I was super happy over the chance to wear Psylocke with my dear friend Hanime. She painstakingly made that entire Rogue costume, it is a piece of art! Even better that we got to shoot with Martin, one of my very favorite photographers.
Also, this is a brand new Psylocke costume! I cosplayed Psylocke back in '06 but wanted to make a new version, more grounded in Reality. I drafted my own patterns for the bodysuit, arms/legs, boot covers etc, and sewed everything in a day utilizing two contrasting fabrics, heavy duty spandex & stretch pleather. The only piece I re-used from the old Psylocke costume is the sash.
