Pyromaniac... by queencattabby Pyromaniac... by queencattabby
Character: Dark Phoenix
Series: X-Men
When: Supanova Sydney Saturday 2011 (Best group - Whoo!)
Photographer: :iconbubisadrunk: (THANK YOU!)
Costume made, worn by and picture edit: :iconqueencattabby:

I really shouldn't be up late playing around in photoshop... I really should be working on my next two costumes (due in two weeks... argh...) but I just started playing with this pic and couldn't really stop :)
Prepare yourselves... this photo was taken during a mini-shoot at the con after our proper photoshoot there will be plenty more fire photos... I do like fire so ^-^

I'm really into strong female characters at the moment! Love X-men love crazy ass evil Phoenix and had OH so much fun teasing this wig...

This costume really didn't take long at all - probably the fastest I've done. This is because I came back from holiday thinking 'sweet I have two weeks to make a costume...easy...' nup... only one week... Also I was rather stupid and made myself a pair of gloves, realised I screwed them up, spent another 4 hours making another pair only to realise that the first were correct. I know now that I'm not the best worker under pressure... :)

OK enough typing... to bed with me!
I really enjoyed being apart of this awesome group it was an awesome con!

It's fantastic! If there's one thing about Phoenix that stands out beyond her power, its her HAIR! When you have off-the-register telekinesis, you can go crazy with the amount of body you can have in your hair! Great costume, great pic! You make a fab Phoenix!

Thank you so mucrh and sorry for the late reply!
I had SO much fun playing with this wig! I teased it up to hilarous proportions before I got in trouble from the other group members and needed to deflate it a bit... I agree the hair is so important and really needs to look a little crazy ^-^
Thanks again!

Dark Phoenix does not appologize! She obliterates! Really, tho, I hope you can do more Phoenix in the future!

We'll be doing a big X-men shoot in November so there will be plenty more images when the weather warms up and the bodysuits come out once again...

I'm working on my latest dream cosplay, if I'm lucky I'll be able to debut it some time this year >_< First time making a bodysuit, heavily modding a wig, liquid latex, UV contacts and paint... OMG >____________< I'll be lucky if I get to do anything in between!

Um, um, um, we're looking at sometime towards the end of the year when it's not freezing cold >_< But working on everything throughout the year so I don't burn out on it. Not sure if I'll actually bring Queen of Blades out b/c it's not transport friendly, but need to find somewhere I can take Ghost Kerrigan to >___________<

Hey as soon as you have a good raw image for me I will do some of my magic for you, if you are still interested. Also love the costume.

I was OH so hoping you'd say that! I would love to steal your skills to edit a picture for me, thank you so much!
This photo was taken outside the convention during a quick minishoot we had. We'll be having a full photoshoot in early November where I'm hoping to get some hair flipping/spinning/moving/action shots for you to work with.
Thanks again for the offer I am really REALLY looking forward to seeing what you come up with ^-^

I don't rly like the full body XD Just kinda waist up or closer. Even upper chest up would prob look cooler to shop?

Thanks hun <3

queencattabby Featured By Owner Jul 6, 2011
If I looked as good in that costume as you did I'd want to show it off ^-^ But I think you're right chest up would probably look better framing wise ^-^
All I need now is some free time and no future costumes to make... grrrr ^-^
