Check out the Limited Edition Yaya Han 2013 Cosplay Calendar

Here is the big announcement! I am releasing a Limited Edition 2013 cosplay calendar! Pre-order yours now!
Calendars will ship Mid July 2012. Domestic purchases will receive FREE SHIPPING!

For the past few months I have been hard at work with designer David Terres and photographers such as Anna Fisher and Paul Tien, to produce this 12 month collection of my favorite and best costumes. Here is the 1st teaser image, featuring my brand new Art Nouveau Chun Li cosplay (designed by :iconrazvan-sedekiah:), shot by Paul Tien. I'll be releasing more teasers this month so check back for more! At the end of the month I will release the back cover image, with even more teasers of each of the month images.

This also happens to be the first photo on DA of the Chun Li costume I made.
I absolutely loved the design by :iconrazvan-sedekiah: and thought it was a great stylish translation of an Iconic character. I created the full costume, using luxurious fabrics such as dupioni silk and silk taffeta. All the trims and swirls are embroidered on, free hand. I had a lot of fun making the charms, hair buns and spike wristlets. I read the spikes in the design artwork as ivory or marble instead of metal, and in keeping with the turn of the century art nouveau style, my spikes are an opalescent ivory color. Some people remarked that it looks like I'm not wearing underwear - well, I am wearing 3 pairs of tights so I am decent lol. Again, it's to follow the art design accurately.

To address the "photoshopping" question - I did not shoop this image - rather, a soft filter was applied to it for the creation of the teaser promo for the calendar. I'm not sure if my photographer or designer did it but it was to get rid of some of the noise in the background. I know everyone has an opinion when it comes to images uploaded in the public, but to me there is a difference between posting a regular cosplay photo and a stylized advertising image for a purpose such as promoting the calendar. I understand I can't please everyone, and I don't set out to. Thank you to those who left very kind comments on this image. I worked hard on the costume and appreciate it.

I'll post more images as I receive them, but the one in the calendar will only be available for viewing there.
