New cosplay debut! Ayane from Ninja Gaiden Sigma 2
Costume made/modeled by Yaya Han
Photography by Paul Tien
Wig sponsored by Arda Wigs ([link]

A full body shot of the new Ayane costume I busted out for Fanime. I do mean busted out... this was made in 3 days because of my hectic convention travel schedule this year. I tried to be as detail oriented and anal about the construction of this costume as all my usual costumes, and the only way this got done in time was because I had most of the materials at home already, and thought ahead to get the shoes, wig, and Fuma Kodachi swords in time.
Cosplay often goes beyond just the time needed to craft, but also material scouting, waiting for ordered items to come in, and figuring out how to attach things. I got really lucky with Ayane, in that only the skirt had to be remade (twice lol) and everything else came together and fit on the first run.

In case you're not familiar with the character: [link]

As you can see, I made the costume more modest than the design, omitting the cut out in the front of the bodice, and adding a sheer layer in the skirt. I think it still reflects the character and represents the detailed game design. Don't ever be afraid to modify a costume if you don't feel comfortable wearing it. We cosplay for many reasons, the main one being love for a character. Replicating costumes 100% of only one facade of cosplay, it often is more challenging, fun and creative to translate a design from a rendered source to a working fitted garment, and it's perfectly ok to take artistic license. I see a lot of cosplays being more sexualized than their designs, and I think it's totally cool to modesty-fy a costume as well.

I like your design better than the actual design of the costume, makes Ayane look more modest.

I love your version of this costume :). I also love the message you've added with it, it is definitely ok to be modest if you don't feel comfortable wearing an outfit that's a bit overly skimpy. It is about the character, and sometimes I think we need to be reminded of that :).
