Elektra - The Comic Book by yayacosplay Elektra - The Comic Book by yayacosplay

This easy quick spandex comic book costume was inspired by Greg Horn's beautiful artwork.
Construction-wise there is nothing much to report except that making the head band thing without any seams required some creative patterning.
My boot covers are chunky heeled instead of flat because I was actually able to keep things like my cellphone inside them! There was nowhere else on the costume to hold necessities and I would rather be inaccurate on my feet than say have an extra pouch at my waist XD.

The sais are fun to pose with.

Much thanks to Brian Boling for taking pictures of me at San Diego Comic Con 2008!

looking pretty good. but the Sai are way too large for you. the side-arms of the Sai should be as wide as your hand. not larger. and the should be reaching from your elbow to the tip of your index-finger.

I love the shape of your face it's so exactly how I see Elektra's face to be. I'm not usually a big Cosplay fan. I mean, when I'm at my booth at comic con, I do get a kick from the costumes but that's as far as it goes. You've made a convert of me.

"the sais are fun to pose with"

Sais are probably the greatest invention of man. Just holding them makes you feel somewhat more ninja

Even though she's supposed to be Greek, you, for the record, look more like her than Jennifer Garner ever did. Golf clap for Yaya =]
