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

Oh dear me! You look exactly like the actress who portrayed her! She was the highlight of that movie, for me (as well as Hugh Jackman, of course ;) ), so seeing you emulate her likeness, and in such stunning form, is awesome! Brilliant work with the detailing, they're still just as visible as your other masterpieces, even with this one being completely covered in black! The jacket with corset boning, and adamantium claws are my favourites pieces in particular; those CLAWS especially! How they've been moulded so that they fit the shape of each nail, adds further truth to the fact that you are up there amongst the elite costume designers.
