costume/wings/egg made by me
construction info: [link]

This shoot has been planned since Dragoncon, we were just looking for the chance to push the giant egg into the woods lol.
We took advantage of a beautiful warm day in late October and set up the egg prop in between these awesome ivy vine overgrown trees in the North GA mountains. Realizing again how immobile I am in this costume *headdesk*, and how many bugs were flying around us O_o;, we did a fairly quick photoshoot in under an hour. I put on the horns at the last minute because I felt like my head was so bare. They were just stock from my store laying around.
I am very excited about the ivy on the trees as it matched the egg's decoration wonderfully. Got my skirt dirty tromping around in the dirt but it's well worth it.

Hi there,

I'm interested in using this image as a background for a panel in a PowerPoint presentation for my school's Japanese Pop Culture club.
I am more than willing to have the link to this page or to your account to show at the bottom and give all rights to you.

I merely needed to ask your permission before use.

That said, might I barrow this for a background giving I show your ownership?

Thank you for your time and consideration.

Do you ever worry about some Victoria Secret models starting a fight with you? Not that high heels would work out there, but I guess thats what the wings are for.

Wow! I was going to comment on the huge ass rock on the back but you say it is an egg and you made it!

Exquisite! You never fail to amaze. The venues you choose are perfect and the detail of your costumes are unparalleled. I love it.
Randa960 Featured By Owner Nov 10, 2009
Love it! The only question I have, is, if the Goddess has just been hatched, shouldn't the egg be broken open?? The egg is still pretty cool though...
freakgirlXD Featured By Owner Nov 10, 2009
This is one of my favorite shoots of yours now. (did that make sense?)

It is good to see that the lady of the morn is still alive and the enchanting is running wild but I also agree the horns were just a tad too much. Dawn has always danced on the line between the saint and the sinner and it's a small surprise to see her adornedd so.

Kebarzivo Featured By Owner Nov 9, 2009
Again, a great work!
alt-ctrl-pwn Featured By Owner Nov 9, 2009
Mkay'. Im not going to be a total arse kisser about this, like everyone else.
Yes, the wings are nice. But i must say the dress is very revealing if you are going for the goddess like look. Or was that just fan service? The egg looks very much like it was an oversized prop, Which it is. But alot more detail could of been added. especially alot more texture.

A comment about the horns, your hair looked nice as it was, and adding horns over complicated the picture.

You used alot of props, which kind of distracts the main focal point of the image. Which i am confused about. The obvious choice would be you, but the egg and the scenery is so big i am wondering what you was aiming for.

I would be happy to answer any feedback to my comment.

Where did you get feathers that long from? o.o
rudeturk Featured By Owner Nov 9, 2009
Great shot, I think the egg and you fit in so very well in the woods there.

Something other then the horns does look different to the dragoncon too.

P.S. Still think you should have won the contest. :D

This is really great!!! <3 it soo much!!
I go to D*con as well, I dont cosplay, but I LOVE to go and check out everyone's work on their costumes.
Ellaytche Featured By Owner Nov 9, 2009
That's gorgeous! Caught my eye instantly :)

Personally, I think it would have worked beautifully without the horns, but perhaps that is just my own perception of little devil horns not quite going hand-in-hand with things like the colour white, goddesses, and wings... *shrugs* But like I said, that's just a personal opinion and everyone is different... thankfully so, or the world would be a boring place!

Once again, great work!

Gorgeous costume. And I love the setting. The egg really looks like it should be there!

And I love the effect of the white on such a colourful background. It makes it (and you) stand out all the more.
Lady-Gray-Wolf Featured By Owner Nov 8, 2009
One of the best yet I think...the sun makes the wings glow beautifully
