Photo by Oscar Chang of [link]

Costume designed and made by me.

I really love how these photos turned out. I thought it would be cool to do a classic old film damsel in distress shot, with harsh shadows and ominous lighting.
In under a minute, Oscar rigged up this set up and it was perfect! I was all ready to shoot some Aliens!

THis is a bit of a cross between Boris Vallejo and Gil Elvgren in style both some of my favorite artists:)

how did you make the gun? weapons can be tricky to make for a costume, and right now I am in the process of making my first costume, staffs, swords and midevil weaponry id pretty easy to make but firearms seem to elude me.
ValkyriesFury Featured By Owner Jun 27, 2010
The gun? I think I saw that in a shop once. Target or Toys r us or something. It looks like it's been painted different colours though.

Hope I could help! :D

i see, I have experimenting with various things to make a costume, so far I have made a mask and a staff using clay and a tree branch. I seem to be very good at making things creepy and disturbing one of the mask is in my gallery the glutton mask. I was trying to make something else futuristic but I lack the knowledge to do so. my skills are limited to cardboard and paper mache as well as plaster. so far I have only constructed one costume in full, I honestly wish I could do more but I have reached the limit of my construction skills costume wise that is. I just wish I had the skills you have in making clothing, the ideas are easy for me to come buy i mearly lack the execution, anyways I look forward to showing off my costume to you at the san diego comic-con, it may not be enterly impressive but the mask and the helmet are impressive and creepy just so you know I made a necromancer and would love to hear your input being a pro at costume making.

Judging by the angle of your gaze and gun I guess no one stopped to think...THEY MIGHT BE GIANTS!


Great shots as usual and as a fan of women in spacegear you get nothing but :thumbsup: from me.

the background is also futuristic and neat :D
