Cutey Honey cosplay
Room for one more…
Funny DragonCon story time! It was SUPER hot out, and I was waiting in line for a panel dressed as Selene. Being a vampire… well… I really needed to stay in the shade, which I’m sure you understand. ^_~ Sadly, there was hardly any shade to be found. But we did find this tiny corner, just big enough for me to hide. So I stayed in the corner, and people seemed to get a good laugh out of my vampire-self. :)
Our next featured girl is…
[Characters:] Catwoman, King (King of Fighters), Teacher!Storm (X-men Comics) Tiana - wearing Naveen’s clothes (Disney)
[Powers She Represents:] Women of Color
[What This Project Meant To Her:] As I’m sure most everyone knows, most cosplay projects like this consists of nothing but thin, white cosplayers (with a smattering of Japanese ones).
I’m honored to not only have been invited, but to participate in a cosplay project that celebrates the diversity of women. I want nerds of color, especially female-identified ones, to know that you can cosplay and you are valid.

A PSA for anyone looking to buy costumes/props (or, really, pretty much anything, especially custom) online: PLEASE make sure the seller is legit.
This is a message a fan of mine received yesterday, who’s looking to commission someone for a Captain Marvel costume. Thankfully, she knew something was fishy before continuing forward with a transaction, and approached me about it. However, I’ve heard dozens of unfortunate horror stories of people who have given money to a seller, expecting a beautiful product, only to be swindled and be out of money, or receive an inferior product.
A legit seller should have a portfolio showing off what they have created. In a time where you can image search (http://tineye.com/) to find the origin of a photo, you should be able to find the owner of the image, or the person wearing the costume, to ask if the seller is legit AND if they were pleased with the interaction. Or, you could ask the seller to give some reference testimonials. One of these things should happen before you lay down a single penny, or you could just be waving goodbye to your hard-earned cash. Once you know the seller is legit, be sure to keep file of EVERYTHING in writing, just in case.
The Replica Prop Forum and the Superhero Costuming Forum also have threads of Blacklisted ‘sellers’, so please also check that out before making a transaction.
Since it bears repeating: I MAKE ALL MY OWN COSTUMES. If I don’t make an item (typically cowls), I will say so in the pic description and link to the person who did make the item. I have been making costumes for 12 years for theater, stage, and cosplay; this is my passion, my life, and my business. I will not tolerate people using my images to scam other people.
That said, yes, I do take commissions. However, my schedule is currently full. I will be re-opening commissions after NYCC, so be on the lookout, if you’re interested!
(NOTE: I am NOT looking for this man to be lynched. Please DO NOT harass him. I am ONLY leaving his name on here so people know to avoid him.)
What a class A jerk!
