Red Queen - Alice: Madness Returns by yayacosplay Red Queen - Alice: Madness Returns by yayacosplay

Waaaaaaah I'm so excited to share this gorgeous new photo with you!

Character: Red Queen - Alice: Madness Returns
Costume made/modeled by Yaya Han
Photography/Post-production: Darshelle Stevens…

This is my first time working with Darshelle, but I have admired her photography work for a while and I knew she has the artistic vision and impeccable technical skills to create a top-notch image. And she totally killed it! I really love the dark yet whimsical atmosphere of this image, and that she chose this specific pose and expression. It's just fabulous for the character and costume.

The outfit was made in March 2013, and I binge-crafted it in about a week. Looking back, it was a crazy short time frame to get this done. A lot of people ask me about the gold designs - I chose to use heat transfer iron on vinyl because I could create all the intricate designs I wanted, and the shiny gold finish would look great on stage.

I actually saw the episode of Heroes of Cosplay in which you created this marvelous cosplay. Aside from the crown falling the entirety of it was amazing. I never knew serious cosplay was so tedious. All of your cosplay are so amazing.

I loved this outfit and I was SO excited when "Heroes of Cosplay" aired where I lived!!~
I could finally show WHY I wanted to do cosplaying to my family and they finally understood why!
It wasn't just "Oh, she wants to play dress up" anymore, it was "HOLY HELL, she can make it somewhat a CAREER?!"
Because that IS what professional cosplaying is: It's a modeling gig that you can do and depending on how others view your outfit choice, your skit, and how much you portray a character, you could win it all or loose it all.
What I'm saying is this:
I love your skits, your outfits are AMAZING, and in all honesty, I thought you should of won(even though your crown fell off!~ BWTH, everyone has at least one mess-up each day, even the best aka YOU!~)
Juxness Featured By Owner Mar 4, 2014
