Merry Christmas from Yaya and Jessica! by yayacosplay
Merry Christmas from Yaya and Jessica!
Merry Christmas, everyone! Season's Greetings, and Happy Holidays!

I'm so glad there was time this year to do a Christmas themed photoshoot! Thank you so much to Pixelette Photography for the adorable image!

Christmas Urd from Ah! My Goddess cosplayed by Yaya Han - I had to look everywhere for this old busted up costume!! Found it in my Storage unit! LOL Still fit and was kinda cute, I was shocked!

Santa Kitty Sonico from Super Sonico cosplayed by Jessica Nigri Fan Page - Jess designed the costume, which is soooo kawaii with the kitty hood and tiny caplet. We made it together in 24 hours! She got the premium grade velvet, which looks ridiculously gorgeous, but was a bitch to sew haha. We did a 1.5 circle skirt for extra fullness, and a boned bodice. Also, girl knows how to make gloves, fast!

I hope you have a wonderful day!

Nurse Sonico cosplay! by yayacosplay
Nurse Sonico cosplay!
I created this costume based on the collectible figure of Super Sonico! I absolutely loved the blue/pink color combination, and the design of the uniform dress. Just look at it, so kawaii!
The dress, belt and nurse hat are made from scratch, by me! I used a synthetic for the dress, and a cotton for the lining, as well as contrasting white pleather for all the trimming. The headphones were a lucky find on eBay, and my wig was sponsored by Purple Plum Inc.This also marks the first time I went shopping for lingerie items (garter belt and thigh highs) on Amazon O_o - very prompt shipping lol!

I recently got to do a photoshoot as Sonico with the incredibly talented Allison of Pixelette Photography! This is the first release image from the shoot! It is also available as a signed 8x12 glossy photo print!

Standing Watch - Dark Elf from Lineage 2
Costume of Dark Elf race from Lineage II made by Yaya Han

Spear and photo by the prolific Kamui Cosplay! This girl can make and do anything, I swear O_O

You can read detailed construction notes on this costume on my website: yayahan.com/portfolio/costumes/dark-elf-lineage-2

Progress photos of this costume can be viewed here:

The wig was sponsored by Epic Cosplay Wigs!! I cut and styled it!

The elf ears are my design, and my company makes and sells them here:
http://yayahan.bigcartel.com/product/fantasy-elf-ears-large

The makeup is Mehron creme based, and I sponged it on, then powdered and sealed it!

The dark elves in the Lineage world are crazy busty, so I used my trusty Victoria's Secret Bombshell bra! Every female cosplayer needs one!

It was lovely to see you at Comikaze... but I was so nervous to chat to you! (We were the FF6 Gals backstage at the cosplay contest) You've been a beacon of inspiration from back when you started out in cosplay, and have been a big push in my own personal understanding and nurturing of the hobby. I wish I could have said it in person, but maybe someday soon I will be able to express my thanks and say hello again! Cheers and all the best.

I love all the cosplays made and Yaya you are my Hero of cosplay! You're the reason I got into cosplay and I've started to share the hobby with friends. We are now like a little cosplay group of our own but sadly where we live one of the few cons near here is Sakura Con and Wizard World but both are over a 4 hour drive to either. Still I've started making cosplay and recently got a sewing machine to use cx anyways I just got inspired by you so thanks
