Photo by Oscar Chang of Divideby0.com [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!

More photos of this costume:

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.

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!

:lol:

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