Mirror's Edge - City, Ground level

My first ever cosplay as a female character! Up until now I've only cosplayed blokes, mostly different versions of Luffy from One Piece. But for OzComic-Con Perth last month, my sister Berpi was determined to help me achieve my goal to cosplay a chick at a con at least once in my life.  It's not that I didn't *want* to cosplay a chick, it's just that I could never find a female character that I actually resembled as far as facial features, etc. My siblings and I are part-Japanese, but out of the four of us I seem to have inherited most of the Japanese 'look' ... except I don't look like those cute Japanese music idols or school girls with the petite features.. everything about my face is just more... round... and boyish... -_-
So I have never felt comfortable to ever play one of those cute anime girls with big eyes, fair skin and lovely lips. 
But Faith from Mirror's Edge.. now, there was a female  character that I thought I could possibly pull off. 

So my sis decided to be Celeste, even though she had never played more than 20 minutes of the game (I ended up playing it again before the con and she watched to the end) and there we were. 
Cosplays were made completely by us, including both pairs of gloves (all Berpi 's hard work) , Faith's shoes (fakey toes!) and Faith's pants (used to be dark blue denim jeans from K-Mart. I bleached the heck out of them, then added pockets. More on that later). 

This photo was taken in the dying light of the second day of the con (very little editing has been done!) by P.Elizabeth Photography . Check out her work - she's an amazing photographer and her shots always have such depth and storytelling. (:

Also, check out our cosplay page 
The Wonky Pirates for more photos and shenanigans. :)
