I remember playing Metroid & Super Metriod on my Super Nintendo for hours on end when I was just a kid. I truly did love playing the bounty hunter Samus Aran. And when it was revealed, *gasp*, Samus was a girl! I remember even then, a twinge of pride that I had been playing a [...]
DragonCon 2012 has come and gone…in the blink of an eye.
Per normal, our geeky vacation was filled with a horde of out of town friends, insane costumes, Film/TV stars, panels and more drinks than you can shake a sonic screwdriver at. And like every recent year, I didn’t carry a camera to capture all the [...]
It’s been a while… But Avengers is back baby!!
And season 3 starts off with none other than a visit from Kang the Conqueror played by Grant Imahara from Mythbusters.
Look for more of Kang AND Future Tony in the upcoming weeks from Avengers Assemble the Series!
Until then, please watch, share and enjoy the nerd parody fun! [...]
Another new costume.. Another fun shoot with BGZ Studios.
This is the first time in my costuming life that I have planed a costume around a wig. I came across this exceptional purple wig and just had to find something fun, exciting, and hopefully dealing with pointy objects, to do with it. Ultimate Alliance 2 Psylocke [...]
What happens when you mix my extreme love of Dark Phoenix, with a great photographer and lots of REAL FIRE. Outside of a few 2nd and 3rd degree burns. One of the most exciting and fulfilling photoshoots I have ever had the pleasure to be a part of!
When Darrell Ardita of BGZ Studios first asked [...]
This was a fun little experiment with angles and lighting in the new studio. What do you think? Success?
New Wonder Woman and Donna Troy photoshoot shot by the ever amazing Chris Burns
I have had the immense pleasure to shoot with Marvel’s own Judy Stephens quite a few times now. To put it mildly, she is a spunky, multi-colored hair having, firecracker with a camera!
So it was an honor to sit down with her for a Marvel.com cosplay interview (Click below image for the full interview).
Big thanks [...]
DragonCon 2011 saw the debut of Madame Hydra and her Goons. This costume was an amazing design adventure for me. It was the first time that I utilized real Python skin into my leather work. Along with the boots, the python skin really added interesting texture to the overall look of the costume. This texture [...]
Recently while at DragonCon 2011 in Atlanta Georgia, I had the opportunity to sit down with Jon Waterhouse and MTV Geek for a interview about all things cosplay. It was a great time and some of my great friends are included too!
Click the link below for the full interview.
I first got the call to work on ‘X-Men: First Class‘ while shopping for ‘The Change Up‘ (Ryan Reynolds movie after Green Lantern). When I tell you that I squealed in the middle of Lenox mall like a 14 yea-old that just came home to find Justin Bieber in her bedroom, that would be an [...]
Ever wonder what superheros do on their day off??
Well director Ruckus Skye answers this question with this fun little short film (shot on 8mm) for Avengers Assemble the Series
I have to admit, it was a lot of fun running around town dressed as Ms. Marvel. I only wish we had someone filming the reactions of [...]
When I first started seeing teaser art for Marvel’s ‘Age of X’ Legacy (aka Reaper or Rogue), I knew immediately I had to do the new design. Thanks to the amazing help of Clay Mann, we were able to make these costumes a reality. My wonderful partner Chris Burns allowed me to dress him as [...]
I once again had the pleasure of posing for Felipe Massafera, this time as Arisia for the cover of Green Lantern: Emerald Warriors #7! It’s always such a neat process going from thumbnail sketch to finished cover that I thought I would share the evolution.
First, Felipe sends me a rough sketch of the approved cover. [...]
I have wanted to do a feather themed shoot for quite some time. So I jumped at the chance to snag my good friend Alex Appel into a photo-shoot when she was visiting from Toronto. Alex is a talented actress and one of the most beautiful people I know, so it was a super-fun photo [...]
So I have been a busy little girl as of late.
I had the amazing fortune of ending up working on ‘The Change Up‘ with People’s sexiest man of the year Ryan Reynolds, Tron’s Olivia Wilde, Jason Bateman & Leslie Mann as a Set Costumer. Holy crap this cast is fun to work with! As you [...]
This is a BIG one I can check-off the ol’ Nerd Bucket list!
I’m on the cover of Amazing Spider-man! Ok, well it’s not ME me, it’s Mary Jane.. But I posed for it! That counts? Right?!?!
This Amazing Spider-man, ‘Woman of Marvel‘ cover is brought to you by the awesome John Tyler Christopher. Love him, hug [...]
I was hired by Turner and [adult swim] to create a creature for a Pizza Hut commercial. It was challenging to make a monster that was believable, whom you recognized immediately (but not exact, due to copyright issues), but not too gruesome to hock pizza. I also had to recreate the ‘monsters’ exact look for [...]
The first time I saw this comic at Oxford, I squealed while jumping up and down, with a heaping side of uber girly flailing. Not one of my more composed moments. But this was the first cover piece that has gone public since we started working with the awesome Felipe Massafera; so cut me some [...]
Avengers Assemble the Series is a personal project that has been in development since May of this year. This series follows the adventures of some of Earth’s mightiest heroes. They are called together to face the forces of evil, some of them are true threats, while others are just plain tedious…Or common.
This series has truly [...]
Issue #1 of Top Cow’s ‘Artifacts’ was released last month, but this Witchblade relaunch as already got people talking. John Tyler Christopher’s variant cover has sold out twice, with a third printing on the way. It’s going to be a huge run for Top Cow and a very good thing for my good friend (not [...]
We are WRAPPED with season 1 of ‘The Walking Dead’ here in Atlanta. I can honestly say, that this is the single most fun experience I have ever had on a set. But I think that any time you can say that you are a part of Greg Nicotero’s (KNB Efx Group) makeup team, it’s [...]
At the end of last year, my friend Riddle asked me and a few lovely ladies to participate in a bit of a epic cosplay experiment. She had the amazing idea to gather the unusually large number of veteran Atlanta cosplayers together for a ‘Vanity Fair” style shoot in a non-convention atmosphere. No small feat [...]
I should be trying to get some sleep before heading out at midnight with Yaya, Brian and Chris for Florida SuperCon in Miami, but I am too excited to nap! 11 hour drive with no sleep. Whoo Hoo!!
So while I sit here waiting, car packed to the brim and nothing to do, I guess I [...]
I had the pleasure to shoot with Leonard Jinto again while attending HerosCon. He’s a fun, talented and super easy guy to shoot with. I’m glad that Chris (Bullseye) and I were able collaborate to shoot our newest costumes. Here are some of the fruits of our labor. The whole Silver Sable set can be [...]
