I REALLY love this fanart redesign version of the Wonder Woman costume by Lynne Yoshii, so much so I think I want to do it as a costume. How well is stuff like this accepted in the Cosplay community? You know with it not being canon at all or anything.
What do you think?

PSA & BOYCOTT REQUEST - please read

This is a Public Service Announcement for everyone I know in or around the Chicago area as well as cosplayers who have ever had their photos on the internet. Please BOYCOTT (do not but from or patronize in any way) Alternate Reality-Comicbooks. 3149 West 111th Street - Chicago, Il, 60655 - 773.881.4376

It has come to my attention that not only does this “business” operate a “Win or Fail” Cosplay album on their Facebook page— which by its very nature encourages people to insult, demean, or otherwise disparage the cosplayers and costumes in it (verging on out and out cyberbulling)—  but does so by reposting the cosplay photos without the permission of, or credit to, the original photographers OR the people who are in the photos.

When this fact was brought to their attention, by way of a couple of the cosplayers in the photos asking for the photos of them to be removed from this album, not only did this “business” not apologize and comply, but they defended themselves by suggesting that because they "found them on google”  that meant that the photos were essentially in the public domain.” This response is as arrogant as it is incorrect and only adds to the outrageousness of this entire situation. As has been said elsewhere, “If you have a picture up of someone and they express concerns, the appropriate thing to do is take it down and apologize.” this applies doubly so if you are operating as a business and not just a private individual!

This behavior is not only morally dubious and abhorrent, but it is also utterly unprofessional and I also feel the need to add that it’s legally dubious as well. So please, if you live, work-in, or visit the Chicago area BOYCOTT Alternate Reality-Comicbooks. We as fans and consumers need to tell businesses that this type of behavior is not cute, it’s not okay and it’s NOT ACCEPTABLE.

Other things you can do:

1. Please check the album in question for photos that you have taken or that you are in, and report those photos to Facebook. Album can be found here: http://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=1425586656

2. Please repost and/or reblog this in its entirety to get the word out to a wider audience.

3. MOST IMPORTANTLY WHATEVER ACTIONS YOU DECIDE TO TAKE PLEASE BE AS CIVIL AND WELL REASONED AS POSSIBLE. Going in half cocked and coming off like “crazy fans” will not be helpful.

Thank you.

Quick sneak peek at my costume latest WIP.

Hoping to get this one done by Free Comic Book Day!

OH MY GOOD GOD!! THIS IS SPECTACULAR!

I zoomed in to look for Black Lantern Dibnys. Don’t see them, unless that’s supposed to be Sue in the black dress, but I don’t think so. No Question either.
I did, however, just notice who’s behind Alan Scott.

hehehe, rebloged this already but, had to again, because that’s ME behind Alan Scott ;-)
Also that IS Sue in the black dress.
CORRECTION: It’s been brought to my attention that she might have actually been Earth 2 Lois.
I need to dig out some of my shot from this shoot to post here I think…

I thought that I would take a moment to share some of my Cosplays with the Tumblr, because I’m in that mood tonight.
We’ll start with Guy Gardner (with 2 different wigs):




WIG CHANGE!

More Cosplay photos tonight. This one was taken at the Lantern shoot. I am not sure which of our two official photographers took this shot, so if you were there and remember, please let me know so I can add the credit.
