Retro Space Girl Yaya - version 3 debut! by yayacosplay Retro Space Girl Yaya - version 3 debut! by yayacosplay
First official photo of my new Retro Space Girl costume!!!

Character concept and design by Yaya Han
Costume made by Yaya Han
Photographed by Brian Boling

I'm so happy with how version 3 of my Space Girl turned out! Granted, I spent way more time on the craftsmanship of this costume than the previous 2. 
The inspiration behind this character is undoubtedly Barbarella, and the entire 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've never revisited an original character or theme as often as my Retro Space Girl, to the point where she has become my logo for YayaHan.com!

Construction-wise:
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. 
The boots are the original pair I used for the 1st Space Girl costume back in 2006! For nostalgia's sake, I re-used them haha.

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. Styling big 60's hair on the morning you're trying to check out of a hotel is no fun, and the humidity/rain took down my volume soon after this shot. But still... I get to use mah own huurrrr!!!

More photos soon, and I look forward to adding elements to this costume. Trust me, I got lots of ideas and gadgets in mind!

Ok I may be the only one that thinks this, but this reminds me of a game called "Space Channel 5" by SEGA. The look of the outfit, the colors...
Other than that I love the outfit, totally looks like a 60's or 80's sci-fi classic :p

You're a beautiful woman and a talented artist.  I often don't like your photos though.  Don't misunderstand, you look great and so do the costumes.  I just wish your photos were wider (not tall) and in high resolution so that I could use them as wallpaper on a UHD display (4000 pixels wide or more would be nice).

In other words, I wish the resolution and aspect ratio of your photos were as great as you are a model and cosplayer.

I love the colors and design!

But if I have to be honest, it does look like it came from a sci-fy porno film from the 60's...

Are you hiding the negative comments? Or are they that offensive? I see a lot of hiddens and was curious because I had just heard your popularity tanked after that syfy show.
