With the awesome Chris Fields as Cap at Megacon! I’ll be back at my booth 919 right after I help craftsmanship judge the CICAF category at the anime costume contest! Should be around. 1:15pm!
I’m cosplaying my spirit animal today! #Rarity #MLP For photos, signatures, hoop bumps, cosplay gear and more, come to Megacon’s exhibit booth 919!
Enira, the Banshee Queen - #Lineage2, photo by @omg_dj_judy! #Costume made by #YayaHan.
Construction notes, summarized:
- Stilts! First time wearing them and incorporating them into a costume. I was terrified!
- My wig is 2 Arda Wigs combined, with a foam and Worbla base. I did a lot of random engineering, hand sewing and gluing to make this wig. It’s like a helmet lol!
- Steel boned corset, made with 3 different fabrics, and coutil lining
- Custom patterned sleeves with foam backing and a crap ton of trim
- Custom made and painted wings, break down for travel, Worbla spine
- 5 foot long ballgown skirt, tattered with a blow torch
- Spiderweb skirt is neoprene with Worbla spines (it was a bitch to make, travel with, and wear…)
- Fred the skeleton made with foam, with fast curing plastic brushed over and sealed, painted.
- Horns are also foam with fast curing plastic brushed over and sealed, they detach from the wig for travel
- I really enjoyed making all the jewelry pieces such as the headpiece. As always, I love detail work on costumes.
All together, about 50 yards of fabric, 100 yards of trims, hundreds of feathers, 1.5 full sheets of Worbla, 14 days of non-stop crafting with 1 - 3 hours of sleep each night, and a very scared Yaya not knowing if she can even walk on stilts with all this weight on.
I miss everyone at @LSComicon!!!! #lscc #londonsupercomiccon This convention has so much heart! You guys have stolen mine!
Got home from London to my brand spanking new booth banner!! This thing is huge O_O. Lovely graphic design by my friend Benni from Germany, I so love the photos he chose and the arrangement! Look for this banner at upcoming cons such as #Megacon, #ECCC, #MEFCC, #Wondercon, #C2E2 and more. #yayahan #cosplay #banner #squee
The only time you’ll see me dolled up for a plane ride is if I had to get dressed up for another occasion before the airport. Like today. London bound!!!
