prettiest ones, those are always the easiest to paint and design, aren't they?) Next, doing two of the male ones, and then two more female and two more male before I'm done with the character images for the campaign.


I'm wildly happy with the face on the left one, as I personally think it's the prettiest face I've ever painted. As far as pictures go, I suppose they're rather boring and without backgrounds, but look at them as what they are -- portraits of characters :]

Photo references used for the hand on Madame Caramelle, and for the frills and folds on Josephina's dress. Also, I studied a bunch of beautiful Asian girls to get the features right on Caramelle - also, her corset is based on one of my own corsets :]

Photographer: Pay Lyttle
Model: Me
Hair/Makeup: Me
Styling: Me (corset - Agent Provocateur, shirt underneath - BEBE, jeans - Bershka, jewelry - TopShop)
Location: British Museum, London

After shooting at the Grand Cosplay Ball last year with Pat Lyttle, he and I have been talking about doing a fashion shoot, so when I returned to London this time, we met up at the British Museum and took advantage of the stunning architecture within.

In a perfect world I would have wanted to shoot outdoors as I just adore the buildings, streets and alleys there. But it was absolutely freezing and we had to opt for an indoor location. I've visited the British Museum twice over 10 years ago and have always loved this museum. It is gigantic and houses some of the world's most precious artifacts.
We had to be semi-sneaky about our shoot, and it was a difficult one due to the insane amount of tourists and visitors present that day. All of these photos had to be snapped between long waits for the background to clear of people lol.

As usual, I did my hair/makeup and put together the outfit. Pat provided the lovely heels! I also wonder what he did to make my skin all glowing in these pics!

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.

Static pose costume shots taken (on an iPhone) at New Orleans Comic Con, where I debuted this costume this past weekend. A proper photoshoot is coming soon.

Character: Power Girl - Kotobukiya Bishojuo Statue version [link]
Costume made/modeled by Yaya Han, featuring:
~ custom pattern drafted bodysuit (sleeves follow design seams into front/side/back of bodysuit)
~gold metal rope & medallion
~ custom drafted seamless cape, serged & hemmed
~ metal powder cast custom made belt buckle & made-from-scratch belt
~ custom dyed & altered leather boots/gloves
~ self-styled wig
~ Boob Window content courtesy of Victoria's Secret Bombshell bra. Ladies - go out and buy one, you will thank me ♥

I was asked by :iconmostflogged: to be the Power Girl to her Supergirl and I thought - why not? Kara is a cool, tough character who doesn't hold punches, and her classic costume is actually very well designed for the 70's! I collected the materials over the summer and finally found time and an excuse to make the costume for New Orleans Comic Con. Can't wait to do a photoshoot with Jenni as Supergirl soon! <3

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 particular project of mine got off to a bit of a bumpy creative start a few months back. No harm, no foul. Sometimes a specific project just needs to wait till it finds it's own way. Joseph Corsentino and I had a chance to discuss it after the Pyre Elemental and he promptly and enthusiastically declared a fit with his Time of the Faeries universe.

Funny thing is, my very first Test Shoot with Joesph was for a Steam Punk fae with Melody Gore back in Sept. 2006. Course, we didn't know Steam Punk then - just had an already full formed fascination for all things Jules Verne... and clockwork.

Anyway, back to yesterday. This is more a prosthetic build than a body paint. I'm pretty much at the point where I've got to start pre-fabrication and molding as opposed to on-the-model builds.

Joseph actually did 2 photo shoots with the same model. The first was for an existing character line and we got to bust out the VERY vintage wardrobe I've inherited from my Dust-bowl era Texas branch of the family tree. Then, my ornate faberge trinket concept dovetailed perfectly into a pygmalianesque chapter. As always, I'm looking forward to what Joseph does with the character.

I'd called in face painter Donna Hofstee to assist and she was joined rather spontaneously (by me pleading) by ~StuftZombie, ^quietchildae and *RestemaIII who were catching up and hanging out.

The day unfolded quite wonderfully. ~Zathros fielded the usual technical and hosting duties. *RestemaIII got to talk vintage lighting. ^quietchildae got to bail me out on fabric draping:.... my cousin (and fellow ToF model) brought by a friend... and everyone got to talk enough Geek to make my head spin.

Yes. Henry Rollins IS Cable.

Production Notes:
Bald Cap
Gelatin prosthetics.
Traditional and Airbrush body paint

Glitter. Lots of Glitter.
Everywhere.

I'm sitting at the airport heading off to Japan and China for a month so this comment will be super short.

Costume is based on Mark Brooks' gorgeous Scarlet Witch statue for Sideshow Collectibles. I made my humble rendition for Megacon 2010. Photo by Carl Cunningham. Many more to come hopefully.

I lost a bit of weight after making the bodysuit so it fit weird at the show. Must fix for San Diego Comic Con!

Usually cosplayers only care about how their front works, especially for make-up. I can't believe she has a full-face....head...prosthetic. It looks just like it does in the game (well when my graphics card was functioning at least ^^; )

Tali - Mass Effect

So..... I can't even begin to describe how happy this photo makes me. I still can't believe that's me in the picture. I really feel like the luckiest girl for being able to work with such a talented photographer; Darrell Ardita (BGZ Studios).
I feel like all the work put into the costume really paid off with this shoot.
This costume was a lot of work and on a tight budget.
I'm really proud of this costume. I spent a lot of time patterning out the sleeves and painting all of the designs on the fabric.
I think this is my new favorite costume :heart:

Thank you so much, Darrell, for taking time to take photos, dealing with people passing by, and braving the cold!
Also, thank you to my friend, Steven, for letting me borrow your badass M5! (He made that!!)

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.
