I am so fond of the Dead or Alive games lol!

As for Christie, well I never thought of cosplaying her actually, but after doing a swimsuit shoot in a white wig, an overwhelming number of friends and fans told me how much I reminded them of Christie and suggested her as a cosplay to me.
And with Dragoncon 2008 coming up, I thought it would be the only con where I'd fit in wearing such a skimpy costume haha... so, perfect timing to go for it.

I am really proud of how this costume turned out, given the circumstances. I was in the middle of moving, so most of this was sewn on the floor of my place as everything including tables and chairs was moved out already. I also boxed up all of my notions and sewing supplies so everything for this costume had to be purchased under time restraints, and then it was just me and my sewing machine + teflon foot. I got a great 4-way stretch vinyl and made all the straps and the bodysuit with my own patterns. I covered a random teal bra I found at Marshall's with the same vinyl and used three different sized sets of buckles and two sizes of studs to embellish the outfit. The gloves are my favorite - I patterned it out with the criss-cross straps, sewed everything together and added the D-rings also. Lastly I made the stretch vinyl garter straps, and attached fishnet fabric by hand sewing it to the according areas of the bodysuit. The fishnet stockings, studded wrist cuffs and earrings were purchased.

The photos were taken by Brian Boling [link]

Christie is such a cool mysterious character, I totally want to make another of her outfits. Maybe one of the ones safe enough to wear at all cons, not just Dragoncon lol.

Man, you really do look like Christie. You've got her facial structure. Now we just need a cocky smirk and you're golden. I think you'd look fantastic in her DOA5 outfit - especially with your penchant for tattoo-like designs. That one would be a little more con-friendly too. :)

Awesome work!
