Retro Space Girl Yaya - original design by yayacosplay Retro Space Girl Yaya - original design by yayacosplay
New photo of Retro Space Girl!

Character concept, design and creation of the costume by Yaya Han
Photographed by Brian Boling

Inspiration: 
The Retro Sci-Fi era of the 50's - 70's, Retro Futurism and Sci-Fi Pin Up!

Through posting photos, I realized that many of you are not familiar with this theme, so here are some helpful links!

The definition of Retro Futurism on Wikipedia:
en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Retro-futurism

Classic Retro Sci-Fi movie "Barbarella featuring Jane Fonda, 1968:

An awesome Pinterest Board with Retro Sci-Fi Pin Up! Images like these truly made me fall in love with the world of Retro Futurism! 
www.pinterest.com/thementalkavity/science-fiction-future-retro/

Star Trek: The Original Series - TOS came at the tail end of the Retro Sci-Fi era! Just check out this compilation of costumes from the TV Show:
io9.com/5969957/weirdest-and-sexiest-costumes-from-the-original-star-trek/

How I made this costume:
This is version 3 of the same character, first created by me back in 2006! I've always wanted to pay homage to the tongue-n-cheek, fabulous retro sci-fi futura theme of the 60's. It's a whimsical pin-up, cheesecake, sexy yet innocent world, and if you know me, you know I LOVE all of these things!
I used a metallic silver spandex (center panels), a silver pleather (side panels), a pink neoprene (trim), a pink spandex layered over the neoprene (inserts, puffs) and reflective pink band (constrating trims, belt). All together, 5 materials just for the outside of the jacket and bodysuit, which are lined as well.
Patterning and fit were really challenging, and I spent a few added up hours just seam ripping! 
I went for a racing suit look this time, and made costume so it can be worn with or without the jacket. 

Brian was awesome and made the jetpack for me, in 2 days! It does light up but we shot in between rain so I didn't turn them on.

My hair was colored by Rogue Hair Studio, and I also used the custom colored extensions from them!

The Ray-pistol gets lost in this photo, which is a shame 'cause it's so well-designed and cute.

If you don't think these are fake you must not have seen real breasts before.
