Got some good shots of my casual BMO!!! I prefer doing much more involved cosplays but gosh it was such a last minute idea! Well, I did at least have bubble with me ;u;  and I’m glad it came together in the end!!! Oh man, my wristbands lit up and junk but it was a little too bright outside to see x0

P.S. I’m trying to throw some BMO shade in that last pic…

Otachi - Dragon*con 2014

Made and modeled by me (FB)
Photography by Soulfire Studios

“Movement in the breach… Category 4…”

Aquarium night at Dragon*con was unbelievable. Otachi was fun to wear during the day, and the Pacific Rim meetup was amazing, but I swear once it got dark out it hit a whole other level of epic kaiju destruction awesome. I felt like I was freaking becoming Otachi, surrounded by all the nighttime marine biospheres - the lights looked sooo cool in the exhibits!! And of course any chance to shoot with Soulfire (a huge Pacific Rim fan) is going to produce incredible work. I feel like Otachi is emerging from the breach in these photos, and she’s about to destroy Hong Kong (or Atlanta). Do your worst, PPDC…

While I consider myself a pretty experienced sewer, I had absolutely never worked with craft foam outside of simple, teensy props. I’m writing up a big breakdown of exactly how I made the spinal column and tail, but for now I’ll just say it was a huge endeavor! There are 162 individual foam pieces in the spine/tail, and 32 LEDs. Phew! Now where’s a Gipsy Danger I can drag into the stratosphere??

More photos and breakdowns can be found here!

Kris Anka and Kevin Wada have been doing some awesome high-fashion mutant lady designs, which I’m trying to make a reality because they are just that fabulous. Right now, I’m doing Anka’s Illyana design, and pinnedtogether is doing Anka’s Kitty for Dragon*Con this year, and we may have a Jubilee. But I want more. ALL the fabulous X-ladies. So basically - come join us! Wada has more X-fashion under his x-men tag, and I’m totally open to original designs that fit the theme of high fashion/eveningwear. Place/time will be announced when I have one set, hopefully soon. Classy ladies in fancy dresses. You know you want to.

I’m also in search of a photographer because otherwise it’s… me and Andy switching off. Which is wrangle-able, but it’d be great to have someone a little more skilled than me - greyloch? cowbuttcrunchiess? Any chance of an hour of your time?

(Also, pinging kevinwada and kristaferanka for signal boosts)

Massive thanks to Brian of Templar Digital for taking photos of my Angel cosplay at DragonCon this past weekend. This was a 2 week project just before PAX East that I was quite proud of myself for completing in such a short time-frame. It’s cool to see it all come together and finally say “it is done!” :D

Angel cosplay by me.
