Enyo: Goddess of War III by yayacosplay Enyo: Goddess of War III by yayacosplay
I'll start off by saying that this photoshoot took place 2 years ago (October 2008) and I did not release these photos until tonight because I wasn't sure if the public would understand what we were going for. Hence the watermark is still my old website lol.

Yes. I am very scantly clad. Yes. I am basically just wearing shreds of fabric and very well glued on jewelry. Yes. I am near exposed. Yes. They are boobs.

The reason I did this photoshoot was not to scandalize (although I'm sure that is a by-product effect), but to pay tribute to the amazing art styles of Heavy Metal [link] and High Fantasy in the 70's and 80's.

Good fantasy (art, book, film etc.) and sensual feminine forms have always gone hand in hand. I absolutely adore the work of Luis Royo [link] and have in the past saluted him with my Battle Angel [link] images [link] This time I wanted to create a theme around the Greek Goddess of War, Enyo [link] Terrible yet beautiful, bloodthirsty yet mesmerizing.

I created the outfit within a week, being inspired by Luis Royo [link] and John Carter's Princess of Mars [link] using light airy fabrics in creme and sage colors. I did a lot of fabric shredding and ripping, wove braids of fabrics and tied random pieces together. I spent way too much money on materials and time on making the headpieces and jewelry accessories. You can see a close-up of the headpieces here: [link]
Brian Boling created the gold collar out of plastic and I decorated it with chains and crystals.

As usual, I did my own makeup and styling.

Weapons were kindly loaned to us by friends.

I shot with my two most trusted photographer friends - Kevin Stewart and Brian Boling. You'll see a difference in their styles of photography as well as the fact that Brian shot digital, and Kevin shot on film. I love different qualities about each and was grateful to have both very talented and creative artists collaborating with me on this shoot.

This shot was by Kevin Stewart.

That's a heck of an intricate design, especially how the chains and metal offset the fragility of the rest of the outfit. Bravo!

Awesome! I love the Heavy Metal style! The movie (with a little help from Sammy Hagar) led to me getting into Thrash Metal after being a listener of Alternative music! Truly a triumphant photograph!

Going by that logic, if a straight man like myself tells you you're being creepy commenting like that. You should probably stop.

The lake is the perfect compliment to this character. I have to ask though, were you at all slightly embarrassed wearing this outfit? Regardless, it's beautifully done.

Heavy Metal? Now that you mention it, it does remind me of the cheesed out episode of South Park, except more awesome.
