First official photo of my new Retro Space Girl costume!!!

Character concept and design by Yaya Han
Costume made by Yaya Han
Photographed by Brian Boling

I'm so happy with how version 3 of my Space Girl turned out! Granted, I spent way more time on the craftsmanship of this costume than the previous 2. 
The inspiration behind this character is undoubtedly Barbarella, and the entire fabulous retro sci-fi futura theme of the 60's. It's a whimsical pin-up, cheesecake, sexy yet innocent world, and if you know me, you know I LOVE all of these things!
I've never revisited an original character or theme as often as my Retro Space Girl, to the point where she has become my logo for YayaHan.com!

Construction-wise:
I used a metallic silver spandex (center panels), a silver pleather (side panels), a pink neoprene (trim), a pink spandex layered over the neoprene (inserts, puffs) and reflective pink band (constrating trims, belt). All together, 5 materials just for the outside of the jacket and bodysuit, which are lined as well.
Patterning and fit were really challenging, and I spent a few added up hours just seam ripping!
I went for a racing suit look this time, and made costume so it can be worn with or without the jacket. 
The boots are the original pair I used for the 1st Space Girl costume back in 2006! For nostalgia's sake, I re-used them haha.

Brian was awesome and made the jetpack for me, in 2 days! It does light up but we shot in between rain so I didn't turn them on.

My hair was colored by Rogue Hair Studio, and I also used the custom colored extensions from them. Styling big 60's hair on the morning you're trying to check out of a hotel is no fun, and the humidity/rain took down my volume soon after this shot. But still... I get to use mah own huurrrr!!!

More photos soon, and I look forward to adding elements to this costume. Trust me, I got lots of ideas and gadgets in mind!

GOTTA FIND OUT WHO KILLED MY DADDDDDDDD
found the perfect blue n white striped spandex, made a pair panties lined in plain white jersey, v fold elastic on the leg holes. Bra was a white bra from target that i covered in spandex by hand and it was very annoying but lmao i've done it for so many costumes at this point who even cares.

Athena - Borderlands the Pre-Sequel 

Costume made, modeled, and photographed by - Its Raining Neon 
It is quite possible I put my all into this costume, from voluntarily adding lights to the equipment (back of the shield lights and the hip pack with 3 different lighting setting), the hours of paint and dye work on the clothing to get it's tone shifts just right, to how the armor closures work i've never felt so 100%'ly bleed into a costume.
