Character - Baroness Ana DeCobray, G.I.Joe
Costume made/modeled by Yaya Han
Armor made by Pit Viper Studios
Photography by Benny Lee :iconbenny-lee:

This is a collaboration between Pit Viper Studios [link] and moi. I was approached by Len and Audrey several months ago with the idea of modeling a one-off set of Baroness armor for their prop studio as a way to promote their company and our mutual fandom love for G.I. Joe. I was honored to be considered! Since I had been planning on making Baroness at some point any way, it seemed like the perfect time to get to work.
Toby and Audrey sculpted the pieces, and Len, Kevin, John and the rest of the Pit Viper crew cast the amazing set of armor for me, made of fiberglass. It is surprisingly comfortable and sturdy to wear and I could move around easily. And it looks totally badass and protective!

I took on the responsibility to put the rest of the suit together. Looking at many many reference images of Anastasia, I decided to put my own spin on her signature bodysuit. My goal was for it to be more than just a spandex bodysuit, so I designed a two piece suit featuring seaming details and quilted sides down the arms and legs. The material is a rubber coated 4-way stretch spandex, which I chose because I wanted the gloss-coated armor to stand out from the matte-finish suit and contrast each other. I made a pattern for the bodysuit and sewed it from scratch. The wig is a pretty lace front that was sleek and not too long, since I didn't want to cover up the armor too much. The glasses were a surprising bitch to find lol. You can't walk into an Optic store and buy a set of rims, they'd have to do an exam and fit non-prescription lenses in. And I didn't want to have lens-less rims! So after much searching I got these at a Dollar Store.. in Montreal, Canada lol.

I think I just went through puberty again. I'm pretty sure it was because of the Baroness the first time, too.

you look wicked in the best possible way. Kudos to both you and your armorer because that costume is spot on how I remember the Baroness looking.

best Baroness cosplay I ever saw :O :D
Nightphoenix2 Featured By Owner Jun 24, 2013  Hobbyist General Artist
This has got to be the most sexiest pic I have ever seen of any woman. All the elements add up. This is dead on my kryptonite. She's got jet black beautiful waterfall flowing hair, fair beautiful skin with a dark poisonous lip stick that starts that Bel Biv Devoe song with a lushish thick lip kissssssss. Enticing eyes that are both friendly and sexy that says, "Yeah, you know you want me" like Janet did back in the day. A nice body with black and red that mingles evenly with a ssssnake on it. A gun so you know she can protect herself, and where to go when she needs it. The light and background are perfect. Eyeshadow matches the background, and a background and she's holding her glasses like she's got an intellectual wit about her. She reminds me of a Scorpio snake!!!! That's too enticing for me. This eye candy right here is addickting.

More than that; Yaya's decision to mix different reflectivities of black adds interest to the costume over what an all gloss or all semi-matte design would do.

I was falling in so I had to bail out.
Nightphoenix2 Featured By Owner Jun 24, 2013  Hobbyist General Artist

Now can you mimic her accent from the cartoon? That would make me melt.

Simply wicked!

You make a lovely Baroness. However I understand how you couldn't find those nice round rims that she uses in the comics. However I think those glasses make you are pretty dead on for the animated Baroness from the old cartoon. Here's some round rims by the way.

The rest of the costume is fantastic!
