Battle Angel Annavere - I by yayacosplay Battle Angel Annavere - I by yayacosplay
*********** Yaya on Facebook [link] ***********
*********** Yaya on Twitter [link]


Image created for J. Corsentino's Time of The Faeries Project [link]

Photography by J. Corsentino
Photo Manipulation by J. Corsentino

Model - Yaya

Costume and wings created by Yaya

Hair by Michael Hall

Makeup by Yaya

Special Effects makeup by Eddie Inda


This was one of the most elaborate shoots I have been a part of. It took over 3 hours to get ready, with the hair design Michael came up with and Eddie's meticulous latex prosthetic work (the wounds have wires and metal bits sticking out of them)... J. Corsentino then shot with me for several hours, and based on the images from the studio shoot created a multitude of vivid, dark and post apocalyptic images for his visionary world.

Before someone goes off about it - yes I realize I have fanciful heels on that might not befit the warrior angel character. I put this costume together in a couple of days and literally ran out of time before I could get matching shoes. A friend of mine graciously let me borrow a pair of silver heels from her and the photographer liked the added sex appeal.
So why not! An all powerful battle angel should be allowed to look her best while destroying the world.

To be honest, it looks good. But I am thinking the authenticity would be better were you not wearing porn high heels and just a smattering of armor over ALL of your vitals..just sayin..

I saw "Battle Angel" and I got a flash

You should do a cosplay of Yoko/Gally/Alita from Gunnm/Gunnm:Last Order/Battle Angel Alita/Battle Angel Alita: Last Order

Actually if anything high heels make sense because when you kick someone you could poke their eye out or stab them. They may not be suitable for running in, but this character has wings and doesn't look like she needs to run.

Honestly, I think the shoes tie in with the armor. Yes, it would be nice to have greaves in a perfect situation but in a fix, those shoes came out perfect.

hehe. Very interesting that you put a disclaimer about the shoes in your comments. Now I really wanna see what you would have come up with if you had more time. I'm sure it would have been amazing. When I first saw this costume, the first image that popped into my head was from one of my favorite card from Magic the Gathering.

Your's is a little more cyber/tech than this one but the feeling is very much the same.

I'd love to see some closeups for these prosthetic wounds, they don't get enough love in this shot :)

Is there any chance that there will be close up pics?! This is such an incredible pic, but I think the detail isn't being as appreciated as it could be with larger images.
