Character: Amber - "Sucker Punch"
Costume made by - Yaya Han
Photography by Brian Boling
Model - Yaya Han

Thank you, Brian, for taking these shots at SDCC!

You can see the costume pretty well in these pics - I made it the same way they did it in the movie, which is by cutting up a Vietnam era pressure flight suit and altering it HEAVILY.
If you look at the images of the actual costume on display here: [link] On the right side of the hip there is a finished hole, through which an air hose is attached to the plane and on the inside of the flight suit there are rubber air bags sewn in that expand with air and compress the pilot's body parts so they won't pass out from all the flight maneuvers.
Brian was able to get his hands on such a flight suit for me and I spent hours seam ripping the inside air bags and the pressure tubes that followed the length of the arms, legs and back of the suit.
Then I chopped it in half and replaced the zipper, made the pants into chaps, lined them, and used the left over matching fabric to make the hat. I had to make my own pattern for the hat.
The gun/magazine holster and belt were the next to tackle, and I give many thanks to Kathy of GodSaveTheQueenFashions for helping me pick out the leathers and tools and showing me leather working techniques. I used a heavy veg tan leather hide and made my own pattern for the pieces, cut them out and punched stitching holes for hours. Then heavy duty snaps were added as well as D-rings. After making all the pieces, I hand dyed them black and shined them up. It took about a day and a half to make and assemble the whole get-up.
The gloves are neoprene and leather.
Last pieces to make were the panties, bra and choker, and thank God I found the right pleated trim. I altered a bra by adding the zipper and the trim, same with the panties. Add some fishnets and a lollipop and I was ready to kill zombie nazis!

I'll say that by the end of SDCC, I had eaten 6 lollipops and was pretty sick of them. Thinking of casting a fake lollipop, but then I'd have to put plastic in my mouth ugh.

Looking forward to more Sucker Punch timez with my ladies at Dragoncon!

Miss Han, if you need an alternative for a lollipop, get a friend to make one of lampworked glass. No plastic taste, and it'll won't rot your teeth.

Very, very well done. Literally the best cosplay representation of this character. You did a fantastic job on this and keep up the excellent work. Oh to have a model like you here in Kansas City...

Keep on rockin'!

I gotta admit, the aviation enthusiast in me cringed a bit at the description of the flight suit's alteration, but it is more than outweighed by how impressed I am at your handiwork. It is indistinguishable from the movie costume, near as I can tell. This is just outstanding.

Greetings,
You have a great costume and I like how the picture turned out. I was wondering if you were going to New York Comic Convention/ New York Anime Festival (NYCC/ NYAF) 2011? I managed to get booth 2721 and I would love to capture you in a 360 Degree pictorial and of course for free. You can even stop by and see some of me previous work.

For a split second I was sad I'm not going to Dragon*Con this year because Anna, Camille, Sara, etc. are doing Sucker Punch and I don't think they have a Rocket and I loooooove Rocket (about the only thing I liked about the movie, sadly) but I just followed your link and looked at Rocket's costume details and HELL NO I just changed my mind, lol! You make a great Amber, though, and I'm super impressed by the lengths you went to for accuracy.
