This was the last photo we took at 3am, after 4 hours of photo shooting. I only realized the next day that this photo's posing resembled the official Arkham City promo artwork for Catwoman. Bryan did some post-processing to give the photo a similar treatment as the promo art and this is the result! I am so thrilled over this image! As a cosplayer, I enjoy the challenge of imitating a fantastical fictional character, and photographs like this reflects the hard work I put into the costume and my love for the character, as well as the photographer's finesse. I couldn't ask for more joy in Cosplay.

Character: Catwoman from Arkham City (video game)
Costume made by: Yaya
Model: Yaya
Photography: Bryan Humphrey

How I made this:
This costume was made in 50 hours, but only takes 5 minutes to put on lol. To match the hexagon fabric in the video game, I had the pattern designed by my friend Jinyo and printed up at Fabric On Demand. The secondary fabric is a rubber coated spandex.
Cathy of :icongstqfashions: saved me hours of work by graciously letting me base my bodysuit off of the pattern she had made already for this same costume for a customer. I had to redesign most pieces of the pattern to fit my bodyshape and height, but it was nice to not have to make a full mock-up from scratch, and with my tight work schedule, I appreciated every second of time saved.
I sewed the costume entirely myself, as usual, making sure to triple-stitch the seams (100+ of them) and also top stitch all of them. I also made the matching accessories such as gloves/hood/ears/sculpted metal bits/altered boots etc.
I re-used the goggles from my other Catwoman costume because I kind of hate the design of the Arkham City goggles, and I already made perfectly usable Catwoman goggles before. :)

 The best of all Bryan Humphrey's Photographs. Love the way the metal on the gloves catches the light and the one touch of color in the goggles. That suit looks so good on you you really deserve your own TV series.

Wow, great work there, you're indeed a true cosplayer :D! Love it, especially the... claws and red tinted goggles :D!
Do you know any male cosplayers, a place where you can find inspiration or a forum where you can share and get feedback to a cosplay project ^_^? Because I'm planning on cosplaying this coming month, but can't seem to find much in the way of inspiration or how to handmake a costume.

Can I just say that this cos looks fucking amazing?! Like, if it weren't for the fact that your page is mostly -if not entirely?- cosplays, I'd think it was the real thing. It is bad-fucking-ass. I am blown away right now, hot damn.
