Lady Sif - Portraits by yayacosplay Lady Sif - Portraits by yayacosplay
*********** Yaya on Facebook [link]

Character: Lady Sif - Thor (Marvel)
Costume made by Yaya
Photography by Kevin Green
Makeup and model: Yaya

Kevin gave me photo CDs from all the cons this year so it was like an early Christmas of piccies! I really loved these portraits of Sif taken inside the Marriott at Dragoncon. The lighting was filtered through the large windows on the 10th floor, making it a nice photoshoot location admist a huge crowded convention. Also, if you squint, the background could pass for Asgard. ^_-

Costume construction notes:
I made this costume for San Diego Comic Con after gathering materials and reference for several months. I love badass warrior girls and the color red, so Sif was a no brainer! I really liked her character in the comic book as well, from the fact that she grew up with Thor and trained along side him, to their on and off romance over the years, and Sif's strong, loyal and courageous nature.
I used a mix of materials for the costume, from suede to leather to metallic 4-way stretch to fur and wood. I drafted patterns for all the pieces and made everything within about 3 - 4 days. The corset is steel boned, and it was fun to make arm and leg armor pieces. I also enjoyed beading the wig and making the adornments on the hips.

Dear Yaya Han - I've been studying Loki's magic books for my whole life knowing that this moment will eventually happen. May I possess you? Pretty please! :dygel:

I'll have to pack my costume up and take a trip to USA just to find Yaya on some big convention one day. >.> I'd stash the pics taken with her along with my AC/DC tickets and other godly relics.

Seriously, you can't deny the fact that she's the queen of cosplay. All the great costumes and her personality prove that.

i like NEED to know how (or who) your makeup gets done. because it just adds that last little bit of perfection to this. over all you're just amazing, thought you aught to know.
