Character: Psylocke - Marvel’s X-Men
Costume made/modeled by Yaya
Photography by Anna Fisher
Psychic blade made by Volpin Props
Photo location: Otakon
This is a brand new Psylocke costume! I cosplayed Psylocke back in ‘06 but wanted to make a new version, more grounded in Reality. I drafted my own patterns for the bodysuit, arms/legs, boot covers etc, and sewed everything in a day utilizing two contrasting fabrics, heavy duty spandex & stretch pleather. The only piece I re-used from the old Psylocke costume is the sash.
My wig is sponsored by EpicCosplay!! It is incredibly thick, heat resistant, smooth and soft. You can see more of Epic Cosplay’s wig line at http://epiccosplay.com/!

You have no idea how difficult it was to find a blank wall in the shade for photos at SDCC, especially with a group of DC Comics characters. I find generally that trying to do photoshoots at huge crowded conventions is more frustrating than fun. You have to plan ahead, shoot either early or late in the day, and have handlers at the ready to get you through the crowds.
I try to do photoshoots for most of my costumes if there is time, buy sometimes it’s nice to get to shoot with far away friends like WindoftheStars!!!
Cosplay collage of nearly every costume I’ve made and worn in the past 12 some years. A lot of great memories and a long fulfilling journey this has been so far. Feel free to click through to my Deviantart for more thoughts on cosplaying.
