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. :)

I never thought I would see this pose and that outfit on a real person, and you wear it beautifully. You have made the dreams of a life-long gamer a reality, and for that, I salute you
