I had the incredible privilege to be invited to collaborate on three cosplay photoshoots with renowned visionary photographer Jay Tablante this year.

This is the result of the first shoot! Amber from Sucker Punch!

We started planning in the spring of 2011 and finally in October, days before NYCC, we shot together in 2stopsbrighter Studios, New York City.
Jay and his team, who flew in from Manila, were ultra professional to work with and my job was mainly focused on making the costume to my highest standards, and looking the part of Amber the day of.
Ara, an amazing makeup artist and hair stylist, helped me get the Amber hair just right.
Raffy is a great poser and art director and between him and Jay, they really made me push the poses. I was originally sitting on a stool and had to kick up my legs and hold the pose for as long as possible. Quite a work out for your stomach muscles lol.
While my work as the model was done after less than an hour for this cosplay shoot, the team worked hard on creating this incredible final image. Jay even went out to the Chino Airport in California to shoot the image of the airplane! I honestly don't know how they are able to turn a photo of me on a stool against a white background into this gorgeous retro war propaganda poster!
I couldn't be happier with Jay and his team's amazing work! Stay tuned for more faboo cosplay images from these guys!

not only does the make up look great and the pose perfect for the theme, and awesome shot, but alltogether in post production, photoshopped like that really does zack snyders film justice. it looks like the movie!
sorry to gush, but mission accomplished ;D pun intended
