Gamora photos are incoming!
It was a pain in the butt to wear her for almost 10 hours at #nycc, but I am so glad that I did! Thank you to @missionfortysix for scheduling a shoot with me, it’s always nice to meet new people and work with new photographers!
This is a very un-Yaya cosplay, but just like Victor Nikiforov, I want to continue to surprise my audience 😘
Costume made entire by me - I spent 4 weeks covered in sweat, foam, plastic, and glue to build this damn lobster armor suit from hundreds of individually patterned, cut, beveled and sanded pieces of foam, then covered the whole damn thing in flexible plastic. It was my first time using this technique, and a daunting challenge because of how slick and tight fitting the design is. Sewing the undersuit and gloves took me less than a day, but I agonized over the armor for weeks lol. I’ll post more construction into soon!
Wig: a Matilda from @ardawigs, which I cut heavily
Makeup: green base, contouring & gold markings were done by @mmmmmiya via airbrush, I did the beauty makeup over it.
2mm & 5mm foam from @cosplayshop.be
Epsilon Pro flexible plastic coating from @smoothon via @theengineerguy_atlanta
Undersuit made with scuba hex and jumbo stretch from @cosplayfabrics, available at @joann_stores

All around, this costume was entirely out of character for me, but that’s exactly what I wanted.
