Tracy vs Jason!

Costume

Despite being a realitvely simple costume (that is, no armor), my reinterpretation of the original and filmation Ghostbusters Ape as a modern Columbia Ghostbuster quickly became one of my favorite suits and ended up showing up a LOT.

Sadly, there’s no way this ends well…

Slimer vs Captain Marvel!

Costume

A large full body suit made mostly of expanding foam, Slimer is an old favorite. You can almost see how Captain Marvel might mistake him for a Skrull….

Tracy is one of two Ghostbuster suits I own, the other is my full body Slimer, and I love pairing the two up in pics!

Tracy as Iron Man!

Costume

Tracy learned his lesson from his tussle with Iron Man on Asguard, and went to build his own armor!

Voltron Redux part two

Costume

I went and upgraded my Voltron costume a while back adding lights and details and even the sword to it, and it was enough to make fall back in love with the suit!

Star Lord

CostumeWhile I was doing a Labor Day event, I got to jump in the back of a SWAT truck, and I can’t help but think it looks really like a cockpit for a spaceship….

Star Lord under attack

Costume

Star Lord from Guardians of the Galaxy has become one of my go-to costumes for comfortable cosplay. Simple stuff, muscle pants, t-shirt and the jacket with baby Groot on my shoulder. (Rocket Racoon puppet optional)

It’s not always about compositing flashy backgrounds, sometimes the most effective thing to do is just edit out a few flaws and add a touch of lighting.. Here’s a before and after pic!

Doc Ock!

I made this Spidy background a while back – it’s about time I got my Doc Ock in it!

Jor-El on Krypton

I really likeĀ  this version of Krypton, very red and yet still a bit of Donner influence. And the photographer got the lighting JUST right….

Hellraiser part two

 

CostumeI wanted to try something diffrent with Pinhead – in particular, It would be nice to reduce that three hour makeup with some shortcuts. There’s a scene in Hellbound where Pinhead and the Female are dressed as surgeons. My mother brought me home a hospital gown from one of her visits to the doctor and I took it from there.

My normal model magic pins had been broken and lost – something i didn’t discover in time and the few I put on my face were more of the Q tips I use on the head. They stayed well enough since there weren’t many of them, but the surgeon mask helped hold that bottom row in place.

Wasteland welcomed pinhead.

Iron Sapphire redux

Costume

Out of nowhere, Maddie asked me to redo her Iron Sapphire armor! I’ve always been leased with it, but we had to completely remake the midplate expand the legs because she’s grown so much since the last time she wore it!

Iron Man vs. Star Wars

I thought the Bones suit would go well with the Star Wars people… but the lens flares! Wow!

31531078_10216034297281400_3729457215652757504_n

(I’m also so proud that the visor finally goes up and down!)
