X Men 2 - Lady Deathstrike by yayacosplay X Men 2 - Lady Deathstrike by yayacosplay

Finally I have good studio shots of this costume after making it 5 and a half years ago!

I love Marvel and X Men, and the 2nd live action movie was my favorite out of the bunch. Plus I totally dig Kelly Hu's outfit, especially the black jacket/corset hybrid and the adamantium claws.

I made the jacket, which was interesting to say the least, what with the leather ribbing and quilting and full grommet lace back. Brian of BountyHardware.com [link] made the adamantium claws for me, they attach straight to my fingers and are sized to each of my nails.

I also finally thought to wear contacts for this shoot, oii! Makes so much of a difference in the creepy factor.
You can see more info and photos of this costume on my website: [link]

WOW :wow: When I first saw this, I honestly thought that you were the original actress!:D:D

I am truly impressed by this cosplay :clap:

...Would you mind if I did a portrait of this pic in particular in the future :?

The credit would go to you, of course ;)

But still, I understand if you're not comfortable with it :)
