Madame Mirage captivated me. One look at her classic beauty, dangerous curves, and ever-present air of mystery – illustrated to perfection by the talented Kenneth Rocafort – and the hook was set.
[Update 12/30/10] Just added a handful of new photos to the gallery thanks to LJinto! check them out!
Velocity – the resident speedster of the Cyberforce crew – was the first character I decided to debut at SDCC 2010. I already had her in mind during the convention the previous year, even before finding out about her timely return to comics via a solo book releasing at the show.
Update! Aphrodite IX 2.0 costume description and gallery added. Be sure to check it out below.
Aphrodite IX has been a favorite character of mine for a long time. What isn’t there to love? She is a hot android-assassin who forgets who she is after every mission. See? No baggage! Jokes aside, Aphrodite is one of many Top Cow babes who won my heart after I first set eyes on her. The fact that she doesn’t wear much was a plus, as it meant the costume wouldn’t be hard to make.
[Update: 2/12] I’ve added a second gallery with recent photos from Katsucon 2012! I polished up the costume a bit, and am estatic with the lovely snaps by Anna Fischer and LJinto. Check them out!
I put on Patience’s black boots and chaps yesterday for Minnesota’s FallCon convention, and it motivated me to get my butt in gear and officially post my costume write-up and photos. Read on for more details about how this costume came to be.
As a fan of Top Cow comics I tend to check out anything they publish. After hearing repeatedly about the Paul Dini books based off his Dinicartoon line, I decided to pick up Jingle Belle. My good friend Becky had already expressed interest in cosplaying as the main character, and once I read it I was psyched to find out that Jingle had a best friend who happened to be brunette!
