I fell in love with the design of the creepy Robo Geishas from Ghost in the shell. So I had to give a try at creating there faces....

Finally after 3 years I was able to do a photoshoot of my Ghost In Shell - Major Motoko Cosplay, I also used my digital art skills to edit the backgrounds and myself. Not something I normally do, but I felt very passionate about doing. And I'm very happy with how these look. Keep checking in, cause I have more coming in :) (also check my gallery I have 3 pics posted now)

I debuted my upgraded Cat Suit (Tim Burton/Batman Returns CatWoman) a few years back at Comicpalooza. (in which i had the wrong boots on due to forgetting the right ones, unfortunately it looked terrible, but at least I was comfortable).

Now i finally get the chance to wear it all again and put on my right boots, make my makeup more accurate, as well as wear my new claws I just finished!

This costume is very important to me, its one of my 1st cosplays and motivated me to start cosplay & Sewing. Since I was kid this was my dream costume to do. Yet I couldn't sew, and felt too young to be seen wearing it, thought Id look silly. So much time passes and I made it about 10 years ago out of spandex  ( Texas heat too hot for Pleather, and I wanted to remain part of the living).

It went through several transitions through the years...and then one day I just wanted more.
So I went in for the pleather.

Now the only thing left was my claws which I finally have completed!

Soon ill be doing a photoshoot in my new attire, I'm excited and can't wait to see & share!

Here are a few old shots of the transitions.

So I just received some faux fur and was wondering what you would suggest as a cosplay I could use it for?
