Character: Psylocke - Marvel's X-Men
Costume made/modeled by Yaya
Photography by Chris Gomez
Photo location: New Orleans
This is a brand new Psylocke costume! I cosplayed Psylocke back in '06 but wanted to make a new version, more grounded in Reality. I drafted my own patterns for the bodysuit, arms/legs, boot covers etc, and sewed everything in a day utilizing two contrasting fabrics, heavy duty spandex & stretch pleather. The only piece I re-used from the old Psylocke costume is the sash.
We also wanted to approach the photo with a more realistic flair, which is why I just used my own hair up in a top knot. The background was a large carpet which Loretta and Brian held up for us while I sat on it. Chris found a Katana for us as well!
