Oh hey, that’s me :) And I have to say the butt shot was a total joke between myself and the photographer- I don’t really do gratuitous shots but I am an incorrigible butt dancer and had been doing one and well… it was a convention and I was hopped on sugar.
Many thanks to Catherine Scholtz (photos 1 and 3), Ange (butt shot) and Sylvie (photos 2 and 5) for the artistry behind the lense :)
Most is scratch built (direct modeled in fibreglass or sculpted molded and cast) some is from found parts destroyed and reassembled. The only pieces not made in this way were the wig (custom dyed) and boots (it depends on how well I can walk as to what footwear I use :) ). Yeah, forgot to mention I’ve got a degenerative disease that affects my joints and soft tissue (and on ocasion internal organs) so it’s just that little bit hard to actually make stuff. But it’s my bliss, my addiction of choice :)
Currently upgrading the costume to be crisper in detail. And light up :) Slowly saving for Celebration 6 and Dragon Con incidentals as well as the last of the resin and paints and electronics so I can take this costume with me :)
Oh and to see the process behind this costume I have a thread on SWNZ and other places (tdh, therpf, mando mercs) but I’m a proud kiwi so go look there ;)
