Bombshell Batwoman: #52 Kate Kane
I feel in love with Bombshell Batwomans Design the moment I saw it.
I decided to style the full costume after vintage woman’s baseball uniforms and the movie A League of Their Own. I did some slight modern updates to keep it Batwomans style, like the a-symmetrical front + piping. I hand embroidered the Gotham Knights crest on the front of the uniform and bat symbol on my hat. I also did an overhaul on my bat which included sanding off all the logos and old finish, painting on the new design and finishing it with some fresh coats of varathane.

I will have VIP Keys on Thursday and Friday for Courtyards costume contest- King & Queen of Cosplay. Come and find me when you’re in costume and you might walk away with a VIP key.
The Courtyard Superhero HQ is located in the Petco Interactive Zone. They’ll have makeup arts available all weekend and will even have Greg Nicotero (Special FX creator for “The Walking Dead”) conducting a makeup transformation tutorial on the Saturday!
I can’t wait for comic con to start!!!
This sword was a joint project between my boyfriend Jeff and I. I patterned out the sword then Jeff and I cut the pieces out of pine. Jeff sanded down the shape of the sword using a belt sander. I casted two oval gems out of resin to attach to the sword. We glued everything together using wood glue+sawdust with an adjoining dowling piece running through it.
I painted the sword using Kryloan Mettalic Gold Ore then dry brushed in some shadows. I wrapped the handle in black leather. I applied metal tape (meant for air ducts) to the blade and then uses 0000 fine steel wool to dull the shine.
I’m blasting off to San Diego Comic-Con International next week!
I won’t be at a booth so it will be a giant game of hide and seek to find me. I will be stopping by the large outdoor Marvel and DC photoshoots on Fri/Sat to see all the great costumes so that’s your best bet if you want to track me down. If you see me out of costume don’t be afraid to stop me and say Hi
Friday- Bombshell Batwoman *NEW*
Saturday- Phoenix Five Magik
In any photographers want to shoot send me a message and we can make arrangements.
ATOMIC LOLLIPOP 2014
APOP is a 3-Day geek festival that’s a regular fan convention + carnival + music festival + all weekend dance party. Basically is always alot of fun because you can gladiator fight your friends in a bouncy castle while in full costume!
This year it was held at The Ontario Science Center which makes a super cool venue. Attendees were granted late night access of the Science Center which meant crowd free SCIENCE. It was great running around the exhibits and re-living elementary school field trips. I was lucky enough to shoot with Kevin Chan/SolarTempest in the Rainforest exhibit as Poison Ivy while it was 100% empty, so sweet! I also did a shoot with Paul Hillier in the tall grass while he wore a Batman mask, because that just makes sense.
On the sunday Meg/Honeysaliva and I went into The Science of Rock and Roll exhibit and became Rock Stars. We also produced the best 3D photo ever by replicating a example stock image of two little boys… SUPER STARS.
Usagi also tried out Medical School and realized it was not for her, after successfully killing Alex. So we became astronauts instead.
I did two panels over the weekend: One on portraying your character at conventions and in photos and another on Fabrication and Sewing. If any attendees have additional questions feel free to ask away :D
