The Tea Room Scene by yayacosplay The Tea Room Scene by yayacosplay
Photo by Elvis Thompson
Shoot date was January 2006

I made this costume just for fun. I grew up on reading Chinese myth novels, and am a big fan of Chinese and Hong Kong Martial Art movies and TV shows. The women always look so beautiful, feminine yet could kick ass in a second! And their outfits were always so glam.
This shoot was inspired by all of the above... I even tried to do my make up based on the movies I've seen.

I know what you mean, one of my favorite books is The Romance of the Three Kingdoms, and another is the Outlaws of the Marsh.

Very reminiscent of a movie called "Curse of the Golden Lotus." At least that's that I think it's called. It's been some years since I've seen it. Very nice though.
