2014 has not been a big year for movie designs, but in my free time, I like to create cosplay costumes. Here are a few status photos of my Ryuko Matoi costume from Otakon 2014. Uniform is a bottomweight cotton with satin ribbon, leather, satin and broadcloth details. Glove is made from vinyl, foam, and Sculpey lightweight clay. Scissor blade is pink insulation foam that I carved, sanded, gessoed, then painted. Wig by Arda Wigs, styled by me.

No Cost Cosplay props: In an effort to constantly update my old costumes, I made a proper chainsaw prop for my Ash costume. Made from an existing toy, laundry detergent container, worbla scraps, and paint. Here’s a few shots of it in action at Monster Mania horror convention last month. :)
Snow day cosplay! Female version of Auron from the video game Final Fantasy X, work in progress. Made from all my back stock of fabric from other clients’ costumes, old college fabric, and whatever I had around. More photos to come upon completion. :)
