Dawn on stage by yayacosplay Dawn on stage by yayacosplay
*********** Yaya on Facebook [link] ***********
*********** Yaya on Twitter [link]


Thank you, Patcave [link] for putting up so many photos from the Dawn Look-a-like contest at Dragoncon! Here is my entry - "Birth of the Goddess". You can see my friends rolling the egg we made on stage and me getting out of it and doing a short performance. I was awarded Third Place!

For my full construction notes, click here: [link]

To abbreviate, I designed the costume based on Linsner's art style, and the theme. I wanted it to be white, to symbolize the purity of new birth. I made the costume from scratch and also the wings and the egg. Thank you again to the contest staff and everyone who helped me get around in this cumbersome costume.

[link] - 1st place winner picture

After seeing yours and reading it was only thrid I was really expecting something so epically amazing from first...

You so should have won first, you were just too epic they couldn't give you first.

Love the outfit and wings!!!

I -cannot- agree more. I mean her costume is ok... good even... but it is -pathetic- standing next to Yaya! I'm curious to see who got second if that was first and yaya managed to only net 3rd...

it just goes to show that blowing the judges still works >.>

I know that's really mean and cruel.... but -ANYONE WITH EYES- can see that Yaya's is better. Hell I'd bet a blind person would be able to tell her's is better... but I bet they'd have to feel her up for that... and who wouldn't pick yaya if they got to feel her up?

Whoa... if this is third, I'm really curious what second and first looked like.

And we got a good look at the egg prop here. It's beautiful, just as detailed as the costume!
