Costume line up is being finalized, but you can of course expect to see me in my superhero alter ego's costume! On that note, Lion Forge's SDCC Exclusive is a Yaya Han T-shirt! Grab one and I will sign it for you!…

Merchandise wise, you can expect cool Yaya art from Lion Forge and Nicole, and I will also bring limited quantities of prints, and very limited quantities of my 2015 calendar.…

It's a busy weekend for sure, but let's make the best of it! We expect

Yaya Han
Artist | Professional | Artisan Crafts
United States
Yaya Han is a costume designer, model and cosplay entertainer with over a decade of experience. After discovering cosplay at Anime Expo in 1999, she quickly absorbed the heart and soul of costume design and creation. To this day Yaya has made close to 300 costumes in the genres of anime/manga, comic books, video games, sci-fi and her own original designs.
Over the years, Yaya has build a successful business in the cosplay community, creating a popular cosplay accessories line that is available online and at conventions, as well as her line of Yaya Han Brand merchandising. Her intricate and lavish creations have won awards and acclaim nationwide, and she has been invited to appear as a Guest, Panelist, Judge, Performer and Host to over 100 conventions and other events all over the world. Yaya's impact on the world of cosplay has been so great that she has been a Guest Judge on 2 seasons of TBS TV Network's "King of the Nerds" competition show, featured in a documentary about cosplay called "Cosplay - Crafting a Secret Identity", as well as is starring in the Syfy (Space) TV Network Docu-Series "Heroes of Cosplay".
But, no matter where Cosplay has taken her professionally, Yaya strives to stay true to what got her into this field originally - fun and creativity.
Through hard work, unmatched passion and infectious enthusiasm, Yaya has helped Cosplay gain respect and integrity as an artform in the fandom world and art communities, and her decade long campaign for creativity has helped raise Cosplay to the standards we know today. Everyday, Yaya continues to pave the path for the beloved art and lifestyle we know as Costume Play.

It is true but I remember hearing this that Yayahan said that if you don't have the body don't bother cosplaying as a true cosplay to have fun and for every one to get to get her like a big family, yet every one thinks different other ways

If you were going to compete in a cosplay competition then body type would play a role, but just cosplaying for the sake of fun can be done by anyone.

I'm new to cosplay and I want to do momotaros from kamen rider den-o. What would be the best way to make his costume?
REFLEX76 Featured By Owner Jul 2, 2014
I will do fan art (one character) for anyone who purchases my ninja book, Kari Thompson: Enter the Shadow ($10.87)… So you will get artwork and a book for under $15! Please send me a note for further details.  Thanks.

Your work is so professional.  You take time and pay attention to detail for every piece you do.  I don't work in that medium, but much respect to you!

The quality, time and care that goes into your costumes and make up make you my favorite cosplayer by far. You're also fairly professional about it too, you truly are one to admire : )

Nice to see you again on Heroes of Cosplay. Too bad the season is so short.

HAHAHA!!! OMG! ToxicXerces, you had made my day. Who would it thought that in the entire world, somebody would waste SO MUCH the time of  he's life, trying to make somebody that does not even know or care of your existence , feel bad about her self. Dude... really get a life xD! I also don't like 2 or 3 things about Yaya, but I also don't care about her life, because is not mine. I have a feeling that she live 1,000,000 times better than the 2 of us, so forget about it, idiot. Live your life.
